Ken Conger saw this Yellow-rumped Warbler during an autumn visit to Jamestown Island, Virginia.
The warbler (Dendroica coronata)
was perched on a bayberry branch at Jamestown Island, which is part of Colonial National Historical Park.
"Besides the history," wrote Ken, "visiting Jamestown can be productive for a variety of bird species." He took the shot with a Canon 20D and a 400mm f/5.6 lens.
