I doubt that they were intentionally not taking photos of females. I, for one, seems to see less females than males, in general, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the OP didn’t even see any females.

Let me ask it differently. Why take only photos of male warblers in the spring?

Perhaps it's because the bland colours of the females make them less noticeable than the colourful males. You know, the same muted colours that make them less noticeable when they're nesting might make them less noticeable when they're off the nest too. Then again, maybe @Miss Marge doesn't like female warblers and deliberately turned the camera away every time she saw a female warbler. *sarcasm intended*

Like @Seanbirds, I wonder why you'd ask such a question. Just what kind of response were you expecting?  *shakes my head*

Yep, same.  Perhaps it's because they're easier to find because they're singing, etc., but I don't think that's the only reason.
