Prothonotary Warbler, Prothonotaria citrea: Magee Marsh, Ohio
While atop the boardwalk tower at Magee Marsh this little Prothonotary Warbler created quite a stir among some of the birders. The rust colored, dirty forehead and crown had many birders clamoring over the bird’s identity for a while. I caught this image as the bird sang its territorial song just off the boardwalk. By the way, this image is heavily cropped, but doesn’t diminish the enthusiasm in the little guy’s song.
