Magee Marsh - Friday May 9, 2014

This was my first time at Magee Marsh for the Biggest Week of Birding.  I have seen pictures of the crowded boardwalk and the crowded parking lot but just never imagined how intense it gets out there. This was definitely worth taking a couple of days off from work for. 

Here is what I managed to get photos of:

American Red-start

Baltimore Oriole

Black and White Warbler

Blackburnian Warbler

Black-throated Blue Warbler (female)

Black-throated Blue Warbler (male)

Black-throated Green Warbler

Blue-headed Vireo

Cape May Warbler

Chestnut-sided Warbler

Gray-cheeked Thrush

Least Flycatcher

Magnolia Warbler

Mourning Warbler

Northern Parula

Nashville Warbler


Red-eye Vireo

Warbling Vireo

Wilson Warbler (not very good photo but good for ID)

Yellow Warbler

Yellow-rump Warbler

Canada Warbler (not a good photo but good for ID)
A few others photographed but shown: Woodcock (nesting), Rose-breasted Grosbeak (male & female), Gray Catbird and the Bald Eagle.
Next stop Detroit Zoo.
