Length: 6 in. (14 cm )
One of the most widespread and common warblers in North America, this species nests in mature coniferous forests or mixed broadleaf and coniferous forests. They feed on insects gleaned from vegetation or hawked from the air usually high in the trees. The cup-shaped nest is made of twigs and shredded bark and placed high on a horizontal branch. During the winter, the Yellow-rumped Warbler moves to more open forested habitats and suburbs and often moves in mixed species flocks. In the winter they often eat fruits. Formerly the eastern white-thorated) population was considered a separate species, the Myrtle Warbler, from the western yellow-throated) Audubon\s Warbler.'

The four-digit banding code is YRWA.
