Wilson’s Warbler, Female


The word is out.

As a result, birds have started reading my blogs.

After my post showing a male Wilson’s Warbler I received a very polite tweet, asking me to show a photo of a female.

Notice that she looks similar to the male, except she has a muted black cap.

It’s very difficult to take a photo like this because these birds are small, busy, and quick. None of them stop to pose for a photo. And they spend most of their time inside trees because they’re safer in there.

I’m pleased that birds are participating in the conversation. This matters because it makes a blog a better blog.

That’s how things work, through cooperative partnerships. Someone reads a blog and then shares it with friends.

Much success,

Steve Kaye

Did You Know?

The most effective way to help birds is to buy land.

Here are three organizations that excel at doing this.

1) American Bird Conservancy

2) The Nature Conservancy

3) The Trust for Public Land

Please visit their web sites to learn about the work they do.

Here’s an excellent book: The American Bird Conservancy Guide to Bird Conservation

    I understand about birds not being the best models. I have a pretty tough time taking their pictures myself. You succeeded well on this one.
