Lovely Greenie. If I were to frame it I think I'd lighten the shot up a touch, but that's just me.

Yellow Warblers. I both love 'em and hate 'em. We don't have anything like them in the UK so I think they're wonderful. But when I'm in Canada it quickly becomes different. You see a flash of yellow in the trees. You have to check it out, hoping it's something interesting, but 90% of the time it turns out to be a Yellow! Argh! But for all that, they're still wonderful birds. :)

 :p. When I was in the Galápagos, they were everywhere ! After a while, they became known as AFW’s (Another F****n Warbler)

Aye, Jack, thank you for the recommendation. I'm always wondering if my shots look the same on POTN as on my computer at home. Seems I may have to lighten up shots, as I sort of notice the trend too when I look at my photos on my work monitor.

I'm always hoping for a rare warbler, like a Golden Winged or Cerulean would be awesome! My goal this fall is to see if I can finally nab a clear shot of a Canada variety.

I never see Yellows around here, this is my first, actually! The only other time I've seen one was in the US Virgin Islands last year. The most common Warblers I get here are Yellow Rumped in the winter, and so far in the summer months I'm seeing Prothonotary more than anything.

You Canucks get the summer breeding plumage Warblers, whereas we mostly get them for a short while during their migration in April/September.

Very nice, sharp as a tack, close-up shot, Graham.

Thank you Sidknee. There's one more nuthatch that I know of. A Red-breasted Nuthatch. Their range is north of here and I've only seen one.
