5/24 Connecticut Warbler

Tower Grove Park • St. Louis, MO
Last week I saw my first ever Connecticut Warbler and got lousy photos. It is No. 334 on my list of Bird Species Photographed in Missouri. Today was one of those days you only dream about. It migrates through here and is a very sneaky ground feeder usually in dense cover.

A few of the birds seen, complete set and larger sizes in gallery.

I even managed two videos although it was only 17 feet away so DOF and keeping focus was a major problem.
