I squeezed in trips to the Worthington Olentangy Parkland and Highbanks River Bluffs access around my work hours today, and found some landbird migrants in both sites. Neither site had a big fallout, but both had small #s of migrants, including:
Raptors - Turkey Vultures at both sites, but River Bluffs also had Osprey, Red-shouldered, and Red-tailed hawks Hummers,Swifts - 1-2 Rubythroats at both spots, while River Bluffs had a flock of 15-20 Chimney Swifts circling Flycatchers - multiple Pewees at both sites, while Worthington also had a Great Crested Vireos - little other than a single Red-eyed Wrens,Gnatcatcher - lots of House Wrens at both sites; also a Gnatcatcher at Worthington CedarWaxwings - flocks of 10-15 at both sites, feeding on berries Thrushes - family groups of Bluebirds at both sites; River Bluffs also had 5-6 Swainson's Thrushes in the riparian forest Warblers - Tennessees at both sites, with 4 at River Bluffs. Also had Nashville, Black&White, Magnolias, CapeMay, Blackpoll, Bay-breasted, Redstarts, Ovenbird, and N.Waterthrush Buntings,Grosbeaks - no grosbeaks at either site, but 1-2 Indigo Buntings at River Bluff
