Baltimore Orioles, Yellow Warblers, and Red Winged Blackbirds Abundant in Mentor, Ohio

We made the rounds of the best birding places in Mentor Ohio on Sunday. The weather was sunny and slightly cool, but the birds were very active. At Mentor Headlands State Park on the dunes trail, we saw many Yellow Warblers and one Black-Throated Green Warbler. All of the warblers were very active, stopping only for seconds, barely enough time to get the camera to focus. I managed to get one photo of the Yellow Warbler as it sang. At the Mentor Marsh Wake Robin Trail, the Red-Winged Blackbirds were more than happy to pose. And at Veterans Park, one gorgeous Baltimore Oriole stopped to preen while others flew by. Here are a few photos.
