Blackpoll Warbler, yes

Blackpoll Warbler, male, against a gray sky, on top of Cannon Mt. NH

Here's a side view

He was singing, and singing.

Went birding this weekend in northern NH and here are some photos of a Blackpoll Warbler that we found on top of Cannon Mt., NH. This is a cool warbler, that nests in spruce-fir forests and has a VERY high-pitched song, above some people's hearing range.
Gray sky, backlit, dense forest, very challenging conditions and I took these photos with my new Canon SX 40 point and shoot superzoom, with lens at full digital zoom as the bird was far away, hence not top quality photos, still.... I am still learning what this camera can do.
