Yellow-rumped Warbler    Setophaga coronata

The Yellow-rumped Warbler is one of the most common warblers in North America.  During the summer months, they breed in Alaska and across southern Canada.  They spend their winter months in the southeastern part of the United States, Mexico, and the western Caribbean.

In Florida, they are quite abundant during the winter months.  They start showing up in October and depart in May.  Unfortunately, we usually see them in their drab non-breeding plumage, which is a dull brown on the back.
