Cedar Waxwing (juvie).

Breaking in a new camera today, gift from Canon, whose service technicians no longer work on my former model. Didn’t make time enough to figure out all the gazillions of settings, so this morning’s photos are a bit meh—or would’ve been had a solitary Monarch not saved the day.

Fun hike in the fog this morning, with plenty of little songbirds flitting around. Forgot to turn on my GoPro, though, which was a first. Still and all, it really doesn’t matter, does it? Not when I got to see this little young warbler.
