[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was my first sighting of a Golden Winged Warbler in all the years I have been going up to Magee Marsh.
I was thrilled when it finally came close enough for me to get a descent shot of it.

This photo was taken very early in the morning before the sun had even peaked over the horizon. The BG. was made up of very thick vegetation, thus giving it a dark appearance.

The male has a yellowish crown, yellow wingbars or wing patch and a dark Chickadee-like patch on it's cheek.
The female sports a yellowish crown intermingled with tinges of green, yellow wingbars, charcoal to gray cheek and throat area.

Hi Ron,i like a lot the pics taken whit a dark background to concentrate the attention on the bird,this is really fantastic,what a details,colors and exposure and what a dunny acrobatic pose too,very well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hi Ron. Very nice shot of a Golden Winged Warbler. Your flash worked immensely well in the absence of light. Good colours and details and in perfect focus. The golden crown is nicely aglow. A great trophy shot! Do you find the birds more dosile this early in the morning Ron? ...or do they stay in one spot longer?

Hello Ron,
Excellent sharp detailed photo of this Golden-winged Warbler in very good sharpness, details and beautiful contrasting colours. The flash did its work very well. Taken from an original POV.

Hello Ron.
Superb capture.
nice colour and detail you capture of this beautful Golden Winged Warbler.
best regards,

Bonjour Ron,
Une attitude pour le moins originale saisie à l'instant décisif grâce à une excellente coordination de la vitesse et de la profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Wonderful capture of a beautiful species.


Beautiful bird and impressive photo Ron! Interesting pose, very good composition, wonderful colours and very good sharpness.

Hello Ron,
Fantastic colors, details and superb focus. Amazing clarity....The contrast against the dark background is superb. Wonderful feathers.....I was very busy in the last weeks and I have no time for TN.
Sorry I have no more green smiles left.....

Hello Ron

Congratulations for this first time,
excellent photo of this species of Warbler,
with fine POV to show its golden colored
wings and head, TFS


Hi Ron, Stun sharpness and amazing clarity with beautiful colours. POV is interesting that the bird seems hanging up side down on the branch. The black BG is a great idea to stand out the subject.
