Blackburnian Warbler. It is on at Magee Marsh!

Blackburnian Warbler, Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, Oak Harbor, Ohio

I only got to spend slightly less than an hour on the boardwalk at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area on the first day of the Biggest Week in American Birding, but I can already tell that it is “on” for migration. People saw 24 species of Warblers during the day, and in good numbers…and, in a mix of early and late migrants that is pretty unique for Magee. This Blackburnian Warbler was one that put on an eye-level show for us. Today is supposed to be sunny and seventies, and I expect you will not be able to get a parking spot at the Marsh after 9 am. 🙂 The real question is will any new-come warbler be able to find a feeding spot.
