Yellow Rumped Warbler

Time for more bird pictures! The small songbirds were pretty active this morning. I could hear them all over the front and back starting at about 7:30. I grabbed the 500 with a tele-converter and tried shooting with it handheld. The results weren't too bad. Since it was a little cloudy, I had to turn up the ISO.

This is a female Yellow Rumped Warbler and is pretty common all over North America. I'm told they can even be found (on some occasions) even as far north as Newfoundland in the winter.

Technical Specs: Canon 1D3, 500 f/4 IS + 1.4x (700mm equiv.), f/8, 1/500s, ISO 1600.
