Yellow Warblers & Cedar Waxwings

Discussion in 'Birds' started by andreasb, Jun 19, 2007.

  1. I have been going down lately to try to get some very small yellow birds, that I think are Yellow Warblers (?). They are very hard to get, never sit still for a moment, until this lonely fellow, sang his heart out two night ago against the setting sun.... Very high up but it is the best I have had of them so far.

    But he looked right

    and left but no dear lady seemed to hear him....

    I continued and spent two hours trying to get very flighty Cedar Waxwings. They hid under the branches and sometimes the Better Beamer would find them for a moment.

    I kept on trying and then finally at pretty much sunset I got one at close range in bush, but facing away from the sun...

    But then he changed his mind and flew to the other side of the tree, to the sunny side and I folllowed, hoping he wouldn't fly away, and he stayed so nicely for me.

    original.

    and then the sun went down and I had to go home....

    Those are wonderful Andreas. I can relate to the waxwings -- for the past two weeks, I've been camping out near some berry bushes behind my house. The waxwings come and go every 8-10 minutes, but, if I could combine the best features of all of my shots, I still wouldn't have the equal of these.
