Each spring when I visit South River Falls, I always look forward to where the trail comes down to the stream that eventually tumbles over the falls as the South River. It is at this stream that I can reliably find Canada Warbler. Their song gives me my only real chance at finding the bird. They blend in so well with their surroundings that without that song I might look right at the bird and not even notice it.
When I finally do find the bird, I then hope for a photograph. A long lens, patience, and a bird that decides to sit still in the open are all required. I have the lens, and usually have the patience. The other two, I think, are just luck. Last year I managed to get a fuzzy shot of a Canada Warbler. This year was about the same.
