Yellow Rumped Season At End?

It very much looks like a bit more of winter has reached its end here in the Piedmont.  And that is because a winter-only visitor seems to have folded the tents and moved on.  That would be the Yellow Rumped Warblers.  They joined us after the fall wax myrtle pickings ended.  And they are an aggressive presence especially at suet in January and February.  Now things are quieter.  But they will be replaced at this station by catbirds, at least, so the suet will move.  Good bye friends, and enjoy your summer, wherever you went!
