Butter Butt

Posted on Dec 5, 2015

The Yellow-rumped Warbler, or “Butter Butt” as we can see here, is one of the few warblers you can see here in December. While the leaves have left the trees the Yellow-rumps may still be around in warm areas such as coastlines, wooded wetlands and ponds, heated urban areas or places like sewage treatment plants. They are one of the only bits of yellow you can find in the winter season, and while hanging out here in our neck of the woods through the cold temperatures and snow is certainly difficult, at least these birds avoid the peril of a prolonged migration.
