STOPS ALONG THE WAY

PALM WARBLER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Palm Warbler -1

Palm Warblers are a new species for me. A friend in the reserve told us that there were warblers in a grove of pine trees and pointed us in their direction. The birds kept flying through and around the tree boughs catching insects as they flew past. I kept panning the trees hoping to catch sight of one. I think warblers are among the most challenging of birds to photograph given their quick movements. Their striking colours set them off against the green of the pines and with a bit of luck and patience I was rewarded with these photographs.

  12. You certainly got him to hold still long enough to get a clear photo. Very nicely done, and such a beautiful bird.
