...could you come down out of the treetops for just five minutes so I could see you head-on?

Our Little Miami River Yellow-throated Warblers...
Every year a Yellow-throated Warbler couple takes up residence along the same stretch of river-front property along the Little Miami River. The male starts singing early, and often, and I look forward to his effusive and amorous strains that fill the treetops. The only problem is, Mr. and Mrs. Yellow-throat like their high-rise digs and never come down to visit us earth-bound bipeds, so my photos of them are always fuzzy and grainy and over-cropped...
|...he's mocking me. I know it.|
|He's sitting pretty, but way beyond 400mm shooting...|
|...sing out little fella! Everyone loves to hear your song.|
Join me at the Biggest Week!
...if you're heading to Cleveland for spring migration, let me know. I'll be at Magee Marsh Monday - Thursday. If you're not going to be there, stay tuned. I'm going to report in every night with photos of all the sweet birds that came my way. I can't wait!!
See you on the boardwalk!!! :-)
