Erika and I noticed these Yellow-rumped Warblers on 24 February 2022 on the Billy Frank Jr Nationwide Wildlife Refuge. After we moved to Olympia, we didn’t anticipate to see each races of this hen—the white-throated Myrtle Warbler and the yellow-throated Audubon’s Warbler. Now we have at all times considered the Myrtle Warbler as an japanese hen, whereas Audubon’s are western. This assumption is mainly appropriate, however the Myrtle Warbler does breed in Alaska and northern British Columbia. Thus the 2 races do happen north of us right here in Washington and may be anticipated emigrate by the state.
