Subject: [Ohio-birds] Juncos R smart
Hi,

We went back to Little Mountain to cover some areas to the south of where
we were Wednesday. Our procedure is to find a likely spot to set up the 6m
mist net, then set the decoy and speaker close to the middle of the net.
We then retreat 10 to15 m. We play a recording to attract male territorial
Juncos to the decoy.

It is our experience that if we are in a good spot it takes less than 5
minutes before we have a male or multiple males fussing in the area they
eventually get worked up enough to fly at the decoy and get caught so we
can band them.

Or first location was per the normal routine. We had a response within 3
minutes and then an unbanded bird in the net.

Extracting the bird from the net Holdon Biologist Mike Watson lost his
purchase on the little bird and it escaped.

We tired again but now even though we had 2 birds in the vicinity and
countersinging, none would fly at the decoy. After about 15 minutes we
decided to move about 50m south and see if we could attract different
birds.

This set up attracted a bird from the north, which may have been the same
one who got away earlier. After checking out the decoy he continued to
countersing but went to the ground and began foraging and generally acting
unconcerned. We gave up and moved ~150m North. Got a little
countersinging but no one came to the area other than for a quick looky loo.

We moved North again. Almost to the area we had covered Wednesday. Again
we quickly attracted a bird but he was not agitated and after a bit of
countersinging and looking at the decoy went to the ground and began to
forage. We gave up.

Since we had good success in the first location we went back there as it
was now 2 hours later. We attracted a bird who was countersinging the
Nashville Warbler like song. This song is something I have documented
previously in our local Juncos and got video of this back in 2016. Again
the bird went to the ground and began foraging. As an experiment I got
myself positioned so the bird was between the net and me. Once I got to
flush distance the bird adeptly flew up and outside and around the support
pole of the net. Indicating he knew exactly where the net was located.

While we had good success earlier in the week.it would seem the Juncos on
Little Mountain are onto our tactics. Today's score Juncos - 4, Scientists
- 0.

Also of note when we got back to the cars we heard another Junco doing the
Nashville Warbler like song. These locations are deep in the woods and well
away from any Chipping Sparrows.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] More Juncos, Blue-headed Vireo on nest
Hi,

We worked the East Branch of the Chagrin River doing the Junco Residency
Study. Holden biologist Mike Watson, had gone to a location upstream
yesterday afternoon and banded 2 new birds and one recapture from last
year. (I had work meetings)

Today we were farther downstream. On the east side we had one bird hit the
net repeatedly but never get caught. He seemed to figure it out after
third bounce out and would not go for the decoy. We had two other birds who
seemed to be coming from across the river.

First we set up right next to the river and a bird came but just
countersang. We crossed the river and set up on the west bank. Within 5
minutes we had a capture of an unbanded bird. The river seems to be a
boundary.

In 2 days of field work we have banded 7 new birds and had 2 recaptures.
Last year we got 10 birds all season. We did get started much later last
year as it was our first year. More banded birds means a bigger sample and
better chance of finding them if they stick around in the non breeding
season.

Additionally while working one location on the east side of the river I
heard a Blue-headed Vireo. I was able to get on it with my binocular as it
moved along a branch and then into a nest! First time in 11 years of doing
the Holden BBS that we have confirmed this species.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Annual Berlin Lake Area Osprey Nest Count
This morning, Thursday, from about 8:30AM to about 12 noon, my wife Denise and I did our annual check on this years active Osprey nests and also the abundance of Cliff Swallows in and centered around the Berlin Lake Area. Berlin Lake stretches thru three counties in northeastern Ohio, the western edge of Mahoning, the southeastern corner of Portage, and the northeastern corner of Stark, with its source, The Mahoning River extending to its headwaters in Columbiana County. Twenty-six nest sites were found, with the largest concentration, 10, near the town of Deerfield. Of the nests, 16 are on cell towers, 4 on transmission towers, 4 on wooden utility poles, and 2 on wooden hacking structures, all provided by man. Amazing is the fact that during The Ohio Breeding Bird Atlas of 1982 thru 1987, there were no Osprey nests recorded in Ohio. A brief description of Berlin Lake taken from US Army Corps Of Engineers data is, in summer the length of the lake at normal pool is 18.6 miles long, with 70 miles of shoreline, and a maximum depth of 76 feet at the dam. To anyone wishing to observe an Osprey nest up close and personal, go to the southeast corner of SR225 and Greenbower Road, a short distance north of the city of Alliance. The nest is about twenty-five above the edge of the road. Look for the House Sparrows residing in the lower part of the nest. A couple of interesting finds this morning were, the Bald Eagle pair with two eaglets, once again at the Osprey nest on a cell tower on German Church Road just west of SR225, that they took over a year ago, and a nest on a light pole above the ball field backstop, looking down at home plate, at Mile Branch Grange, south of the town of Sebring. The Berlin Lake Osprey count by the end of the summer could be, with an average of two youngsters per nest, an amazing total of one hundred and four. Also, as for the local Cliff Swallow population, it seems to be booming. Easiest location to view the swallows is the US224 Causeway Bridge. We found nesting at eight locations and The Berlin Dam. On the inlet structure above the dam, were approximately 175 nests being constructed and already occupied, attached to and around the concrete face. For e-birders, the inlet structure and the US224 Bridge are both in Mahoning County. The eastern portion of the concrete dam is in Mahoning County, while part of the western portion is in Portage County. Berlin Lake spillway discharges into the Mahoning River hemlock laden rocky gorge, also in Mahoning County. Of interest is the fact that all the parking areas at the dam are in Portage County. What a pleasurable three and a half hour morning adventure close to home.

Leroy Yoder reported the White-winged Dove was heard at the original location around 9:30 but then after an hour of waiting with no more sign they went searching for Dickcissels in the area and ended up relocating the dove mile north at the intersection of T.R. 151 & T.R. 153 in some pine trees, so apparently it is moving around some. The suggestion would be to start looking at the original location at 2055 Township Road 151 Baltic then go from there. Leroy did report a Dickcissel was singing at the above intersection.

Good luck,

A White-winged Dove was seen all day yesterday at the Ivan Barkman residence at 2055 TR 151 Baltic, approx. 4 miles south of Charm. It visited a feeder several times and seemed to hang around in some trees in the valley along the driveway as well as some pine trees behind the home. Because of the history of White-winged Doves not staying around long it was suggested by the homeowners not to post it unless it shows up again today which it did after lunch so hopefully it will stay long enough for people to get to see it. Birders are welcome.

Bird on!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Junco residency year two start
Hi,

We began year two of our breeding Dark-eyed Junco, residency study this
morning on the Holden Arboretum Little Mountain property. The basic
outline of the project involves color banding Dark-eyed Juncos during the
breeding season and then looking for them in the non breeding/winter
months, to establish if the breeding population is resident or migratory.
Last year we banded 10 individuals. Our color banding was location based
and the same for all birds in that location. Over the non breeding season
we 100% of the banded birds we found were in nearly the same location as
banded.

We began today because field observation indicates winter migrants have
vacated and the Juncos now in the area are engaged in breeding behavior.

This morning we banded 4 individuals. One was a repeat from last year and
3 new birds. Since have some evidence of territorial fidelity, we began
banding so we can identify individual birds and perhaps understand
territories and other behaviors.

As the season progresses we hope to also band females and fledglings. We
do not want to visit nest locations and in doing so possibly subject them
to predation. That said any knowledgeable suggestions about how to do this
would be appreciated.

Haans

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Lawrence Woods May "wrap up"
Greetings!

Although the month is not over, the growing amount of leaves on the trees
is making birding difficult unless you are birding by ear. 😁. My May count
for both boardwalk and prairie combined was 105. I missed only a couple
reported birds. The only bird conspicuous in is absence is Prothonotary
Warbler...usually a pair will nest in he pond, but not this year.

The prarie is almost as lively in birds as the boardwalk.
This has been the best year for Chats that I have ever had. 4-8 daily.

Bobolinks are present, but hiding in the West part of the prairie.

Song, Field, Henslow, Grasshopper, Savannah, and Chipping Sparrows can be
heard all around the parking lot and drive. Dickcissels are being heard
right as you enter the property on 190. Vesper Sparrows we're also
reported around the same area, but I haven't heard them.

If you come, CR 190 is closed for bridge repair at SR 31, Use CR 200 as
alternate.

Happy birding and God bless,

Steve J.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] FW: White-winged Dove - Holmes Co.
Leroy Yoder reported the White-winged Dove was heard at the original location around 9:30 but then after an hour of waiting with no more sign they went searching for Dickcissels in the area and ended up relocating the dove mile north at the intersection of T.R. 151 & T.R. 153 in some pine trees, so apparently it is moving around some. The suggestion would be to start looking at the original location at 2055 Township Road 151 Baltic then go from there. Leroy did report a Dickcissel was singing at the above intersection.

Good luck,
Eli

Subject: White-winged Dove - Holmes Co.

A White-winged Dove was seen all day yesterday at the Ivan Barkman residence at 2055 TR 151 Baltic, approx. 4 miles south of Charm. It visited a feeder several times and seemed to hang around in some trees in the valley along the driveway as well as some pine trees behind the home. Because of the history of White-winged Doves not staying around long it was suggested by the homeowners not to post it unless it shows up again today which it did after lunch so hopefully it will stay long enough for people to get to see it. Birders are welcome.

Bird on!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Magee yesterday
Quite cool and overcast in the AM with a cold wind off the lake at Magee. Felt more like a fall day. Had partly sunny skies later which then gave way to more rain late afternoon.

I was disappointed that the road to Metzger Marsh was closed, I presume due to flooding. I also checked out Howard marsh but the water seemed high there too but picked up some Dunlin, a couple semi-palms and some Caspian Terns there. Heard a Greater YL.

Not big numbers but lots of bird activity & great photo opps on the Boardwalk. 16 Warbler species incl lovely Bay-breasted males and Canada’s. Many mixed flocks feeding in near proximity. I did not hear of any Connecticuts being seen.

Saw an interesting interaction between a Prothonotary Warbler and a Tree Swallow over a small nest hole. The warbler was acting somewhat proprietary. When the tree swallow, perched on the nest hole and was inspecting it, the warbler chipped loudly at it and flew at it several times which the tree swallow largely ignored. After poking its head in and out of the hole a couple times, the swallow flew off and the Prothonotary seemed to relax. I didn’t know whether the Prothonotary had already started building a nest there or what exactly was going on but it was kind of cool to watch.

Other highlights for me were calling/seen Least, Yellow-bellied & Willow flycatchers. There were also a few Philadelphia Vireos showing well. Late in the day I finally located a female Mourning Warbler that had been seen earlier, getting brief glimpses in the dark undergrowth but the gray hood and broken eye ring were seen well.

For gen info, the road to the Boardwalk will be closed June 1 to replace 2 bridges. I think the sign said it would be closed for a couple months.

Warblers:
Yellow
Com YT
Prothonotary
Bay-breasted
Blackpoll
B&w
Canada
Mag
Am Redstart
N Waterthrush
Mourning (f)
Blk-thr blue (f)

Sorry I didn't get this out sooner.  Two Ruddy Turnstones at Seneca Lake in Guernsey County.  They where on the small island that can be seen from the dam or marina campground. 

Keep an eye on the rocky end if anyone tries to find them.  They would hide where they cant be seen, then come out searching for food, and hide again.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Hoover Nature Preserve, Delaware County
Today I monitored parts of Area N and along Little Walnut Creek. Sloshing through the back areas of Area N made the journey by the horses in the Preakness Stakes Saturday look easy. The water hides downed trees and the mud seemed to be trying to suck off my boots. But the effort was rewarded as I located 14 Prothonotary Warbler nest sites. The Prothonotaries are getting down to serious business as I observed females bringing nest materials to their nest box or natural cavity. I also noted what appeared to be males bringing food to the nest box and poking his head in and quickly leave. My assumption is that the female was inside. Many females should be laying their eggs, one a day, until the clutch is complete. Early arrivals may have begun incubation already. Future observations should provide a clearer picture. Later I checked some of the habitat along Little Walnut Creek. I located an additional 6 males there.
Some other species observed in the back reaches of Area n included Northern Parulas, Yellow-throated Warblers, Acadian Flycatchers, Spotted Sandpiper, a Barred Owl and a Hooded Merganser hen.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Dutch Fork (Dawes Arb), OSU Airport
I explored a couple new areas for me today. Despite a late start, I had a few good birds.

Willow FCs were singing and one perched up for a great view. Field Sparrows also singing. Just one Baltimore Oriole. Single Great Blue & Green Herons. A Brown Thrasher flew across the road just before the turn into the park. N Mockingbird. Wood Thrush singing. Purple Martins at the gourd house.

Only warblers were Yellow, Com YT and a skulky waterthrush that I believe was a Northern—very yellow with strong streaking, tail bobbing up & down. It stayed low except to perch up briefly on a low branch. Near the wooded small stream at the back of the park. Only uttered one chip note before vanishing.

Several birders were searching w/o success for the W Kingbird at the OSU Airport/livestock area. No one I spoke to reported it had been seen today. Only saw a couple E Kingbirds with which the Western had reportedly been associating. Consolation prizes were Bobolink, Dickcissel and Upland Sandpiper. The male Bobolink sang as it flew for some distance to land on the airport fence by the road where it perched and continued to sing and preen for several minutes. Lovely views. A couple E Bluebirds.

Saw & heard Grasshopper and Savannah Sparrows. I also saw a Great Egret on a pond on the airport property.

Hi All,

The Red-necked Phalarope was re-found today and was actively feeding at the pond on King Road in Yellow Springs.

The King Rail, reported from the same pond, was not seen this morning as of 11:30 a.m. when I left. Others may have found it after that time.

Best,

Casey Tucker

Subject: [Ohio-birds] 3-Creeks,5-19: raptors, migrants
Before the storms swept through, I birded several areas in this sprawling
south Columbus park. It can be though of as a series of woods along the
three creeks that joins together, and I stopped at woodlands near Cruiser
park, the Confluence area, Heron Pond, and the Oxbow area. Migrating
thrushes, vireos, and flycatchers were common, warblers less so, with the
highlights being:

Raptors - several Cooper's Hawks were in different locations, most
display-flying. An immature Bald Eagle was perched along Blacklick Creek
north of Cruiser Park, and the Osprey are still using the nest on the old
powerline brace along the Alum Creek bike path north of Watson Rd (Oxbow)

Cuckoos - only 1 Yellow-billed, near Oxbow
Hummingbirds - singles at many different locations

Flycatchers - loads of Pewees and Great Crested at all sites, and Acadians
were in most of the forest blocks. Willow Flycatchers were at most open
areas, and an Alder was calling at th eastern edge of the Confluence area
along the Blacklick bikepath

Vireos - Red-eyed were the most abundant migrant of the morning, often in
double digits at single sites. Also had numerous Warblings, 2-3
Yellow-throated, and 1 Philly Vireo (north of Cruiser Pond)

Thrushes - Swainsons were in all the forest bloacks, with the most (6+)
being in Confluence (the largest block). Wood Thrushes were also widpspread

Mimids - Gray Catbirds were almost as common as Red-eyed Vireos. Also had
Brown Thrashers in 4 different locations.

Warblers - Redstarts were common, with Yellows a distant second. Also had
Parulas, Tennessee (1), Yellow-throated, Magnolia, Chestnut-sided,
Black-thr.Green, Black&White, Blackburnian, Bay-breasted, Ovenbirds,
Canadas (3 different locations), Mourning, CommonYellowthroat

Tanagers - only had a few singing Scarlets (at Confluence and Oxbow)

Grosbeaks,Buntings - Rose-br.Grosbeaks were singing north of Cruiser Pond,
at Confluence, and at Heron Pond; Indigo Buntings were widespread and
numerous

Orioles - Baltimores were widespread, but also had 4-5 Orchards at many
different locations

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Athens County, SE Ohio: Lake Snowden - 57 species
I spent about 3 hours this morning around the Lake Snowden dam and north, and found a great variety of birdlife.

At the dam, the Grasshopper Sparrow found previously by Phil Cantino gave its presence away by its trill song. Eastern Meadowlark and Blue Grosbeak were singing there as well, while Purple Martins, Barn Swallows, and Northern Rough-winged Swallows were cruising around. A sole Chimney Swift was carefully, wings held up, plunging its belly into the lake; a way to take a bath for this highly aerial species.

On the hilly area in the woods and shrub land to the north of the dam were Indigo Bunting, Yellow-breasted Chat, Common Yellowthroat, and Blue-winged Warbler, all singing at some point. Other notables included a pair of Eastern Kingbirds, and singing Warbling Vireo and Great Crested Flycatcher.

Attached below is the full eBird list.

Best birding--

A singing Connecticut Warbler was observed at Hills and Dales Metropark
between 8 and 9 a.m. this morning (Saturday, May 19th).

The bird was just northwest of the Paw Paw Shelter, near South Patterson

Subject: [Ohio-birds] A Trifecta Day Adams, Franklin, Greene Counties plus a Lawrence Woods (Hardin Co) "wrap up"
Greetings!

Wow what a loooong day. I took off from work last night, and headed
straight Tranquility Nature Area over In Adams County to get a lifer
Chuck-will's Widow...and I got there JUST in time to get the final 5.30am
performance. I could never get a eye on one, but the whole valley was
woken up by Whips and Chucks...and about 20 other morning performers. My
thanks to all the people who emailed me about where to find a Chuck-will's
Widow. I almost wish I lived in Adams County...I wouldn't need an alarm
clock. :-D

Since that was so quick, I decided to also get the Western Kingbird (a
state lifer) over at the OSU Ag center over on Sawmill Rd in Columbus...On
the way over I realized that the King Rail and Red-necked Phalarope (Year
bird) were just a couple of counties away. So I decided to do a bird
trifecta: Lifer, state, year.

I got crazy views of the King Rail while I was searching for the
Phalarope....I've never actually seen a King Rail just out feeding in the
open...so I had to get some footage.:

https://youtu.be/qmHvcCPBjA8

That video was taken on a little Nikon P900 point and shoot....if you don't
want to go all DSLR...look into it. ;-)

EVENTUALLY, I am going to get my Spring '18 pictures put up on my
webpage...there is just too many great birds out there to focus on all the
photos. :-D

A little wrap up for Lawrence Woods. Chats are everywhere in the Prairie
I can hear them on the boardwalk in three different places. A lot of
Warblers made their presence know this year...including Waterthrushes, as
well as a Mourning, and Connecticut Warblers. I'm still getting Lincoln
Sparrows around the front of the boardwalk. The only thing that I haven't
seen this year is a Prothonotary Warbler...one was seen earlier by someone
else, but it hasn't stuck around. Bobolinks are starting to sing out in
the prairie. Also had some Henslows in the prairie.

Well...time to get some sleep...all the coffee and tea is wearing off. :-D

Happy birding and God bless,

Steve J

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Wilson's Phalarope (Lake County) 5/18, and other rarities around the state
Good evening,

While birding Mentor Marsh Wake Robin boardwalk (Lake County) today with
Chia and Jerry, we had a very slender and light-colored shorebird fly over
going east. Jerry and I watched it continue flying east towards Corduroy
Road but lost it once it was below the tree line. We were unsure of the
identification, but Jerry suggested a Wilson's Phalarope and it seemed
reasonable. Sure enough, by luck (and Chia's good eyes), we re-found the
bird looking west into the marsh about 50-100 yards (the bird was moving
around a lot, foraging) while standing on the side of Corduroy Road. After
I personally struck out on this species two trips in a row in NW Ohio
recently, I was very pleased to get this bird as a world life bird in my
home county. This species was also Ray Hannikman's first for the Headlands
area, giving him 316 species total he has recorded over the years in
Mentor. Unfortunately, once seven of us had observed the bird, it flew much
further west into the marsh and as far as I know, it was not seen again.
Also, 14 species of warblers were observed in a very small area just at the
top of the hill that leads down to the Wake Robin boardwalk. A single Least
Bittern was observed from Corduroy Rd, as well as one Short-billed
Dowitcher.

Elsewhere in the state, Irina Shulgina found a Western Kingbird in Franklin
County (OSU livestock facilities) on the 17th, and it continued throughout
the 18th. Upland Sandpipers are also at this location.

The King Rail (originally reported by Rick Luehrs to the listserv) was
still observed in Greene County on the 18th at the Glass Farm in Yellow
Springs, as well as a bonus Red-necked Phalarope that dropped into the same
wetland yesterday (also still seen the 18th).

The Black-bellied Whistling-Duck originally found by Brian Wulker at
Fernald Nature Preserve in Hamilton County on April 17th was still observed
yesterday on May 17th.

The Red Crossbills continue to be seen around the Oak Openings Lodge in
Lucas County, even though Chia and I, unfortunately, struck out on the
17th.

Lastly, originally one Common Raven was observed at Poland Township Park in
Mahoning County by John Petruzzi on the 16th. Two birds were observed,
first by Denise Lane, then by Bob too, not long after the initial sighting
of the single bird by. This is just a mile and a half from the PA border,
as Bob describes in his eBird checklist.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] An Ohio Big Day Story (very long); a tale of 24 good hours on 5/14/18 by Kent Miller
I shared this post on Facebook but I know a number oflistserv folks that can’t see it there want to read about it so I’ll share ithere as well.  I’ve been doing a May bigday with friends the last couple years and we took our third stab at it on5/14/18 and I’d like to share the tale with you. I’m sure I’ll get long-windedas I always do when I’ve a good story to tell so if it’s too long for you skipit or pick out the parts you’re interested in: the birds, the birders, or thestrategy and elements that make up a good Big Day. I hope you enjoy the reading1% as much as I’ll enjoy the writing.I joined fellow Bobolinkers Tim Hochstetler, James E Yoder,& Aaron Miller 3 years ago after their maiden Big Day attempt netted astrong 170 species. With a refined schedule, more scouting, and a hopefullyhelpful new teammate, we had big hopes for May 12, 2016. Strong SW winds had usexpecting big things but the day crashed with heavy thunderstorms washing outour crucial morning time at Magee and we scraped the whole thing entirely to gochase down a Curlew Sandpiper near Oak Openings. Still, I came away feelingthat this team’s aggressive, well thought-out plan, extensive scouting, &high skill level especially in picking out all manner of distant bird soundsopened the possibilities of a huge Big Day number. I told a few friends thatshould the stars all align for a given year, this team could even realize themagical, mythical number of 200 species of birds in a single day.Then on May 17, 2017 we tried again. That day started withnumerous marsh bird misses but ended with a big shorebird rush late in the dayat Funk and a total of 180 species. Much went right that day and we had somegreat bonus birds like Loggerhead Shrike and I became much more skeptical aboutever hitting 200 as finding 20 species more than that day with 19 species ofshorebirds felt pretty insurmountable. So along came 2018 and a chance meeting with James E at theHolmes County Black-throated Gray Warbler began discussions about another BigDay. We all have enough work flexibility to try to pick the best day lastminute based on weather and stage of migration. Basically you want to pick atime somewhere in the middle of migration where there are still lingering ducksand early migrants like kinglets, Winter Wren, Yellow-rumped & PalmWarblers, but late enough that shorebirds are in full swing and later migrantslike Olive-sided & Yellow-bellied Flycatchers, Philly Vireo & MourningWarbler have begun to arrive.The plus side to my Amish teammates is that flexibility inschedule, super talented ears & eyes, and deep grasp of Ohio’s birdsincluding great intel about the latest in the bird-rich Bobolink Area. The downside is limited communication (basically I can’t contact them and can only waitfor them to call me about plans) & the fact that I’m the only one that candrive which becomes a pretty grueling 30 hours of driving all told. As the middle of May arrived I started getting phone callsasking about which day was looking most ideal and the future forecast pointedto Saturday, May 12 looking like the perfect day. However, an unusual weatherpattern settled in with a stationary front hanging over Lake Erie making theweather wildly unpredictable and by the time Friday rolled around Saturday’sforecast had changed to disastrously cold, 100% chance of rain, with bitter NWwinds. The guys had already travelled to Magee to scout and prepare to spendthe night in Toledo for our traditional start at Oak Openings by the time Idiscovered the weather change Friday morning and with no phone numbers to callI called friends I knew at Magee to get word to the team to see if we couldswitch to a later day which we were able to do. After more phone calls and forecast watching, we rescheduledfor Monday, May 14 even though the stationary front made the rain forecast alittle higher than we like. The winds were kind of forecast various directionsbut more importantly for us, expected to be very light at less than 5 mph whichallows us to hear many more birds, especially in the dark, and also tends tokeep all of the ducks and other stakeout birds from heading north overnight. However, planning a Monday event meant a huge change inplans for our route. In the past we always start in Oak Openings at midnight,then do the NW marshes, then Mohican, then Funk & Killbuck/Bobolink areas.But with Sunday being the day before our Big Day, our team didn’t want totravel on a Sunday so we decided to completely reverse our route. This wassomething we had wondered in the past if it might be an improvement but withthis last minute change, we headed into Monday with no detailed plan about whenwe needed to leave each area to allow enough time to get to all ourdestinations. That’s usually a recipe for Big Day disaster. The change in date brought another huge change for our team.Once we cancelled our Saturday plans, Aaron Miller committed to helping with adifferent Big Day on Saturday, all within the Bobolink Area. His team netted anamazing 176 species all within the 12 landlocked Bobolink counties. Several ofthose birds became major targets of our Big Day two days later. But it alsomeant that Aaron had slept only five hours in the 62 hours leading up to ourBig Day and with great regret, Aaron bowed out of our Big Day when he learnedone of his Bobolink Big Day teammates was willing to step in for him. So EliMiller, narrator of the Bobolink Rare Bird Hotline, jumped in as our new 4thmember.So Sunday afternoon I left the Mother’s Day gathering at mymother-in-law’s home and headed to my mother’s house in Kidron.  In a classic “kill two birds with one stone”move, I was able to spend a few hours honoring my awesome mom before climbinginto my old bed at my parent’s house and sleeping from 8 until 10PM when I gotup to head south to pick up Tim, Eli, & then James.It was weird talking on the way to our first stop about whatour plan was: did anyone know what times we should leave certain areas, didanyone have an order of how we would pursue the targets in the Bobolink area?Technically no one did exactly but James & Eli had a gazetteer map in theback and very quickly had a great plan bouncing around their heads. The infofrom the Big Day 2 days ago would bear much fruit for our statewide Big Day. The counting began at 12:00.Our first stop was for a Prairie Warbler Eli had onSaturday, albeit during daylight in Coshocton County. As we all piled out, #1was a Chat, whose goofy vocalizations sound even more wild under the cloak ofdarkness. Unfortunately the Prairie was not as inclined to sing at night andwould become a bird we would miss all together for the day.12:10: Stop number 2 at the traditional Whip-poor-will spotnear Tiverton. The calm winds started paying dividends as Swainson’s &Gray-cheeked Thrush & Indigo Bunting were heard migrating overhead &both cuckoos sounded off in distant woodlots. Henslow’s Sparrows “tse-licked”in the fields and several Whip-poor-wills sang endlessly in the distance.12:50: Our first stakeout from the Bobolink Big Day was aSedge Wren in a field behind a home. A very speedy walk covered well over a quartermile through a woods. Such pitch black walks in the middle of the night are arefreshing twist to the normal routine of life and make you feel very alive ata very odd time of day. Soon the woods opened up into a classic field of verytall grass and 50 yards into our march through the field James ordered us to“Stop!” His brilliant ears had picked up the wren in full song far ahead of uswhile we were all still crunching through the field. Ch-ching. A SolitarySandpiper called while passing overhead. The older woods around us made methink of screech-owl. “Do we have a spot for screech-owl planned?” I asked.“Yes but you could try here I guess” responds Eli. One quick call and in a fewseconds Eastern Screech-Owl whinnies in the distance.1:55: Not long ago Force Rd West was packed with birdersoooing and ahhhing over a stunning Cinnamon Teal. Now in the dead of night it’sjust us and the marsh birds—unnoticeable during the day but raucous andwonderful under the cloak of darkness. Immediately we hear numerous CommonGallinules making every manner of weird sounds. Virginia Rails are “kiddicking”in every direction. Swamp Sparrows are numerous & yet another Chat soundsoff.  After a surprising wait, Sorasstart firing off. Last year we had ended our Big Day right here vainly tryingfor Barred Owl which we couldn’t believe never sounded off.  This morning there are Barred Owlscaterwauling in every direction. Listening to marsh birds at nighttime is oneof my favorite birding sensations and on most occasions I could happily standthere for hours soaking in the experience. But on a Big Day time is of the essence and we are running out of timewith our two primary targets still silent: Least Bittern & King Rail. Finally,something triggers the big boys and a King Rail bursts out its resonant callright beside us with a close second bird following just a couple notes behindit. Surprisingly a third of these large, rare-in-Ohio rails calls just as theother two ended about 50 yards NE of the first pair. We move on without a LeastBittern.2:40: Still in Killbuck, a short distance away on ValleyRoad, we try unsuccessfully again for Least Bittern. A consolation AlderFlycatcher “free-beer-os” away as do many Marsh Wrens, more rails, and moreBarred Owls.3:10: Our last stop in Killbuck Marsh nets us ANOTHER Chat,and our target American Woodcock “peenting” away. Their mating call iswidespread in this marsh in March but we are happy to hear one still struttinghis stuff now in mid-May.3:55: Our Bobolink Area connections at work again as we stopat an acquaintance’s farm to peek up his silo. It’s always a coin flip at nightwhether our special friend will be in the silo at night or out hunting. Thistime we’re fortunate as a gorgeous Barn Owl peers down at us wondering whystrange people are looking up at him at 4:00AM.4:40: Our last enveloped in darkness stop is at Leighly Hillin Tuscarawas County. Long the most reliable spot in the Bobolink Area for LarkSparrow & Blue Grosbeak, Lark Sparrows have been steadily declining hereand Saturday’s Big Day search found no Lark Sparrows leading us to believe theymay be gone from the area for good. The pre-dawn chorus gradually kicked in asthe first hint of light slowly approached as we waited: Wild Turkey,Grasshopper Sparrow, Horned Lark, Orchard Oriole and many more. Wait! Did youhear that? We all looked at each other. Now it sings again, this time veryclose and unmistakable. Lark Sparrow! An unexpected, delightful bonus as thebird landed not 10’ in front of us belting out its beautiful, diverse songthough it was still too dark to make out its fancy facial gear and white tailfeathers. A few minutes later Blue Grosbeak sang its way onto our list and wewere off to the next place where we could begin to actually see birds.5:55: A quick stop at Dundee fields included our secondunsuccessful try for Prairie Warbler. One nested here last year but seems tonot be present this year. We did add Bobolink & Savannah Sparrow & aLincoln’s Sparrow oddly perched on the roadside barbwire fence became our firstbird identified by sight.6:20: With a bit of drive time to our next stop at TheWilderness Center we had time for a little visiting amongst ourselves as Idon’t get to see these guys much throughout the year. It has been an excitingyear! Tim had just returned from a visit to Bolivia, the country where myadopted son was born and a beautiful country I have visited 5 times. Tim hadasked me before he traveled about where to bird while there and was able tovisit one of my favorite spots on the planet, “El Refugio Los Volcanes”. “Guesswhat we saw as we were driving in?” he grinned. I only needed one guess—HarpyEagle. I’ve seen over 500 species of birds in Bolivia but I’d trade most ofthem for a chance to see that mystical beast. Both of my other teammates areentering married life in 2018. James had just tied the knot in late April;Eli’s turn is coming later this summer. We had a chance throughout the day totalk about learning to balance priorities and how to healthily and with honorlive with a love of both family and birding. The Wilderness Center was churningwith a nice migrant flock at the entrance but we didn’t dig too deeply into it, trusting in our later stop at MageeMarsh. We were here to pick up Kentucky Warbler which was missing from Mohicanon Saturday. We got it and another helpful Wilderness Center specialty, bothCarolina & Black-capped Chickadee. We actually had 54 species here in ahalf hour.7:10: We planned to stop back in at my parent’s house inKidron where I had been sleeping 9 hours ago. Eurasian Collared-Doves nestnearby and last year we arrived 15 minutes after they went to roost for thenight. We didn’t even need to pull into their driveway. One collared-dove wasperched upon its favored TV antennae just south of my parent’s house. Timesaved. Pedal down.7:15 Vesper Sparrow has been a Big Day nemesis. Every yearwe have one staked out. Every year we seem to miss it anyways. This year wewere back at last year’s spot that got ruined by plowing the day we arrived.This year the field was already plowed again and I quickly got that “Here we goagain” feeling. No beautiful Vesper song greeted our ears so we all began todoggedly scan the furrows of the field. “I got it” calls out James. The resteagerly ask where, as picking out a distant sparrow in a plowed field can betough. Suddenly a brilliant Red-headed Woodpecker plopped down in the field.“The sparrow is 12 inches to the left of the woodpecker” says James. Thank youwoodpecker! A Bobwhite called beyond the sparrow. Fun to hear but we won’tcount it because there is not a known population in the area so we chalk it upas a likely released bird. Just up the road we try for a Clay-colored Sparrowseen the night before. It’s one of our few stakeout misses but instead we findthe day’s only Mockingbird, Pipits, and a flyover Dickcissel saving a stop atanother stakeout. 8:15 Back in Killbuck Valley this time in daylight, we stopat Messner Rd in search of Brown Creeper. The bird seen Saturday is stubborntoday. As we wait, we add Prothonotary Warbler, Hooded Merganser, our onlyKingfisher of the day (one of those common birds easy to miss on a Big Day),Canada & Wilson’s Warblers. Just as we decide to get back in the car andmove on, the Creeper appears out of thin air spiraling up a tree right besidethe road. Ch-ching.9:05 Wilderness Road has a make or break feel to it as weapproach. Last year late in the day this new drive just west of the peat pitslit a fire to our day as we hit jackpot with Red-necked Phalaropes,Black-bellied & Golden Plovers, Ruddy Turnstone, Stilt Sandpiper,  White-rumped Sandpiper, Short-billedDowitcher, & Green-winged Teal. As we pulled in the lane we were excited tosee even more extensive habitat here than last year. But alas, numbers anddiversity were barely a shadow of the previous year. A handful of Black-belliedPlover and one Semipalmated Sandpiper were the only birds that stood a chanceof helping our day. A shadow was cast over our hopes but we crossed our fingersthat the new Howard Marsh along Lake Erie would make up for the disappointingshowing at Wilderness Rd.10:30 Mohican is an ace in the hole that allows Big dayfolks to stay further north that what’s typically required to find some southernnesters and also allows you to see some northern nesters that are difficult tofind migrants elsewhere. As we pulled into our first stop by the shrine, thewinds kicked up, the sky darkened, the temps dropped, and rain looked imminent.Not a good thing when we needed to hear so many birds we could get nowhereelse. We dipped on Summer Tanager but found Purple Finch, LouisiannaWaterthrush, Pine Warbler, the Kentucky Warbler that didn’t cooperate Saturday,and 2 bonus Pine Siskins. We decided to head to the Gorge Overlook and comeback to try again for the Summer Tanager. We met a bit of a disaster. A roadpaving crew was at work and told us it was impossible to get to the Gorge Overlooktoday. This was our only known spot for Hermit Thrush & Blue-headed Vireo.Bummed, we headed down to the covered bridge. Worm-eating Warbler, CanadaWarbler, Winter Wren, Black-and-white Warbler, Yellow-throated Warbler, Veery,Ovenbird, Hooded Warbler, Cerulean Warbler, & Northern Parula all sang onterritory. We headed back up out of the river bottom on Road 58 and lucked into an alternate site Blue-headed Vireo and an even bigger bonus singingGolden-crowned Kinglet. We booked it back up to the shrine and with the windscalmed down and the rain having skirted past us, a pair of Summer Tanagers werequickly cooperative this time. Onward with Hermit Thrush the only casualty ofthe closed road.12:05PM: Mohler Wildlife Area is a poorly marked remote areaoutside Mohican. Last year we got our first Chat there and this year we weretrying for Blue-winged Warbler. It didn’t take 2 minutes to find one. Our onlyRed-shouldered Hawks of the day were a bonus here.12:30PM: Our only real rain of the day was falling inbuckets as we made our first of two stops for deep water divers. The onlypayoff for scoping in the downpour was a handful of lingering Red-breastedMergansers. We pointed straight north for the Lake Erie Marshes exiting theBobolink Area with 158 species. If we could have chosen the best time in ourday for rain this was it and it was pouring.1:45PM: Deep water spot #2, Willard Reservoir is an upgroundreservoir off the beaten path. As we crested the uphill driveway to the boatramp we could see the lake was covered with swallows. Our first Bank Swallowswere calling and Tim quickly called out, “Black Tern!” Ducks were present inthe distance and we soon picked out Ruddy Ducks, more Red-breasted Mergansers,a Lesser Scaup, & 2 Common Loons. 3:25PM: The afternoon drowsies started kicking in for myteammates and the grind of being the only driver set in as we chugged towardsLake Erie. Our first gas stop of the day provided a stretch, some fresh air,and some energy drinks for my sleepy teammates before we continued north. Ourfirst stop along the Lake was the Boss Unit where we had staked out both teal,pintail, & Gadwall a couple days prior. Heavy rains had muddied and raisedthe water and only Blue-winged Teal remained. We did however see distantshorebirds to the east along Darsch Rd. A quick jump over to Darsch landedmultiple gulls, terns, and shorebirds including 2 American Golden-Plovers. Wedidn’t think much of them as there had been over a thousand Golden-Plovers atHoward Marsh just 2 days before. But they turned out to be our only Golden-Ploversof the day. 3:45PM: An internet search of when the Ottawa Auto Tour closedsaid 4:00PM so we hustled over to get on the Tour just under the wire. TheBlack-necked Stilts and Snowy Egrets remained at their favored spots by post #3but all the other shorebirds that had been there were gone. The deeper poolinto the Lucas County portion produced American Wigeon, Gadwall, NorthernShoveler, and a late Horned Grebe. We had been noticing Broad-winged Hawk kettlesand were keeping an eye to the sky to pick up new hawks. Cooper’s , Harrier,and a very late Rough-legged Hawk passed over but we would miss Sharp-shinnedHawk for the day. Fortunately the drive was not crowded and we made it throughthe Tour in record time.4:40PM: In previous years doing this route in reverse, wealways hit the famous Magee Boardwalk right at first light, quickly passingthrough the boardwalk before it got crowded and before we got grabbed intoconversations we didn’t have time for or were tempted to illegally seekinformation about birds from others. This afternoon the bird trail was stillquite packed along the west entrance and we soon heard whispers why.Yesterday’s Black-throated Gray Warbler was apparently still around and masseswere trying to relocate her. Staying out of the largest mass and looking from adifferent angle, Tim almost immediately found this stray from the western U.S.adding a mega bonus bird for our day. We only had a few missing migrants andthey appeared quickly: Bay-breasted, Cape May, Black-throated Blue, &Mourning Warbler, Philadelphia Vireo, & Northern Waterthrush. A lateRuby-crowned Kinglet was a bonus as was a teed up Olive-sided Flycatcher; notjust a great addition to our day but a state bird nemesis for Eli. Big grinswere shared! Not our first of the day but likely the most unusual sight on theBoardwalk was a Sedge Wren crawling under logs and vegetation not a foot fromthe boardwalk. Why it flew over all that habitat in the marsh to land in themiddle of that woodlot will remain a mystery. We broke our old record of 180appropriately with the Olive-sided Flycatcher and left the Boardwalk in the mid180s with several good stops left. Things were getting very interesting!Drowsiness was LONG gone!6:05PM: Knowing of the Great Horned Owl nest along theEstuary Trail freed us from trying for this owl earlier in the day. The easilyviewed nestling was right where it should be and we began to pish for our stillmissing White-throated Sparrow we thought we could dig up along this trail.James whistled a great impersonation of their minor key song while the rest ofus pished and chipped and sure enough a White-throated Sparrow quicklyresponded! On to Metzger!6:15PM: We busted straight to the dike beyond Metzger’s woodlotwhere my teammates had scoped a Yellow-headed Blackbird on Friday. On our wayout we peered down on the tiny beach where they’d had Ruddy Turnstone &Sanderling on Friday. A shorebird got us excited!---only to turn into a SpottedSandpiper. Some Bobolink Area friends were scoping the blackbird area when wearrived and we quickly had a teed up male Yellow-headed Blackbird in view! Backwe went to the furthest south pull-off to scan the muskrat mounds to see ifyesterday’s Neotropic  Cormorant mightstill be around. A backlit cormorant across the canal over in Howard Marsh gaveus pause but turned out to be a Double-crested. However, as we continued toscan a soft, guttural 3 note call hit my ear. “Least Bittern!!” I screamed.Fortunately my yell didn’t bother the bird and it went on to become very vocalfor us. Now every time we add a new bird we are asking ourselves, “How manydoes that give us?” We double check our count on the way to Howard Marsh to besure we know exactly how many we have. We also admit we want to know exactly howmany we need to reach the magical 200. It is within reach!7:00PM: The brand new, sparkling Howard Marsh is going to makeor break our dreams. We stand at 191. We need shorebirds!! A nice group ofshorebirds are gathered along the entrance road. We quickly see numerousShort-billed Dowitchers there—192. Unfortunately the shorebird diversityappears pretty low and all the plovers are gone.  Tons of Dunlin, but not much else. We head tothe NW end and start scoping the distant corner that had held lingering duckslast week. The Canvasback are gone but the Redhead pair remains for 193. Lotsof hardcore scoping turns up nothing new. Then a “Beerk” in the sky behind ustells of approaching Common Nighthawks—194. Back to intense scanning of thevegetation and water to the north when finally James says, “I’m looking at aPintail”. We all quickly look in his scope before it disappears into thegrasses again—195. Further scoping reveals a small, backlit duck about as faraway in the marsh as it could get . We study it for a while. Finally thelighting is good enough to reveal it to be the female Bufflehead I had seenlast week.—196. Now we’re getting serious! Surely those Wilson’s Phalaropesthat have been here for about a week are still around somewhere. I turn myscope towards the south where it had been before and start panning the weedyedge. There it is! “Phalarope” I proclaim victoriously—197 in the bag! Beforelong the Black-crowned Night-Herons arrive. Two different birds come flying inover the marsh—198! Lots of time left!! But not much daylight. We discussvarious strategies for getting 2 more birds. American Bittern is likely a given.How to get one more?! Should we stay and wait for a new bird to drop in here atHoward Marsh? At 8:50 we pull the plug here. The race is on!9:00PM: We pull into the parking lot at Mallard Club Marshand James is headed out the path while the rest are still gathering our gear.With the car doors still open and gear gathering still happening, an AmericanBittern loudly “Oink-a-lunks” from very close by! That was easy and fast! Andthat’s 199!!!!We decide there’s enough light to race to Maumee Bay to tryand scrounge up Turnstone or Sanderling. By now there’s still a bit of lightbut we are spotlighting the shore of the inland beach. No luck. We walk theouter beach along the shore. No shorebirds here either. Now it’s hardcoredecision time. It’s not quite 9:30, plenty of time but to try for what? Wediscuss heading to the University of Toledo where a Peregrine Falcon on thebell tower has been a lock for us every year in the dark. We could also tryIrwin Prairie for the lingering Yellow Rail or winnowing Snipe but experiencetaught us last week that after about 10:00PM it is almost impossible to hearanything but tree frogs. Or we could head east and try for winnowing snipealong the Magee causeway, then a Port Clinton Peregrine (which usually hasn’tworked at night), and lastly spotlighting for a Cackling Goose at the pond in frontof the Kalahari Water Park. Though the surer bet is the Toledo Falcon I admitto my teammates that I don’t think I will be able to stay awake until the 3 or4:00 AM I’d need to be driving it we went west to Irwin and/or Toledo. So eastit is. We listened for winnowing snipe at Magee. We’d heard them in the darkhere in mornings past and there would be a report right here pre-dawn thefollowing morning, May 15. But no snipe winnowed for us. East on Route 2 weheaded toward Port Clinton. In fatigue we missed the exit for the Falcon anddecided not to go back on it since it had never worked in the past. On to Kalahariwhere we’re awkwardly looking for geese in the dark while guests are millingabout. The fountain in the middle of the pond has red, blue, & yellowlights that give off enough light to make out that there are Canada Geese inthe pond. But it is very questionable whether there is enough light to sort outa Cackling Goose. We try. Hard. And we find no Cackling Goose. It’s past 11:30.We have an hour and a half drive to where I’ll drop off my teammates and thenanother hour drive for me to get home. We pull the plug. We will gladly accept199.From what we know, 199 represents the second highest Big Daytotal in Ohio’s history. On May 11, 1987 John Pogacnik & Kirk Alexander hit205. As far as I know that same team has the third highest total with 186 onMay 10, 1985. We had two near misses for 200. While driving down Route 2we all saw two swans far back from the road in the marsh that had curved necksand raised wings. It was too far to see the bill. We talked quite a while ifthere was any way Trumpeter Swans could show that neck and wing structure anddecided we couldn’t count them. We also saw 2 swans along the Magee Causewaythat were likely Mute but we passed them before we noticed and couldn’t stopand back up due to traffic and by the time we got back there they were gone. Wesaw many Trumpeter Swans but we didn’t count them due to the current status of thisspecies in Ohio. On the Auto Tour James saw a warbler fly by that heimmediately called a Palm Warbler. He has studied many warblers in flight andquickly called out all the pertinent field marks. He said for a regular daylist he wouldn’t hesitate to call it a Palm. But for this list he couldn’t.  He was the only one who saw it. Only 95% of ateam’s species need to be seen by all the team. We only had 2 that weren’t seenby everyone. In hindsight the closed road at Mohican likely cost us 200 by wayof Hermit Thrush. But maybe our time would have shifted just enough we’d havemissed the Golden-crowned Kinglet. Other key misses were Ruddy Turnstone, Sanderling,White-rumped Sandpiper, Wilson’s Snipe, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, PectoralSandpiper, Forster’s Tern, Green-winged Teal, Prairie Warbler, &Sharp-shinned Hawk. That list seems long when you just wanted one more but byBig Day standards there were no glaring, real easy misses. As I finish writing this on May 17, Kenn Kaufman points outthat today marks the 120th anniversary of two Ohioans, Lynds Jones& W.L. Dawson becoming, as far as we know, the first people ever to see 100species of birds anywhere in the world, in one day; traveling from Oberlin toLorain. It was an honor and an absolute blast to add another piece to Ohio’slong Big Day history by ALMOST doubling the total of those two legends almostexactly 120 years later. At one point I thought 205 would stand forever. Now I amconvinced it will not. Hopefully someone reading this will have a fire lit thatpropels them to push the bar even higher. For now, I will joyfully tuck away 24hours’ worth of golden memories spent careening across the state with two goodfriends the year they got married and another who saw a Harpy Eagle in one ofmy favorite spots on the planet. Shared memories are one of the most treasuredcomponents of Big Day birding. Birding is largely about treasure hunting. A Scarlet Tanageris a treasure. So is a Song Sparrow. For many, seeing 50 species of birds inone day would be a treasure. For others, hitting 100 would be a treasured day. Forsome readers the thought of 200 in an Ohio Big Day sparks a shiny gleam deepinside. For some, the number 206 kindles the imagination like a buriedtreasure. So who’s next? Treasured days of adventure await!Kent MillerHartville, OH

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Great birding around Columbus
Greetings, birders!



We returned from the Biggest Week in American Birding on Monday, only to be
treated to continued spectacular birding yesterday and (briefly) today, here
in central Ohio. A good number of Bobolinks are showing really well at
Glacier Ridge Metro Park. Migrant flycatchers seem to have arrived en masse
as there were large number of Willow Flycatchers there at Glacier Ridge
today, then at Kiwanis Riverside Park there were very vocal Alder and
Yellow-bellied Flycatchers yesterday. Our short visit to Kiwanis was really
excellent, in fact, as there was a Mourning Warbler (thanks Anna Wittmer)
and a Canada Warbler hanging out in the same bush, and a Broad-winged Hawk
flew over at one point. The OSU airport Upland Sandpipers have been
co-operative (thanks James Muller), and Dickcissels have also been around
there. Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park yesterday afternoon had really large
numbers of Henslow's Sparrows, many of them right next to the trail, a very
vocal Sedge Wren also right next to the trail (the Harrier Trail) and as
usual good numbers of American Bitterns, Sora and Virginia Rails.



If anyone wants more specific information about any of the above, just let
me know. And I'm always eager to get out birding - if there are a few people
who want to see any specific targets, I'd enjoy joining a morning session
somewhere to join up and try. I'm also leading a Columbus Audubon Society
outing to Battelle Darby next Wed morning - details will be on their website
and social media.



Ohio birding is spectacular at the moment.!



Cheers,

Chris

Subject: [Ohio-birds] RFI: Chuck-will's Widow info...
Greetings!

I have very few Ohio Life Birds left...really only one or two "normal"
breeding birds. This Friday I hope to get at least one off the list. So...

I was wondering if anyone has info on good places to see a Chuck-will's
Widow. I would like to get a few pictures as well...I see on eBird some
saying heard only, and some are posted later in the day giving the
impression that they were seen. So I was hoping to get at least one in my
bins.

My only other need is a Yellow Rail, so if I do not get any info on the
Will's Widow, I might have to hop up to Toodledoo and hear the Rail...but
that is really early. :-D

So any info would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot,

Steve J.

2 birds at Wolf Run State Park in the pine and deciduous trees next to the
short stairway from the beach parking area down to the beach. Both seen and
heard.

According to eBird there are very few May records for OH south of
I-70--especially east of the Hocking Hills. I suspect, however, that is due
to the fact that southeastern OH is very lightly birded.

Also a Bay-breasted Warbler at the picnic area. Otherwise nothing
especially noteworthy.

Hi All,
On this (very rainy!) day, I went to the West Woods (Geauga Co.) and was going to go on one of the trails to look for some warblers when it started to rain heavily. Not wanting to get soaked in it, I went inside to bird from the West Woods Nature Center's feeder windows, and eating seed on the ground (in the company of chipmunks and a Dark-eyed Junco) was a Veery! It was a lifer for me and also arose a question- do veerys often come to bird feeders?

Subject: [Ohio-birds] DublinSciotoGorge,5-14:Connecticut,Mourning,Canada
Quick stops at several spots around the Scioto River gorge in Dublin
produced quite a few interesting birds, including many traditionally 'late'
warblers. I stopped at Kiwanis Park, Koscuiscko Park, and O'Shaughnessy
Dam - the first two in the morning, the latter in the afternoon. Water
levels along the river here are quite low, accounting for quite a few
herons, egrets, and cormorants along the river. Notables included:

Herons,Egrets - Kiwanis had 8 Great Blues & 4 Great Egrets, while
Koscuiscko had a Great Egret and Green Heron (and it doesn't even have
river frontage!)

Hummingbirds - had them at all 3 stops

Flycatchers - Pewees & Great Crested were widespread. Kiwanis and the Dam
had Kingbirds, while Koscuiscko had 2 Acadians

Vireos - Red-eyed were common at all 3 sites, and Kiwanis also had several
Warbling

Thrushes - Swainsons were at all 3 sites, and Kiwanis & Koscuiscko also had
Woods

Warblers - no great numbers, but several 'last-wave' warblers including a
singing Connecticut (Kiwanis), Mourning (Koscuiscko), Canada (Kiwanis), and
Wilson's (Kiwanis, Koscuiscko). Also had Yellow, Prothonotary (Kiwanis),
Yellow-throated, Yellow-rumped, Magnolia, Redstarts, Ovenbird,
ComYellowthroats

Tanagers - singing Scarlets were at Koscuiscko and the Dam

Orioles - plenty of Baltimores at every site, but no Orchards here.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Update on Hoover Reservoir Prothonotary Warblers
The Prothonotary Warblers are back at the north end of Hoover Reservoir in good numbers. My latest swing through areas along the shore produced 78 individuals. We have yet to set sail this spring so the numbers on the islands and along the lower east shore are still to be determined. Happily I have observed them bringing nest materials to a number of my nest boxes. The biggest deterrent at the moment is to not trip over the fishermen as the fish are hitting everywhere.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Mohican State Park, covered bridge along Clear Fork River
My wife and I birded along the river above and below the covered bridge in
Mohican state park this morning from 9-11:30am. We managed to miss the rain
storm that came later. Birds were singing nicely in the trees. We saw
several warblers well (black-throated blue, yellow-rumped, Am. redstart,
Canada, Louisiana waterthrush) and several more quickly at a distance
(cerulean, N. parula, chestnut-sided, hooded). There were several cerulean
warblers singing, but all were way high in the canopy and hard to see.
Thrushes were common. We saw several of three species (veery, Swainson's,
wood), as well as several red-eyed and yellow-throated vireos. A winter
wren was singing nicely across the river near the downstream end of the B
camp. In total we saw 33 species of birds and heard 9 more. Randy Rowe,
Wooster.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] North Coast Open - Big Day Competition - May 18 and 19
Birders,

The Toledo Naturalists' Association will host the 24th annual North Coast
Open birding competition this year on May 18 and 19. The competition
covers Lucas, Wood, Ottawa, Sandusky, and Erie Counties, which collectively
have many of the top birding sites in the state: the Oak Openings, Magee
Marsh, Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, Metzger Marsh, Maumee Bay State
Park, Pickerel Creek, Pipe Creek, and Sheldon Marsh, among many others.

If you're looking for a cure for the Biggest Week hangover/withdrawal, or
just need another excuse to get back out to the lakeshore in May, this is
it! Breeders should all be back on territory, migrants should still be
plentiful, and this is prime time for goodies like Connecticut Warbler and
Olive-sided Flycatcher. Last year's winners -- "No Sleep 'Til Packos" --
came in with 150 species on a blustery day. The all-time record of 179
species was set by the "Rudderless Turnstones" in 2010; it is high time
this record was bested.

Teams compete in a variety of divisions: Junior, Senior, Open, Freestyle
(ideal for families with little kids), and Human-Powered. The overall
winner is awarded the prestigious Peregrine Cup. The competition runs from
7pm Friday May 18 to 7pm Saturday May 19. Bird all night or grab a few
hours of sleep before the dawn chorus hits. Teams must turn in their lists
at the finish line at 7pm on Saturday, which this year is at Tony Packo's
in East Toledo.

See the TNA website (http://www.toledonaturalist.
org/?event=north-coast-open&event_date=2018-05-18) for rules and
registration. Note that the rules vary slightly from traditional ABA Big
Day rules (e.g., everyone on the team must see/hear every bird; no
broadcast of tapes/recordings). There is no fee to participate.

Feel free to email me with any questions.

Cheers,

Matt Kemp

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Scioto-Berliner,5-13:migrants
The Columbus Audubon trip to this downtown riverfront parks found a decent
migrant fallout this morning. Bird numbers were not large, but there was
good diversity and lots of singing males still around, so we were able to
find and see a variety of migrants. The group spent several hours along
the bike path in Scioto Audubon Park, and I stopped briefly at the Ohio
Statehouse (early) and Berliner Park (late). Notables included:

Herons & Egrets - small #s pof Great Blue Herons and Gret Egrets were along
the river, and 2 Green Herons were off the boat ramp area at Scioto Audubon

Raptors - an Osprey pari have started a nest on a microwave tower across
from the boat ramp, while the eagle nest across the river from Berliner now
has a large juvenile

Shorebirds - little other than Killdeer and 1 Spotted Sandpiper

Woodpeckers - nothing unusual along the river, but a Sapsucker was
lingering at the Statehouse Park

Flycatchers - small numbers of Pewees were augmented by 1 Great Crested
(Scioto Audubon), 4-5 Least Flycatchers, 3 Acadians (Berliner), and 1
Willow (Scioto).

Vireos - lots of Warblings along the River (15+), plus a few Red-eyed (6+)
and 1 Blue-headed

Thrushes - hardly any at Scioto Audubon, but Berliner had 5 Swainsons and 1
Wood Thrush

Mimids - nothing but Catbirds, but they were abundant and singing everywhere

Warblers - 21 species, including Parula, Yellow, Nashville, Tennessee,
Magnolias (6+), Cape May, Black-thr.Greens, Black-thr.Blues (2 at
Berliner), Yellow-throated (Berliner), Yellow-rumps (most common, with
15-20), Blackburnians, Bay-breasted, Blackpoll (surprisingly abundant, with
12-15), N.Waterthrush, Ovenbird (statehouse), Prothonotaries (1 Scioto, 2
Berliner), Chesnut-sided (4 at Berliner), Redstarts (12+),
Com.Yellowthroat, Canadas, Wilson's

Tanagers - not a one, suprisingly

Buntings,Grosbeaks - Indigo Buntings were numerous along the bike path in
both parks, but only Berliner had a singing Rose-br.grosbeak

Orioles - Baltimores were abundant (16-20 at Scioto Audubon, 5-6 at
Berliner), but there were also a few Orchards (2 at Scioto Audubon, 1 at
Berliner)

Subject: [Ohio-birds] GallantWoods-DelawareLake,5-12:Egrets,warblers
We stopped by these two Delaware County migrant traps this morning and
weren't disappointed. Both had good activity of thrushes, warblers,
orioles, and flycatchers, as well as some un-expecteds. Gallant Woods now
has 2 small wetlands that had attracted some shorebirds & egrets.
Panhandle Rd in the Delaware Wildlife area also had some residual wetlands,
which should enlarge with the expected rain this week. Notables for the
day included:

Egrets - Gallant Woods wetlands had 5 Great Egrets, while Panhandle Rd had
1 Snowy Egret

Sandpipers - Gallant Woods wetland had 2 Solitaries and 1 unidentified
peep, while Panhandle Rd had 2 Solitaries, 4 Least, and 2 Semipalmated
Sandpipers

Woodpeckers - at least 2 Red-headed were around the disc golf course at
Delaware St.Park, and Diana briefly saw a sapsucker there as well.

Flycatchers - Pewees, Great Cresteds, and E.Kingbirds were common at both
sites. Gallant Woods also had Willow & Least Flycatchers, while Delaware
St. Park had Least and Acadian

Vireos - Red-eyed were common at both sites, but Gallant Woods had
Yellow-throated, while Delaware St Park added Warblings

Thrushes - Swainsons were abundant at both spots, and each had a few Wood
Thrushes. Gallant Woods also had a Veery and Gray-cheeked

Mimids - Catbirds were abundant at both spots, while Gallant Woods added a
Brown Thrasher

Chat - Gallant Woods had a singing Yellow-br.Chat around the small wetland
loop trail

Warblers - plenty at both Gallant Woods (15) and Delaware St.Park (14), but
the wind picked up at Panhandle so the totals there were negligible.
Included in the tally were Parula, Yellow, Nashville, Tennessees (common),
Magnolias (common), Chestnut-sided (common), Blackburnian, Black-thr.Green,
Black-thr.Blue, Black&White, AmerRedstarts (common), Ovenbirds,
N.Waterthrush, Mourning, Canada

Grosbeaks,Buntings - Indigo Buntings were common at both spots, and both
had singing Rose-br.Grosbeaks

Orioles - Baltimores were common at Gallant Woods and abundant at Delaware
St.Park (15-20). Each site also had Orchard orioles; Delaware St.Park had
an Orchard pair building a nest in a big pine right at the entrance to the
marina parking area

Tuesday evening I had a Wilson's Snipe and an American Woodcock calling and
displaying near my home. While mowing today, I spooked the snipe and it
flew away from me. It was hanging out in a low spot of tall grass that
still has standing water. There was a pair displaying courtship behavior in
that spot a couple of years ago, but I never located a nest or saw young
ones.

Two White-crowned Sparrows are still frequenting the feeder area. A
Northern Oriole and Warbling Vireo are singing all day, Eastern Meadowlarks
are singing in the field, and we're up to at least three Ruby-throated
Hummingbirds at the feeders.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Ashtabula Co. birds 5/11
I spent 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM in Ashtabula Co. yesterday, hitting several places.  I started at the SR 193/Stollaker Rd. area of Denmark Twp.  Seen there were: a hunting female n. harrier (a nester in this area), great views of 2 upland sandpipers (on the ground, perched on poles, and in flight - heard flight call and song), spotted sandpiper, Am. kestrel, 2 horned larks, savannah sparrow, and bobolinks.  From there I went to Conneaut harbor.  It was cold there with the wind blowing off the lake.  At least the first gate was open, so I was able to drive out to the toll gate and park.  I talked to the man running the infamous grooming tractor there, he said the toll gate won't be open until they can fill the 2 spots where the sand road on the spit has been washed out by the high water.  You can easily walk through these spots, so the spit is still quite birdable.  Seen there were: common merganser, 6 bald eagles, 3 dunlin, greater yellowlegs, a good count of 125 Caspian terns, and 4 common terns.  I headed south from there, and saw an Am. kestrel in Richmond Twp.  My next stop was in Dorset Twp., at and around Dorset WA.  Found there were wild turkey, a calling barred owl, Am. kestrel, hooded warbler, Am. redstart, white-crowned sparrow, e. towhees, scarlet tanager, and rose-breasted grosbeak.  My last stop of the day was at the Grand River Lowlands Wetland, just west of the village of Orwell.  This is a very productive wetlands, and I saw trumpeter swan, 4 blue-winged teal, a hen hooded merganser w/2 nearly full-grown young, sora, least sandpiper, 3 solitary sandpipers, lesser yellowlegs, willow flycatcher, warbling vireo, n. rough-winged swallows, tree swallows, 40 barn swallows, 3 yellow-rumped warblers, 2 swamp sparrows, scarlet tanager, and rose-breasted grosbeak.  From there I headed home, and saw an osprey in Williamsfield to round out the day.  Craig Holt, Lowellville

As reported by others, a few black vultures have wintered among a flock of
turkey vultures in downtown Brecksville (Jct Rt 82 and 21), southern

Today I saw a black vulture lift off from the church rooftop and circle the

Subject: [Ohio-birds] AlumLakeBeach,Highbanks,5-11:turnstone,swallows,warblers
I took some time to visit these two parks north of Columbus today, and had
migration still sputtering along. At Alum Creek Lake, I roamed around the
beach and Visitors Center woods, while at Highbanks I hiked the Coyote
Trail. The beach at Alum Creek Lake didn't have a godwit, but still held
the Black-bellied Plover, as well as a scruffy-looking Ruddy Turnstone and
3-4 Spotted Sandpipers. Landbirds between there and Highbanks MetroPark
included:

-Flycatchers - multiple Wood Pewees and Great Cresteds at both spots, but
the Alum Creek Lake Beach also had a few Willow Flycatchers, and Highbanks
had Acadian and Leasts

-Swallows - the Alum Cr.Lake Beach had Tree, Cliff, Barn, and Bank
Swallows, as well as Purple Martins

-Vireos - Red-eyed were the most common at both sites with 3-4 at each,
while ALum Lake also had 2 Warbling, and Highbanks had a White-eyed and 2
Yellow-throated

-Thrushes - Swainsons still common, with 3-4 at each site. Highbanks also
had a Wood and a late Hermit thrush

-Warblers - neither location had large numbers. ALum Cr. lake had 6
species, while Highbanks had 12, with the list including Yellow (5+ at Alum
Beach area), Tennessees, Magnolias (4+ at Highbanks), Black-thr.Green,
Yellow-rumped, Black&White, Blackburnian, Redstarts (5+ at Highbanks),
Ovenbirds, LaWaterthrush, ComYellowthroats, Kentucky (1 at Highbanks)

-Tanagers - Scarlets were singing at both sites, while Highbanks had a
Summer tanager

-Buntings,Grosbeaks - Indigo Buntings were common at both spots; also had
singing Rose-br.Grosbeaks at both spots

-Orioles - much quieter, with only 1-2 Baltimores at each spot.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Least Tern and Black-necked Stilts
Hello,

This morning (5/10) Ethan Rising found a Least Tern in a small pond near
the office building within the Saint Marys Fish Hatchery, near Grand Lake
St Marys State Park, in Auglaize County. The bird continued to be seen
throughout the day. Also nearby at Mercer Wildlife area in Mercer County
were three Black-necked Stilts.
On Ray Road, near Gratis, in Preble County, Savannah Sparrows and
Dickcissels were in double-digit numbers and Bobolink was present as well.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Indian Lake - Yellow-headed Blackbird
We drove by Old Field Beach at Indian Lake this afternoon hoping to see the
stilts. We didn't find the stilts but we saw a Yellow-headed Blackbird on
the lawn near the south end of the lake. The Curlew Sandpiper was in the
newly built impoundment. Then we saw about 40 Forster's Terns flying over
the lake with one Black Tern. This was between 5:00 and 5:45 PM.

The previously reported curlew sandpiper was still at Indian Lake's Old

group of semipalmated plovers and least sandpipers. A group of 7
black-necked stilts also showed on the beach.

I had one hour to bird Chagrin River Park (http://www.lakemetroparks.com/parks-trails/chagrin-river-park) in Lake County this morning. I only wish I had more time as the birding was excellent. 55 species of birds were seen, with 12 species of warblers, the bulk of which were Black-throated Blue, Ovenbird, Black-and-White, and Magnolia (Tennessee, C. Yellowthroat, A. Redstart, Cape May, N. Parula, Yellow, Chestnut-sided, and Palm rounded out the rest). Both orioles, Indigo Buntings, grosbeaks, Lincolns Sparrow, White-eyed, Warbling, and Red-eyed Vireos were some of the other highlights. Also of interest was the 3 Red-headed Woodpeckers and zero Red-bellied! Get out there if you can I wish I had another couple hours to spend out there!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Magee Marsh dripping with Warblers
Hello!

Magee Marsh and surrounding areas (Lucas & Ottawa Co) were jamming with Warblers today. All along the boardwalk birds were working high, eye level, and low. It was truly a spectacle and definitely the best it’s been in my own experience. We had 24 species of Warblers today, including Golden-winged.

We also checked out Howard’s Marsh (just west of Metzger) and saw the thousands of Golden Plovers and Dunlin that were resting there. In a decade from now, it may be one of the best spots in Ohio for shorebirds and ducks. Kudos to those who worked hard to make that happen.

Now, we’ll watch for the second wave of migration as the winds crank up from the South and Southwest in the coming week.

Happy birding!

Hi all,

As with John, I had an excellent morning flight this morning but at Metzger Marsh. From 7:05am to 10:40am I counted 362 Baltimore Orioles (new eBird high count for Ohio), 33 Orchard Orioles, 33 Indigo Buntings, 1,600 Blue jays, and numerous Great Crested Flycatchers, Scarlet Tanagers, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks and Eastern Kingbirds to name a few. ALL heading east.

Fantastic day (5/9) at Lake Erie Bluffs in Lake County. There were large numbers of blue jays, orioles, goldfinches and kingbirds migrating by the tower this morning. Flybys of note were 7 red crossbills, observed heading west, and a fish crow heading east. I spent a bit of time on the trails off Lane Road. Of note there was a young male summer tanager, hooded and orange-crowned warbler, and yellow-breasted chat. There were a lot of thrushes in the woods.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Lake Erie Bluffs 5/9
Fantastic day (5/9) at Lake Erie Bluffs in Lake County. There were large numbers of blue jays, orioles, goldfinches and kingbirds migrating by the tower this morning. Flybys of note were 7 red crossbills, observed heading west, and a fish crow heading east. I spent a bit of time on the trails off Lane Road. Of note there was a young male summer tanager, hooded and orange-crowned warbler, and yellow-breasted chat. There were a lot of thrushes in the woods. Yellow warblers and gray catbirds were everywhere, even in the woods. In all, in five and a half hours, I had 112 species

As I lay in bed this morning unable to sleep my ear picked up a noise.
Was that a nighthawk booming?  Sure enough, followed by lots of eenting and
more booming.  A favorite for sure.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Powell,5-08: BlueGrosbeak, warblers
I stopped at several spots around Powell today, sandwiching trips to Smith
Preserve, Liberty Township Woods, and Traphagen Preserve around a job out
there today. Migrants were still much in evidence, with lots of singing at
all 3 sites. The Smith Preserve heron rookery, along Taggart Rd, is in
full swing, with plenty of large juveniles in many nests. Other notables
included:

Raptors - an Osprey was flying along the river at the Smith Preserve, while
a Red-shouldered Hawk was calling at Traphagen.

Ruby-thr.hummingbird - my FOS was at Liberty Woods

FLycatchers - Great Cresteds and Wood Pewees were at all 3 sites, but
little else yet. E.Kingbirds were at Smith Preserve and Liberty Woods.

Vireos - Warblings and Red-eyed were at all sites, while Yellow-throated
were at Liberty Woods & Traphagen, and a Blue-headed was at Traphagen

Thrushes - LOTS of Swainsons at all 3 sites; Woods were also singing at
all 3 sites, and Liberty Woods had a Veery

Mimids - many Catbirds at all 3 sites, and each also had single Brown
Thrashers. The only Mockingbird was singing along Taggart Rd.

Warblers - Traphagen was the star spot, with 14 species, while Liberty
Woods had 8 and Smith Preserve had 6. Species included Parula, Yellow,
Nashville, Tennessee (common), Chesnut-sided (common), Black-thr.Green,
Yellow-throated (only at Smith), Yellow-rumped (common), Palm,
Blackburnian, Redstarts, Hooded (Traphagen), Blue-winged (Traphagen),
Ovenbirds, Northern & Louisiana Waterthrushes, Common Yellowthroats.

Tanagers - the only one was a singing Scarlet at Liberty Woods

Grosbeaks,Buntings - Rose-breasted Grosbeaks & Indigo Buntings were at all
3 sites, while a gorgeous male Blue Grosbeak was along the roadside at
Smith Preserve

Orioles - Baltmores and Orchards were abundant in the riparian strip along
Taggart Rd; also had a few of each at Liberty Woods

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Rewarding Northwestern Ohio Birding Odyssey
After spending another winter in Florida, and coming home to the possibility of finding 3 bird species that we haven't seen in a number of years, because they are normally long gone when we return, this was an inspiration to do a long day trip. We departed our home in eastern Mahoning County yesterday, Monday, about 9AM. Three hours later we arrived at the previously described Snowy Owl site on Hellwig Road in Ottawa County. Five minutes later we checked off #1, finding it sitting on a log pile on the south side of the road. The trek then continued on to Lucas County and Oak Openings. At The Lodge Area we easily found our #2, 16 Red Crossbills in the pines. While passing thru the park we picked up 3 Lark Sparrows as a bonus. Next, being in the Irwin Prairie area, we decided to take a chance on the recently reported Yellow Rail site. About 4PM we got lucky, after a short wait, we were treated to two short classic "tic-tic-tic-tic" calls, one bird or two? On the return toward home, we stopped for a one hour visit at the Metzger Marsh woodlot about 6PM. Lots of warblers and thrushes! On our last leg of the birding, back in Ottawa County, we found #3, a gorgeous Rough-legged Hawk, perched in the top of a tree on the east side of Stange Road. After enjoying time with the hawk, now began the three hour journey back home, arriving about 11PM. 389 rewarding miles later, concluded the end of another great birding adventure.

I’m about to move to Zanesville & as the movers were finishing up today, I happened to look out my patio door to see my FOS Green Heron fly over or from the pond up to a tree.

Lots of Canada Geese Goslings, too.

Hope I’ll have some decent yard birds in Zanesville.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Summit Co--CVNP Station Rd American Bittern present this morning--Least SP at Seasons Road
The American Bittern first found by Ken Andrews yesterday was still present at Station Road in the CVNP early this morning.

It was in the small wetland to the south just west of the old iron bridge at the trailhead. It took about 45 min of looking from 7:30-8:15 but it eventually came out in the open offering stunning looks.

Brian Tinker reported six Least Sandpiper yesterday at Seasons Road and Hwy 8 in the temporary mudflat at the SE corner of the intersection. There were two Least SP present this morning, one with an injured leg, as well as six Solitary SP, a single Spotted SP, and two Kildeer.

Hi,

Purple Finches are on territory in the Arborvitae collection at the Holden
Arboretum in Kirtland. Really fun to see males doing display flight and
fussing and fighting over territory.

Corning Lake had a lingering Common Loon, Horned and Pied-billed Grebes, as
well as Red-head, Bufflehead, and Mallard Ducks.

The Ponderosa Pines near Blueberry Pond have Pine Warblers on territory.

The canopy walk and tower are not open daily at Holden. Gates open to non
members at 9 daily.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] American Bittern - Station Road Bridge (Summit County)
Yesterday (Sunday, May 6) at about 2:45 pm an American Bittern came out of the cattails in the small wetlands on the south side of the paved trail on the east side of the Station Road Bridge. It came out and caught a snake by the edge of the water to the right of a large sycamore tree that has a lot of dead branches at the very top. It went back into the cattails walking south.

I was standing where there is an old metal bar with a loop sticking out of the ground. The bird was confirmed later at about 4 pm by other birders. They were standing on the gravel bike path to the south of the intersection.

Here is a blurry photo sharpened in a paint program:

Subject: [Ohio-birds] FW: Black-throated Gray Warbler - Holmes Co. - No
After an amazing 18 day stay, the Black-throated Gray Warbler that was first found on April 17th by Mark Wengerd and his brothers was last seen on May 4th, reported to eBird by Cristopher Collins. Several people including the Wengerds looked for it yesterday & on Saturday with no luck. The Wengerds mentioned that the farmer who rents the farm will be turning his angus cows out this week so if someone gets there and the gate is closed it is no longer practical to go look for it as there will be a bull with the cows. Hopefully everyone that wanted to see it was there and got to see it. A big thank you goes to the farmer for allowing birders the access to this site to see the celebrity that was seen by several hundred birders.

Bird on!

Eli Hershberger reports the Black-throated Gray Warbler was still present this morning at the half mile point of the farm lane. The address is 3864 TR 366 Millersburg, there is a sign at the end of the farm lane that says "Black-throated Gray Warbler". The lane is open to drive back but could be a little muddy with the rain we had yesterday. The bird was seen on the south side of the pond that is closest to the lane but has also been hanging around between that pond and the pond at the edge of the small woodlot.

Good Luck,
Eli Miller

With a visiting relative, we stayed close to home and visited parks along
Alum Creek (Innis Park) and Big Walnut Creek (Woodside Green), with the
predictable results of lot of migrants in this first big push of
neotropicals. In an hour at Innis and an hour and a half at Woodside Green
we had

-Flycatchers; Great Cresteds in number (3-4 per park), but also a few
E.Phoebes

-Vireos - Red-eyed in both parks, with Innis adding a Yellow-throated, and
WG a Blue-headed

-Gnatcatchers,Kinglets - these 'warbler surrogates' continued in good
numbers at both parks

-Sedge Wren - reported by Bob McNulty yesterday, it continues at Woodside
Green, where we found it just north of the footbridge over Big Walnut Creek

-Thrushes - plenty of Swainson's at both parks, along with single Veeries.
WG also had Gray-cheek and Wood Thrushes

-Mimids - loads of Gray Catbirds, but Innis also had a Brown Thrasher

-Waxwings - pairs of Cedar Waxings at many locations

Warblers - 10 species at Innis, 14 at WG, including Parulas, Nashville,
Tennessees (common), Black&Whites, Black-thr.Greens (WG), Golden-winged
(WG), Blackburnian (Innis), Chestnut-sided (abundant), Yellow-rumped
(abundant), Yellow-throated (both), Palms (both), Ovenbird (Innis),
La.Waterthrush (WG), Hooded (both), AmerRedstarts (both), ComYellowthroats
(both)

-grosbeaks,Buntings - small #s of Rose-br.grosbeaks at both parks, as well
as 1-2 Indigo Buntings

We had 3 males, 1 first year male and 3 females all at the feeders at the

just one or two at a time. There is one male at the feeder this morning.

OK: This year,we have 2pairs of mature Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks + one
immature male of that species. In the 2017 season [and for that, whole
breeding season, we had two breeding pairs +three nestlings from those
matings]. We have a 12 acre woodlot immediately adjacent to our home yard
here in south central Huron County SW of the Village of Greenwich. What a

four adult males, two females, and two juveniles at my feeders, far more
than any previous spring. Other birdwatchers here in Granville (central

Birds this morning included 12 warbler species, 3 vireos, and a total of 62 species. This is a very nice yard. Also, the great horned owl chick was still on the nest, and is now about 8 feet tall.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Washington County--Veto Lake--67 species including Philadelphia Vireo, 14 warblers, 4 shorebirds
I recently moved to Vienna, WV, but may move to Marietta, OH in the next
few months. I expect to be submitting several eBird checklists for OH each
week. I've been eBirding for almost 15 years, did 6 years of bird surveys
for the forthcoming WV Breeding Bird Atlas, and am a former eBird reviewer
for WV.

I spent over 5 hours at Veto Lake Wildlife Area this morning.

Highlights included 5 or 6 tiny Wood Duck ducklings, 4 shorebirds
(Killdeer, Solitary Sandpiper, Spotted Sandpiper, Greater Yellowlegs),
Broad-winged Hawk, Great Crested Flycatcher, Philadelphia and 4 other
vireos, Swainson's Thrush, and 14 warblers including Black-throated Blue
and Northern Waterthrush.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Station Rd CVNP today
A short visit at a less than optimal time of noonish still yielded a few nice birds.

A v obliging Cerulean Warbler was singing and affording great eye-level views as it gleaned N of the bridge. I heard at least a couple others.

Only other warblers were B&W, Yellow and Y-R.

Finally got my FOS Baltimore Orioles there, 2 males and one that appeared to be a drab 1st year female (Sibley). Rather odd coloration.

E Phoebe, E Bluebirds, lots of BG Gnatcatchers. Chipping and Song Sparrows.

The GHO nest appeared abandoned and a photographer told me the nest had failed after several storms. I did not find any Screech-Owls.

An adult Bald Eagle made several passes and there were 2 Red-taileds around as well.

There were some good birds this morning at Lake Erie Bluffs with the highlight being a very vocal Kirtland's warbler. Also observed was a golden-winged warbler and at least two yellow-breasted chats. The chats were moving around a bit, so it's possible there may have been 3.

Kirtland's Warbler 1 A singing Kirtland's warbler was found along the Bluffs trail in the northwest quadrant of the trail. It was just east of the opening with a bat house. The bird's singing was the first thing noticed. It was a loud clear call. The best description would be most similar to the one in the Sibley guide of ; Flip-lip-lip-lip, tip-tip-chilip. It was in some dense brush and not too far in, but most of the time was not visible. I "pished" and it briefly came closer where I was able to see it. It was a medium sized warbler with a gray back and lemon yellow below. The chest was streaked with black. It wagged it's tail constantly and seemed pretty agitated. It moved back in and called a bit, stopped for several minutes and then resumed. Another birder came by and we had it sing very close, stopped a few minutes, and then call further south into the brush. We did not hear it again. Observation time was about 10-15 minutes. It was in the open only twice and then it was brief. It was an adult male.

Incredible two days of warblering at Magree Marsh boardwalk - given the leafless trees, the warblers were in full view and abundant - All the expected warblers, and some unexpected in attendance including:

Too many to count:
-Yellow- rumped
-Black-throated Green
-Northern Parula
-Yellow
-Chestnut-sided
-Palm
Multiple sightings of:
-Cerulean
-Black- and- white
-Black-throated Blue
-Orange-crowned
-Yellow
-Blue-winged
-Bay-breasted
-Magnolia
-American Redstart
-Cape May
-Tennessee
-Blackburnian (one flew into my face)
-Ovenbird
Single sightings:
Worm-eating
Kentucky
Common Yellowthroat
Hooded
Pine
Northern-Waterthrush

I missed the Golden-winged warbler - but there is still tomorrow morning…….

There were at least a dozen Swainsons Thrushes on the beach by the Estuary Trail as if they were waiting for a ride to Canada
Dozens of kinglets
There was a cooperative Lincoln’s sparrow on the boardwalk

I recommend that if you are in the area you spend some time at Howards Marsh - a new Toledo Metropark, several miles west on Rt 2 - it is a magnficiant 1000 acre protected area of marsh with a loop auto route and plenty of boardwalks and viewing access. On Howard Rd, near the Marsh, 22 Avocets were cavorting in a field.

Can you tell it was an inspiring two days and great intro to the migration season.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Meadowbrook Marsh, Ottawa County 5/3 Worm-eating Warbler 17 warbler species
The last few days I have only seen from four to five warbler species a day at Meadowbrook Marsh and certain areas I go to at East Harbor but today it was noticeably better.  It started with having 10 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks in my backyard where I live just west of Lakeside.  So I started at Meadowbrook and was there 4-3/4 hrs from 12:00pm to 4:45pm and found 17 warbler species including a Worm-eating Warbler.  I wasn't near the beginning of the park most of the time so I missed some birds others got but I was in the far northeast area where there is a grassy path that goes thru the woods that has three loops (like the letter M).  Most of the birds were on the ground and the woods were very wet and lush.  The birds would move thru quickly and some I saw later and some I didn't see again.  But I stayed in the same area as that was where I kept seeing them near the wooden Lions bench. Some I couldn't get pictures of. 
Warblers-- Blue-winged 1, Northern Waterthrush 2, Hooded 1-1st year female, Worm-eating 1, Yellow-many, Tennessee, Canada 1 male, Orange-crowned 1, Black-and-White 2, Palm 20, Magnolia 1, Ovenbird 1 or 2, Nashville 3, Black-throated Green 1, Black-throated Blue 1, Common Yellowthroat 1, Yellow-rumped -5.
I saw many Swainson's Thrush but only two Hermit.  There were five Rose-breasted Grosbeaks in the woods near the entrance to the park (before you turn left to drive in) that used to be the overflow parking lot just before I left today.  Also one Lincoln Sparrow, one White-crowned Sparrow, one Marsh Wren and one Blue-headed vireo,

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Great Day of Migration in Central Ohio (Franklin County), Cerulean Warblers!
I took my Ohio Dominican Ornithology class to Blendon Woods this morning for our last field trip of the semester. We saw many warblers, vireos, and thrushes, with the highlights being Blue-winged, Chestnut-sided, Blackpoll, Blackburnian, Bay-breasted, and Magnolia Warblers, plus a Cerulean poorly seen by a couple of people in our group. We also had great looks at a Veery and a Philadelphia Vireo. Upon returning to Ohio Dominican's campus, I found a Cerulean Warbler which provided close, eye-level looks for me and a few students. It's a great day to be outside!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Request for assistance - recordings of migrating Mourning Warbler songs
It is year 4 of this project and I am writing once again to post an opportunity to participate in a Citizens Science Project that involves recording migrating Mourning Warbler songs. I am interested in whether different song populations of Mourning Warblers (Western, Eastern, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland) migrate together or separately to their respective areas of the species’ breeding range. All you need is a smartphone with a voice recording app and some luck. The web page link below describes the project and how to make recordings on your Smartphone in more detail. There is also a link to the map with previous year’s results based on recordings from many volunteers.

https://mowasongmapper.weebly.com/

Here is a link to the recent national Audubon Society story on this research.

Audubon Society reporting
http://www.audubon.org/magazine/spring-2017/this-guy-mapping-how-warblers-migrate-just

Please send song recordings to the Mourning Warbler Sound Lab (jpitocchATanselm.edu).

I would really appreciate your help and contributions this year to this Citizens Science Project.

Had a male Baltimore Oriole on my hummingbird feeder yesterday , here in North Olmsted.I take the bee guards off and also mounted perches to the bottom by using a plastic pill bottle with holesdrilled through it and pieces of plastic coat hangers pushed through and then the pill bottle gets inverted and glued to the bottom of the hummingbird feeder. The orioles love this setup. Only useful this way with the bee guards off  until midsummer when it gets inundated by yellowjackets.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Magee Marsh today
Fantastic day at Magee Marsh & nearby areas (metzger Marsh, Ottawa NWR) despite temps in 80’s and a warm breeze: 85 species incl 17 species of warblers. I heard reports of Prothonotary & Yellow-throated but missed those. Yellow-rumpeds were thick but Palms weren’t far behind. A surprise for me was a Cerulean showing well at just a tad above eye level—what a treat to see it well and w/o Warbler neck! List of warblers below.

Other highlights incl another very cooperative woodcock right beside the boardwalk showing off for most of the day, not far from where one showed well last year. Three vireos: warbling, blue-headed and yellow throated.

Black-necked Stilt on causeway, an OH bird for me.

Another treat was an incredibly obliging Winter Wren right beside (or under) the Boardwalk—too close for binoculars.

Big numbers of brightly-plumaged White-thr Sparrows digging like towhees in the dead leaves plus a few White-crowneds. Found one Dark-eyed Junco on the trail off the beach.

Great Crested FC, E Phoebe (heard at Ottawa).

Activity was good all day and it seemed like warblers were arriving steadily. There was a magic tree right by the parking lot at Metzger Marsh that had at least 8 species of warbler moving in & out.

Water is high at Magee and only a few trees are beg to leaf out so viewing & photo opps great.

Warblers:
Blue-winged
B&W
TN
Orange-crowned
Nashville (good numbers)
Am Redstart (male at Metzger, only one seen)
Cape May
Cerulean
N Parula
Blackburnian
Yellow
Blackpoll
Black-thr Blue
Palm
Yellow-rumped
Prairie
Black-throated Green (good nos)

A male Bose-greasted Rosbeak at my feeder on Gildersleeve Mountain in

on the same date last year. Looking at eBird I see reports had been very

Lake Erie Bluffs Metropark, Lake, Ohio, US
May 1, 2018 6:45 AM - 12:15 PM
Protocol: Traveling
3.0 mile(s)
Comments: There was a good migration at Lake Erie Bluffs this morning, despite west-southwest winds. There were a lot more songbirds migrating today and fewer waterbirds. Swallows and blackbirds were the most obvious migrants today. There were also 237 chimney swifts this morning. Only 76 flickers were counted, so their migration is winding down.


Birds of note were two willets heading west over the lake.A migrating mockingbird was a surprise. We get them along the lake, but this was flying high and migrating. There were large numbers of vultures, but low numbers of hawks. the wind switched more westerly and may have pushed them more inland.


Winds were gusty and were west-southwest and changed to more of a west wind.. Flight direction was to the west. From 7:00 am-10-40 am counted migrants flying by the tower off Clark Road. The remainder of the time was spent walking the trails west of Lane Road.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Lawrence Woods SNP, Hardin Co. Migration switch turned on!
At about 9:30 this morning the migration switch turned on at Lawrence
Woods. First migrant was a Scarlet Tanager, then a singing Parula. By the
time I was out at 12:00, I had 55 species and dipped on three others that
were there earlier, or are normally there. A Black-throated Green Warbler
even came down and landed on my wife for a few seconds. :-D

List below.

Happy birding and God bless,

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Black-necked Stilt, Big Island Wildlife Area, Marion Ohio
Greetings,

There is currently a Black-necked Stilt in the West Pond on LaRue Prospect
Road on the east side.

The bird was originally found by Cam Lee.

If you come, and just want the Stilt. Park in the lot that is between the
middle in the West impoundments, and walk back from there. Caution the
ditch may be a little damp. If the bird is not on the east side, and it may
be back in the back along the north side, which is where Cam originally
spotted it. That will be the quickest way back.

Fair number of shore birds are also present all around the pond, you name
it, it's probably here... except for Dunlin. There are also Sora along the
west side of the pond if you want to park in the west lot and walk all the
way around.

No rails or bitterns seen or heard yet. But that doesn't mean they are not
here.

Happy birding and God bless,

Steve J.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Shawnee SP OOS weekend
Hello!

This past weekend, I was able to make my first trip to beautiful Shawnee State Park in Scioto and Adams Counties for the annual Ohio Ornithological Society Birds and Butterflies weekend. Originally, I planned the trip outside of my OOS function, but circumstances developed in which I needed to help lead some field trips, so it was fun to help some folks see birds they had never seen before.

Overall, according to folks who have been there for many years, migration activity was definitely running behind. Also, based upon what butterflies were flying, they are behind as well. There was a nice flight of Falcate Orangetips (all male that I saw), which I think is a bit late for these early spring fliers. Zebra Swallowtails were plentiful on Friday, as well as a species of Duskywing.

As for the birds, I would have expected to hear a lot more Ovenbirds, Hooded Warblers, and Louisiana Waterthrush considering the habitat. There were quite a few Yellow-throated Warblers, Northern Parula, and American Redstarts scattered across several areas. We had a few Cerulean Warblers at key higher elevations. Worm-eating Warblers were found at various appropriate habitats as well. Black-throated Green Warblers were scattered, but seemed very low for the date. We only had 1 Nashville in our group. Black-and-white Warblers were fairly plentiful and called and sang almost constantly. I believe that as a group, OOS guides found 22 species of warblers in tough conditions, but I have not heard everyone’s reports yet.

On Friday night, I scooped up Jacob Roalef and Cole DiFabio to try for Chuck-will’s-widow in Adams County. We heard at least 3 Chucks along Hamilton Rd, as well as 2 Whip-poor-wills. We were able to get nice recordings of each for our eBird reports. The OOS group on Saturday did not hear the Chucks, unfortunately, as the temperatures plummeted on Saturday night. Mothing was reported to be quite slow on Friday and was cancelled on Saturday due to the cold.

With the coming forecast of warm temperatures and S-SW winds, I would expect that migration is about to kick in to overdrive, perhaps with good timing for the Biggest Week, as well as those of us who spend a lot of time checking local patches. The leaf cover is definitely behind, so we may have nice views of the birds we do find. Let’s hope they don’t fly right past us as that biological imperative drives the push north to nest!

That’s all for now.

Happy birding!

Should have noted regarding Irwin Prairie...

There is no parking along Irwin Road where the Yellow rails have been calling. There's a parking lot for the preserve along Bancroft Street just west of Irwin Road. The boardwalk that starts from the parking lot will take you back to Irwin Road.

At least two, more likely three, Yellow rails were calling at Irwin Prairie this morning. The pattern was the same as two days ago - I arrived just after 5:30 but did not hear them until just before 6:15. The Yellow rails called without a break for about ten minutes then more sporadically. They were again on the east side of Irwin Road but only about 100-125 yards north of Dorr Street.

Todd Haggard gets the credit for discovering a single bird Thursday evening, April 26.

Numerous Virginia rails and Soras are also present, and Wilson's snipes are very active in the predawn hours with their courtship displays.

Hey everyone,

I was talking to a hunter friend of mine, and he was wondering what in the
world was happening at Zaleski the last couple of days...seems he was out
Turkey hunting, and there were more birders than birds. :-D.

First, was there something else going on except for the goings on at Lake
Hope?..Inquired minds want to know. :-)

Second, a general observation...It's Turkey Season through till at least
the middle of May in some locations, the end of May in the north...so be
safe.

I’ve been away on a foreign bird trip and was surprised to return to what seems like a delayed and chilly spring in N Ohio.

However, on a dusk walk on the MetroPark Bike Trail off Hudson Dr last night, I was delighted to hear the familiar “peent” call of at least one Am Woodcock followed by a few aerial flight twitterings.

I wasn’t able to spot any birds in flight as I was mostly blocked by trees but will try again tonight.

Pretty cool as this spot is near fairly busy Hudson Dr as well as Rt 8.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] BlacklickWoods-BigWalnut,4-28:PurpleFinch,RustyBlackbird,otherMigrants
I stopped at these two south Columbus parks this morning and found
migration finally starting to break through here. Lots of early migrants,
including some of the early neotropicals, but the surprises included some
very late temperate migrants. Notables for the morning included:

Ducks - Wood Ducks at both parks, Blue-winged Teal at Big Walnut
Raptors - Red-tails at both parks, while a calling Red-shouldered was at
Blacklick
Flycatchers - the expected Phoebes at both parks, but Blacklick also had
Great Crested
Swallows - small numbers of Rough-wings & Barns at both parks
Vireo - 1 White-eyed was singing near Ashton Pond at Blacklick
Wrens - plenty of House Wrens at both locations, but no lingering Winter
Wrens
Gnatcatchers - 4-5 at each park
Kinglets - all Ruby-crowns, with 5-6 at each park
Thrushes - Hermit at big Walnut, Wood Thrush at Blacklick, but this group
was scarce
Mimids - singing Brown Thrashers at each park
Warblers - Yellow-rumps abundant (30+ at Big Walnut, 10+ at Blacklick), but
also had Parula (BW), Nashville (both), Yellow-throated (2-3 at each), Pine
(BW), Palms (both), N.Waterthrush (Blacklick)
Sparrows - White-throateds abundant at each park; Blacklick also had
several Fields, Chippings
RustyBlackbird - 1 was singing by a flood pool along the creek at Big
Walnut, a very late date here
PurpleFinch - a gorgeous male was at the Nature Center feeders at Blacklick

I got a really good look at a blue-headed vireo this morning along Big Creek just north of Stumph Road. I managed to get a decent photo for my eBird report.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Burton Wetlands today
Hi All,
I had a fairly productive day today at Burton Wetlands (Geauga Co.) On the Kettle Trail, I saw 2 American Robins, 1 Northern Cardinal, and heard distant Blue Jays, Red-bellied Woodpeckers and a Red-winged Blackbird.

A small part of the Glacier Trail (leading from the parking lot to Lake Kelso) is slightly flooded because of a muddy pool of water overflowing onto the trail. On Lake Kelso, I saw 1 male and 1 female Ring-necked Ducks, but was unfortunately unable to find the Sandhill Cranes reported there (on eBird) on Sunday. Has anyone seen Sandhill Cranes there before, and if so, where?

I stopped at a few spots around the north end of Hoover Reservoir today,
and found migration somewhat stalled despite (or because) of the nice
weather. Perhaps most of the migrants are overflying us. Stops at the
Boardwalk, Area N, Hoover Meadows, the Sunbury causeway, and Twin Bridges
found a steady trickle of Ruby-cr.Kinglets, House Wrens, and Yellow-rumped
warblers, but little else for migrants. Notables included

Osprey - at least 4-5 were hanging around the platforms and bay off the
boardwalk at Area M
Red-br.Mergansers - at least 3 were still around off the Boardwalk
Caspian Tern - an adult was sitting with a group of gulls on a snag off the
Boardwalk
Cliff Swallows - at least 2 were hanging around the Sunbury causeway, but
none had returned to the colonies at Area N or Twin bridges
Parula Warbler - 1 was singing along Big Walnut Creek in Area N
Yellow-throated Warblers - singers in many locations
Field Sparrows - 5-6 were already on territories at Hoover Meadows
Swamp Sparrows - 2 were singing in the marshes at Hoover Meadows

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Ashtabula Co. birds
I went up to Ashtabula Co. today.  Started in Denmark Twp. at Stollaker Rd./Rte. 193.  Got savannah sparrows and e. meadowlarks, but no sign of upland sandpiper yet.  Next I went to Conneaut harbor.  Both gates were locked, so I walked out on the spit.  That was a good thing, because the extremely high water of L. Erie had virtually washed out the sand road leading onto the spit.  I was hoping for a big showing of Caspian terns, but only counted 26.  Also present were buffleheads, red-breasted mergansers, horned grebes, double-crested cormorants, 9 bald eagles, Am. coots, Bonaparte's gulls, 3 great black-backed gulls, barn swallow, and cedar waxwing.  Spotted sandpipers and bank swallows have not arrived yet.  I headed south on SR 7 and saw an Am. kestrel on territory in Monroe Twp.  Last stop was at Pymatuning L.  Found on the Ohio side were: buffleheads, hooded merganser, red-breasted mergansers, common loons, double-crested cormorants, great egret, osprey, 20 Bonaparte's gulls, 20 cliff swallows, yellow-rumped warbler, and purple finch.  Craig Holt, Lowellville

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Rufous-sided Towhee in Cleveland Heights
Hi everyone,

This afternoon we had a Rufous-sided Towee male under our feeders, here in
Cleveland Heights. This is the first time we've had this species in our
yard--we seem to be more location challenged than some of our friends--so
it was an exciting moment for us.

Sadly, we haven't been throwing seed on the ground, one of the precautions
because of all the rats in this neighborhood, so I doubt he'll be back.

Best wishes,

Steve Cagan
Cleveland Heights
Cuyahoga County
