Palm Warbler, Curious

A Palm Warbler was doing his thing in the lower vegetation at the side of a swamp.

As you may know, warblers of all sorts are speedy and are mostly photographed exiting the spot you noticed him. Fortunately for me, this one’s curiosity slowed him down.

Then he gave me a jaunty pose.

He heard something, gave it another look, then dove into the underbrush.

Palm Warbler

I had been watching some small birds flit in and out of the underbrush at the side of the road. The sun had just come up and they were hunting for breakfast in the lowest, darkest parts of the vegetation. This Palm Warbler finally took a break in the sun on a reed frond.

I was able to get a few steps closer and get a few images at a different angle before he went back to foraging.
