Subject: [Ohio-birds] wading bird ID help needed Baldwin Lake, Berea
Two days in a row now a wading bird has been perched on a fallen tree on
the northern end/east side of Baldwin Lake. Only had mini-bins and no
camera. Bird was half to maybe 2/3 the size of a Great Blue Heron; body
solid grayish brown with golden throat and chest; yellow bill (don't
believe it was curved and not noticeably long); dark legs (bluish?).
Bird kept neck in an S shape most of the time. The fallen tree on the
east shore of Baldwin Lake can be seen by standing near the large red
and white "STOP--Danger--Dam ahead" sign facing the lake (brown on the
other side). Sign is just about between the two sets of
garbage/recycling containers in the parking areas along Valley Parkway
and is a few hundred yards south of N. Quarry Ln. I think this bird
will return to the fallen tree--seems to be a favorite spot for herons
and egrets (Great Egret also seen today, same area).
