One of the favorite shots from this spring as I like the surroundings. Uprooted huge tree is the perch.

No wonder its a favourite, Karl! The little warbler just glows like a golden light in those dark surroundings! Beautifully done.

nicely presented to the viewers to look at image and the yellow against a dark bg works well here, it's a beauty.

Berst one yet! Wonderful contrast with the stump, and a perky looking bird. So lucky to be seeing this beauty, and we get to see it too!

Great use of the environment in this image of the Prothonotary Warbler. The fallen old growth tree in a wet area perfectly suits its habitat.
