  1. My initial impression was Philadelphia, but looking closer I'm not so sure. The yellow seems like more of a wash and the facial pattern seems strong but is still giving me more Warbling vibes from the face alone. Philadelphias should have the yellow brightest on the throat, but this bird seems to have yellow brightest on the sides, and I'm not sure how much of the yellow on this bird is coming from leaf reflection.

    I'm leaning toward Warbling on this one but it would be good to see more photos if possible.

    Incredible day! The Alder Flycatcher, Worm Eating Warbler (my nemesis!) and Yellow Warbler were all lifers.  For the distance covered, I got a good number of species as well.  I'd normally walk further here and get more species, but I spent a lot of time at the Alder Flycatcher stakeout spot:


    Your "Yellow Warbler" has flank streaking, I think it's a Prairie.

    How do you decide what width-height ratio to crop?  The app I use allows me to specify free hand, fixed ratio, or fixed size.  I've been using fixed size 2000 x 1500 simply because that approximates my monitor dimensions.  It's better than when I wasn't cropping at all but sometimes still leave a smaller / distant bird a bit isolated in the image.

    It depends on the photo. I usually use 4:3, but sometimes 3:2.
