Title: Yellow-throated Warbler
Post by: Dinusaur on October 25, 2021, 06:08:18 pm
First time I saw one was in the month of June, 2016 in Thickson's Woods, Whitby. The bird was high on a tree and barely managed to get a decent ID photo of it (photo #1). The next opportunity to improve that initial photo of the bird came over the week-end when I dropped by Bronte Bluffs Park in Oakville on Saturday afternoon. With the help of other birders we managed to locate it high on a canopy (photo #2). It eventually came down lower to accord better close up photo (Photos #3 and #4). We are all in the pursuit of perfection - I am not quite there yet though.

I've heard of fish finders, and metal detectors, motion detectors and star finders. This site has its own rare bird finder. I hope it never runs low on battery power otherwise we are all screwed. It takes a special person to photograph a special bird. Long live Dinu! I trust that I have faithfully relayed the script that you sent me.
