Nesting Time!

Today’s post comes from my recent trip to Magee Marsh (northern Ohio) to capture the migrating warblers. Near the end of my trip, I ran across 3 separate Yellow Warbler Nests being built.

Cape May Warbler, Part 1

Not!!! I apologize for the mis-identification of this lovely bird.  As a couple of birding friends pointed out, this is a male Black-throated Green Warbler, not a Cape May.  Sorry for the misinformation! 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 […]

Fun Friday: Looking for a Snack

Today’s “Fun Friday” post was captured earlier this week, while kayaking a local Missouri Conservation Area. With several species of warblers now in the area, I was photographing Yellow Warblers and Prothonotary Warblers from the kayak. One Prothonotary Warbler was very active, hunting insects/spiders around the trees that are standing in the creek. It was […]

Nesting Along the Water’s Edge

On Saturday morning, I went to one of my favorite places for kayaking. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to kayak, since it has been over a year when water levels were sufficient to kayak this area. Fortunately, all the recent rains made it quite kayakable! The main issues at this location are fallen […]
