A yellow-rumped warbler

A yellow-rumped warbler with all its field marks.

Full day of rain so one from the archives.
Keeping with a wet day I'm posting a wet bird.
Rondeau Provincial Park, Oct 12, 2022.
Setophaga coronata.
The Yellow-rumped Warbler is the only warbler able to digest the waxes found in bayberries and wax myrtles. Its ability to use these fruits allows it to winter farther north than other warblers, sometimes as far north as Newfoundland.
