Pic of the Day

Black-and White Warbler, Mniotilta varia:  Magee Marsh, Ohio
     The Black-and-White is one of my favorite warblers.   These beautiful birds are always on the move, rarely stopping as they move through the forest.  It is often seen hanging upside-down, as shown in this image, searching for insects hidden under bark plates and tree limbs.  So looking forward to returning to Magee Marsh next fall.

  1. I'm hooked on this warbler as well, Bobby. It reminds me of a nuthatch in its behavior.

  2. Hi Bob, I often thought that as well. I just love it when they circle around a tree upside down.
