Subject: [Ohio-birds] Big Island (Marion county) Shorebirds
LOTS of shorebirds at Big Island (Marion County) I am in the middle of a
project at home, but Cam Lee and Ron Sempier report:

"...there are hundreds of shorebirds at big island. The east side near the
back is the best area. Best birds of the day were Baird's and Western
Sandpipers and a Wilson's phalarope." (Texts condensed for simplicity.)

The pond is the East pond on LaRue Prospect. It has been drained to
encourage vegetation...and will not be filled in time for Teal
looks like we might have some good shorebird activity.

Happy birding and God bless!
