I checked several areas around this reservoir northwest of Columbus, and didn't find too much migrant movement. I stopped at Pylon Point at the north end, around the Home Road bridge in the middle, and at the dam at the south end, along with a side trip to Traphagen Preserve. Notables included:

Redheads - a modest flock of 30 was above the dam
Green-winged teal - 2 of them were feeding off Pylon Point (Area P)
Turkey Vultures - small #s everywhere, with 16 at the dam the high number
Red-shouldered hawk - 1 was calling in Traphagen, an unusual location for them
Amer.Kestrel - 1 was in a field along Home Rd east of the reservoir
Gulls - oddly, not a single one of any species was on the reservoir
Pileated Woodpecker - 1 was calling in Traphagen woods
E.Bluebirds - pairs were at many locations along the reservoir
Cedar Waxwings - a small flock of 8 was perched in shrubs at Area L below the Home Road bridge
Tree Sparrows - 4 were still around Pylon Point
Swamp Sparrow - 1 was in the marsh at Pylon Point
Blackbirds - small #s of Red-wings and grackles were everywhere
