This is my first black-and-white warbler ever, not to mention that it is also the first warbler I’ve ever captured on camera. I went out alone at 5 p.m., armed with my DSLR camera and a telephoto zoom lens. What helped was the lovely late-day light. I had been standing still in the shade for some time, trying to capture a chipping sparrow — and then I noticed the black-and-white warbler.
