Chestnut-sided Warbler.
 
I have been seeing several juvenile or first winter Chestnut-sided Warblers in the yard for a couple of weeks, but yesterday was the first adult male (non-breeding plumage) I have seen. I was able to get a few images of him interacting with one of the juveniles too. My backyard has been a treasure chest this year!
 
Today is Solar Eclipse day here in Bear Woods and across the country. I decided that I didn’t want to fight any traffic today so I will be shooting it in the backyard. I will post images and hopefully a time lapse video of the event in the next few days. Since we are not at a 100%, only somewhere around 98%, I will have to leave a filter on the camera for the images, unless I see it is covering more of the sun. This actually makes it a little easier for me with less gear to worry about. I am really interested to see all the images that come out of the event, which is another big reason I am staying home, since there will be at least million other photographers shooting the eclipse. I have debated on purchasing stock in Nikon and Canon since there is a good chance a lot of sensors will be burning up later today as well. Be careful folks, don’t burn your eyes out!

Chestnut-sided Warbler.
 
Another one of the summer migrants that has been hanging out with me for several days is a really neat little Chestnut-sided Warbler. He spends most of his time exploring the Crepe Myrtle bushes but wandered closer into the sunflowers the other day to pose. I have said it previously but it is worth repeating, I am really mixed about the fall migration this year because I am seeing so many varieties of Warblers, and I know I will see more, but I really am going to hate to see them go…
