Yellow rumped warbler (drawing)

One of my best friends (i.e. my sister in thesis) does not like birds.  (I know, it is a shock.)   But I wanted to draw her a bird as a Christmas gift anyway.  “Do you have any requests?” I asked.

“Something rumped,” she replied immediately, “Something angry looking.”

“Uhh…okay,” I said.

Well, a local “rumped” species is the Yellow rumped warbler.  This adult female does look pretty annoyed.

  1. By coincidence, I’ve just written a caption for this species for a (‘my’) bird book, ending “At one time this bird was considered to be a Myrtle Warbler, but had the misfortune to be reclassified with a less dignified name.” The recent-ish warbler species name change from the poetic ‘Dendroica’ to the mundane ‘Setophaga’ seems a poor move too!
