This female American Redstart, Setiphoga ruticilla, is the only one of these warblers I have seen. They are easily identified by the pattern on the tail which it spreads out quite often. The adult male has red feathers in place of the yellow seen here.
I am a rank amateur birdwatcher and avid amateur bird photographer living near Conway, NC. Being retired allows me plenty of time to devote to the hobby/obsession. Most of my bird shots are taken in our yard near Burnt Bridges. I shoot with a Nikon D300 and D200 using the 500mm f/4 and 200-400mm f/4 VR lenses. The 500mm lives on a Wimberley head on a sturdy carbon fiber tripod. I have recently, June, 2012, purchased a 600mm Nikon f/4 which is now my main birding lens.
