I am new to figuring out who is in my backyard, and with a new feeder I have so many visitors.  They are so much fun to watch!  SF Bay area.  This picture from a couple weeks ago.  Thanks!

Yellow-rumped Warbler. Nice shot, too.

This is a Yellow-rumped Warbler - check out the yellow dot on the head and the yellow head. I'm jealous of you folks who get Warblers on their feeders!

Welcome to Whatbird.

Thank you!  So glad I found this site -  I have been able to figure out who most of my visitors are.  And I am thankful for my digital camera with a zoom lens so I can sit at my computer and compare pictures... the subtle differences I just can't see "on the fly" :-)

Welcome!

And excellent photo!  They're hard to get to sit still!
