Dripping Butter

I had the opportunity to do some late afternoon birding at Lake Erie Metropark. The trails were totally alive with Robins, Grackles, and Yellow-rumped Warblers. One "Yellowrump" was cooperative enough to sit still so I could snap a photo. At one point, I figured I was surrounded by a few dozen. They truly seemed to be everywhere.

You have to be wondering about my entry title. Yellow-rumped Warblers have a "yellow" spot on the "rump." You can do the "math", right? "Yellow = butter" while "rump = butt". Get it? Yellowrump? Butterbutt?

Perhaps in the coming days I can snag a photo of one's bum....
