Setophaga coronata
(Linnaeus, 1766)

The yellow-rumped warbler (Setophaga coronata) is a North American bird species.They are found in the Northeastern U.S., they occur all the way down to sea level wherever conifers are present. During winter, yellow-rumped warblers find open areas with fruiting shrubs or scattered trees, such as parks, streamside woodlands, open pine and pine-oak forest, dunes (where bayberries are common), and residential areas. On their tropical wintering grounds they live in mangroves, thorn scrub, pine-oak-fir forests

In summers, males of both forms have streaked backs of black on slate blue, white wing patches, a streaked breast, and conspicuous yellow patches on the crown, flank, and rump (the latter giving rise to the species’s nickname”butterbutt” among birdwatchers).

The Yellow-rumped Warbler is # 214 on my list of “Lifers”
