Warbler Trip

Cerulean Warbler, female

Magnolia Warbler

Chestnut-sided Warbler


Ovenbird, top view

We had a wonderful time at our trip to Crane Creek/Magee Marsh and Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge warbler birding hotspot in OH. Here are a few of my photos. There were many warblers and challenging photography conditions. The Cerulean Warbler was an unusual find, and I was happy to get a photo of the female. Magnolia Warblers were thick there, and so were Chestnut-sided Warblers. An Ovenbird, a ground dwelling warbler that usually is heard, not seen, came out in the open, giving photo ops. I like the top view showing the neat rufous stripe down the center of the crown. We'll have more for you when we get home, we're still on the road.
