[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From my trip to Ohio.

A small warbler of the upper canopy, the Northern Parula can be found in two rather distinct populations. The southern population nests primarily in hanging Spanish moss, while the northern population uses the similar-looking old man's beard lichen.
•The distribution of the Northern Parula has an unusual break north to south. It may formerly have nested in that zone, and was eradicated. Explanations for the disappearance may be changes in habitat or increasing air pollution, which limited the growth of epiphytes on trees that the warbler depended on for nesting.
•Since the 1950s, Northern Parula has nested several times along the coastal region of northern California, far from the normal range.

Hi Peter !
Outstanding ! The light , details and colors are simply wonderful! A delight to look at ! TFS Tina


Good picture, The colors and the composition is well. With Luxury of 1/1250 of a sec i think you should have gone for more DOF ( Closed the aperture) to include more of the bird's back in the DOF
