In the spring of 2013 I spent a week in the New River Gorge in southern West Virginia in search of the Swainson's Warbler. My goal was to film this species singing from its Rhododendron forest habitat. I located a few individuals at different sites and found them very easy to hear but quite difficult to see. Swainson's Warblers forage and nest on the ground, creeping through the leaf litter, turning over leaves in search of prey. They also sing extensively from the ground as they walk along foraging, making the prospect of seeing and filming them in the thick vegetation quite difficult. After several days I found an individual that sang occasionally from perches within the Rhododendrons and shot the following clips. Shot on 29 May 2013 in Babcock State Park, West Virginia.
