Yellow Rumped Warbler (CYW-Yellow)
Do you see the yellow on this bird’s side? Last April, I saw this flash of yellow up in a tree. I managed to get a few pictures of the moving bird, and then looked it up in my bird guide when I got home. It was a Yellow Rumped Warbler!
It was pretty high up in the tree and it was not sitting still, but I could see spots of yellow that intrigued me.
Here is a closer view. He is hiding his head, but you can see the yellow side and the yellow rump-patch that I was able to use for identification! I was very excited to add this bird to my list of sightings! According to my guidebook, this bird would usually be seen around here in the winter, but I saw it in the spring. And, I haven’t seen one since.
These may not be perfect bird photos, but I still like them. So, maybe you will enjoy them too!
