Biggest Week in American Birding! Kinglets

Ruby-crowned Kinglet: Magee Marsh Boardwalk, Oak Harbor, Ohio, May 2024 — While warbler numbers, individuals, not so much species, were definitely way down this year at Magee, Ruby-crowned Kinglet numbers were definitely way up. They were everywhere…and that’s good from a photographer’s point of view, because if there is anything harder to photograph than a feeding warbler, it is a feeding Ruby-crowned Kinglet. They seem to be trying to be everywhere in the bush at the same time…never setting for more than a second in any one spot. You can waste a lot of bound electrons chasing them.
