Subject: [Ohio-birds] LaDue Reservoir Auburn Rd Geauga Co. 8/10
I stopped by LaDue Reservoir at the Auburn Rd pull-off this morning. There
were loads of shorebirds on the flats west of the bridge. The IDs I was
certain of were:

Least sandpiper (many)
Semipalmated sandpiper (a few)
Lesser yellowlegs (many)
Solitary sandpiper (at least 2)
Pectoral sandpiper (at least 2)
Semipalmated plover (at least 2)
Killdeer (lots)

There also were a couple of great blue herons, wood ducks, mallards, a
green heron, tree swallows, barn swallows, and a single ring-billed gull.
Also, minutes after I got there an osprey flew in carrying breakfast. It
dined in the tall, dead tree (ash maybe?) at the far western end of the


Ohio-birds mailing list, a service of the Ohio Ornithological Society.
