Missed by THAT much...again!

A Black-throated Green Warbler taking a nose dive to avoid me...as usual.
I'm sorry about this...I'm having too much fun going through my old Magee Marsh photos and dreaming about spring! Pretty soon, the BIG Day and the BIGGEST Week will be here!
My goal this year will be to shoot birds while they are sitting still...from the front. Oh yeah, and in focus too! Maybe.
In the meantime...

Look closely! Can you figure it out?
Yep, American Redstart leaving the scene...

This is one of the birds that makes me crazy!
I just can't get a good shot of a Cape May Warbler.
Another goal for May Madness at Magee!

The fun of shooting warbly things is that they are so unpredictable.
If they spot a bug, they're off and you're never sure what direction they will take!

Yeah...we all know what this is. Don't we?
Ah...help...I don't know either...

An Orange-crowned Warbler doing the flappy thing.

Warbling Vireos crack themselves up when they wreck your stick portraits!
I can still hear him laughing "Zooooom hahahahaha!"...moron.

This is a fledgling Yellow-billed Cuckoo. He wasn't going anywhere, and he was going there fast!
