Prothonotary Warbler

I’ve been doing some long lens photography recently – primarily focused on local birds. I’ve become fascinated by the Prothonotary Warbler (Protonotaria citrea) which consistently can be found at Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa.   This bird has beautiful song, a curious disposition, and incredible color. They don’t sit long for a photograph…but every once in awhile seem to indulge with a quick pose.
