|Magnolia Warbler -- Magee Marsh, Ohio|
|Red-eyed Vireo -- Magee Marsh, Ohio|
In addition to the birds, I ran into Matt Mendenhall, associate editor of Bird Watching magazine. After a morning of shooting birds Matt and I met for a late lunch and had a great conversation about birds, birdwatching and kids, not necessarily in that order. I also ran into Richard Crossley of Crossley Bird Guide fame. Richard is a very nice fellow, we had a great time talking birds, photoshop and photography. He was also at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge today autographing his new, earth shaking, field guide.This Red-eyed Vireo and Magnolia Warbler were photographed on the boardwalk at Magee Marsh. The vireo was captured as it looked under leaves for insects and the Magnolia was captured as it bounced from tree limb to tree limb searching for food. This might be the peak of warbler migration here at Magee Marsh. The day was very, very good. I’m here for another day to photograph the birds and then I'm off to Canada where I hope to meet them at Point Pelee on the north shore of the lake.
