Warblers Of The Vermilon River. A Post To WBW.

Chestnut-sided Warbler
When I got the camera and started taking photos I thought there was a lot to learn about photography. I thought the identification of wildlife was going to be easy. After all, a fox is a fox. But birds, now that's another story! And then there's wildflowers, insects, trees and the list probably goes on, and on. Then came the added pressure of the blog. Suddenly search engines started to direct readers here to see photos of wildlife or flora and fauna. So identifications have to be correct. Boom and I are a little long in the tooth for all this pressure. So thanks to all the people who help. Now I even go back and correct identifications. And I collect up sightings and re-post to show my collections. This one is about Warblers and includes a brand new one at the end. The folks from NWO Birds identified the photo that I posted last week as a Canada Warbler as a Palm Warbler, another first. Also a warbler post is important because Warblers may have a non-breeding or fall plumage and appear right along with the same bird in its breeding plumage.

  2. Beautiful images Gary... The Ovenbird has to be my favourite as they have been seen over here blown over by hurricanes. I haven't seen one but maybe one day....

  10. Hi there - there are times when I'm glad we don’t have as many warblers as you do! ID nightmare by the looks of it!

  11. Gary, you are quite the master at small bird photography. Wonderful selection of warblers. I never suspected there were so many. Great bird shots altogether.

  13. Phenomenal collection of photographs Gary! Maybe there's hope for me yet to see some warblers. Yours is a wonderful blog, I learn and see so much through your lens and research. It's fascination for me personally because your only a few hundred miles North of me and the differences in what we are seeing are sometimes quite dramatic. That you've been at this blogging business for over a year now helps me to understand the ebb and flow of the seasons of Ontario's North woods. It's a great work you do Gary and well appreciated!

  16. I can not even imagine, how did you manage photographing all those little ones so beautifully! It seems to me like they have been waiting for you and posing nicely :) It is not probably true but the photos are really good.

  18. Hello Gary,
    What a lovely series of photos! Most of the birds are the first time to see for me. The tiny creatures seem to celebrate this beautiful season by singing. And I feel as if I could listen to their carping. Thanks a lot for sharing your beautiful autumn.
    Best wishes,

  19. I'm in awe of your beautiful pictures. You've certainly got the knack. Bird i.d. IS difficult!! I've had to get lots of help many times because it drives me crazy not knowing!! But isn't it fun to learn?

  20. Wow Gary

    That is a pretty impressive collection of warblers. It is nice to get an idea of the different types in your area.

    Regards

  21. I can't imagine how can someone know so many birds! I'm so proud I can distinguish three species of thrushes that live here. I envy those people who know every grass, every bird and insect :)
