Where am I?

Warblers are generally tough to photograph, but this little guy was amazingly compliant last weekend.

A Prothonotary Warbler put on a good show on the Magee boardwalk. In truth, perhaps he was a bit confused. It is a long way to fly in from the tropics, and it is always good to check your landmarks.

"Yep, I'm at Magee! Here's the sign."

Thanks to the Division of Wildlife for preserving this habitat, as it benefits all manner of wildlife, including warblers on the move.

Magee Marsh is one of my favorite "happy spots" and many of us got our first looks at these winged jewels at this Lake Erie location. It is amazing just to be there to enjoy nature- especially with the likes of BT3 (Bill Thompson III) and other friends like Ann Oliver, Kathi Hutton, Peter King and Dave Reinhart. That's your blogger dead center, sporting the silly grin I get from watching warblers!

Magee- there is no better place to meet up with some of the finest birds and birders in the world!


  1. Ya know, some of us can't catch a break with that little yellow bird. I am SO jealous!

  2. Strickly a lucky shot. Even a blind hog gets an acorn once in a while! :)

  3. Nice photo! Congrats on nabbing that one. Hope you have good birding weather for the long weekend.

  4. Thanks Gabrielle-

    If I could only paint them as beautifully as you do! CBH
