Yellow Rumped Warbler

My Skywatch post is below this one but if you don't feel like skipping you can use this one was SkyWatch since this is skywatching too. The bird just got in the shot.
:-)

I think this is a yellow rumped warbler. I almost couldn't identify it then at the last minute I saw a photo of one that looked this this. At first I thought it was another goldfinch but the goldfinch has a solid yellow breast and this one just had patches of yellow. Please correct me if I still have it wrong.

I love the soft focus pulls your eye in on the bird & how you captured him on the stalks like that and the blue sky in the background - Great Shots!!!

Yes, this is a "butter butt". Yellow Rumped warblers have several "populations" that tend to mix in your area. This one is of the "Audubon's Warbler" population. To give you an idea of the variation, here are some shots I took up in San Jose last December.

BTW, usually when I run into a blog with music, I scramble to turn it off. I LOVE your tunes! I thinks I'll just let it play while I make may rounds.
