This BT Green warbler was a first on a couple fronts. I think it's probably the first time I've seen one forage on the ground (though with the trees barely even budding perhaps the may-apples are the closest thing it could find to canopy). I know it's the first time I've ever had my first of the year BT Green as a seen-only bird; usually the zee-zee-zee-zoo-zee floats down from the treetops first.
White-throated sparrows, on the other hand, are abundantly seen in the undergrowth.
I've always had trouble with processing my ruby-crowned photos, they always seem oversharpened. Maybe I just need a better image to start with.
