I've just begun spotting them in the last couple of months (should have retired earlier:). I love warblers' coloring, and their short, pointy beaks!

There are two subspecies of Yellow-rumped Warblers, the Myrtle Warblers and the Audubon Warblers.

The Myrtle Warblers are more common in the East and have a white throat. The Audubon Warblers, common in the West, have a yellow throat as this male warbler does. The other, less colorful bird here, is a female.
