Great day today!
The Findlay Long-tailed Jaeger actually stayed around long enough for a blue sky day. Great flyby views given to all...even a few from Michigan made it down. Also it parked itself in the water almost next to the boat ramp...so almost everyone got super views of it.
Springville Marsh was close by so I decided to walk around the boardwalk.. A bit slow...but I got there late. Best bird there were some vocalizing Virginia Rails. Couldn't hear much else due to increasing winds.
Lawrence Woods...was Lawrence Woods. :-D Windy conditions made birding by ear next to impossible but a few Warblers came out to say hi. Flycatcher's were still vocal...and close.
Lists below. I added two pictures of the Jaeger to my Findlay list, but I do not know why it is not showing up on the list that I added media in my comments.
Happy birding and God bless!
