Adventures of a Wildlife Photographer: Magee Marsh Part 1

July 4, 2014

Photo by Rocky Holland – A Palm Warbler watches my every move at Magee Marsh, Ohio.

Spring bird migrations were excellent this year for any bird lover, and by the time you will be reading this column, will probably be all but done for the year. I’ve had the Rose-breasted grosbeaks, the Baltimore-orioles, White-throated sparrows and a few others pass through my backyard this spring. This made for some great photography and excellent bird watching. The birds are now pretty well settled in their nesting areas and photography opportunities still abound. The only thing I have to be careful of during nesting season is not to disturb any active nests. If I happen to see an upset bird, I usually just leave the area. Believe me, I would be the last person you would find to upset our feathered friends!
