I just recently had my first experience with the Yellow-rumped Warbler & I wanted to share....

I noticed a male at my window feeders & it was very friendly & inquisitive. I decided to hold my hand out the window with seeds to see what it would do.

It immediately came to my hand, I got pictures & a video on my cellphone camera.
