Chestnut-sided Warbler #biggestweek

Chestnut-sided Warbler: Magee Marsh Boardwalk, Oak Harbor, Ohio, USA, May 2022 — I did a little scouting before my Point and Shoot for Warbler workshop yesterday morning along the Magee Marsh Boardwalk, and knew, right way, that it was going to be a good day for warblers. I was greeted by close and cooperative Magnolia, Black-throated Green, and this Chestnut-sided. If you have not been to Magee since last August’s storm, it is a very changed place. Most of the huge cottonwoods are down, and the canopy is mostly gone. It makes for very different light along the boardwalk, but so far, the birds do not seem to mind. It has brought the foliage on the low brush out early (or so it seems to me) so the the warblers have lots of leaves to hid in, but they are there, and that is what counts.
