The Biggest Week in American Birding Festival in NW Ohio I decided to make a run down to Magee Marsh and the Boardwalk. Despite cool, breezy temps and slight overcast the place was hopping with birds and people. This Ruby-crowned Kinglet was singing and foraging near a (hopefully) receptive female.
I'll be in Miami this week, but hope to get back here next week when the next wave of warblers come in!

I rode the dike between Vermet and Long Pond Units toward the Middle Causeway and met up with Todd Palgut. We rode together toward the Banana Unit where we ran into Dan Fox, and another pair of Horned Grebes in Cell 4.

I had my Nikon D7100, 300/2.8 VRII + 1.7TCII set up on the Jobu Jr. Gimbal Head and Tripod in the sunroom here at Brownton Abbey, and Sam wanted to take some pictures. So, I let him loose. 750 photos later he had some impressive images. Most were blurry - he hasn't learned what the term focus means, but he was able to track some birds and even get some enviable photos. So, this Guest Blog is dedicated to Master Sam Geiger:

This kid may have a future. Well done, Sam!
