I photographed this Prothonotary Warbler in the vines near Miners Cove which is at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. These birds like staying in the dense, woody areas near water which makes it difficult to get a clear shot of one.

I parked in the area looking for a Raccoon that I had seen earlier. The Prothonotary Warbler came near my pickup and I got several photos.

I had my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
