Yellow-Rumped Warbler 4" x 4" acrylic
Thoughout most of the year this bird is a more subdued brownish streaked bird with hints of yellow on it's rump and sides. However, in the spring, the males are a showy splash of white, charcoal and yellow. They are quite numerous at times and will forage almost anywhere quickly changing their diet from insects to berries, then back to insects again. This particular bird was seen in a pine shrub outside my studio window.
