They call me mellow yellow (quite rightly)

Another day, another warbler

Another day, another warbler

A small flock of these Yellow-rumped warblers (Setophaga coronata) were zipping in and out of trees, dining on what others might find unpalatable: poison ivy berries.

Meanwhile, this rather serene-looking female found a quieter spot nearby to take a brief break from the action.

Update: About a week after the first group was spotted, more warblers were feeding primarly on juniper berries.

As before, some flew into a nearby tree for a rest, or perhaps to sample the larger red fruits there. Here the eponymous rump (good name for a pub) is visible.
