Hello Jim,

I am struggling with the name: black-throated green warbler!
Why green?

On the other hand, no struggling whatsoever with this shoot!
Your birdie is so vivid and lively!
My favourites are 2 & 3 for their composition.

As usual, keep'm comin'

Perhaps my old friend and shooting partner for this episode, Gerard Pas, can weigh in on the derivation of the name Daniel. I must confess, I've never seen a green one!

Jim,

While the bird seems to have a "yellow" head and I might also be tempted to call it a "Black-throated Yellow" it actually derives its name because if you look carefully at the top of its head, it has an "olive-green crown", "olive-green" ear patches and a green mantle. Thus Black-throated Green.

Lovely sharp shot with amazing DR coming from that rig, a pleasure as always to shot warblers together. Now you've forced my hand to reactivate my account, which means subsequent postings in the future.

And even a green kerchief in my last shot - something I've never seen before! And brown eyes...with the D300 the eyes turned to black in the jpegs.

Gerard chose a dull day, the blossoms were at their peak and the bird was a stroke of luck - most of his cousins stayed up high.

Quite a striking warbler, if not the prettiest.

Jim,
Another great set of images. The third one is my favorite. These guys have been singing for a little over a week here, but our leaves are much more advanced than yours.
Thanks for sharing,
Tim

Yes, we have another week of reasonable shooting conditions Tim. Not many warblers here though - with a number of species I've only seen one or two birds.

Wonderful series Jim, especially with the blossoms and the space created with the half-formed leaves. You mentioned only about another week or so of good shooting left -- why is that? Will most have migrated through by then or will the bushes be too fully formed? ,
Take care,

Both and more Chuck: the blossoms drop, the birds move on, the leaves fill in and the good spring light becomes summer light.

great series Jim. I was out trying to get some shots of the warblers but they are much too quick for me. I think I need to stick to something a little more my speed.... vultures

They are much tougher to shoot than a snowy owl in flight, but the principle is the same: stay loose, don't think and just shoot. Oh...and pre-focus in front of the bird.

Beautiful results Jim. Your pictures pretty much answer my question - but how have you found the overall experience using the D7100 for these type of shots (and birds-in-flight)? I'm currently deciding whether (and how soon) to replace my D300s. I'm only hearing good things about the IQ, but not so good with regard to the buffer for action shots.

Thanks,

Pete

My answer Peter is that I haven't replaced my D300s with the D7100 - just my D300 which I was using for tripod work with my 500 f4 AF-S. All of my birds in flight shooting will still be with the D300s and 300 f2.8 VR (plus TCs) which is always ready to go in a separate bag. I tried the 1.3x crop mode on the D7100 but quite frankly I prefer the D300s with or without a TC-14E.

Thanks Jim,

Certainly good reasons to hold onto the D300s. Will be interesting to see if Nikon actually comes up with a direct replacement - that would make it a no-brainer. Of course, being that we're discussing photography equipment, my attitude may change at any time...

Most likely I'll hold onto the D300s for the foreseeable future.
