I had a great morning at Central Winds; I saw 15 warblers, my highest total of the Fall so far. The biggest highlight for me was my first of the year. Here’s my list: Ovenbird, Worm-eating Warbler, Northern, Waterthrush, , , , American Redstart, , , , , Warbler, , Yellow-throated Warbler, and . I also had one Swainson’s Thrush that perched long enough for an ID; others flew by with it, but they were too quick.

This Worm-eating Warbler was the photographic highlight for me. It was actively foraging right along the trail, and often it was near eye-level. On occasion, I was able to get sharp images of it with relatively clean backgrounds. There was very little light, so I shot these at 3200 ISO. But these are by far my best Worm-eating Warbler photos. It decided to pose with a mouth full of food on the first photo.

ID Shots
The Magnolia Warbler was much less cooperative, and all I was able to get is an ID shot. Here it is, just in case you want to see it.
