Thanks!

Many thanks, everyone! Yes, it is a Yellow-rump, and there is even a better picture of one I got last night uploaded to that same gallery. These are delightful birds, and I'm lucky to be able to shoot through a window that looks out on the backyard, and from a very close distance.

It might be a yellow rumped warbler. Isn't it beautiful?

I forgot to add that I think it may be an Orange-crowned warbler.
