I was pleased to be able to photograph a few, including:
Northern Parula:

A Visitor from Afar

Ahhhh….the benefits of electronic media!
Yesterday evening, as I was surfing Facebook, I saw a post and photograph of a Pacific Loon that had been sighted at Eastwood Lake (in Dayton, Ohio). Coincidentally, my plans for this morning would take me right by the lake. I was able to stop briefly this morning, just to confirm that the loon was still around, and then once my meetings were completed late this afternoon, revisited to get some images.
He was still at the lake, and did approach fairly close to where I and others were observing.
In case you’re interested, this loon’s range is shown here:
