Capturing A Fast Bird With A Slow Camera.

I spent the morning at the Black Swamp Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Northwest Ohio and was able to capture a few gems. Warblers are fast birds that rarely sit still and I was able to capture this male chestnut-sided warbler as it was foraging in low shrubs along the boardwalk. Enjoy......................Jim

Jim,

Looks to me the camera AND the cameraman were plenty fast! Nice shot!

Yep - nice capture - and little birdies are so quick. "I", not the camera, was too slow the other day to catch a Redstart - I had not seen one in years - and not around here before.

Missing spring bird migration. Not a big event in central Florida and most don't even sing until they get north. Doesn't ever get much better then what you got for a wood warbler in it's habitat.

Back before I went fully digital I had Canon G3. Cameras of thatvintage weren't terribly fast. Sandhill cranes aren't particularly fast, but combined with a slow camera, it still wasn't easy. I eventually came up with this on.

Here's a bird I had for a few weeks, in Central Florida. Came in with a bunch of finches and left with a bunch of finches! An Indigo Bunting and he had a younger male with him, but no female that I ever saw. This is the first Bunting I have ever seen in all my years here in Florida, hope they remember my yard next year!

Hi,

Thank you for comments! Rich, those indigo buntings are quite scarce up near me--not enough brushy woodland edges near my house. You should have painted buntings which are common down South. I had a chance at one, but it never came within range of teh 300mm f4. Here's another shot of a tired tree swallow. :
