Pic of a Day

Yellow Warbler, Setophaga petechia:  Magee Marsh, Ohio
     This is another of my favorite shots at Magee Marsh this past week.  Again, it is not so much the bird as it is the background that I like.  This image was shot in almost the same spot as the previous post.
     “Petechia,” in the Latin name refers to the red streaking on the breast.  Petechia, defined by the Mayo Clinic is “pinpoint, round spots that appear on the skin as a result of bleeding.
     The Yellow Warbler is most likely, the most abundant warbler in the Americas.  It breeds over most of North America, and was by far the most abundant warbler at Magee Marsh.
