Dead Yellow-rumped Warbler--age and sex?

Recommended Posts

Best guess is a young male, based on the handful of lower back feathers with blue edging and larger dark centers, the blue edges to the uppertail coverts, and the amount of white in the outer rectrices. For future reference, if you want to age and sex dead birds, make sure you spread the wings out and get shots of the upper side (and in a few species, the under side).
