On a couple of recent visits to Kissena Corridor Park I have really enjoyed watching wood-warblers against the backdrop of autumn. Though the birds’ colors are muted from their gaudy spring finery the fiery colors of fall more than make up for what the birds lack.

Anyway, here are three shots I feel pretty happy about and thought I would share – if you feel so inclined please feel free to share some links to your autumn wood-warbler pictures in the comments.
