Taken in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula

Canon 7D Mark2 + 600mm IS lens
1/500 sec, f/7.1
Mode: Av
Metering: Multi-segment
Exp comp: -2/3
ISO: 800

I have heard this bird from a public road along a private ranch for 3 years, but this year there were 2 more singing, so I contacted the ranch owner to explore the property.  He was happy to oblige.  I found only those 3 Connecticut Warblers. I am glad the owner has no interest in logging this area.  5 years ago I had another area with a group of 4 Connecticut warblers on state land that was logged and all the birds left.

Nice capture-a pretty pose on the lichen-covered log. They are rare to non-existent here. Glad you found them and perhaps will see them again.

Great story and image, Paul. The composition, perch and background all come together to create a wonderful image of this pretty warbler.
