Yellow-rumps are here!
Yellow-rumped Warblers are one of the most common migrant warbler.
Look for their tell-tale yellow rump, a no-brainer for their ID
Yellow-rumped Warblers have arrived here. These ubuquitous spring migrants are one of the earliest spring migrant warblers to pass through here. We are first alerted to them by their song, a rather nondescript trill, which can rise or fall slightly. Best of all, they are just the advance guard of warbler spring migration. We look forward to a rainbow parade of migrant warblers arriving soon.
