Bird with one yellow feather

(Charlotte, NC)



Have seen this bird for months. It is very skittish and hard to photograph. The bird is gray-black but has a yellow feather on its back. I cannot find this bird in any of my books. This is in Charlotte, NC.

Warbler!

Judy, Thank you! I believe you have put me on the right track and I believe my bird to be the Myrtle Warbler version of the Yellow rumped Warbler. The picture in my Audubon book made the Yellow Rumped Warbler look blue rather than gray, which led me astray. Thanks again!
