photographing and learning about wildlife
Setophaga pensylvanica (male)
We have many of these little guys up at the cabin. I'm sorry about the low quality of the shot -- I"m mostly posting it because it is the first species of bird that I identified myself -- one of the only reasons I enjoy photographing birds. I have picked up a bit of new glass this winter, and I'm hoping to get more shots of these colourful little birds this summer.
They seem to be thriving on the North side of our small lake where there are a few mature trees and a lot of small 'brush' like witch-hazel and immature spruce and maple etc.
