    wiki says "Three closely related North American bird forms—the eastern Myrtle Warbler, its western counterpart, Audubon's Warbler, and the Central American Goldman's Warbler—are periodically lumped as the Yellow-rumped Warbler (Dendroica coronata)." That makes this individual an Audubon's based on the western location (CA), and also the bright yellow throat is diagnostic according to Sibley, thanks to Gary - encouragement (see comment below)

      roddh et al. Thanks, I was shooting surfers at Morro Rock, and during a lull this pretty subject presented itself nearby, so I swung around, changed the auto-focus range to short to infinity, and took a sequence.

      I use the Cornell Ornithology Website for ID's. They have some good photos and ID tips. According to that site, it appears this bird is the "Audubon" form of the yellow-rumped warbler since it has a yellow throat. The "Myrtle" form has a pale white throat. I was able to shoot both forms at the Yolo Wildlife Area recently ... and will post soon. Meanwhile, here's the ID link:

      Great shot! -Gary

      encouragement Thanks Gary - I always appreciate a clarification on bird ID's!

      wiki says "Three closely related North American bird forms—the eastern Myrtle Warbler, its western counterpart, Audubon's Warbler, and the Central American Goldman's Warbler—are periodically lumped as the Yellow-rumped Warbler (Dendroica coronata)." That makes this individual an Audubon's based on the western location (CA), and also the bright yellow throat is diagnostic according to Sibley, thanks to Gary - encouragement (see comment below)

      Very nice shot. I hope that you don't mind, but I used this photo in a post about introducing children to birding.
