Help Please-Warbler?

Recommended Posts

I have photographed this lovely bird in my backyard before. It seems to fit the profile of a Yellow-throated Warbler except for its white throat. 
What am I? Thank you and keep staying safe everyone.

That’s a Myrtle Yellow-rumped Warbler. The yellow patches on the sides are good clues.

Yellow-rumped Warblers have yellow on their rumps, which is on the top of the body, near the tail. The rump can't be seen on any of these photos.

Always remember to put location. I assumed it was in Charleston but a reiteration would be helpful.

Yes in the Charleston area, I should have included that. I can see the YRW now. Thank you akandula! I didn’t get a view or photo showing the yellow spot on the backside. Is Myrtle YRW a specific type of this bird?

Yes, there are many subspecies of Yellow-rumped Warblers. The one in Eastern and Northern North America is the Myrtle subspecies.
