2017—Looking For Gnats

Magee Marsh is known as a prime stopover for warblers that feed on the abundance of insects in the area before they journey across Lake Erie to continue on the northward spring migration to their breeding grounds.    However, my first bird photograph from Magee Marsh for the blog is not one of the thirty-eight species of warblers that I came to photograph although I’ve actually  photographed ten warbler species so far and seen a few more than that.  This is a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher that is looking for gnats.
