Palm Warbler

Palm Warbler, Setophaga palmarum:  Magee Marsh, Ohio
     I recently spent a week at Magee Marsh photographing spring migrants, and while migration was a bit slow at Magee this year there were a few days of great shooting opportunities.  This shot was taken form the birding tower just off the main boardwalk.  While I was photographing a Magnolia Warbler, this little brown capped, tail-wagging palm flew in just above my head.  As it moved from branch to branch it struck a few perfect poses.
