Magnolia Warbler Female

Dendroica magnolia

Description:

Warbler type bird in my back yard in Chattanooga, TN. The last picture is of I am guessing her mate, but extremely camera shy so that was the best picture I could get. He had very distinctive yellow markings on this shoulders and tail.

Habitat:

My backyard :)

You're welcome. Of course, Liam was kind enough to make the original ID.

Thank you Sarah,
Myrtle, Audubons and the Yellow-rumped Warbler are as well under going evolution before our eyes...though genetic deferences play a part here more so than hybridizing - i think that the mentioned Warblers may have evolved via the same route.
Thankfully i only have to deal with the Yellow-rumped/Butterbutt... decifering who's who in areas where they mix would be a fun headache .

I have updated this spotting with additional ID information. If you have trouble finding such information in the future or in updating your other spottings, please let me know.

The 3rd photo is a female American Redstart. Didn't see that at first.

ooo that does look like her. but the 3rd picture does not look like a male magnolia warbler because he has yellow spots on tail and shoulder and a white belly?
