Early this spring it was my pleasure to add the Yellow-rumped Warbler to my 2016 list. This male was hopping around the cherry blossoms at the Rose Gardens in Stanley Park.
There are two subspecies of the Yellow-rumped Warbler. According to AllAboutBirds.org the Myrtle version is located in the East so that would make these the Audubon version.
The two pictures above are of the male, and I don’t often catch the females (maybe just because they’re not as flashy) but did manage to capture a female last fall at the bird Sanctuary.
