Tweety Bird

I have to admit that I'm a fan of colorful little birds. Get me close to a Yellow or Prairie Warbler, Indigo Bunting or Scarlet Tanager and I'm happy. In fact, getting close to these little guys is sometimes more challenging than photographing a tern colony or heron rookery. This handsome bird is a Prothonotary Warbler and you can find them nesting on Delmarva's wooded swampland. Their song - usually of six loud, ringing tweets in a row - lets you know they are close-by, often before you see them.
