Chestnut-sided Warbler (Setophaga pensylvanica)
Warblers have to be among the most frustrating birds to photograph: they are tiny, move almost constantly, and spend most of their time in amongst dense foliage and branches. So mostly I photograph them to take the photos home to identify them.
Blackburnian Warbler (Setophaga fusca)
Now that it's mid May, warblers are heading to their breeding grounds. A few stop for refueling in one of my favourite woods. Quite a few love Canada because we have tons of juicy bugs for them to eat.
Black-throated Blue Warbler (Setophaga caerulescens)
Don't let the name of this warbler fool you. This is a female and she looks so different from the BLUE male that for a while birders believed the male and female were different species.
One of my birding goals is to get better photos of these birds, which will take patience and a LOT of luck!
