May 2011

The Wood National Cemetery was established in 1871 to inter the remains of the Civil War soldiers and other soldiers under the care in the VA Medical Center.

Warbler birds, like this Magnolia Warbler, pass through the Milwaukee, WI area for 2 to 7 days each Spring. They are difficult to photograph, because of their flittering flight and small size.

Each Spring Warbler birds migrate north as a change of the seasons, many pass through the Wehr Nature Center, as it is a favorite site for Warblers. Most of the time the migration is of small groups of Warbler types at various times. This year, 2011, extraordinary larger groupings came through for almost an entire week’s time. The Magnolia Warble, seen above, is typical of the many colorful Warblers that were seen and photographed.

 Since the photos are panoramic photos, you will not be able to see a good instance of a Warbler, because of their flittering flight and smallness of size. But trust me, the Warbler birds were there at the time of the photos. Links will be added later that will show the Warbler photos. It is intended by the panoramic photos to show the Warbler bird watching experience, and the site locations where they were found. Other sites were also found, but not as extraordinary as these shown.

I may add, this is my first time to photograph more than one Warble type in a short time. Cool and sunny days with little wind also helped.
