[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have been making the two and a half hour trip up to Magee Marsh every weekend since the first of May in hopes of getting some migrating Warbler photos. I must admit I was a little disappointed in this years final results due to bad weather conditions, and not so good timing on my part.
I hit a period of extremely high winds and rain for three days in a row. We even had a tornado touch down in the Northwestern part of the region. The first few days it was so windy that I couldn't have gotten a shot even with the best made stabilazation lens in the world. I did manage to get some decent images on some of the calmer days which I'll begin to post this evening.
The Yellow-rumped Warbler spends it's summers in the conifer forest of Canada. When insects get scarce it tends to feed on berries and will even visit feeders for a snack.
Most of the early arrivals to the marsh were either Yellow-rumped or Palm Warblers. The yellow-rumped seemed to like to stay up high in the trees, but occasionally they would make their way down to eye level giving me good opportunities for some shots.

Hello Ron.
Beautiful presentation. Nice profile view of your bird with excellent detail and exposure. Nice natural colors. Good background.

Wonderfully detailed and processed capture Ron... excellent composition, lighting, and color. Someday... I hope to get a camera capable of getting such magnificent bird photos and then pray for the skill to capture them as fantastically as many of you have done. :)

Hello Ron,
Tack sharp and beautifully coloured image Ron. The composition and point of view are equally superb, thanks for sharing Ron.

Good morning Ron,

A superb capture of a warbler in a fine pose. Perfectly sharp with a nice, soft background. Nice crop.
TFS and have a nice day!
