Five reasons why MacGillivray's Warblers drive me up the wall:
- They like to hide behind sticks. This is not conducive to photography (unless you're trying to do stick photography, and I've already mastered that).
- They don't like anything that moves. That includes the photographer who might be silly enough to consider moving 5 cm to the left or right to get a clean shot.
- They are odd warblers that stay close to the ground (a good thing for photography) and love thick vegetation (a bad thing for photography).
- They have that wonderful combination of a bright body and a dark head. This makes for super fun exposure, especially in those rare instances where they come out from behind a stick in sunlight.
- They can't sit still for more than two seconds. Because they're warblers. And they hate me.
