Wet Woods Warblers by John Burns

I find I can remember birds better if I have taken a picture of them.  Warblers are hard to get pictures of in Toronto as they are here for such a short period of time.  My ability to identify warblers is not great, so, I decided to invest several hours time on the long May weekend in the Wet Woods in Tommy Thompson Park to see if I could get a few photos. There are several challenges to get a photo.  One is they don’t like to pose but flit about.  Second, they tend to be high up in the trees and third the leaves are on the trees and they block out the birds.  However despite the challenges I did manage to get some shots.  Identifying some of them was a challenge, especially the Tennessee warbler.  I also included a couple of other notable birds that I managed to get shots of in the rest of the park.

The birds were:

Magnolia Warbler

    I loved your photos and know how hard it is to get great shots like these. We see what wonderful little perfect miracles these birds are when captured on film and not flitting about hidden by the leaves.
