Pic of the Day

White-eyed Vireo, Vireo griseus; Magee Marsh, Ohio

     America's Biggest Birding Week is taking place right now at Magee Marsh, just east of Toledo, Ohio.  The birds are moving through in large numbers and varieties.  Over the last six days I have seen more than a dozen different warbler species and four species of vireo's, including this White-eyed Vireo.  Lots of other passerines are passing through as well.  The Biggest Birding Week will go for twelve days or so, but migrants will continue to pass through until the end of the month at Magee Marsh.  Enjoy the spring migration!
