A Yellow-Rumped Warbler Stops By
I happened to be outside taking pictures of some of the beautiful flowering trees in the yard, and spotted a bird high up in the tree that looked different from our normal feathered visitors. I got out the long lens and took a few photos as it jumped around the tree. After a very close look at the photos, I believe this bird was a yellow-rumped warbler, the first I have ever seen. Here are a few photos, maybe some of my birding followers can confirm if my ID is correct. Granted, these pictures were enlarged quite a bit because the bird was very high up in the tree, but I think it is enough to make the ID.
