Subject: [Ohio-birds] OlentangyCorridor,Worthington-Powell,9-05:migrants
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
