Magee Marsh: Non-Warbler Migrants

Magee Marsh attracts more than just warblers -- this post will document the varied assortment of kinglets, thrushes, sparrows, vireos, flycatchers, etc that pass through this fabled hotspot.

Northern Flicker
Always an attractive woodpecker to observe.

Common Nighthawk
The second goatsucker species seen at the venue.

This cryptic goatsucker gave unparalleled views at Magee Marsh on the 16th. Indistinctly plumed and perched in the shade with streaks of sunlight, this legendary nocturnal nightjar was a challenging subject that defied attempts at satisfactory exposure.


Scarlet Tanager
A velvety flame of red and black -- this South American cardinal sets the trees ablaze.

Blue-headed Vireo

Yellow-throated Vireo


Hermit Thrush

This icterid is justifiably despised for its despicable habit of brood-parasitizing other (generally more desirable) species' nests.
