(previously called Audubon's Warbler)
Yellow-rumped warbler is a winter visitor to Kaweah Oaks Preserve, visiting from December through March. It is mostly a loner and not seen with a flock. The male, of course, is much brighter in color than the female, but both are very pretty birds. They are about the same size as a House Finch, but slightly smaller than a House Sparrow. Their chirp is sharp and short, not real melodic. This warbler eats insects and seeds. They often visit bird feeders during the winter months.
