We have been seeing lots of Yellow-rumps all over the Meadowlands these days, from Disposal Road to Mill Creek Marsh, and we have to say it's bittersweet.
We can remember April, when they were coming through en route to points north, and they were so ubiquitous we almost wanted a Yellow-rump filter for the binocs. Two seasons later, we see them and realize we won't see them again till Spring — and decide that maybe there's more to them than meets the passing eye.
Dennis Cheeseman took this Yellow-rump shot last week at DeKorte. (Thanks, Dennis!)
