This Yellow-rumped Warbler, also known as “Butter Butt” paused as he was looking for snacks along the tree line of the rice field dike.
The warblers tend to be fast and elusive, usually working the inner branches as they move along a tree line.
It’s always a treat when they turn towards the camera, even though this is not the Butter Butt’s most colorful side.
The sky was gloriously blue and this Yellow-rumped Warbler flitted in and out of the trees along the rice field dike.
Anyone who follows birds, especially the small ones, knows the advantage of fall and leafless trees.
The other edge of the dike is lined with various evergreen trees making it easy for these little fellows to disappear in a flash.
