Yellow Rumped Warbler (Myrtle Warbler)

Point Pelee, May 8, 2011

I don't have a lot of photographed "first" birds left.  Not only is the first Yellow Rumped Warbler I have ever seen, it is the very first warbler I have ever seen!  I had heard of them but didn't understand the fascination in them until looked through a field guide recently...then I saw the incredible variety and was excited to go to Point Pelee and try my luck.  I saw this guy flying out of the corner of my eye when I was taking pictures of the Ruby Crowned Kinglet and was thrilled to discover that I got at least a somewhat decent photo of him, given the circumstances.  This makes bird specie number 27!
