Classic, small warbler with greenish upperparts and a yellow throat and eye stripe. Varies geographically: can show a reddish or greenish crown. Reddish-crowned birds are easily identified, but greenish-crowned birds can be confused with other warblers. Yellow-throated can still be known by the contrast between its grayish belly and bright yellow bib. Found in moist forest, mostly montane forest away from South Africa. Feeds actively in the midstory and canopy. Pretty song is variable but consists of up-and-down series of whistled notes.
