Biggest Week in American Birding: My favorite!

Blackburnian Warbler: Magee Marsh Boardwalk, Oak Harbor, Ohio, May 2024 — I had to wait until today to photograph my favorite warbler: the Blackburnian. I found two more or less cooperative individuals on what turned out to be a mostly sunny day on the Boardwalk. Blackburnians are warblers of the high canopy, and I have only ever seen them anywhere near eye-level at Magee. This year, or a least today, they hovered a bit above that and most of my shots are looking up. Still, such a stunning bird! OM System OM-1 with M.Zuiko 100-400IS zoom at 800mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom bird modifications. Processed in Photomator.
