Prothonotary Warbler

May 23, 2016

This is the bird that got me hooked. When I was 12 years old my aunt and uncle invited me to go birding with them at Point Pelee. I had the time of my life and saw somewhere around 100 birds for the weekend. But the highlight was seeing a Prothonotary Warbler with a perfect reflection in the water it was perched above. I will never forget that image. 

So every year around the 5th of May I go to Baldwin Park in southern Ingham County to see the Prothonotary Warblers that nest along the Grand River. As usual I was rewarded with some great looks at one of Mid Michigan's most beautiful birds.
