Maine! Red-eye

Red-eyed Vireo: York County, Maine, USA, May 2024 — This is the first Red-eyed Vireo I have seen in Maine in a while. Maybe I have just not been looking in the right places. I heard it calling before it came close enough for a photo. OM System OM-1 with M.Zuiko 100-400IS zoom at 800mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom bird modifications. Processed in Photomator.

Biggest Week in American Birding! Memorial Day Eagle

Bald Eagle: Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, Crane Creek State Park, Oak Harbor, Ohio, USA, May 2024 — A pair of Eagles has nested over the parking area at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area for many years now. Last year there were at least 2 other nests in immediate area, but this year only the original nest seems to be active. The Eagles are very present, and a big draw for the tourists who get tired of looking for, and even at the small warblers along the boardwalk that have all the birders so excited. I mean an Eagle is an Eagle! And what better day to post an Eagle than on Memorial Day, when our thoughts go out to those who have served and died.

I had switched to Program mode with my custom birds in flight and action modifications just in cast the Eagle flew…which it was showing signs of doing. Processed in Photomator.
