On Sunday, May 6th Judy and I decided to check out Magee Marsh that is in the vicinity of Marblehead Lighthouse in northern Ohio.
It is the peak season during the “Warbler Migration” and this is the prime time to check them out at the marsh.
There were a couple of other Folks who thought the same thing.
When we first arrived we walked the trails for a couple of hours and saw the following “critters”.
They are left to right and top to bottom, a Black and White Warbler, a Prothonary Warbler, a Redstart, and a Catbird.
Judy also made friends with this guy:
I believe that it was just a common water snake, but Judy immediately asked the question “Why does the water snake cross the path???”
Shortly after seeing the snake we moved on to the board-walk, and saw the following varmints
These were a Yellow Warbler and —you guessed it — Ninja’s
Just before you enter the board-walk, at the edge of the parking lot, these two Bald Eagles have built a nest. We couldn’t see inside the nest, but there was a lot of activity from the pair, fishing the shallows of Lake Erie which is just at the edge of the parking lot.
If you get the opportunity, Magee Marsh is a great way to spend a day,
