Yellow-rumped Warbler

Lovingly known as “butter butts”, these are slightly larger than most warblers. Their black and white feathers are brightened up with yellow patches on their sides and rump. You may see some looking different from each other, as two subspecies, Myrtle and Audubon’s, are found in BC.

Seasons active

Mostly spring and fall with the other warblers, but sporadically throughout the rest of the year

How/where to find

Catch them singing and jumping around in the trees, both in wooded and marshy habitats.

You can find the Yellow-rumped Warbler throughout every Region and Outpost on The BC Bird Trail!
