Common Yellowthroat

I keep commenting on how difficult it is to take pictures of Common Yellowthroats even though I keep posting pictures of them. :-) I came across this pair of male and female Yellowthroats in the tall grass along one the newly opened road paths at TRNWR. I first saw the male sitting on a weed stock before it flew away and then saw the female in a similar situation. This is the first time I've seen a female. At first I thought it was some type of warbler, but started suspect it was a female as it seemed to stick close by the male. I also suspect they were building a nest as I walked past the same area a few times and found them there each time. Also, notice that the female has a dried blade of grass in its beak.
