Warbler Colors

4 posts in this topic

Got about 120 good Warbler images in a couple hours today for reference. I shot in jpeg only today to save time and it gives good results if the white balance is right.

The Restarts made my arms sore-they never hold still!

Male Redstart


Black and White



Not sure?

In my Peterson Warblers your fourth photo looks like the spring female Magnolia. Maybe first spring since the eyebrow is not real distinct? But I am not an expert. The Redstarts came in with the Black and Whites at my house, as well, but no Magnolias. I had Yellows, Oven Birds, Black throated greens and I think possibly a Tennessee, but I wouldn't try to take that id to the bank. Even the thrushes and thrashers. What's with everybody all coming on the same day? Your photos are really beautiful. You get such a sense of the detail without cropping too much of the wonderful bg. I love them.

The Magnolias are especially tough to post process. Alot of contrast in those birds!

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
    • All of you who wasted your votes can thank us later.  In four years you'll have another chance to earn your right to be critical of the POTUS.
