A good day for shorebirds in the wetlands. Most interesting bird behavior noted today was the Acadian Flycatchers landing in dirt patches and spreading wings and tail feathers soaking up the sunshine; other birds seen are listed below. > >Mallard >American Black Duck >Woodduck >Great Blue Heron >Green Heron >Great Egret >Glossy Ibis >Greater Yellow Legs >Lesser Yellow Legs >Short Billed Dowitcher >Solitary Sandpiper >Silt Sandpiper >Pectorial Sandpiper >Killdeer >Semipalmated Sandpiper >Least Sandpiper >Turkey Vulture >Red tailed Hawk >Cedar Waxwing >European Starling >Eastern Kingbird >Eastern Phoebe >Belted Kingfisher >Mourning Dove >Barn Swallow >Northern Rough-winged Swallow >American Crow > >Have a great Day Birding >Bob and Annie Bebirding >Pataskala OH > >______________________________________________________________________ > >Ohio-birds mailing list, a service of the Ohio Ornithological Society. >Please consider joining our Society, at www.ohiobirds.org/site/membership.php. >Our thanks to Miami University for hosting this mailing list. > > >You can join or leave the list, or change your options, at: >listserv.miamioh.edu/scripts/wa.exe?LIST=OHIO-BIRDS >Send questions or comments about the list to: <listowner...>
