Biggest Week in American Birding! Lonely and only

Black-throated Green Warbler: Magee Marsh Boardwalk, Oak Harbor, Ohio, USA, May 2024 — Nothing told the story of the strange year at Magee quite so loudly as the almost total lack of Black-throated Green Warblers…often the most present of warblers in the marsh…everywhere and in your face constantly. There may have been more Black-throated Greens the first week of the festival, but I only saw this one individual, my first day at Magee, and then not a single one the rest of the week. I am glad I took quite a few shots of this one. He might look like he is singing, but he is actually swallowing a spider. 🙂 OM System OM-1Mkii with M.Zuiko 100-400IS zoom at 800mm equivalent.
