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 to see some activity. I found this Pied Billed Grebe in the waters along the road that goes back to the Boardwalk in Magee Marsh. There are other water fowl in the area and I hope to capture a few more this coming week. This bird has its breeding plumage as seen by the black strip on its beak. It appears to be an adult and is often found in ponds and marsh areas. Join me in the coming weeks as we work our way along the boardwalk seeking some great images of the migratory birds here in Northwest Ohio. Enjoy!
