Back in late Summer in Berthier, a Yellow-rumped Warbler (Dendroica coronata) is perched on the top of a plant, ready to fly.

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.

Hi Mario,

These birds have made their way to Arizona. I have never seen one pose so beautifully - you must have been very quick to get this. A beautiful little warbler with amazing details of his face and plummage. Colors are perfect. A superb composition.

Hi Mario. So near, yet it must have been quite far. The sharpness is wonderful. So is the colour and the alert stance of the little bird. Charming. Regards and best wishes for Christmas and new year. Klaudio.

Hi Mario,
just at the right moment, the pose seems the bird is ready for flying away soon.
Excellent shot again, wonderful and sharp, thanks

Bonjour mario,

Cette Paruline à croupion jaune sur la branche semble être en alerte. La prise de vue permet de voir avec précision les détails de son plumage et ces couleurs. Le photographe a bien capturé son sujet. Merci du partage.
