Blackburnian Warbler

Today’s post features one of my favorite warblers that I photographed during the spring warbler migration at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, in norther Ohio … the Blackburnian Warbler.

The Blackburnian Warbler is a very strikingly colorful warbler. Unfortunately, I only saw a few of these jewels in the trees … and most were high in the trees. But I was able to capture a few decent images. Here are some of my favorites:

Coming up … more warblers from Magee Marsh.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 7D Mark 2 body
  • Canon 100-400mm, f/4.5-5.6 IS lens, all shot at 400mm
  • Handheld, with IS “On”
  • ISO 1600 (all)
  • Aperture f/5.6 (all images). Due to the frequent and sudden movements that warblers exhibit, a high ISO was required to assure any movement was “frozen”.
  • Shutter 1/1000 sec. thru 1/2000 sec.
