Pic of the Day

Palm Warbler, Dendroica palmarum:  Magee Marsh, Ohio

     Most Palm Warblers I see are in Florida, in winter plumage.  So, when I came across this fellow all decked-out in his spring best, I could not wait to get photos.  The Palm is just one of many warbler species that are easily seen from the Magee Marsh Boardwalk.   Palms pass through Magee and head further north to Michigan's Upper Peninsula and northern Minnesota, into Canada, from Labrador to the Northwest Territories where they nest on the brushy edges of spruce bogs.
