I had to stay home during the early morning hours today, so I did not get to the woods to hear the early morning singers, but that was OK because I was planning to check some spots around Carroll for Dragonflies and Damselflies in the afternoon. Even though my main goal was Odonata, I ended up with 71 species of birds, which was pretty good for giving it my divided attention at best. Best bird of the day was 2 Vesper Sparrows along Mark Rd, where we have had them for the past 1 1/2 years (Since the 2016 Carroll Survey). I didn’t notice a Grackle today, which was odd.
Fargo Rd. is still pretty good as they have not cut the fields, as was the case for the past 2 years, but I did not hear any Dickcissels this afternoon. Could be they are well into nesting mode now. Still a lot of Henslow’s, Grasshopper, and Savannah singing. Bobolinks are testing their wings and will be slowly disappearing before you know it.
In the meantime, it’ll be a few weeks of Odes before trying to track down shorebirds and trying to track down new species in Tuscarawas Co. Maybe an Atwood Lake Magnificent Frigatebird? We can dream...
