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

    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.
