White Breasted Nut Hatch. The birding season has begun here in Northwest Ohio and South East Michigan. As the bird migration continues we look forward to capturing many images near our parks, refuges, and even our back yards. The above image was captured here in Michigan in a setup that my wife and I arranged on our Lake property. Its just the start of the season and a handful of birds have arrived. The Sand Hill Cranes are already settled in the area as well as geese, Great Blue Herons, and an occasional Swan or two. My long lens and steady hands captured this Nuthatch around one of our feeders. As the weather warms up, we can take the pontoon onto the lake and find even more photo opportunities. Stay tuned as the season progresses, Enjoy!
