2022—The Magnificent Masked Magnolia

During our four days at Magee Marsh, I was able to photograph the magnificent Magnolia Warbler only once, on our last day there. My three colleagues were able to photograph this beautiful yellow bird several times throughout our visit but for some reason, I was just never in the right place at the right time until near the end of our visit. The intensity of its yellow feathers rivals the color of the Yellow Warbler but the black streaks on its breast make it stand out even more and the black mask on its face lends an air of mystery, reminiscent of the mask of Zorro.
