Female American Redstart

I think That I have made my last trip out to the bay to capture this years migratory birds.  Th over growth of the vegetation is making it a real challenge to isolate any of these small warblers.  Yesterday was quite windy so the birds were lower in the branches.  I was able to capture […]

Elusive Avian Activity

Finishing up my week photographing the bird migration in Northwest Ohio, I found a cool and windy morning out by Lake Erie.  The boardwalk was still packed with people from Birders to Photographers and movement along the walk was a bit restricted.  What really caught my eye was the fact that as a result of […]

The Biggest Week

Here we are in the Biggest week in American Birding.  I have been spending some time out at Magee Marsh where many of the migratory birds congregate prior to making the long trek across Lake Erie on their way to Canada.  There are many species of birds coming through.  As many of our friends here […]

Nest Building

Earlier this week I stopped at a few places near Lake Erie’s shoreline checking on the bird migration soon to arrive here in Northwest Ohio.  The birds were a little sparse as yet.  A few ducks were in the waters by the road.  A great Blue Heron was basking in the sun near the Ottawa […]

Pied Billed Grebe

The countdown continues for the Biggest Week in American Birding.  My friends from the southern states are posting some interesting images of the migratory birds as they work their way towards us and on into Canada.  12 days and counting!  Magee Marsh and the other birding areas in the Great Black Swamp are already starting […]

The Black Swamp Conservancy has worked on many projects to highlight this area and the environment surrounding it. The wetlands is part of […]

Blue Winged Teal

My trip to the Marsh last weekend allowed me some time to spend with several species of water fowl located along the drive back to the lake.  Mallards, Northern Shovelers, and Pied Billed Grebes were plentiful.  I was watching from the shelter of my SUV and was able to shoot from there which gave me […]

24 Days and Counting!

24 days and counting until the Biggest Week in American Birding kicks off in Northwest Ohio.  I took a chance last weekend and traveled to Magee Marsh along the coast of Lake Erie to see if any of the migratory birds had arrived.  I wasn’t alone on the Boardwalk but the birds were few and […]

The Biggest Week in American Birding!

We are 30 days away from the Biggest Week in American Birding.  As the Warblers and other birds migrate towards Canada, they stop off for a respite along the coast of Lake Erie before the long flight across the Lake.  This activity can be observed all across the lakefront.  One of My favorite locations is […]

Black and White

Often times many images that I capture in color look even better or enhanced finished in Black and White.  A throw back to the days of Tri X film and processing the roll in my basement.  Certainly times have changed and there are many ways to take a color image and move it over to […]
