[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Yellow-rumped Warbler is by far the most abundant warbler during fall, winter and spring migration. As much as 80 to 90 % of the warblers spotted during the migrations are Yellow-rumped.

To me these colorful slate blue, white, yellow and black marked warblers are overlooked because of their abundance. I can't count the number of times I have heard fellow birders say (oh it's just another yellow-rump) after they realized the bird they had spotted in the brush was one of these beautiful birds.

I will post another image of it singing in a WS.

Hi Ron,great face to face with this warbrler,a perfect capture another time despite the very dark light,lovely background too. Have a nice weekend and thanks for the singing WS too,Luciano

Hello Ron,
Beautiful bird and very well captured. I like WS picture's pose of the bird but I think you reject it due to soft tail. Nice colour; mainly yellow. Good details and well BG.
Thanks and regards,
Nice species,
