How to identify

Male Yellowhammers are unmistakeable with a bright yellow head and underparts, brown back streaked with black, and a chestnut rump. In flight, it shows white outer tail feathers. They're often seen perched on top of a hedge or bush, singing. Its recent population decline makes it a UK Birds of Conservation Concern Red List species.
