Photographing them posed a few problems....first off, they like to stay high in the treetops. On the first leg of the Miami Fort Trail, I waited patiently for about 45 minutes, hearing males on territory singing, but not coming down from the treetops.
We moved on and about a quarter mile later we reached a point where the trail edge was a sharp drop-off. Here, the Ceruleans were almost at eye level. In addition to watching and protographing the male, we got good looks and a couple of images of the female as well. What a treat!
|A rare treat to watch interactions between a pair.|
|Easy to see why the female Cerulean Warbler is hard to spot. They blend in with the spring foliage.|
