And apparently the only way I can get a legible shot of a barn swallow. I'm pretty sure in the second photo he's sticking his tongue out at me.

Warblers are migrating to my region. My birding book shows the first pic is a Yellow-rumped warbler (male). The second warbler isn't in my book and depending on the gender, I have no idea. The last image I recognize as a sparrow, but there are sooo many varieties I'm clueless again. I don't know how birders can recognize all the differences, but admire their skill.

So I set my iPhone up in a fork in the tree where the chickadees were nesting, turned on the camera, and then triggered the shutter remotely via my Apple Watch. The phone is maybe 6" away from the bird, while I was 10 feet away. They seemed a bit suspicious, but they were too busy feeding their young to think too much of it. It did okay, but it's definitely a place where smartphones have some work to do.
