I love getting shots of all the birds around where I work, but I freely admit I'm no birder and have a hard time identifying a lot of them (although I'm getting better). I took these yesterday and just loved the contrast of the colors. If I could post the larger ones, you'd see a lot more of the flowering currant and they really made a great environment.

Anyway - This appeared to me to be a Yellow Warbler, but the birders I know think it may be an Orange Crowned Warbler. I think they're right although I didn't get a good shot of the crown. Note the white rump though.

I can't help on the ID, but it's a pretty bird and these are very nice shots. I like the second especially.

shame the head isn't just a bit lower in that first shot as it's a nice composition.

Definitely an Orange-crowned Warbler. The orange crown is rarely seen in the field. Very nice images, especially with the foliage.

I have more with the head down. I liked this because it wasn't the usual, but I would have been upset if this was the only one I got.

Excellent then! I'm glad to have seen it.

I've got a couple more intersting poses if anybody want to see more?

Thanks for the comments.
