[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I went to see the baby Piping Plover and to take some photos of them and in a way back to home I stopped again at the Mourning Warbler. The same harsh light but I managed to take some more photos.

Often elusive and hard to see well, the Mourning Warbler sings a repetitious chant from thickets and raspberry tangles in the north woods. This bird lives near the ground at all seasons, foraging in low brush and in the forest understory even during migration; it tends to be solitary, not readily joining flocks of other warblers. It got its name because the extensive black throat patch of the male suggested to pioneer naturalists that the bird was dressed in mourning.

Hello Peter,
This is a very nice bird. I like the pattern on the wings, very nice colours. Very good sharpness and details. I like the composition and pose of the bird.Regards Sigi

Hi Peter,
A splendid shot showing good focus, depth of field, nice background. A nice catch light in the eye shows nice eye contact.
