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.

I’m pretty sure this little, white beauty is Rue Anemone, but welcome any correction I may have made to this ID.

A Near White-Out

Today’s post features more Flowering Dogwoods (Missouri’s state tree) that were blooming profusely last week in the Lake of the Ozarks area. These images were captured along a rural roadside, on my way to check out an active bald eagle’s nest. Well, the eagle’s nest seemed to unoccupied (unless an eagle was very low in […]
