Kirtland's Warbler, Columbus Ohio
We've been quite lucky to host in Columbus an extremely rare bird- a male Kirtland's Warbler. Listed as Endangered by the Federal Government, this is the rarest of the rare amongst wood warblers in the United States. First spotted this past Wednesday, I believe, it was still hanging out in an elm tree at 960 Kinnear Rd in front of a building owned by Ohio State. I went with my neighbor Rick to see and photograph it this afternoon- it was still there at 2:00 p.m. What a great bird!
