Incredible two days of warblering at Magree Marsh boardwalk - given the leafless trees, the warblers were in full view and abundant - All the expected warblers, and some unexpected in attendance including:
Too many to count:
Multiple sightings of:
-Black- and- white
-Blackburnian (one flew into my face)
I missed the Golden-winged warbler - but there is still tomorrow morning…….
There were at least a dozen Swainsons Thrushes on the beach by the Estuary Trail as if they were waiting for a ride to Canada
Dozens of kinglets
There was a cooperative Lincoln’s sparrow on the boardwalk
I recommend that if you are in the area you spend some time at Howards Marsh - a new Toledo Metropark, several miles west on Rt 2 - it is a magnficiant 1000 acre protected area of marsh with a loop auto route and plenty of boardwalks and viewing access. On Howard Rd, near the Marsh, 22 Avocets were cavorting in a field.
Can you tell it was an inspiring two days and great intro to the migration season.
