BAY-BREASTED WARBLER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

49 Comments

Bay-breasted W. -1

The bay-breasted warbler is the third warbler variety I have featured on my blog. Like the palm and yellow-rumped warblers, the bay-breasted is a challenge to shoot as it flies in and out of the pine trees, your neck is on a perpetual pivot to get one in your camera sight. This handsome bird is in full breeding colours but I think he moved further afield to find a mate as we only saw this species for a couple of days in the reserve.

  2. Lovely photographs of a challenging subject! I particularly like your second photo – admittedly you see less of the bird but I feel it shows more of it’s character.

  16. Wow! I’ve never one of these before.
    What camera/lens combination do you use to shoot birds? Your pictures are always very crisp and vibrant.

  17. Nice shots. As you say warblers are a tough bird to photograph. We only get a few species out here in Colorado so it is a treat to see what you have. Cheers.
