This is one of my favorites—a Black-and-white Warbler flying from perch to perch, singing it's high-pitched squeakyt song: wee-see-wee-see-wee-see (sounds like a squeaky wheel).

This difficult exposure situation, with patchy sunlight and a bird composed of blacks and whites, shows how well my Canon 7D handles high contrast. Even in clips where portions of the bird are in full shade and other portions lit by sun, the results look really good (at least to me). I really do love this fabulous new technology!
