Black and White Warbler

Black and White Warbler, Magee Marsh, Oak Harbor, Ohio

Near the end of the day yesterday, after the Optics Alley Tent had closed, we took one final walk around the boardwalk at Magee Marsh to see what what was up…or rather, what was down. I had only gotten eye-level shots of Yellow and Palm warblers so far this trip, and I was hoping for more species. Just as we were on our way back to the car, we came up on this Black and White Warbler working down low, below eye-level in fact, and despite the failing light, could not resist trying to capture it. 

The Black and White, to my eye, is one of the most elegant of the warblers…despite, or perhaps because of, its limited color range.  It seems to day, “let the others have there yellows and oranges and reds…I am content in basic black and white.” (And to say it very well at that.)
