Continuing theme of Spring adult male warblers.  This is a Blackburnian Warbler.  I consider it, at first glance, the most striking of the Northeast US warblers and give the males the nickname of "pumpkins" as their throats appear pumpkin orange against the evergreens where they normally breed high in the canopy.

I don't believe that you could have taken a better photo of a Blackburnian warbler than this image, Warren!
The pattern on the head is so well portrayed . The branches add very much to the overall appeal of the photograph.

the exposure is tack on and the added tree with all that mossy on the branches makes this warbler pop in this frame, I like the habitat in which he was taken, very well done.

Fabulous image Warren. The lichens add a nice touch, and I don't think I've seen better images of these very beautiful warblers.
Make your life spectacular!

I agree with your assessment of the "striking" quality of the Blackburnian warbler, Warren! Without question, those yellow and pumpkin orange tones are simply gorgeous! The composition of your image is excellent, as is the pose with the bird gazing across and through the frame. Great image!

+1- this really shows off the exceptional beauty of the elusive Blackburnian, usually found very high up in the canopy around here.

Beautiful subject that contrasts well with the background with its bright colors.
