no twitchers, i'm not talking about old world reed-warblers, rather the striking Yellow-rumped warblers that come through Maplewood each spring.
If you are lucky and time it right, watching the "show" (as i call it) at the pond can be pretty amazing.
the viewing platform you are above the marshy reeds and can get decent
shots of the warblers as they hawk insects and whatnot in front of you.
you shoot from beside the platform along the pathway eye level shots
are possible and desired, wood warblers are often viewed high up in the
trees so whenever you can get them at eye level, ya gotta spend some
time working it
days in a row shooting these guys, yesterday i parked my car inside the
gate and had to leave early before the automatic gate closed, just as
the "show" was getting good, today, i decided to go back (parking
outside this time) in the afternoon, after the rain and it was pretty
All Audubon's variety at the moment, which i needed better shots of anyways. check!
