Yellow-rumped Warbler
Lens: DA 55-300 Camera: K5 Photo Location: BC, Canada ISO: 1600 Shutter Speed: 1/500s

I saw this female Yellow-rumped Warbler while out in a forest cutblock at work the other day. I saw it flitting around the branches in a remaining stand and it didn't seem to mind my presence. A few moments later I noticed that it had a nest in a whorl of branches on a lodgepole pine. Shortly after this photo was taken the male of the pair showed up on the scene. He was a little less tolerant to my camera...and he didn't stick around in one spot for a photo.

This was taken with the DA 55-300. Under good lighting conditions it can produce some pretty clean photos. The bokeh is a bit distracting but this image was shot at f7.1 with a tangle of branches and leaves around...not ideal for any smooth bokeh conditions.

Thanks for the comment SJM. I wish I would have been successful in getting a photo of the male as time.
