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.
