Canada Warbler: my first shot

Canada Warbler: Metzler Marsh Wildlife Area, Oak Harbor, Ohio, USA, May 2022 — As I mentioned yesterday, the Canada Warbler has eluded me for a dozen years of visits to Erie Shore in Ohio, looking for warblers during the Biggest Week in American Birding. I have seen a few but never gotten a photo. This is not a great photo, but as they say, it is my own! Typically this Canada was working through dense brush on the back side of the little woodlot next to the parking at Metzler Marsh, rarely showing more than a glimpse of yellow through the twigs and leaves, and working the bird and taking 100 or more exposures, this the only image I got. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. ISO 200 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
