Photos by Marcel Gahbauer, McGill Bird Observatory (QC), October 2010, A particuarly boldly marked HY male Myrtle Warbler, with a large patch of yellow and While most of its relatives migrate to the tropics in fall, the Yellow-rump, able to live on berries, commonly remains as far north as New England and Seattle; it is the main winter warbler in North America. Male Myrtle Warblers are readily recognized by having a black mask, and distinct yellow patches on the side of the breast contrasting with adjacent black feathers. Often flies out to catch flying insects. Experienced birders recognize myrtle warblers with the naked eye by their flycatcher-like habit of making short flights from their perch in search of bugs. SY males are generally quite similar in overall appearance to ASY males, also featuring distinct yellow and black patches on the breast. Juvenile Myrtle Warblers have a relatively uniform dull gray-brown wing. Upperparts brownish with some blue-gray; auricular brownish-gray; relatively dark but dull wings with gray edging to the primary coverts; rectrices broad, rounded; dark uppertail coverts with a mix of blue-gray and brown edging. This similarity poses a special problem with the Yellow-rumped Warbler because the group has been “split” into two distinct species, Audubon’s and Myrtle Warbler.

Audubon's Warblers are similar in appearance, the most noticeable Zoom in to see how this species’s current range will shift, expand, and contract under increased global temperatures.

The wings of AHY females are browner and duller than those of AHY males. See under Taxonomy for the status of the Myrtle. In most cases this provides the best way to separate SY and ASY females, but in cases where all greater coverts have been replaced during the prealternate molt, the appearance of the SY wing may look more similar to the ASY pattern, and extra caution is required. The first few days I was out on the island, it was one of only a handful of warblers I even saw (though by trip’s end I’d tallied 19 warblers species). In winter, common in many lowland habitats, especially coastal bayberry thickets in East and streamside woods in West.

Yellow-rumped Warbler was the result of the lumping of forms formerly known as "Myrtle Warbler" and "Audubon's Warbler" in 1973 (according to Kaufmann, they were lumped because the two species were known to interbreed in a zone in southwestern Alberta, Canada).
