That's it!!! A Yellow Rump! I've heard of them! :)
Never mind what he's called, you captured him well!
Isn't he sweet. For a moment I thought he might be the same as the bird that I just posted, but they are a bit different.
I think we have those too. :) Good job. He´s a cute little fellow!
"Does this yellow make my butt look big?"No idea what s/he might be. I'm even more orinthologically challenged than botanically challenged. Love the photos though!
I have no idea, either, but he sure is cute.
It's always the way with animals isn't it? I know that my cats, who should be more amenable to photos, either turn away when they see me approaching camera in hand, or start cleaning their 'bits'! :D Glad your patience paid off - that's a lovely photo.
So cute little fellow and great colours in your photos! :)
In the second from last photo I think I see an airplane in the distance......Great shots!
Apparently there are two subspecies -- one has the broken eye ring. As seen in your capture. Female. I was out birding two weeks ago and ran into a migrating flock of male yellow rumped (migrating through the valley).Their colors were primed for courtship and I was quite shocked at their flamboyance.
Wonderful captures of this little creature. I like your bird photos Lisa.
Sometimes if we wait they DO turn around for us.
I think it's a pine siskin - the males have yellow tipped wings - and it kind of looks like that's the tip of the wing and not the rump. All of the other markings match the siskin. :)
A yellow rumped warbler I believe! What a beauty!
Did I name this bird? If I named birds, they would all have obvious names like this one.
Hi Lisa! Pretty sure this gal is a female palm warbler. Warblers get pretty tough to identify sometimes (I still have issues...) Yellow-rumped warblers have white on the crissum (where this one is yellow) and yellow on the flanks (the side). Nice shots - warblers are tough little guys to photograph!
