Setophaga coronata (Crowned Moth-eater) There are two varieties of the Yellow-rumped Warbler - Audubon's Warbler found in western states, and the Myrtle Warbler typically seen in eastern states. Pictured is a male Audubon's Warbler.
This small Sparrow is common over much of the continent. Originally a bird of open pine woods and edges, it has adapted well to altered landscapes, nesting in gardens and parks in many areas, and its tame behavior makes it well-known and popular.
