Thank you to Kerry for stopping to pick up this Yellow Rumped Warbler from a roadside ditch in Sutter Creek. He is unable to fly and starving, but is now able to perch. These birds eat insects in Summer, but switch to fruits and berries in the Fall and have a unique digestive system that allow them to digest the waxy berries of the Wax Myrtle and bayberry which means they are able to forage further North than other Warblers.
