p.1 #1 · Warblers at Magee Marsh


Will anyone be shooting the Warblers at Magee Marsh in Northern Ohio this year? I have made many friends at Magee over the years. I look forward to seeing the folks that I only get to see once a year. If you would like any info on Magee Marsh give me a PM, I will do my best to help. Here are a few shot I have got over the years to push you toward the long drive



































































Please post any Warbler shot that you have, and thanks for your time.

Troy, you need to fix the links on all but the first shot. I will be there. Here is my feeble offering.

Prothonatory Warbler






Chestnut-sided Warbler

Beauties Troy. Some real pretty birds in the mix. There are a few I cannot view. Wonder if it is my end, of if the links just don't work.

Hi Troy and all,

Haven't been on N&W for a good while. Where does the time go?

Troy - can only see your first two photos --- they are super. Love the tanager.

I'll be at Magee from May 8 - 12. Three friends from here will be up some of those days. Will undoubtedly run into you if those days match yours. Can't wait!!! Hope to see you too Karl.

I always look forward to your migrating warblers Troy. The first two are a treat for the eyes. Unfortunately the rest don't show up I would love to join you but I can't make it. Good luck out there!!

I checked out Magee 2 days ago. It is looking good so far this year. The trees, and bushes have for the most part just started to bud out. The mustard weed ( I think thats the name ) in not up yet. There was a few birds along the boardwalk. A Hooded Warbler was a crowd please. I did not stay very long, just stop in quick to check out the leave situation.

Hope to see lots of old friends that I only see once a year, and to make a few more. Oh and a few good shots may help also.

I just read there is a pair of eagles nesting near the boardwalk. Right now they don't see any reason to close the boardwalk. Keep your fingers crossed.

I did some checking on this. The area of boardwalk behind the Sportsmen Migratory Bird Center is closed due to nesting eagles. The main boardwalk is unaffected by this. I will be there the whole second week of May. I will be spending some time at Pickeral Creek to watch the eagles fish from Sandusky Bay.

Spent 1/2 a day at Magee. Things are still a bit slow. There are very few leaves out. I did get good opportunities to shoot Blue-headed Vireo, and the White-eyed Vireo. I did not take advantage of such opportunity.

Bruce is right there is an big nest, or start of one right off the West entrance of the boardwalk. Today is the 1st time I have noticed it. From what I seen, and hear they started a nest but are not using it. The eagles where seen on the nest this morning not by me.

Yep, you betcha, I'll be there in 6 days to harass you Witt, that's about as much fun as photographing the Warblers.

See you soon Troy.

Bruce,

I checked out the nesting place near the boardwalk but they seemed empty. There were a few people from the Observatory who said the BE pair were out feeding. I asked about the closure and they said they will be posting a Don't distress sign board near there but not close it.
