Common Yellowthroat at Balmorhea SP

This morning, while watching the coots and waiting to see if the merganser's would show up again, I caught a flash of yellow in the reeds and saw a male Common Yellowthroat with its black mask and heavy white line. Unlike the female which I observed and photographed at the sluice at Lake Balmorhea, this one did not take much effort to identify. Later, I found another male in a low mesquite bush next to one of the canals at the park.
