Orange-crowned Warbler and Friends

I finished my new photography blind and pond/waterfall a few days ago. I’m going to take some pictures and post them at a later time, but I just had to try it out! I was able to capture an Orange-crowned Warbler flying around our Orange tree. They look like a hummingbird at first. It’s not the best image, but I at least got a decent shot for ID purposes….now it’s time to get a better photo!

  1. Hey there! I was looking for photos of Orange-crowned Warblers…I think what you’ve got here is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet. I could be wrong but…maybe take another look?


    1. You could be right, Jess. I’m certainly NOT a bird-person! I’ll have to research that and I’ll make the change if need be.
