The Antics of Yellow-rumps

A chilly, bright, season-appropriate morning lured me slowly up the hill. Kinglets two, sparrow one, and yet more Yellow-rumped Warblers. They chipped and flitted and chased and veered, the yellow-rumps did. They were fun to watch awhile.

A road race that ended at Beech Nut happened this gray early morning, and I didn’t manage to list many birds early, so Jack and I returned this sunny afternoon to list a few more. As usual this fall, the numbers were mostly Yellow-rumped Warblers. ’Rumps were everywhere.
