Frank Chapman, founder of the Christmas Bird Count, wrote this of the Yellow Warbler: β€œIn his plumes dwells the gold of the sun, in his voice its brightness and good cheer. We have not to seek him in the depths of the forest, the haunt of nearly all his congeners, he comes to us and makes his home near ours.” Photo by Sheri Merritt.
