Local Birds Of Spring, A Photo Essay

Spring has returned, and so have the birds (and the birds that didn’t leave are happier). Local photographer Anna Fonner of Ark Photography has been busy snapping their photos all over Wheeling. Check out her beautiful results below and then watch for these birds in a tree near you. Sometimes birds are more easily heard than seen, so we’ve added a link to their typical songs below each image with thanks to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
