Biggest Week in American Birding: Song!

Prothonotary Warbler: Magee Marsh Board Walk, Oak Harbor, Ohio, USA, May 2023 — Tired of Prothonotary Warblers yet? This is what we might call full song…or maybe shouting out loud! And again, this bird was right beside the boardwalk. I only see them at Magee, so I have to get my full of Prothonotaries while I can. OM Systems OM-1 with 100-400mm zoom at 800mm equivalent.

India! Painted Stork

Painted Stork: Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur, Rajasthan, India, March 2023 — We saw hundreds of Painted Storks at Keoladeo, and all but three of them were immatures. I asked our guide why, and he said the adults were all out in farm fields feeding during the day. We found these adults late in the day, as the sun was preparing to set. Perhaps they knocked off early for the day. 🙂 Sony Rx10iv. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications.
