A winter wren with a yellow rump in Austin Texas? (1 Viewer)

Hello,

A few days ago I saw a wren like bird with a yellow rump in my back yard. It was near my peanut feeder.

I live in Austin, Texas. The bird had a pale grey front with streaks of brown. The yellow patch on the rump was just above the tail, and about the size of a dime. It was a bird similar to a ruby crowned kinglet except there was no ruby crown nor any other colored streaks on the head or wings. Very winterish.

Any idea what it was? Thanks.

At your link I went down to Movements and saw a female juvenile yellow rumped warbler. It could be the one but I did not see a picture of it with the small yellow rump that I definitely saw on mine. Still, it looks like a good I.D. Thanks!

Sure sounds like a Yellow-rumped Warbler. They can be bullies around the feeders.
