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!

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.

Magee Marsh-Best Photo

With flitting warblers, and migration peak over, I was glad to get at least one good photo of this prothonotary warbler. The Audubon Field guide states this interesting fact: The name “Prothonotary” originally referred to a group of official scribes in the Catholic Church who wore bright yellow hoods, as this bird appears to do.
