I finally had the opportunity to visit Magee Marsh in northwestern Ohio in May-the Warbler capital of the world. I had one of the best weeks of birding in my life (128 species) and without a doubt the most challenging week of photography. Weather wise you could not have picked better conditions. However, under the dense canopy of Magee Marsh the light varied from full sun to complete shade and everything in between in a manner of a few feet. And then there are those small yellowish birds that do not stay put for very long-milliseconds it seemed like. Anyway, I was able to photograph a few Warbler species that had eluded me before. I also was able to spend some time at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, Metzger Marsh, and Maumee Bay State Park in Ohio and well as my two local favorites-Pennypack Trust and Peace Valley.
