Kirtland's Warbler, Setophaga Kirtlandii: Grayling, Michigan
Taken on a beautiful spring morning a couple of years ago near Grayling, Michigan on the Kirtland's breeding grounds. This little guy was singing his heart out defending his territory. I photographed this bird and its mate on a Kirtland's Warbler tour out of Grayling. I have made a number to trips to photograph this endangered species over the years, but the last trip I made a couple of years ago was the absolute best, as this bird came quite close. I'm looking forward to making another trip this coming spring.
(Notice, winter has not yet arrived and I'm already looking forward to spring.)
