[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Three closely related North American bird forms—the eastern Myrtle Warbler, its western counterpart, Audubon's Warbler, and the Central American Goldman's Warbler—are periodically lumped as the Yellow-rumped Warbler

The Yellow-rumped Warbler breeds from eastern North America west to the Pacific, and southward from there into parts of Mexico. It is a migratory bird which travels to Central America and the Caribbean for winters. 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.

In summers, males of both forms have streaked backs of black on slate blue, white wing patches, a streaked breast, and conspicuous yellow patches on the crown, flank, and rump. Audubon's Warbler also sports a yellow throat patch, while the Myrtle Warbler has a white throat and eye stripe, and a contrasting black cheek patch. Females of both forms are more dull, with brown streaking front and back, but still have noticeable yellow rumps. Goldman's Warbler, of Guatemala, resembles Audubon's but has a white lower border to the yellow throat and otherwise darker plumage; males replace the slate blue of Audubon's with black.

Hi Jane, you have such clear blue skys down there, always great light! This is a good shot of this pretty Warbler, I like the POV showing his marrkings on the feathers and his beak. Nice detail and the colours are great.

Hi Jane,
Nice pov and composition. Exposure and color contrast are great. May be too much crop that the image a bit grainy. A beautiful picture anyway.

Hi Jane

Nice composition and a lovely pose from your warbler. Amazing blue sky!



Buena composición del conjunto. Me gusta especialmente la posición del ave que da naturalidad a la fotografía. Enfoque algo justo.
