Finally. I got a photo of this beautiful warbler. There's a local wetland I visit when 1) I get up too late to hit some other spots. 2) don't have much time or 3) too lazy to go out farther. I've heard this warbler everytime I've visited the wetland in the spring/summer and have seen it once or twice. Ont this day, I was about to pack it in, but decided to check out the water to see if I'd see any beavers and something yellow flashed by. I thought it was a gold finch, but my trusty binoculars spotted this handsome fella. I spent some time or rather he spent some time with me. I took tons of photos, just in case I never get another shot.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

By the way, I'm sick of you East Coasters and Midwesterners coming in hear and posting photos of all your myriad warblers. :D

Great shot of the prothonotary, one warbler I've only just barely seen.

That's great, Al! You got two really nice poses.

Did you know that Prothonotary Warblers are cavity nesters? What this means is that you could watch it at length, until it returns to it's young (or eggs). Once you find the nest, you have a spot where it is guaranteed to be many times a day, every day. And you can get photos of it bringing food back to its young. Might be worth it to try to locate the nest hole. And searching for nest holes can be lots of fun, too........if you can bear the mosquitoes.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Thanks everyone for taking the time to stop by. My apologies for the late response - been away from the computer for a few days.

Again, thanks...Al

Tom, I'd love to find one of their nests, but no luck to date. I have found other bird nests, but I usually can't get back to the nest site until the weekend (work weekdays and only get weekends to play in the woods) and most times the birds may have already fledged.

Scrumhalf, there's a local warbler spot where they stop by during the spring migration season (doesn't last long enough), so I may be posting some more for ya :p. I had a pretty good year, but it's not always this good though.

Looking forward to it! By the way, my 11yo birder son has been clamoring for a trip to Magee Marsh next year. I dare say he may be the only 11yo in the world asking for a vacation trip TO NW Ohio (no offense to the fine people of Ohio living in the area!).

That's on my wish list. Maybe 2017.
