The picture of this Pine Warbler was taken at Prospect Park in Brooklyn on the first Sunday of the month birdwalk given by the Brooklyn Birding Club.I find I have much success going in a birding group where the birds are being pointed out. At least until I become more familiar with each bird’s behavior.
Getting pictures of Warblers is a fun challenge because they rarely are still for more than a moment. The first sight is that of a tiny object flitting around as a silhouette in a tree. I try to watch for any movement patterns so that i can perhaps get my lens a few flits ahead in order to get the shot.
It is definitely easier to capture pictures now that there are no leaves on the trees. This is not going to last very long though.
