The Yellowhammer is a robust 15.5–17 cm long bird, with a thick seed-eater's bill. The male has a bright yellow head, yellow underparts, and a heavily streaked brown back. The female is much duller, and more streaked below. The familiar, if somewhat monotonous, song of the cock is often described as A little bit of bread and no cheese.

The Yellowhammer is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Yellowhammer, Emberiza citrinella, is a passerine bird in the bunting family Emberizidae, which breeds across Europe and much of Asia. The Yellowhammer was introduced to New Zealand in 1862 and is now common and widespread there. It is probably more abundant in New Zealand now than in Europe where it is in serious decline, (in the UK the species fell by 54% between 1970 and 2003). In Europe and Asia most birds are resident, but some far northern birds migrate south in winter. More

yellowhammer nickname was applied to the Confederate soldiers from Alabama when a company of young cavalry soldiers from Huntsville, under the command of Rev. D.C. Kelly, arrived at Hopkinsville, KY, where Gen. Forrest's troops were stationed. The officers and men of the Huntsville company wore fine, new uniforms, whereas the soldiers who had long been on the battlefields were dressed in faded, worn uniforms. On the sleeves, collars and coattails of the new calvary troop were bits of brilliant yellow cloth. More

In summer the male Yellowhammer can look as yellow as a canary, but with thin black lines around the face and a rustier breast. Females are duller but clearly yellow and the juveniles are duller still, sometimes showing no yellow at all. They can be told from most other streaky brown birds by the combination of a rich chestnut rump and obvious white outer tail feathers. Habitat Breeds and winters in hedgerows and scrub, especially gorse and hawthorn thickets. More

Yellowhammer abundance began to decline on farmland in the mid-1980s and the decline has continued ever since, the CBC trend being replicated in the CES and BBS results. The woodland CBC trend shows a longer term decline, perhaps showing problems for the species in this secondary (perhaps sink) habitat before they were apparent in the preferred farmland habitats. Yellowhammer breeding performance has tended to increase and there is some evidence that survival rates have been lower during the period of decline (Siriwardena et al. More

joined us here at Yellowhammer Press, adding his muted, eerie portraits to the eclectic YHP mix. Relying on images emerging straight from his imagination, Peacock avoids detail and instead lays down his subjects in broad raw strokes. The hushed blue and green backdrops are subdued starting points for surprisingly aggressive figures, half-formed and leaving it up to the viewer to conjure up his own ideas of what may lurk in Peacock’s shadowy forms.
