"Audubon" type Yellow-rumped Warbler

"Audubon" type Yellow-Rumped Warbler
I managed to locate another warbler species (Orange-crowned Warbler) for the year during a recent trip out to central and northern Arizona. In addition to the two subspecies of Orange-crowned Warbler I found out there including a bright lutescens I also found several Audubon-type Yellow-rumped Warblers in several habitats including this individual along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park. These will likely be the last species and subspecies of warblers I will find this year but you never know.

November warblers

During a morning outing at UMASS I came across at least five Yellow-rumped Warblers despite the frosty temps. This was the only warbler of the day and likely the only warbler for the month now that the temperature have taken a nose dive.
