A Visit From the Yellow-Rumped Warbler

I had a new visitor to my feeders today, the Yellow-Rumped Warbler. It was pretty exciting for me since he was a first time visitor.

This bird is a slate gray bird with black streaks on the breast. 

He has a yellow patch on the head, flanks, and rump. 

He has a white chin and belly. 

He also has two white wing bars. I read that this yellow-rumped warbler rarely comes to suet feeders but I first saw him on one of my suet feeders. 

Today was an exciting first for me. I am thankful for this visit from the warbler plus I am thankful the sun is shining, and it is a beautiful spring day here in Western Kentucky - Judy.

  3. ...a Yellow-Rumped Warbler is new to me, thanks!

  4. What a good looking bird! What type of seed do you usually feed, besides the suet? I like the different types of birds that you attract. Thanks for linking up today and have a great weekend.

    1. Michelle, I read they eat insects, berries, and rarely come to suet feeders.

  5. What a wonderful little bird! Great photos!
    I have never seen one, but maybe I will someday. We are in their migratory route.

  6. Wonderful photos - so detailed! I saw my first one last year - a little flock was passing through. - Karen
