Default Townsend's warbler

Haven't posted much lately, as the weather and lack of transportation has kept me from getting out much. The transportation issue has been resolved, and today I managed to get some shots of a bird I've been trying to get for two years... a Townsend's warbler! Not only that, I got a pair, male and female! Yeah, I'm probably much more excited than I should be, but it's January, it's gray and gloomy, and I'm easily pleased at this point... LOL! Canon 7D2, Tamron 150-600 @ 600mm, 1/800 sec in Tv mode @ ISO 3200... The first two images are the male, the last two are the female.

G'day Rocky
Good to see more of your wonderful images
It seems that these fellas are quite small, so your results are all the more impressive

it seems that we both have grey, photographically unexciting weather ... but ours brings the first rains for many, many months - years for some people. Our TV yesterday showed water running in creeks for the first time in five years + farm people out dancing in the rain

Yes, they are quite small, but i was fairly close - about 20 feet - with a 600mm lens, so I was able to pull them in fairly close.

I've been hearing a lot about the horrible fires down there, and the dry weather... hopefully the rains help get those somewhat under control. I'd be happy to send some of ours your way... we've had mostly rainy, showery weather for almost a month straight here. A couple of brief sun breaks but that's about it...

Great photos. I love those little warblers. I never seem to see these guys unless I don't have my camera with me. LOL. Thank you so much for sharing the camera information. It is so nice to see what others are using for settings and equipment.

Phil, I hope you guys get more rain down there soon. We are generally a dry state and it gets tough. Take care.

Hi again LL

yes - we've had some decent rains over the past month or so - all the bushfires have now been 'washed out' and those parts of the country can now start on the long road to recovery

The 'but' is now this C-19 business that has the whole country in isolation to try to nip it in the bud and prevent large numbers of unnecessary deaths. The Aussie gov't has said that they want to try to keep deaths at 1% of infections to avoud the calamity of 100 yrs ago when the Spanish Flu was rampant. At the moment Oz has some 7000 infections (per 26 million people) and has 80 deaths, so we're a tiny bit above the 1% figure
