Warbling Vireo in Bartram's Garden: in album birds
|May 3rd, 2011, by Alex Zorach|
I often hear Warbling vireos, but I find them tricky to photograph: this is the first photograph I have ever taken of one. There were a number of these birds singing in Bartram's garden, on the day I took this picture. This particular bird was not singing.
Bartram's garden, a botanic garden and arboretum, located on the Schuylkill river, is one of many good spots I have found for birdwatching in Philadelphia.
The sunlight gives the appearance of this bird having a gold crown; it does not! That is an artifact of the sun filtering through leaves and branches.
