Subject: [Ohio-birds] herons, bittern, rails - Beaver Pond, Ira Rd, CVNP
a big day (actually 15 minutes) at this Summit County spot.
after a slow hour along the towpath, within a few minutes and
feet of each other, all on the west side of the towpath, along the canal,
around 10:15 am saw:

- immature Virginia rail (immed north of Beaver Pond)
- green heron (in Beaver Pond)
- immature sora (immed south of Beaver Pond)
- least bittern (in a bush 3 ft above the sora) - *life bird*
- great blue heron (a bit south of that).

July ended up a big month!
