The Spring Warbler migration is basically finished. I was again delighted to travel to Magee Marsh, along Lake Erie, a hotspot for spotting warblers. I was able to add 14 new birds to my life list! I don’t know when I will see my next new species, which will put my recorded Life List to 300.

The First Look

Glasses off, and Binoculars on!

Birder at Magee Marsh

Swartzentruber Amish boys heading home after a long day of birding! Their church doesn’t use bicycles!

It was a fun day, when many of us from the company I work for spent some time at the home of this young lady on the right, getting the landscape prepared for her wedding day. I scheduled this post, so today is actually the wedding day, which we are privileged to attend. It is an Amish wedding so it will be at their home! I helped shovel mulch onto the wheel barrows, while some of the girls took it to wherever it was needed.

A lady enjoying the Millersburg “Rails to Trails” trail which is a great place for walking. My wife was way ahead briskly walking her daily morning walk. I am lagging behind, with my camera and binoculars, getting distracted by birds and their sounds! I use the Merlin app, to identify bird sounds, and sometimes even get to see the birds. Looking forward to the Warbler migration which has already started, but will soon pick up speed! With the warm weather the leaves on the trees are starting to come out, which will give the warblers some cover, and make photographing them a challenge!

All Eyes

I gave this little girl some candy, which she is holding on to. She was not sure what to think of this candy carrying photographer! So happy and content, on her Father’s lap!

Changes

This tree is showing off it’s Springtime blooms, showing the change from Winter to Spring. As soon as this lady passed this tree, she turned around, reached into her purse for her flip phone, took a photo of the tree, put the phone back in her purse and headed on home! Amish taking photos is also a change!
