I found a alternate adult / female ''Audubon's'' Yellow-rumped Warbler along the Thames River near Beachville today. The bird was in a flock of 10 Yellow-rumps, all catching flies along the muddy banks of the river.

Besides the yellow throat patch, the bird can be detected by call, which differs from the 'Myrtle'' Yellow-rumps in being somewhat sweeter and higher pitched.

From Beachville Road, take Domtar Line north over the river, then turn immediately right to the gate. Walk along the gravel roadway about 200 m. The birds were along this stretch, low down along the riverbank and in the vegetation.
