The Yellow-rumped Warbler, Dendroica coronata, is fairly common in the summertime. They are usually pretty busy moving about in the tree limbs looking for bugs. The image with the two birds fussing is a Yellow-rumped Warbler trying to chase a female American Goldfinch from her perch. Wish I had been able to get the entire bird in, but at least the action is interesting.
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.
