Prothonotary Warblers

Yesterday’s post featured the Yellow Warbler during my recent kayak outing. Today’s post features the Prothonotary Warbler (Protonotaria citrea), also captured during that outing. Both of these species of warblers are abundant and active right now. I also heard a couple of Common Yellowthroats while kayaking, but could not find them in the dense undergrowth where they typically forage.

Here are my favorite Prothonotary Warbler images I captured from the kayak:

Then, time for a little song:

Love these colorful little birds. They can be extremely active, making photographing them difficult. But they are worth the effort!

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 7D body
  • Canon EF 100-400mm, f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens
  • Handheld from the kayak, with IS “On”
  • ISO400
  • Aperture f/8
  • Shutter 1/80 sec. to 1/500 sec.
