This was the first May at Magee Marsh that I didn't see an American Woodcock.
I did see this nest with eggs right next to my car though!
Another May of mayhem at Magee Marsh is but a memory...now I'll dream of spending more time at Magee next year to see my favorite lil warbly buddies. In the meantime I'll go through the thousand or so photos I shot this year and relive the memories, one fuzzy photo at a time....and make you look at them too!
I also went to Ottawa and Howard Marsh after this morning at Magee...I'll share those soon...
The Bald Eagles were busy at their nests tending to obnoxious kids begging for food.
This was the first year I managed to get a couple decent photos of Bay-breasted Warblies!
Even one singing!
I love pointing out black racer snakes...there's always one person in the crowd that says "Ewwwww!" and runs away.
Now there's more room for me to get some warbly shots!
This was the popular pose for Black-throated Green Warblies this year.
I saw more than one like this...odd, very odd.
All the Cape Mays were high up today...and giving me the crazy eye and laughing.
Terrible pic of a beautiful Cedar Waxwing...they can't all be good...one would be nice though...
The invisible Eastern Screech Owl.
I never would have noticed him excpet for the fact that he roosts in the same tree most days...
This Magnolia Warbly was confused by the Maggie tattoo on my arm...
Amazingly that young Mourning Dove managed to stay in that rickety nest all cozy under mom.
Playing peek-a-boo with a Red-winged Blackbird...as usual...
Even a color blind guy like me can see a Scarlet Tanager!
Yummy! Caterpillars for lunch!
This Yellow-rumped Warbly doesn't seem too excited though...nor would I...
I'll leave you for now with a Baltimore Oriole booty!
See ya soon!
