OH - Cape Mays at Magee 05/05

On my recent (very short) trip to Ohio and Michigan I had more good fortune with Cape May Warblers at a major migration stop-over. Unlike these birds at Cape May, NJ, the birds at Magee Marsh were all in breeding condition and a treat to behold. I had my best views in the parking lot where I escaped the crowds and found a few of my own birds. It was my first afternoon in Ohio and I thought "Mmmm, I'll just go check the boardwalk at Magee before checking into the hotel". Four hours later I was still there having notched up almost twenty species of warbler on what was described as a "slow afternoon" by the locals (!). Yikes - I can't help but wonder what it's like when it's busy!!
