The rare warbler I saw on Friday has been hanging around our house recently. It is a
Black-throated Blue Warbler and is really a south-eastern species, having between 15 and 25 official reports in Alberta. A few people have been over to see him, but all these photos are mine.
Here, it’s bending it’s wing over its back to get past a close tree branch as it flies.

really great photos! have not had the chance to scratch this guy off my birding list yet….
Awesome photos!!! Why couldn’t that be around when we went birding! 😛
These are wonderful photos Ethan. I especially like the one where the wing is bent backwards. What a great experience to identify and photograph this unusal (iin Alberta)and beautiful bird. Canmore birders must be camped in your front yard!
Beautiful photos! What a find! 😀
