      It seems recently I have noticed a number of birds with brightly colored rumps. I have learned the house finch male has a red rump, and if that is the part of an LBJ I see, I can ID it. I recently clinched the ID on a flicker because of its white rump. There is another bird around that has a yellow rump. I have ruled out a yellow-rumped warbler; it looks like it could be a young/female pine warbler, but nothing says they have a bright yellow rump. I would love to see a short course or article that can help ID birds by the color of their rump. A second short course/article on birds with eye-rings would be cool, too. Do these already exist?
