Now that I have finished my series on the City of Vancouver’s awesome City Bird contest (don’t forget to vote!), I will feature a few of the other beautiful or interesting birds that can be found in this part of the world. I should add that many of these photos were taken with lenses that I borrowed from Beau Photo’s rental department, including the two pictures featured bellow, which were oth shot with Nikon’s excellent 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom.
These Yellow-rumped Warblers were both taken yesterday morning in North Vancouver, BC: The first just off of Burrard Dry Dock Pier, the other at Harbourside Place, off of the Spirit Trail. Notice a difference? That’s right: The chins are either white or yellow. These two individuals used to be considered different species (white: Myrtle Warbler; yellow: Audubon’s Warbler), but are now considered to be two sub-species of the same species. Regardless, I think they are both quite lovely!
