Uncommon Birds at the Feeder: Yellow-rumped (“Myrtle”) Warbler

Myrtle Warblers are another harbinger of the changing seasons as they seem to show up as soon as the leaves change color. My Audubon Guide tells me this is one of the only warblers that will regularly spend the winter in the northern United States. We look forward seeing them around — and if I can catch one perching in sunlight, I’ll take another photograph!
