Lifers

Three Lifers today!

American Redstart - I hate lifers without photo proof, so I spent a long time getting something Merlin recognized.  I extracted an image from a video, performed a quick photoshop fix, and then cropped it:

I'll embed both awful, however species recognizable photos:

Yellow-throated Warbler.  More, bad photos extracted from a video.  I can't even get an app to recognize them, but I felt it borderline acceptable to upload them the Ebird.  Anyway, I'm 100% confident of the ID, as a fellow birder with a much better camera than I got a perfect photo, and both Merlin and iBird Photo Sleuth Identified the species.  I thought about embedding (outside of Ebird of course, as it's not my photo) that picture, but I didn't ask permission to use it:

Finally, a good picture - Short-tailed Hawk:

I got a Prothonatary Warbler yesterday! I was down in Fresno but didn't have any birding stuff with me. Ended up buying a pair of 25 dollar binoculars from target so I could go see it. Digibining didn't go so well through them. This is the best photo I got.

That looks like a Yellow Warbler to me. ?
