I said a couple of days back how much trouble I have been having correctly identifying the yellow birds that have appeared in my backyard. Initially, I thought everything I saw was a goldfinch. Then I was told, no – the birds I was seeing were Pine Warblers. Then, the goldfinches actually did show up, followed by more pine warblers. Now, I have seen two more yellow-tinted birds in my yard.
The image above, is a Yellow-rumped Warbler. They are somewhat similar to the Pine Warbler but have yellow below the wings and at the base of the tail. I thought this was an amazing visit until, I spotted another yellowish bird – a Ruby-crowned kinglet at the feeder! I snapped a shot but didn’t get it in sharp focus before he flew off. Now, I have another subject to watch for so I can get a nice portrait to add to my list of winter visitors.
