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 of Trumpeter Swans. Both swans were “stained” with a rust color, much like the coloration of immature, first summer swans. Here are a few of my favorite captures:
