More photos from Ohio

This is a White-eyed Vireo, partly named for its amazing whitish iris. I had the best unobstructed view of this bird on the Magee Marsh boardwalk yesterday afternoon — it sat only about 7 feet away, just above eye level. Unfortunately my photo caught a bit of sun flare below the bird, but it’s still amazing! When we were down in Savannah, Georgia a few weeks ago we got to see a White-eyed Vireo singing its beautiful song on Skidaway Island. This one wasn’t singing, but the view made up for that.

We were privileged to find this Eastern Screech-owl roosting on a branch outside his/her nest box late yesterday afternoon. It’s not often I get such a good view of an entire owl, so it was very special.

I wish you could all experience what we’re seeing here in Ohio this week. The birds and people are wonderful, and we’re learning so much from the speakers and field trips — I can’t wait to share more with you after we get home.
