Yellow Warbler at San Angelo SP

The Yellow Warbler (Dendroica petechia), is not a permanent resident of west Texas.  They only make occasional appearances here during migration.  For that reason, I felt lucky to get to see this one at San Angelo State Park, back in September of 2009.  I was sitting in the blind there when it flew in and entertained me and Ann for a few minutes.

Back then I still owned my Canon EOS 40D.  I used my Canon 100-400mm zoom lens, hand-held.  Exposure was 1/500 sec. @ f6.3 with ISO 400, aperture priority.

  1. It’s a very very pretty bird, isn’t it? Wow, I love the color. In the first shot, it looks like the bird is just about to take its flight. And then, perhaps, it thought – Well, better sit here and pose. Hehe. 😀

    Love these photos, Bob. 🙂
