April’s Welcoming Warbler

April’s Welcoming Warbler

I took a trip to the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge on April 3, 2013, and the first sound I heard when getting set up for my shoot was the song of the Common Yellowthroat.  These little colorful beauties always ring in April at the refuge with their unmistakable song.  I was fortunate to capture this male singing between markers #12 and 13, but I could hear them almost everywhere on the refuge.  The bird migrates from the south to North America to just south of the Tundra.  Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1000, f6.3, ISO 1600, Canon 400mm f5.6L lens.
