Three years ago I took the Kirtland's Warbler Tour conducted by the Michigan Audubon Society, I was grateful to get a fleeting glimpse of this rare beauty but disappointed that I didn't get any good photos.
This morning while driving down a couple of the roads in the Mason Tract of state forest, I heard 7 singing males, saw 3 and was able to photographed 2 of them.
|A male Kirtland's with no obscuring branches. Now can we get a little song.|
|Singing male but the lighting is kind of dingy|
|Better lighting but really?..... posing in a deciduous tree?|
|Ok we got the right tree but you're hiding in the shadows|
|Nice, but can we get another song?|
|Excellent but that background is a little distracting.|
|Ok good lighting, nice background. What, no song?|
