    Default Warbler Question

    Today at work I saw a bird outside of my window that might just have been a female yellow rumped warbler, but I'm wondering if it could have been anything else.

    In terms of size, it was about the size of a yellow-rumped warbler, or a little smaller. It's coloring was mostly a light brown, but the distinctive feature were two separate flashes of yellow, one on each side near the tail.

    I live in Minneapolis, MN. Any possibilities or confirmations would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Tom, thanks for posting. I wonder if your bird could be a female American Redstart which are grayish/olive brown with large yellow flashes on the tail:
