Song birds are a wonderful subject to photograph when you have the chance to get close, and this is especially true when they perch on spring wildflowers. The great thing about these birds is that you can find them on almost any hike you take. While I don't often go searching specifically for them on a trip, it's a wonderful bonus when they pick a perch right along the trail, and even more so when they start to sing!
