Yes !!! A decent Warbler capture and of all subjects one of the most difficult a Northern Parula, I gonna tell you to get one of these guys to hang on a branch for your focus lock to do its thing you may think it is easier to win the lottery, but I found my opportunity when he paused to preen about 40 to 50 feet in distance, remember patience.

I really like how the blurred green background has really helped accentuate and highlight the fine feather details and delicate colouring on the mantle. Nice!

I was also out yesterday trying to videoscope Bonelli's Warbler Phylloscopus bonelli - a really flighty little bird. it hops on to a new perch gives off its trilling little call and then hops 4m aways to the next perch. averaging 3sec per perch. after long hours I managed to get a 2sec video clip of one calling!

very satisfying. It looks horrible. but I videoscoped it and you can hear it calling, so I am happy!

thanks for joining "Digiscoping Today", btw.

Thanks Dale American Warblers are the biggest challenge for Digiscopers
and sought after.
I would of like to have a straght scope for tracking purposes the angled Scope leaves me with a time gap locating the Bird,also the next one Iwould like to be about 15 to 25 feet for that full frame capture!
