A few days before the Fourth, a pop-up thunderstorm resulted in a wonderful rainbow stretching over the lake: Coming up … fireworks over the lake.

Today’s post features another colorful warbler, another “lifer” that I captured during this year’s spring warbler migration at the Magee Marsh Wildlife […]

Black-Throated Blue Warblers

I’m now back home after a week’s trip to Nebraska and then to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Quite a travel experience … I-29 roads are flooded in some areas, requiring detours, but the trip was otherwise good. I was able to spend some times at the falls in Sioux Falls … I’ll be sharing those […]

Magee’s “Big Birds”

Today’s post comes from my recent photo trip to Magee Marsh, in northern Ohio, along Lake Erie. Magee Marsh is noted as a stopover for migrating warblers heading north, into Canada. But more than warblers visit this fabulous location! The second bird I saw at the Marsh, even before entering the boardwalk, was a pair […]

It’s Not Just For Little Birds!
