Tennessee Warbler

Tennessee Warbler
A really, really BAD photo, I know, but this is the first (and very quick!) shot I've taken of a Tennessee Warbler, and I wanted to add it to my Birds of Alberta 9 album.

Sunday, 25 May 2014, was the annual May Species Count, and it went really well. There were seven people in my group and we travelled in two vehicles, covering a large area SW of Calgary and W of Priddis. The Count lasted from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and the weather was mostly clear but clouded up by noon, with a short shower while we were having lunch at Brown-Lowery Provincial Park. This was when we saw this little Tennessee Warbler, not far from the parking lot. Heavy clouds for the rest of the day, calm, 9-18°C, with 88km travelled by car.

69 bird species were found, plus 15 White-tailed Deer and two Moose. Most species were seen from far away, but I did manage to get just a few photos of several of the species. A good day!

It's more than I have ever seen or photographed of one of these pretty little birds! I would take it if I could too!
