I've been staying in Port Clinton, OH, where I went to my first ABA board meeting on Wednesday (5/5). Yesterday and today I birded west of there, primarily at Magee Marsh boardwalk, a very warblery spot. Today I saw 22 species of warblers, including Bay-breasted, Cape May, Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, Golden-winged, Ovenbird, Northern Parula, Blackpoll, and Yellow (everywhere). We saw both the Black-billed and Yellow-billed Cuckoos, all of the possible thrushes, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Baltimore Orioles, Eastern Kingbirds and the more common year-round birds. The boardwalk is like a very glorified lengthy Sabine Woods boardwalk (with which I'm more familiar, a sanctuary owned by the Texas Ornithological Society, near Port Arthur). I hope to add some warbler pictures here soon.
