We made our annual visit to the Magee Marsh/Crane Creek area just east of Toledo last week. As usual, the boardwalks were often packed, and birders and bird photographers lined up to see the spring migration along the Lake Erie shoreline.
Although the predicted fallout never materialized, there were still plenty of birds to go around and fill up memory cards.
This year, I spent a good deal of time photographing from the observation deck at the boardwalk main entrance. Not only did it help to lessen the impact of the crowds, but the backgrounds are cleaner and the light better.
I’ll be posting some of my favorite shots, including this American Redstart:
We create artistic images of our encounters with nature and our blog is a journal of our experiences. All of our images are free to download and use for educational use, presentations and personal printing usage. (please make sure to leave our credits intact)!
