WARBLER WONDERLAND

It was cold and nasty this morning at Magee Marsh. 37 degrees under cloudy skies with gusty winds coming off Lake Erie from the north. If you were a warbler it was a tokugh dfay to try to get enough energy to get through the next cold night. If you were a birder it meant your csmeras was of more use than binocs. Hungry warblers foraged at eye level, as close as three feet. Witness:AM RED BEST Male American Redstart.
