Yellow-rumped Warbler

The yellow-rumped warbler (Setophaga coronata) is a regular North American bird species of the family Parulidae. Its extensive distribution range connects both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of the U.S. as well as Canada and Central America, with the population concentrating in the continent’s northern parts during the breeding season and migrating southwards to southern North and Central America in winter.

The species generally prefers coniferous forests or mixed coniferous-deciduous forests as its breeding habitat, while during the winter it can be found inhabiting more open areas such as shrublands that offer food resources.

The diet of the yellow-rumped warbler is based primarily on insects, though the species does eat fruits such as juniper berries as well, especially in winter.
