Yellow Warbler
Dendroica petechia

This is another set up in which I found this lovely perch and per-visualized the bird landing exactly where he did. I used an old tripod with a hole in the handle. The perch was placed inside the hole. I once again carefully chose a nice BG. All I had to do was wait for the light to turn golden and bring in my subject. I took this image on my 50th birthday and I am very pleased with the outcome. If any of you would like to know more about attracting wild birds to your set ups I would be happy to share.
