Yellow-rumped Warbler - Audubon's

Dendroica coronata

Description:

The yellow throat on this bird confirms it as an Audubon's race, the most common Yellow-rumped Warbler in this area. The Myrtle race, which can be seen occasionally, has a white throat and is common in northern and eastern North America

Notes:

Lots of warblers here at the Beaver Pond Nature trail in Manning Park. This means one important thing = lots of bugs for them to eat, especially mosquitos. We didn't stay as long as we would have liked as we had no bug repellant with us!

Thanks! I am going back to Manning Park Beaver Pond where I saw this bird and hope to see some young tomorrow. This one is the male in breeding plumage.

Just added another photo to this spotting to show how much less colour this warbler has from the back view. If he flew off right now, we would see the bright yellow rump, for which it is named.
