BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER

28 Comments

One of the first spring migrants to our region, yellow-rumps are a sure sign of the change of seasons. Our local reserve had so many that when we asked a fellow photographer in passing what he had seen, he answered “nothing, just yellow-rumps”.  As they remain for only 2-3 weeks I can’t imagine tiring of them that quickly.

  6. Wonderful photo of this handsome yellow-rump, Belinda. Always great when you catch a glimpse or photo of the bright yellow rump. I love to watch them hunting for insects, flipping through the air.

  7. The ole ‘butter butt’ as they call them here. They have been gone from the south for a while now. Most Warblers here are moving out. Some heading your way, others down to South America.

  15. They are such pretty birds. We see them here once in a while. A sad thing I once saw was a mother yellow-rumped warbler feeding a baby cowbird that was bigger than she was. The mother cowbird had presumably laid its egg in the warbler’s nest and when that egg hatched, the baby cowbird crowded out the warbler babies.
