Sometimes you get lucky, Black-throated Green Warbler

This is how you usually see Black-throated Green Warblers. They come just when the leaves are filling out and being a dendroica (from the Greek dendron, “a tree” and oicos, “inhabit”) they like to torment bird photographers and by darting about up in the canopy.

Then if you’re lucky, your camera can figure out exactly what you want to focus on. I wasn’t lucky...not quite sharp.

Doh!, the camera found, but I’m not interested in the under tail coverts.

He shoots, HE SCORES!

...yeah! He shoots, he scores is right! I saw a lot of these fellows at Magee Marsh (near Toledo, Ohio at Lake Erie) this week. They are so pretty. (The trees at Magee are filled with warblers as they rest up for the rest of their journey north!)
