I birded at Conneaut harbor from about 7:15 to noon today. When I arrived, both gates were open. They have placed a cabin-like building next to the new toll gate, so that may be in operation soon. It was pretty slow at the spit this morning; migrant shorebirds were few, with 3 sanderlings, 9 least sandpipers, and 9 semipalmated sandpipers. Other birds were the usual suspects: double-crested cormorants, 45 turkey vultures, bald eagles, spotted sandpiper, great black-backed gull, 6 Caspian terns (including my first juv.), belted kingfisher, warbling vireo, purple martin, and bank swallows.
