Yellow Warbler (Setophaga petechia)

Spring Bird Migration USA 01

I posted this on Instagram the other day hoping it would also post here and on Facebook. No such luck!

A first visit to the marshes on the southern side of Lake Erie in northern Ohio. The mission is to photograph the migration of warblers as they rest a little after their northward migration in order to get ready to fly across the water. The first day was a visit to Magee Marsh Wildlife Area and Ottawa National Wildlife Reserve. This image was captured in Ottawa NWR. The first time I saw a Yellow Warbler was in Churchill, Manitoba on a trip to photograph shorebirds in their brilliant mating plumage.
