Pic of the Day

Cape May Warbler, Setophaga tigrina:  Ottawa NWR

     I photographed this Cape May Warbler about a week ago while photographing Neotropical migrants at Magee Marsh, Ohio.  Migrants typically stop at Magee to feed and rest before flying over Lake Erie.  This particular bird was feeding on willow catkins at Turtle Creek, part of Ottawa NWR.
