The Magnificent Magnolia Warbler

Via Flickr:
One of my favorite warblers, the Magnolia Warbler is all decked out in his vibrant breeding plumage for the big show at Magee Marsh along Lake Erie in Oak Harbor, Ohio.

I was delighted beyond words to find this striking warbler within a few minutes of stepping onto the boardwalk at Magee Marsh. This started my day out with a big bang and put a permanent smile on my face for the rest of the day.

Janet, fantastic image of a most lovely bird! Their markings are stunning. I've been seeing a lot of Magnolia Warblers in our area lately. Not easy to get a great photo as they flit about so. You have managed beautifully though.

I would have had a big smile on my face too. I hope to get up to Magee next May. Looks like a fab time.
