Friday's Birds at home and Northern Ohio

Started birding in the yard just after sunrise. Was able to get decent photos of White-throated Sparrow, Brown Thrasher and White-breasted Nuthatch.

  Mid- morning headed to Magee Marsh and took the following photos.

White-eyed Vireo

Blue-headed Vireo

Carolina Wren

Swamp Sparrow

Hermit Thrush

Gray Catbird


Ruby-crowned Kinglet

He makes the catch

Black and White Warbler

American Kestrel

Red-headed Woodpecker

Bonaparte's Gulls

Trumpeter Swan

Blue-winged Teal

Back at home

  A popular internet phenomenon is a 'photobomb',  defined in the urban dictionary as "An otherwise normal photo that has been ruined or spoiled by someone who was not supposed to be in the photograph"   Here is my backyard bird version of it.

White-throated Sparrow can ruin my photos any day.


  1. Great series, Mark! I must've just missed you as I was there earlier in the morning. Love the photobomb.

  2. Thanks, I didn't get out there until 10:30. I didn't even see that W-T sparrow zip by until I previewed the shot.
