Myrtle or Yellow-rumped Warbler

Myrtle or Yellow-rumped Warbler. High Shincliffe, Durham

A very ambitious shot of this rare North American Wood Warbler. Feeding on a Coconut in the middle of a dense shrub from whence it refused to move. Perhaps because of the wind, rain and freezing temperatures!
However, surprisingly , alot of the ID features can , with imagination, just be seen---Dark Cheek, Eye ring,  Pale Throat, Wing Bars , a hint of Yellow on its side and  Streaked breast.
You will have to believe me that it did have a very bright rump!



What it would have looked like if it decided to stop hiding in the centre of the dense bush
