Special 'K'!

"I see you!"

Oh, it's definitely a Special K...but not the Kellogg's cereal....THIS Special K was spotted this morning by our other Special K, Kenn Kaufman on the beach at Magee Marsh!

There's a lot more to Magee than the boardwalk, not to mention the outstanding Ottawa NWR! Make sure you get around to all of the sites during the Biggest Week in American Birding because you never know what may be out there!

Here's another view of our stealthy him yet?

You know, when every camera is silent...mine is still shooting!
What is this elusive and very rare booty?

Is this enough for you to figure it out?

You won't find these field marks in any of your field guides!

There he is! A rare and wonderful Kirtland's Warbler!

Look for him and more at BSBO this weekend! The weather is good for a great number of new warbly things this weekend!


  1. ...a Kirtland's Warbler!! You lucky duck, you! ...and your photos are stellar.

  2. Excellent photos of the Kirtland's Warbler! Congrats on a very fine bird!

  3. Excellent shots!!! Well done Dave - now send him across the lake to Long Point, and I'll look at him on Thursday.Thanks!

  4. Thanks Buddies! I asked him to make a stop across the lake...he didn't seem to be listening to most everyone else...

  5. Brilliant stuff Dave - a friend of mine is there at the moment and successfully twitched the KW!

  6. I am so jealous! It's on my must-see list, but I'm sort of out of range again. It will have to learn to show up earlier next year! Great photos.

  7. Thanks Matt! I'll bet I bumped into your friend out here...somewhere!

    Thanks Marianne...maybe you need to get a longer telephoto lens! Bob says hi by the way!
