Occasionally Heard, Rarely Seen...

By TerryMcK  
Cetti's Warbler in full view. I was very fortunate to get a rare but all too brief opportunity to photograph this elusive little bird. Despite its small size, Cetti'e Warbler (pronounced chetty) has a short but very loud, distinctive call. A bird you are more likely to hear than see.

I'm grateful to those who responded with Votes and kind Comments on my previous post, "Last & First". Special thanks to Geoff (gwood) and Mike (Mike_Young) for their valued User Awards.

A good and close capture of this elusive bird. You usually hear it and do not see it!!

A wonderful image Terry, a bird I have never knowingly seen, but probably heard. I have to admit I find it difficult to tell the warblers apart Wink PM's

Low profile by nature yet a pretty little fluff ball. TG

Barry and I spent ages listening to one very close by - but only got a brief glimpse of a streak of brown, through dense tree foliage from time to time. Great to actually see one. Better still to get your picture. Gill
