Default Palm Warbler

This is a tiny bird that never seems to stay still. Most photos come out with the bird moved or blocked by branches. I captured these birds in Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge going from limb to limb in Cypress Trees.

K5, DA* 300mm F4

Very nice Ed, I have had little luck with small birds. You got some amazing detail and no distraction in the backgrounds, great job

Indeed a very "flighty" tiny bird that is very difficult to photograph - but you have done amazingly well here. Thanks for sharing!

Palm Warblers do a lot of hopping around; you did a nice job isolating them when they got in the open. Nice shooting!!
