I joined one of Dave Brown's birdwatching tours to Cape Race on Monday. The weather was as good as we were going to get. On this trip I added nine birds to my 2010 list and seven to my life list. We saw over 30 different species of birds and among them was the Yellow-rumped Warbler. You may remember that I posted an earlier experience with this kind of warbler but the spring blue colors of this returning warbler were amazing! It was like seeing the bird for the first time. It flitted around from bush to bush at Cape Race. I did the same to keep up with it. With the combination of the fresh look of this Yellow-rumped Warbler and my new lens, I was able to capture some much better pictures.
I think that I will be deleting a lot of old shots as I break in my new lens, just in time for the Spring and Summer influx of birds.
