Purple Heron (not sure why they call it that ... nothing was purple on this bird) ... also known as Ardea purpurea.
Image made with D7100 + 150-500 OS at 500mm, f/8, 1/1000sec, ISO 400 (this image is part of the first shoot with the my new Sigma 150-500mm OS lens I had received last Saturday)

Beautiful photo...great capture. :)

My 3 week old new 5D3 couldn't be fixed here, so it's back to Canon in Irvine, CA. Hope they can repair it.

Took these Moorhen shots 2 days ago with the 5D3 (downloaded with card reader) and 100-400L @ 400mm. F/6.3, 1/320s, ISO 2500 and 6400, handheld.

I have enough trouble identifying European warblers, so I'm not even going to attempt a North American one :P.

Hello Jack

I think that the bird is a Tennesse Warbler.


Nice picture by the way.  :)

Thanks Click (and Kernuak)!

I was wondering exactly that and I guess last night when I posted I was just too worn out and frustrated after looking at so many internet pictures, to have the needed patience.  There sure are a lot of little birds that have dominant grey and touches of yellow.  I wish there was a check list against a picture such as jrista was kind enough to post for me, where a person could enter something like "yellow rump' and be directed to all birds that fit that description and then the next entry would allow greater fine tuning etc.  Especially since some items are definitive, such as eye circle is not full, or whatever.

Guess I was hoping life at my age wouldn't have to be so challenging! ;)

Here's two more shots that I think confirm.  The dark eye stripe at a glance to me was a shadow but now it stands out after looking more closely.

Any more advice relative to good books or IDing sites??
