On 25 Sept 2013 Dave Brown and I relocated a Yellow-throated Vireo found five days earlier by Dave and Jared Clarke in an alder lined gravel pit at Bear Cove, Avalon Peninsula, NF. A Yellow-throated Vireo looks stunning in the Newfoundland alders. It is a less than annual semi-regular fall vagrant. The bird was travelling with a Warbling Vireo (also rare, a few per autumn) and a Red-eyed Vireo. We were getting quite a few looks at the bird. Photo opts were above average for this usually briefly seen species. However, the photographing conditions were abysmal - dark heavy overcast, drizzle and fog. Even setting the camera at ISO 2000 I was getting only 1/160 second shutter speed. But that was all it took when hand holding a 300f4 lens. Distances were also rather great. The result are some heavily cropped, highly grainy shots that with a little Photoshop love came out as OK record shots of the beautiful Yellow-throated Vireo in Newfoundland.
