A little bird with a rusty head that contrasts nicely with his daffodil yellow body striped with rufous crimson.

The Mangrove Warbler (Setophaga petechia) is a subspecies of the Yellow Warbler (Setophaga petechia), a bird more typically seen in North America.

Although this warbler favors a more tropical climate, such as Mexico or Central America, a tiny colony has begun in the southern part of Texas.

There is a chance that this bird will be designated as a separate species.

The male has a rust-colored head and the rest of his body is yellow with rufous flecks on the breast and flanks.

His wings and tail are greenish-yellow with golden edges. The bill is pointed and narrow.

This species’ female is similar to the northwestern Yellow Warbler, but duller. Her coloring is more yellow below and greenish-yellow above.

Her breast and sides lack or have barely noticeable stripes. She has dark green feathers and a tail having yellow margins, just like the male.

This bird lives in the coastal mangrove of northern Tropical And subtropical Regions, as its name suggests.

The yellow warbler breeds in May/June, but the mangrove sparrow breeds all year.

American yellow warblers have already been reported to rear a brood of up to 75 young in as little as 45 days.

Tropical populations, on the other hand, require more than 100 days to reproduce.

Males court girls by singing 3,200 or more songs every day.

They, like other songbirds, are serially monogamous; around 10% of mangrove warbler males and roughly half of American yellow warbler guys are bigamous.

Few, if any, American yellow warblers reproduce more than once a year, and only 5% of female mangroves warblers do so.

If the first effort at breeding fails, either mother will normally try and raise a second offspring.
