First an update: It has been confirmed that the mystery bird in yesterday’s post was a winter Myrtle Yellow-rumped Warbler. At first, I considered a Pine Warbler, but after contacting my friend Eric Carpenter in Austin, Texas, he indeed confirmed the yellow-rumped.
That was so much fun getting different opinions on the ID of that bird, I am thinking of maybe having a weekly contest. Let me think about that. 🙂
So now, to answer Katie (her blog), who commented to my Northern Cardinal post, by asking if I had photos of a female. Well, certainly, dear Katie, anything to satisfy my readers. Here are three of my best.
Image number 1, photographed July 7, 2007. Canon EOS 20D with Canon 100-400mm lens. 1/250 sec. @ f7.1, ISO 400. Partial metering and aperture priority.
Image number 2, photographed June 27, 2009, Canon EOS 40D with 500mm lens and 1.4 tele-converter. 1/200 sec. @ f7.1, ISO 800, minus 1/3 EV. Partial metering with aperture priority.
Image number 3, photographed April 29, 2008, Canon EOS 40D with Canon 500mm lens and 1.4 tele-converter. 1/200 sec. @ f7.1, ISO 800. Center-weighted metering and aperture priority.
I hope Katie and the rest of you enjoyed these photos. Anytime that you wish to request certain species photos, if I can accomodate, I certainly will, if I have some presentable photos.
