Pic of the Day

Chestnut-sided Warbler, Setophaga pensylvanica:  Magee Marsh, Ohio

     Magee Marsh is about the best place in the country to photograph migrating warblers.  I shot this Chestnut-sided warbler only a few feet from the boardwalk as it munched down an insect.  If you love watching these little jewels you must visit Magee Marsh.  I have found the best time to visit to be between, May 7-21.  Warblers are not the only draw at Magee.  You will also find Grosbeaks, Orioles, Thrushes­­, and an abundance of other passerines.  I’m looking forward to getting back this coming spring.
