Olive-crowned yellowthroat

The olive-crowned yellowthroat (Geothlypis semiflava) is a species of bird in the family Parulidae. It is found in Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Panama. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist shrubland and heavily degraded former forest.

The Olive-crowned Yellowthroat occurs in two disjunct subspecies, the more northerly ranging from eastern Honduras south to northwest Panama, while the southern taxon is found on the Pacific slope of western Colombia and western Ecuador. It has been suggested that these two might be better treated as separate species. Some observers have commented on the potential similarities between this yellowthroat and the Kentucky Warbler (Oporornis formosus), suggesting a link between these two genera, which have been merged in the past. Nonetheless, in plumage, both sexes of the Olive-crowned Yellowthroat broadly recall the Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas), although males lack a gray upper border to the face mask, and both sexes possess more uniformly yellow underparts and brighter green upperparts.
