One of the many warblers seen on the boardwalk at Magee Marsh (Crane Creek) during the “Biggest Week in American Birding-2018 !”  This is NW Ohio, the Warbler capital of the world!

Yellow Warbler, seen on the Magee Marsh Boardwalk, on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, during the “Biggest Week in American Birding!”  It truly was Warbler Heaven during this time. This is one of my best photos during that visit!  Using a Canon EOS 7D with a EF 70-300mm lens at: 300 mm; ISO 2500; f 25; 1/500 sec exposure.

Wren House Gets Snowed On

The snow will have to melt before any Wrens will want to make their home here! This snow has already melted and replaced, at least once! But we know that Spring will come! It has come faithfully every year, I can remember!!

Cedar Waxwing

Not sure if I have photographed one of these birds before. Sippo Lake, Canton, OH; 250 mm, f 14, 1/640th, ISO 3200,

Obviously the condition of the roads in the Spring prompted this sign! Probably amusing, unless you are the Superintendent of Highways!

Amish harrowing the ground with a team of horses. Spring has really come to Ohio!

I haven’t had a chance to go out and photograph all the harbingers of Spring, so I am posting this photo I took beside a walking trail, three weeks ago. Needless to say those flowers were later covered by at least two or three snowfalls!
