[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From Hoover Nature Preserve, Ohio. Old photo never show it.
A brilliant yellow-orange bird of southeastern wooded swamps, the Prothonotary Warbler is a striking sight.
•The Prothonotary Warbler is one of only two warbler species that nest in cavities. (Lucy's Warbler is the other.)
•Go here to take a look at what goes on inside a Prothonotary Warbler nest, through the help of a Nest Box Cam provided by The Birdhouse Network at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
•The name "Prothonotary" refers to clerks in the Roman Catholic church, whose robes were bright yellow.

Hi Peter,

An excellent photo of the Warbler!! The focus is bang on!! The color is so real & the BG super smooth... Very nice!!!


For not being zoomed all the way in, this is well focused. It's a cute yellow bird with a great side profile. I like the framing. Nice to see. TFS Trevor

Bonsoir Peter,
Très belle publication valorisant bien le sujet dans une belle lumière et sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Peter
very lovely and adorable bird. The colors are pleasant and the contrast with the soft background is so pleasant.
Well composed shot.
