I am used to seeing warblers far and up. It was hard getting used to seeing them too close to focus my big zoom lens point-n-shoot camera! Here is a very cooperative Chesnut-sided Warbler, almost too cooperative!
Seemed to "glow" in the low light like he was radio active. Such a nice looking bird. The warbler decided to come close and give some funny expressions.
Here is a Cape May Warbler that just sat on the edge of the parking lot for a while. The heavy leaf out made lighting a challenge.
I was expecting to see many more Magnolia Warblers than I did, only a handful. As of this morning, I noticed a good deal of them around still. I was only able to get the rear end of one.
One of my most needed group of birds is shorebirds. I have a lot of holes in that area, as there isn't much in the way of quality shorebird habitat in this part of the state. Have I known the area better, I think I could of gotten some that I need.
Here is a shorebird that was right off the boardwalk. This American Woodcock was with a baby. I could not get a shot of the baby, as there were too many people to see it from my position.
After Magee, I decided to head to Maumee Bay State Park. I have only been here a couple of times and always see good stuff here. Just as it was getting dark, I saw shorebirds flying around on the beach. I decided to go check them out and found three Ruddy Turnstones. I have only seen this bird once, and it was a very brief glimpse at Caesar Creek State Park.
I decided to end my two day trip on the boardwalk at Magee. I am glad I did. There was a report of a Kirtland's Warbler on the new Crane Creek Estuary Trial. While not a life bird, the one glimpse I had of one was very brief. This particular female was very cooperative and allowed many people to view her. This was definitely worth the trip.
