Prothonotary Warbler

When these birds pass through here during migration every photographer is looking to catch a few shots. I’m not all the excited about small birds, but everyone else is… it must be contagious.

Like all Warblers they are shy and fast. At least 10 were in the spot I captured these. They left in a hurry but came back.

There is a lot of luck to these shots also. In fact at the time of these images I noticed a woman walking near with a large lens. I motioned to her, she looked, shot, and captured one of the best Prothonotary photos I’ve ever seen.

She thanked me, walked a few steps, and then asked me ‘what is this anyway’?

Her first time in a swamp…see luck is involved.

    1. Depending on the light they look bright yellow to vivid orange. Always moving and patience is not my friend. I was lucky because males were chasing females and came back to the same spot many times. I can hide for a long time waiting on an Eagle, small things like this… I want to burst 😂😂
