[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was up at Magee Marsh the last couple of days and was thrilled to captured this Male Black-throated Blue Warbler. I love its rich contrasting colors and bold markings.

Some years these pretty little warblers show up in fairly large numbers, while other times they are quite scarce. The migration has been very slow this year with only a few species showing up in sparse numbers, hopefully it will pick up this week.

Hola Ron, hermosa especie que no conocía, me gustan los colores del ave y los detalles de su distribución...saludos...

Hello Ron,
Beautiful coulred Warbler, reminds me Indian Magpie Robin. Beautiful BG and composition. But details and DOF not such great what I watch in your bird picture. But good eye contact. A few feathers look bit over sharpen and got glittering white (Beak too).
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

Hello Ron,

You have captured the Black Throated Warbler in a nice pose. The sharp details & the natural color against the BG gives a good tone to the image.

Thanks for sharing.

Warm Regards,

Hello Ron

Beautiful photography of this warbler species, fine POV obtaining its eye-contact,
excellent focus, sharpness, and details, beautiful light and color tones of the background, TFS


This is a very good looking Warbler, Ron.
I gather that these are migratory birds that visit your area on their way somewhere else. Lucky you!
The image is just perfect in every respect and the perspective is just classic.

Hi Ron,a very difficult situation with the black plumage versus a clear background,but you work very well,the sharpness is excellent and the composition is well exposed,just a bit of noise in background. Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano.
