Yellow Rumped warbler
by: Dana

Yes it is a Yellow Rumped Warbler, Audubon's race. Audobon's are usually in the western United States, and the Myrtle race is usually in the Eastern United States, but this can vary and they do interbreed where their ranges overlap. I live in the east, and have only seen an Audobon's once, it was in my front yard on spring migration last year, and there were other Myrtle's migrating along with it. Beautiful bird!!!!
