Yellow-Rumped Warbler – Dendroica coronata – also known as Paruline à croupion jaune (French), Mirtezanger / Geelstuitzanger (Dutch), Kronwaldsänger (German), Dendroica coronata (Italian), Reinita Coronada (Spanish).
Another migratory visitor to much of the Midwest, the Yellow-Rumped Warbler is named for the yellow patch on his rear end. He also has a yellow cap and yellow patches on his shoulders. The pictures above illustrate these.
This guy was pretty high up in the tree, and as I was out at Scott County Park with other people, I was unable to spend a lot of time “stalking” this bird to get better photos. I was stuck with taking a few shots. In any event, the combination of the four photos gives you a good idea as to what the Yellow-Rumped Warbler looks like.
The pictures above are of the male. The female is duller and does not have any black markings.
