|A beautiful Prothonotary Warbler emerges after a short rain shower along the boardwalk at Magee Marsh in northwest Ohio.|

|Yesterday, at work, I hung some Rothko prints on the wall -- one was the yellow and blue painting. As I look at this shot of a Prothonotary Warbler from behind, it seems Mother Nature and Mark Rothko were dipping from the same color pots!|
I hope you had a more productive summer of birding than I did. In all of my adult life, I never spent a summer more removed from nature, and I hope I never have to do that again. My first day back in the woods two weeks ago was like a balm. I had no idea how much I rely on the woods and all the creatures within to keep me balanced and happy. Lesson learned...get to the woods, or the fields...or the beach (and stay there if you can)--because we all know it, Birding is Fun!
