Yellow-Rumped Warbler (Three Photographs)

Yellow Rumped Warbler-2To view more of my photography please click on

This bird, which I believe is a yellow-rumped warbler, seemed interested in me but decided nonetheless to stay around. Little birds, even with long lenses are tough subjects. It was an overcast day with only a slight hint of blue in the sky, but the lighting worked out for me. Getting most of it right in camera meant minimal processing, mostly focused on the crop, exposure and sharpening. I am hoping to shoot more small birds this year. My copyright tells you I am still processing photographs from last year, not being much of a winter person I take advantage of the warmer weather.

  3. Can’t wait for these little guys and their kin to return and fill up our forests with their songs.

    • Nor can I. It’s just a bit too wet and cold right now. Good weather for cardinals and woodpeckers.

      • I saw my first eastern phoebe today. More species are returning every day – hurrah. I’m trying to ignore the nor’easter forecast for Sun. night with its 6-12″ of heavy wet snow. 😦 I tell myself it will melt quickly!
