  • On the Green.

Two years ago, I was pleased to see an increased volume of warblers at Magee Marsh (this past year was the slowest I've seen!). For instance, there was one day when four male Blackburnian Warblers (Setophaga fascia) flitted about within feet of me, one coming so close as it foraged for insects that I could have reached out and touched it! Magee is definitely a magical place for a few weeks each spring as the majority of migrants stop to refuel before hopping Lake Erie to their breeding grounds in Canada.

These are startlingly beautiful birds...fireheads. In the summer months, they are mostly in Canadian pine forests, nesting at the tippy-tops of the trees.

A gregarious character who isn't prone to shyness, the Canada Warbler (Cardellina canadensis)
breeds, yes, in Canada. But also in the northeastern U.S., and all the way down to Georgia along the upper elevations of the Appalachians. Known by its black necklace, the Canada warbler is an avid fly catcher, chasing many an insect down on the wing. It will do so by startling flies out of hiding and then darting off its twig to catch them.

Such a fly and flight aficionado is this warb that it has historically borne names such as the Canadian Flycatcher and the Canadian Flycatchimg Warbler.

  • Birds in Flight - Great Horned Owl
---------------
Oliver, the Great Horned Owl, put on quite the show during my first Raptor Photography Workshop at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy. I'll post some video showing how fast be flies at the assembled photographers, who are often lucky to snap off one or 2 captures in focus.
