Biggest Week in American Birding! Warbler close-up

Bay-breasted Warbler: Magee Marsh Boardwalk, Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, Oak Harbor, Ohio, May 2024 — There is nothing like a good close shot of a warbler…in this case a Bay-breasted…like the ones you sometimes get along the Magee Marsh Boardwalk. This shot was only at 538mm equivalent on the M.Zuiko 800mm equivalent zoom, so I was indeed close, zoomed out a ways to fit the bird in the frame.

Maine! Air Traffic Control

Common and Least Tern: York County, Maine, USA, June 2024 — At the mouth of one of our tidal rivers the Least Terns nest in great numbers, and the Common Terns are attracted by the sand eels. It is inevitable that they sometimes occupy the same airspace. OM System OM-1Mkii with M.Zuiko 100-400IS zoom at 800mm equivalent.
