Yellow Rumped Warbler, AKA Butter Butt

I have a friend that moderates the Wildlife South photo forums. Jim is a retired photo editor that used to work for National Geographic. He has a love for photographing small birds and the Yellow Rumped Warbler, a little bird he’s nick named the “Butter Butt,” seems to be one of his favorites. Naturally when I get the chance I have to snap a few photos of these little birds to share with him. I had braved the cold the other morning, scraped the frost off of my windows, loaded the kayak and headed over to the reserve to photograph the wild horses. After spending some time with the horses I decided to head back to the kayak, make the paddle across Taylor’s Creek and go enjoy the warmth and comfort of home. On the hike back I noticed several of these handsome little birds and decided to make a few photos.

    Loved your beautiful photos! They have helped me identify the cute little “Butter Butt” at my feeders. Feeders are stocked with fruit and nut blend seeds. Blue birds enjoy this mixture too. Of course with the current snow accumulation everyone is enjoying the feeders. The little warbler is a frequent feeder for the last two winters. (Charlotte)
