|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Yellow-rumped Warbler (Setophaga coronata), a mid-sized New World warbler, breeds from eastern North America west to the Pacific, and southward from there into Western Mexico. Among warblers it is one of the last to leave North America in the fall, and among the first to return. It is an occasional vagrant to the British Isles and Iceland.|
Yellow-rumped Warblers spend the breeding season in mature coniferous and mixed coniferous-deciduous woodlands (such as in patches of aspen, birch, or willow). In the western U.S. and in the central Appalachian Mountains, they are found mostly in mountainous areas. In the Pacific Northwest and the Northeastern U.S., they occur all the way down to sea level wherever conifers are present. During winter, Yellow-rumped Warblers find open areas with fruiting shrubs or scattered trees, such as parks, streamside woodlands, open pine and pine-oak forest, dunes (where bayberries are common), and residential areas.
These birds are one of North America's most abundant neotropical migrants. They are primarily insectivorous. The species is perhaps the most versatile foragers of all warblers.
I took this picture at Edwin B Foresythe Wildlife Refuge in NJ during 2013 fall migration.

I see you like to photograph these beautiful warblers during the spring migration. I too wait every year for this special time when you can find many species congregated in one area. I like to go up to Magee Marsh, which is located on the shores of Lake Erie.
Your cute little Yellow-rumped Warbler is certainly attractive, as it feeds on what appears to be juniper berries. Nicely focused and showing vivid yet natural colors.
