Brilliant Orange

It is always a treat when this colorful orange and black, Baltimore Oriole shows up. We actually had some show up at our feeder this Spring! Likely they were just passing through, since we haven’t seen them recently. The catbirds do love the grape jelly we have put out for the Orioles!

Yellow Warbler

One of many warblers spotted during the Spring Migration at Magee Marsh, Ohio, a hotspot for catching sight of these beautiful birds.

On Guard

The parent eagle is handy to the nest with young, to fight off any predators!

Eyeball to Eyeball

Magnolia Warbler gets up real close! Of course I did crop the photo, so it wasn’t quite this close!

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.
