Rare Yellow-rumped Audubon’s Warbler?
This strange yellow-rumped warbler came to eat peanut butter this morning. It was silver, it had the normal yellow-rumped warbler markings, but no yellow rump! Is this an Audubon’s subspecies, a Mytrle x Audubon’s hybrid, or just a normal myrtle yellow rump? Any ideas?
First day of GBBC birds
It’s the first day of the GBBC (Great Backyard Bird Count) and the feeders are packed! Finches, Cardinals, Doves, Jays, Sparrows, and more are at the feeders.

I was sitting outside today watching the birds. There were probably about 50 yellow rumps foraging and eating mosquito hawks in the grass. They come every day and eat peanut butter

The Yellow-rumped Warbler comes every day, multiple times a day, for peanut butter.
The Cardinals visit sometimes, the Chipping Sparrows visit in flocks of about 50 every day, the Yellow-rumped WArbler visits multiple time a day to eat suet, and The Peep visits every day.

Today was a great day for birding! We saw a new lifer: Brown Creeper. We also saw a Brown-headed Nuthatch, a female Yellow-rumped Warbler, a Pine Warbler, and more! Also, yesterday I saw 5 Purple Finches in a tree! (New lifer!)
Need Warbler ID!!!
I am very certain that this is a warbler, and I think it could either be a female Yellow-rumped Warbler, or an Orange-crowned Warbler…
Warbler Galore! (Big Birding Day Part 2)
Sorry for the not-so-great pictures. Aside from the three kinds of warblers, I saw a European Starling, two Ospreys, robins, crows, Tree Swallows, Black-capped Chickadees, Downy Woodpeckers, and White-breasted Nuthatches.

The start of the Warbler migration in Wisconsin!
This beautiful little fellow has been chasing the Black-capped Chickadees around ALL day! They have a ton of energy!
Feeding Yellow-rumped Warblers
A flock of Yellow-rumped Warblers has been feeding for several days in the willows below the Dillon dam. Fun to watch; similar to watching Swallows feed. Very entertaining.
