A few different Warblers

Recommended Posts

I went down by Lake Superior looking for shore bird and that did not work out but I was able to find some Warblers. These guys seem to move as fast as the Chickadees.

The first 4 pics I believe are Nashville Warblers.

Great warbler images sir, I especially enjoy number three and four, warblers are so small, both of those images have pleasing light and great habitat that illustrate just how tiny these sprites are when compared to a cattail or tanzia flower. If you go to the point again, head out onto the lake side by the airport and walk as far as you can towards the Wisconsin entry, there have been pretty good shorebird pickings there lately smile

Best time to work that shoreline is from 3-7PM (lightwise), also, because of the dredging work that has been done within the last year, there is now a really unique point that juts out a bit into the lake, last week the shorebirds were piling up in this area.

Thanks for the info Shawn. My plan was to do a little scouting last Sunday and spend the day or evening this Sunday. I will let you know what I find. I went to the spot on 40th ave by IWM but stopped at the gate. Do you walk down from there ? I was not sure how strictly they enforce the road or gate.

Thanks for helping with the IDs Mike. I really wish that I could have got pictures of all the different species because I am sure there were a few more that I missed.

Jim, always walk from the gate because even if it is opened it might be closed at any minute. I have never had an issue with any of the workers that I've run into out on the pier area, in fact they have even occasionally stopped to tell me about a pelican or a heron that was hanging around. I think they are pretty much done working out there now, so you probably won't run into anyone except a birder or a drunk fisherman smile

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
