Yellow-rumped warblers are also known as "butterbutts" and you can guess why! Unlike other warblers, butterbutts travel northward instead of South for the winter migration season, paying Los Angeles a visit from September to February. There's two distinct subspecies of this warbler - Audubon's and Myrtle's.
Butterbutts are some of our most popular migrants. They're omnivores, feeding on seeds and insects close to the ground. You can spot a Yellow-rumped Warbler from its flight pattern - it flaps flaps flaps and then swoops! Come visit butterbutts and other warblers migrating around Debs during fall migration and see if you can spot some differences between them!
