Things are happening so fast that I’m having trouble finding time to edit and post video clips. After just two days at Land Between the Lakes, I’ve managed to get very nice video footage of singing White-eyed Vireo, Blue-winged Warbler, Prairie Warbler, and Northern Parula.
This morning (April 21), I snatched a delightful sequence of a White-eyed Vireo singing in a thicket of shrubs and small trees in the middle of a clearing. Although I haven’t mixed in the final audio (which I recorded separately in stereo), here it is with the inferior monaural sound registered by the camera itself (a Canon EOS 7D with a 500mm lens and 2X teleconverter).
I rather like the muted understory lighting, which the 7D handled very nicely. Also note the soft, out-of-focus pastel colors in background. Let me know what you think!
