Howdy-- I could use some help with historical bird records. Below is a list of what I am thinking are dates of the first published Ohio appearances of certain bird species that took place in central counties in Ohio (Franklin County and the six surrounding ones). They are the earliest Ohio records I have found for these species...oddly enough. I have some more earliest records, but these puzzle me. Unless someone can give me published earlier records of these species I am going to assume that the central Ohio records below are Ohio's first recorded. Seems to me there are a *lot* of waterbirds in a rather dry portion of the state for one thing!
