Orange-crowned Warbler Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: Orange-crowned Warblers are one of those birds you take for granted. When spring migration is in full swing, and migrating warblers are moving through, you're constantly scanning the trees and shrubs for warblers. When your binoculars train in on an Orange-crowned Warbler? You think "just another OC Warbler", and you continue scanning on. They ARE one of the most common warbler migrants, so perhaps it is more difficult to appreciate them as compared to the less common warblers. But in honor of this common migrant, I'll choose a local photo from the park across the street as my favorite. This photo of an Orange-crowned Warbler was taken on May 10th, 2009 at the Big Sioux Recreation Area in Brandon, South Dakota.
