Wilson's Warbler, Cardellina pusilla: Magee Marsh, Ohio
at "Biggest Week in American Birding"
I have had a wonderful time at Magee Marsh this week. While the birds have not been the best I have seen, I had two great days of shooting. This little Wilson’s warbler was one of my favorite shots. It is difficult to get clean backgrounds at Magee, but I positioned my self for a green foliage background that blurred out of focus just perfectly for this shot. I hoped that the Wilson’s would alight in the right place, and it did. Wish all the shots from this week had a nice background like this. Backgrounds can make or break an image!
