Magee Marsh along Lake Erie was a refuge for dozens of Palm Warblers on a windy, overcast spring day.
I realize it’s common for male and female birds of the same species often have different colors, but Ring-necked Pheasants take this to an extreme. A transplant from Asia, the males have an amazing diversity of colors. I think the understated beauty of the hens is highly underrated. Photos taken in April of 2017.
On a blustery winter day, a little reminder of spring.
