Default Yellow-Throat and Yellow Warbler

A couple of pics from last week. Taken with the Canon 50D and 500mm + 1.4x. Thank you for looking.

Thanks Cheryl, Both of these birds are pretty common and they do nest in this area. The yellow-throat is usually found near water (streams/swamps).

Beautiful shots Rick... I love warblers and hunt them daily... but no Yellow Warblers in my immediate area.

Thanks and I take my hat off to you and anyone who spends a lot of time shooting warblers. They are beautiful and I love them but they drive me totally insane. They are so small, fast and they are hardly ever in the clear.

Fabulous shots Rick....we have a few warblers here from time to time. They are tough to shoot! That 500mm with the 1.4x is a great combo. Wish I had one!
