Black-and-white Warbler

I received an email from a friend (she says...), Cheryl Harner of the Greater Mohican Audubon yesterday. She wanted to see more birds from behind, sick girl.

Somehow, I've become known for getting the wrong end of a bird more often than shooting the 'proper' portrait of our little friends. I try to wait for a nice profile, butt, it just doesn't seem to work out that way. For awhile, I was getting frustrated being the butt of fellow birder's jokes. Butt now it's become my goal when out birding. I'm sure I can use the term 'butt' a few more times, butt I'll quit.

Anyway...we have about a foot of snow so far today...and it hasn't stopped coming down. I thought this would be a nice time to look at Spring Warblers, so here ya go. Think warm!
