    Col. Sam Smith Park in Toronto is where the 3 of us spent the afternoon.. and I received my first lesson in Warbler shooting.. tough bird!! they hide in the thick bushes, and bounce around like a ping pong ball! here we go..

    1 First, I found lots of these Tree Swallows

    2 then a Hooded Merganser

    3 and a Northern Mockingbird...

    4 And I believe this is a Palm Warbler ... Peter???

    9 On the way to meet some friends for Dinner, we stopped at Valley Inn... this RWBB shot is one of my best of this year...

    10 And, lastly, I almost never get through a shoot without an image of the ever graceful Mute Swans...

    Wow, you did a great job of capturing the elusive Warbler. Love the shots of the swallows too. Well done.
