The Western race of the Yellow-rumped Warbler used to be refered to as Audubon's Warbler, the Eastern race was known as the Myrtle Warbler, but the Myrtle race is also found along the coast of Oregon and California. Now scientists lump them both together as Yellow-rumped Warblers. The white chin on the Myrtle is a major clue in seperating it from the Aububon's which has a yellow chin.
