Black-throated Gray Warbler (Dendroica nigrescens) User: Brian  (See all photos - 917)
Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - I returned to try to get better shots of this Western vagrant. Light was good, temperature was pleasant (+4C) and I saw it for longer than a few seconds which was last time. Worth the trip.

Amazing find, spectacular shot, amazingly sharp focus even in flight, great timing. Well done Brian!

No one was more surprised than me that this actually worked. The shutter speed was set very high (1/6400) so I captured a few shots in mid-flight as the bird hopped or fluttered to a nearby branch to continue feeding. This was only possible because the warbler was in sunlight rather than shadow.

Great find and capture.
I hope that it doesn't die of the cold.

It is unlikely to attempt to migrate further but let's hope it at least makes it through to the Christmas count
