Yellow Hummingbirds?

For three consecutive years now I have seen a prothonotary warbler drinking from my hummingbird feeder. This year I was able to get a couple of photos. I have taken to the removal of one of the four bee guards in order that he may drink. Has anyone else heard of, or witnessed this behavior before?
