Bird in a Bush

Not to waste the spring I threw down everything, 
And ran into the open world 
To sing what I could sing... 
To dance what I could dance! 
And join with everyone! 
I wandered with a reckless heart beneath the newborn sun. 
— Roman Payne 

I am not familiar with this bird - possibly a type of flycatcher. Seen near a wetlands area and pond. This was taken in the spring, as you can tell from the blossoms on the tree. I am not sure what type of tree that is either.

Kerri,

That's a very pretty picture of yellow! I have seen a Great Crested Flycatcher before. It could be a Least Flycatchter but it looks more like a molted Eastern Phoebe to me with the dark brown head, white chest and yellow belly. They have a loud song. But I'm no expert, that's for sure!

Hi Kerri, this is a great post as usual. I like how you were able to capture the bird in the yellow bush. I haven't a clue what that bird is so if its a flycatcher so be it...LOL

What a great catch Kerri! We learn something new everyday. I've sure never heard of that one before.

I love the yellow blossoms on the tree! I was telling my husband last night about the interesting birds you have in your area - I love seeing them!

Great shot for project yellow!

I am almost certain that the shrub the bird is sitting in is "spicebush". We have a lot of it here and this is the time of year that it blooms. I photographed some yesterday, but was not happy with what I got.
