A Yellow-Rumped Warbler (Dendroica coronata) photographed last Summer in Berthier.

From www.birds.cornell.edu
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Cool fact: One of our most abundant, widespread, and best-known warblers, the Yellow-rumped Warbler winters farther north than any other warbler. The winter diet of berries, especially the high-fat berries of the evergreen bayberry, enables Yellow-rumps to winter as far north as the Great Lakes in the East and Seattle in the West.
Yellow-rumped Warblers form large flocks during migration and winter, especially in coastal areas where bayberries are abundant. Birds wintering in the interior feed upon cedar, poison ivy and other berries, and seeds. Yellow-rumped Warblers display a wider range of foraging strategies for hunting insects than most other warblers. They may often be seen sallying from treetops after flying insects or searching for insects on tree trunks in the manner of Brown Creepers; at other times they foliage-glean in the manner of other warblers. They may also be seen foraging on the ground.
Description: Yellow-rumped Warblers are relatively large warblers distinguished in all adult plumages by bright yellow rumps and white spots near the tips of the outer tail feathers. The two regional types differ in appearance, and there is a marked seasonal change in plumage for both males and females.
Breeding adult male Myrtle Warblers have black cheeks and a narrow white supercilium, white throat, and gray upperparts that are streaked with black. There are two white wing bars, yellow patches on the sides of the breast and on the crown, and white underparts with black streaks along the flanks and across the breast. Spring females have a similar pattern, but they are slightly duller and the gray upperparts are washed with brown, the cheeks are dark gray rather than black, and the yellow patches are somewhat smaller and paler. In nonbreeding plumages, both males and females are more dull and brown in color. Males and females in nonbreeding plumage may look alike.

Quand je pense que tu as attendu presque 6 mois pour poster une merveille pareille !!!!
Ahhh je t'assure bien que si j'avais pu faire une photo de cette qualité elle aurait été sur le site le jour même
Non seulement la paruline est parfaitement nette mais les couleurs sont sublimes
Bravo Mario et toutes mes amitiés,

Beautifully captured of this Warbler!

Hi Mario,

You did a very good composition. I like the plant bird is sitting on beeing clear with details on the blurry backgorund. Bird is clear with good details and good natural colors.

Thank for sharing,

Bonsoir Mario,

Bonjour Mario,
Magnifique, superbe compsition, le jeu des coulerus est extraordianires et la nettté est comme toujours parfaite.

Hello Mario,
Very nice capture, the clarity is perfect and the overall exposure is spot on and shows your subject off very well. TFS :)

Bonsoir Mario,

Ta note donne beaucoup de renseignements. Cette Paruline à croupion jaune sur la branche semble ignorer la présence du photographe. Les détails et les couleurs de l'oiseau sont clairs et précis. Le sujet est bien cadré. Bonne soirée.
