The courthouse lawn in Millersburg, Ohio has this display!

Touch of Scarlet

Shades of Autumn

Yellow Beauty

The Prothonotary Warbler makes his appearance, but can’t totally hide behind this small branch! I still remember the thrill I had, when I first saw this beautiful bird! For those who have seen these last posts of birding at Magee Marsh. Would you have preferred to see all the photos on one post, or would your preference be, to see one a day?

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.

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.

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!

Colts Everywhere!

Twins

Springtime is lambing time!!!

Birds in Flight

In the top photo is a Baltimore Oriole leaving a feeder after getting his grape jelly. This was the first time I saw this species this Spring. The bottom photo is of a female and male Northern Cardinal. The Cardinals were in a frenzy, going to and fro, the male chasing the female. It is obviously mating time!
