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 Area (northern Ohio).
The Black-throated Green warbler was probably the prevalent warbler I saw during Day 1 of my visit. They seemed to be everywhere! Colorful and flashy, I captured many images of this beautiful warbler. Today I’m featuring some of my favorites in Part 1:
Coming up … more warbler images, as well as additional species I captured at Magee Marsh.
Photographic Equipment Used:
- Canon 7D Mark 2 body
- Canon 100-400mm, f/4.5-5.6 IS lens, all shot at 400mm
- Handheld, with IS “On”
- ISO 800 (all images)
- Aperture f/5.6 (all images). Due to the frequent and sudden movements that warblers exhibit, a high ISO was required to assure any movement was “frozen”.
- Shutter 1/320 sec. thru 1/1600 sec.
