1600 is BAD

Oh, shoot! We started out at dawn in the park this morning. There were some deer beside the road grazing, and I wanted to get a couple of shots, so I set my camera ISO to 1600. Fine, but I forgot to change it back, and everything is very noisy...No good pictures, but we did see a good many birds: towhees, catbirds, juncos, redstarts, wren, a flock of cedar waxwings who had just had their morning baths and were preening, northern parula, eastern wood pee-wees, ravens, the black-throated blue warbler below, black and white warbler, kentucky warbler(?) and the funny long eared bird at the bottom.
The culprits who precipitated the wrong settings.

Black-throated Blue Warbler

Kentucky Warbler (?)

Black and White Warbler

Female Towhee - "Look Ma, no hands!"

Name That Bird!

Gee, I wish I HAD a 1600! I bet you were disappointed that you forgot to switch the settings though. I once did that and took all my wonderful shots on VGA (email setting)almost died!
I just LOVE that little blue throated warbler - and the 'no hands' and I am amazed that the warblers you get!!!
