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.
