Yellow-rumped warbler (Setophaga coronata)
Of all the warblers that live in Ontario during the warmer months, Yellow-rumped Warblers are the hardiest: the first to arrive in spring and the last to leave in fall.
Can you guess how this warbler got it's name?
Still, I was surprised to see this one was still here a couple of weeks ago, foraging on a beach on the northern side of Lake Ontario.
Insect eaters during the warmer months, they readily change over to eating berries in the fall.
I am linking to I'd Rather B Birdin' HERE.
Now that is a beautiful bird I will have to keep my eye open for it around here. I have no idea how it got it's name. Hug B
He is a pretty little thing! Maybe I should get some binoculars and try to identify the birds...
But the dogs would get so mad at me - they are already having to wait while I photograph everything that doesn't smell!
What a beautiful little bird!
Cute! I'm sure he's headed farther south by now.
The yellow is so attractive.
Beautiful shots of this little bird.. very easy to see how that name came about!
The yellow spot is very charming indeed!
God bless you!
The YRW is a cutie! They do seem to hang around late in the season. Great shots of the Yellow-rump!
Oh, he is beautiful and co cute !
I can imagine taxonomists debating on what to call this bird. Looks like he got tagged with a paintball.
cute little butter-butt. haven't seen them here, yet.
Nice photos! I love the little yellow patch on the back of his feathers.
They are so cute! I saw them last year for the first time--earlier this spring. I learned the term "butter butt" from TexWis. :)
They stop at my feeders in Northern Wisconsin every spring, so that's where they go... Canada!!!!
Wow, what a rump!!
He better get peddling!
Hi EG Don't know what else you would call this birds as it describes it perfectly. great shot.
It sure is flashing its rump for you!
That patch of yellow on its back makes it so attractive.
what a handsome bird and so easy to see where it got its name from!
I have been surprised that the birds in my area have not completely left yet either. I have never seen one with yellow in the back. Do they warbler nice?
It's a beautiful bird!
I have never seen or heard of this bird. I like the yellow rump! Thanks for sharing your birding with us, EG.
Excellent shots of the reason for it's name. These are cute little birds.
That little speck of yellow, almost looks like he fell into a can of paint. So charismatic.

Well he certainly deserves his name- what a pretty sight to see.
Oh God, I've watched one too many episodes of Glee because you way "Warbler" I think "pre-school, hi-pitched boy show choir".
Lovely shots of the real deal. :)
What a wonderful dash of yellow!
I don't think we have those this far south. Pretty little guy.
That is some birthmark.
He is a beautiful bird.
Cute little bird! It's easy to see where he got his name from.
A lovely little bird!Thanks for sharing!
...and you captured the warbler perfectly for its name. Well done. Great images.
What a very sweet little bird EG, he would be welcome in my garden any time.
Tough little guy!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
A lovely post for the bird theme!
Great bird and beautiful photos.
A pretty and precious yellow rump! It's a nice touch of warm color amid almost-winter:)
No questions on how that one got its name! Great captures.
I loved the barn in the post above...and the collage, too. Specially that nuthatch...
I so love this little warbler. I want to look it up...cannot remember if I have before or not...if I have I don't remember what I learned. I just wonder if it comes here to this area.
They fly south to CA to visit us. :-)
