Ohio & Michigan 13/5/17

Magee Marsh, Pearson Metropark & Maumee State Park
Arriving into Magee Marsh the car park trees were seemingly alive with birds, but unfortunately entering the boardwalk it all appeared rather quiet, and it proved to be a quieter day then yesterday in terms of migrants. Passerine migrants on the increase were Least Flycatchers and Common Yellowthroats. Given the calm and clear conditions Blue Jays were once again on the move, and a couple of hundred were noted before entering the boardwalk.

We soon left for Pearson Metropark but this appeared quiet, and despite perseverance I couldn't persuade any Rails or Crakes to emerge from the reeds. So it was then back to Maumee State Park which produced a few more Warblers, more Screech Owls but more impressively was a Racoon and three species of Snakes.

Leaving early in the morning so keeping this brief, but highlighted species seen today are below. Photos from yesterday have now been added so keep see the previous post.
