YELLOW RUMPED WARBLER VISITS MY BIRDBATH TODAY

Wednesday November 4, 2015 / St. Louis, MO

Just yesterday I was  whining to my neighbor  that I hadn’t seen many birds in my backyard recently.  Then, this morning,  I was blessed with this new visitor !  At first glance my thought was this poor bird had been spattered with yellow paint!  But recalling   Mother Nature’s  unique sense of humor,  my research,  paired with my best guess, tells me this is a Myrtle Yellowed Rump Warbler.  Evidently  these birds rarely come to feeders, so the need for a dip in  my bird bath was the attraction.

Hope you enjoy her bathing photos and just a reminder you can double click on the photo to enlarge it …….
