It's not easy being green...

Now HE'S a handsome bird and you can tell, he knows it!

Unless you're a Black-throated Green Warbler, of course.

Once again, being color blind doesn't help finding these little guys among the greenery. Luckily they are a very fidgety warbler and their constant movement helps find them. The hyper-activity doesn't help when one wants to take their portrait, but that's what makes shooting warblies so much fun.

First he's in front of you, next he's behind you, then all of a sudden, he's on top of you!
I think I hit the Doodles with my monopod when I held my camera over my head for this shot. Oops, sorry, again!
I think she's getting used to it now...

Oooh, psych-o-delic dude!
This is what the world looks like when you have vertigo and you move around too much! After chasing warblies, my head spins like that too!
Remember what I said about them jumping around from limb to limb?
Look at those long leggies getting ready to launch!
Hmmm, here's a normal photo. Hahahahaha. Sorry, I couldn't think of a funny caption, so I just laughed to myself.
"Oooh, nice lens Loopy! But, I see a dust spot near the bottom."
Yes, Black-throated Green Warblies can be very helpful, too.
And last butt not least, a little booty profile for ya!

I want to thank all the folks that follow my blog for following my blog! I'm still amazed at the different countries you are all from. Australia, Iceland, India, Oman, Great Britain and so many more. That's the great thing about birding and birders, no matter what language or beliefs we can all get along and have a good time.
I think it's time we took over the world, what do you think?


  1. It ain't easy living with a color blind photographer with vertigo, says the Doodles!

  2. ...he is a beautiful bird, and these are really pretty photos of him (and of course "psych-o-delic dude" made me laugh, and my husband, Rick too, who was reading over my shoulder!)

  3. Yeah lets here it for birders! Great post..

  4. Hi Dave,
    This is a beautiful bird and you got it at all possible angles!!!

  5. Hi Dave, I so jealous that you have all these awesome looking warblers on your doorstep! Great stuff.

  6. LOL, Dave, color-wise that first photo is absolutely awesome -- all the most beautiful shades of yellow and green in such a nice combination!

    I agree. We should take over the world.
