Subject: [Ohio-birds] 1st Year Sabine's Gull @ Clear Fork Reservoir - Lexington, Ohio
Greetings, everyone!
The Sabine's Gull was still present at 6:30 p.m. It was actively flying between the dam and the Sailboat Club. Occasionally sits on the water for short periods of time. 1st Richland County record for this species!
Sabine's and Bonaparte's Gulls were starting to settle for the evening. Good chance if people get there before dawn, they might get to see it before the gulls head out in the morning.
If you park at the Sailboat Club, please do not block the gate and driveway. Park along the side of the road.
Good Birding!

Found in same area as previously reported;  north end of P 7. Sometimes
drops out of the wind north of the sidewalk.  Then returns to the trees
and drops to feed where some seeds and corn were left.

Subject: Re: [Ohio-birds] Legacy issue for publications
Hello Ohio Birders,

As one who has actually moved and downsized, I found a customer for my back
issues of Birding and The Ohio Cardinal. Any materials that are available
online (e.g. North American Birds) I tossed into recycling. My books are
mostly regional field guides that I'm hanging onto with the fantasy that
I'll get back to some of these places but if my body wears out before my
brain I'll be giving them to some worthy organization or individual.
(Mass. Audubon, or a grandchild if one of them shows more than a passing
interest.)

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Legacy issue for publications
I'd like to know what other birders are planning to know what to do with
accumulated periodicals. All of us will be moving along, some sooner
than others. I for example have 34 years of American Birds, 13 years of
Florida Field Naturalist, 25 years of Birding, and Birders' Journal for
15 or so years.
These are all valuable journals, and I'd hate to see them trashed
after I no longer use them. I also have 200+ books, but they are more
easily sold eventually. I am not interested in
making money on these but only making sure they end up in the hands of
owners who value them. I can also mail them to those who pay for postage
(not so cheap, I warn you), but frugal buyers can pick complete sets of
them up at my place in Columbus for next to nothing if you purchase
complete runs. Ask for details if you want. Call ahead if you're coming,
262-3595. Don't ask me to offer just a few issues just to fill out your
collection, though.
I believe it is important for birders who have caches of
periodicals to pass them along to the next generation; believe me, the
local library is unlikely going to welcome such a donation.
Eventually I plan to divest myself of books as well, from a collection
of ~500 volumes. This I'll think over, and I'll offer only a list of
prices--bargains--to those interested as requested.

Hello!

Late this morning I had a Ruby-throated Hummingbird visit our feeders for a moment. I getting on the mower, so I didn’t have my bins, but I was close enough to see it was a RT, and it appeared to be a female. I’ve not seen it again this afternoon. With no serious wind to contend with it may have just been passing through. A good reason to keep the feeder up until December. I’m not sure how late this ranks for E Central Ohio.

There has also been a LOT of Turkey Vultures soaring today. Normally I can pick out 1 or 2 BLVUs, but not today. I’ve also heard quite a few Golden Crowned Kinglets passing by.

Happy birding!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Chippewa Lake, Krabill Shelter in Medina County
The fall migration was evident when we walked at Chippewa Lake in Medina
County this morning.

Three warbler species were in the trees by the Krabill Shelter --
Yellow-rumped Warblers (several), a Palm Warbler, and a Common
Yellowthroat.

Canada Geese and Eastern Meadowlarks were in the agricultural field beside
the path to the lake.

Over 170 Turkey Vultures were migrating, taking advantage of thermals on
the east side of the lake. We spotted a single Black Vulture among them --
a bird we seldom see in the county.

Cormorants, Ring-billed Gulls, and a few Bonaparte's Gulls were out on the
lake despite a number of boats and people fishing from the shores.

All in all 27 species. Quite a nice place for a walk on a Saturday morning.

For those interested you can view our bird checklist on eBird:

Hi,

It would seem the White-winged Dove being found at HBSP has not yet been
reported to this list. It is being found at the end of parking lot 6 just
west of the park HQ

Birds at Headlands Dunes include Winter Wren, Carolina Wren, Blackpoll,
Yellow-rumped, Nashville and Mourning Warblers.

Wake Robin had good sparrows, mostly the 3 melospiza species, but found 4
ammodramus species sparrows only got cursory looks without being able to
see detail. Also Marsh Wrens along the boardwalk and various waterfowl.

Led a Lake Metroparks Bird Walk this morning at Lake Erie Bluffs (Lake County) and had excellent views of a hunting Merlin. Seen with a freshly killed Golden-crowned Kinglet which it clumsily dropped while trying to eat it, then it chased a Northern Flicker through the trees along the lake, then it swopped out over the lake to make three dives at a lucky passerine that made it to shore. This bird was seen about a week ago too. Today it was seen in the trees, often perching on the dead trees, from the shelter to the campsite.

Since the swimming season ended, have seen dc cormorants twice, sitting on the diving raft out in Silver Lake, fairly close to shore.  At least 6 of them, both times.  Will have to make a point of going by there more often to check.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] HooverNaturePreserve,10-13:WhitePelican,waders
I made a few stops around the north end of Hoover this afternoon, stopping
at Wiese Rd bikepath, the Area N Boardwalk, and Area M. Water levels are
finally low enough to create good shorebird habitat, but there just weren't
many shorebirds around this afternoon. Notables included:

White Pelican - an adult bird was swimming around near the east shore
across from the Wiese Rd mudflats

Cormorants - lots of Double-crested, with small flocks at many locations on
the reservoir.

Herons,Egrets - still some around, with 7-8 Great Blues and 3 Great Egrets
around the new shallows near the mudflats

Shorebirds - Killdeer in several places, though no great numbers. The
mudflats off the boardwalk also had 1 Greater Yellowlegs and 5 Lesser
Yellowlegs.

Woodpeckers - along with many of the regulars, Area M also had a Red-headed
and a Pileated.

Flycatchers - zilch

Vireos - Zero

Thrushes - a few Bluebirds and Robins, but that was all

Warblers - only Yellow-rumps, and not a lot of them

Sparrows - Song Sparrows in many places, as well as small flocks of
White-throats

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Ellis Lake Wetlands - Nelson's Sparrow
The previously reported Nelson's Sparrow was at Ellis Lake Wetlands this
morning. The bird was found in the patches of cattails beyond the patch of
willows to the west across the field from the parking lot.

I also saw possible (probable) LeConte's Sparrow. A LeConte's was there on
Monday (we met a birder who showed us his photos - thanks Dennis!), so a
LeConte's seems possible.

From: Cory Chiappone <chitanion...>
Subject: Re: [Ohio-birds] Shorebirds geauga co.
In response to Inga Schmidt and Matt Valenic's Geauga County eBird
observations about the current shorebirds being flagged:

As you may or may not know I now review Geauga and Lake Counties on eBird,
Vic Fazio still does review for the entire state but not as much as he had
in the past. Jen Brumfield also reviews Lake county with me as well as
other lakeside counties and scattered counties throughout the state, and
there are other reviewers in other regions of the state. Also there are
some counties that do not have a designated reviewer, so with more people
involved in certain areas this is why you may have noticed a variation of
when certain records get "confirmed" before others, it depends on when each
individual gets to them.

Since I only review 2 counties I asked Vic to adjust the threshold for
flagging (high counts and dates) which had been less stringent due to past
eBird usage and how much one person could keep up with. Vic has a program
that he ran for each species that adjusted its threshold based on past
eBird submissions. He said I could adjust them as some may not reflect
today's observations, species fluctuations, and more/ qualified observers.

So a flagged record does not necessarily mean it is as unusual as it had
been in the past (at least in Lake and Geauga Counties). For instance Matt
reported 100 Cliff Swallows breeding on the bridge at Headwaters Park in
Geauga County this summer which was flagged, although for this spot it is
not unusual, that was the only checklist submitted for Headwaters Park
during the breeding season. So with so few relevant observations for Cliff
Swallows I left the filter in place to catch mistakes such as entering a
count in the wrong column, new birders misidentifying Barn Swallows, or
when entering 10 hitting the 0 twice.

Also I believe some species could be left flagged when there are similar
species to ensure accuracy such as with Ross's Geese which look similar to
Snow Geese and hybrids do occur.

Lastly it is always great to include photos with your checklists even when
not flagged, as the photo can benefit eBird in multiple ways.

Thanks,

Cory "Chia"

My October 9th listing of White-rumped Sandpiper at LaDue Reservoir (with
pictures) was finally accepted today. Checking eBird bar charts for Geauga
County I found:

Last sighting for Stilt Sandpiper shows Last Week of September (so, 2 weeks
later than history)
Last sighting for Sanderlings shows First Week of October (so, 1 week later
than history)
Last sighting for White-rumped Sandpiper goes until the 2nd week of November
(so that one is hard to know why it's flagged).

This is an example of how your eBird checklists can benefit an understanding
of bird movements. We have many more birders out there today than even just
10 years ago, and our Citizen Science data is more important than ever. If
you are not eBirding, please consider doing so. There are lots of people
willing to help you get started.

I visited several areas along this corridor this afternoon, with stops at
Kiwanis Park, Donegal Cliffs, Amberleigh Park, and the O'Shaughnessy Dam.
The weather was mild, but neotropical migrants were hard to come by, as
temperate migrants carried the day. Included in the list were:

Vultures - small groups of Turkey Vultures at every stop; the gathering
roost near the dam had 62+ birds. Black Vultures included 1 bird at
Kiwanis and 2 at the dam.

Hawks - Kiwanis had a Sharpie and a calling Red-shouldered, while the dam
had a Cooper's

Vireos - Kiwanis had 2 Blue-headed and 1 Philadelphia

Kinglets - not much, with Ruby-crowns at Kiwanis and 1 Golden-cr. at
Amberleigh

Wrens - 1 Winter Wren was calling in the riparian woods at Amberleigh

Thrushes - nothing other than Bluebirds and Robins

Warblers - a few Yellow-rumps at every stop, but that was the extent of it

Buntings,Grosbeaks - no grosbeaks, but an Indigo Bunting was at Donegal
Cliffs

Blackbirds - the only notable numbers were 20+ Redwings and 6+ Grackles at
Kiwanis

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Mill Creek Wildlife Sanctuary 2017 Big Sit Results
The tenth annual Mill Creek Wildlife Sanctuary Big Sit, held this past Sunday at the observation deck, ended as a successful day of birding. The weather was nearly perfect, 65 degrees and no rain until the end of the event. Throughout the day we had 24 participants hailing from Mahoning, Stark, Ashtabula, Carroll, and Trumbull Counties, with some dedicated birders present for the entire thirteen hours. The die-hard contributors that stayed the duration until the rain came at about 6:30PM were, in order of their morning arrival; John Petruzzi, Shaun O'Neill, Jeff Harvey, Ben Morrison, myself, Shari Jackson, and my wife Denise. The average count circle total for the previous nine years was 69, also our 2017 total. In years past, 82 was the highest count, and 61 the lowest count. Four species that we recorded at The Sanctuary during the count, but outside the count circle were; Ruddy Duck, Black Crowned Night-Heron, Sora, and Palm Warbler. An amazing sight in late afternoon, was the sky blackening with Chimney Swifts. At the start of the day was Barred Owl and at the end of the day, the last bird was a Great Horned Owl. A big thanks goes out to all the other participants, and to the staff of Mill Creek Metroparks for providing the site, their support, the picnic table, and the port-a-john. The following is the list of the birds we recorded.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] dunlin - Geauga Co.
Spent a couple of hours at LaDue Reservoir this morning. Still a few
shorebirds, though numbers of peeps are shrinking. New for the
season were five dunlin in their winter drab. (One did still have a few dark
streaks on the belly.) Yellowlegs, pectorals, a few confusing peeps, and one
semipalmated plover. Also a scattering of pipits. Not quite a scattering,
just two that I could find. Lots of blackbirds and starlings wheeling around too.

As of 8:00am Oct 9, I still have a Ruby-throated Hummingbird at my feeder in SE Clermont County.  The red scales on the side of his throat show him to be a first year male.  Photos on eBird and Clermont County Birders Facebook page.  Keep those nectar feeders up for a little while longer - migration is not over yet.

Migration was somewhat muted around this reservoir north of Columbus, with
scattered landbird migrants and loads of boaters keeping down the
waterfowl. I stopped at New Galena boat launch, the Beach & Visitors
Center, Berlin Station access, and Cheshire causeway 7 boat launch.
included in the list were:

waterbirds - little unusual other than a few Pied-billed Grebes at both New
Galena and Cheshire

raptors - adult Bald Eagle and Cooper's Hawk were at New Galena

gulls - 340 Ring-bills on the beach, but only found 3 Herring with them

Flycatchers - nothing other than a few E.Phoebes

Vireos - none found

BlueJays - no big movement yet, with scattered flocks at New Galena and the
Visitors Center, totaling around 60 birds. Smaller groups were at the
other two sites up-lake.

Wrens - single Winter Wrens were at New Galena and the Visitors Center,
while 2 House Wrens were at the latter site

Kinglets - not many, but both species were at both New Galena and the
Visitors Center

Thrushes - a single Swainsons was at New Galena, where Robins were abundant
(60+)

Warblers - not many, but did have an Orange-crowned north of the Visitors
Center. Also had N.Parula, Black-thr.Blue, Black-thr.Green, Yellow-rumped,
Palm. ComYellowthroat

Sparrows - small groups of Chippings, Fields, White-throateds, and Songs at
several spots. Also had a Swamp Sparrow at the Visitors Center.

Blackbirds - flocks of Redwings at several spots, along with a long
meandering flock of 500+ Common Grackles moving through the Visitors Center
area. There were also 5 Cowbirds there.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] OlentangyCorridor,10-07:raptors,warblers
The Columbus Audubon trip to parks along this greenbelt in north Columbus
and Worthington found a warm, breezy day, with spotty migrant
distribution. We stopped at Antrim Lake park and the River Bluff area of
Highbanks Metropark, and I visited Whetstone Park before the start, so it
was a good representation of the corridor. Notables included:

Raptors - Red-shoulders were at Whetstone (2) and Antrim Lake, while
Red-taileds were at Antrim and River Bluffs (5). River Bluffs also had 1
Cooper's Hawk and a Bald Eagle.

Waterfowl - nothing unusual besides 2 Pied-billed Grebes at Antrim lake

Swifts,Swallows - swifts were at several places along the corridor, while
the only swallows were 3 Rough-wings that flew south over Antrim Lake.

Woodpeckers - good #s of residents, but the only obvious migrant were
single Sapsuckers at Antrim Lake (heard) and River Bluff

Vireos - 2 Red-eyed were at Antrim lake, the only vireos we found all
morning

Kinglets - Ruby-crowns were at many spots, while the only Golden-crown was
at Antrim Lake.

Wrens - Carolinas were widespread, while the only House Wren was at River
Bluffs, and single Winter Wrens were heard at Antrim Lake and River Bluff.

Thrushes - 2 Swainson's were calling at Antrim lake, while 2 Gray-cheeked
were at River Bluff

Warblers - no great #s, but good diversity, with Orange-crowned, Tennessee,
Magnolias, N.Parula, Redstart, Black-thr.Blue, Black-thr.Green, Blackpoll,
Yellow-rumped, ComYellowthroat, & Wilson's. The Orange-crowned was at the
southwest corner of Antrim lake.

Sparrows - Songs & White-throateds were widespread, but we also had
Chipping (Antrim) and Swamp (Whetstone)

Bunting,Grosbeaks - an indigo Bunting was in the pocket prairie at
Whetstone, while Rose-br.Grosbeaks were calling at Antrim and River Bluff

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center Upcoming Falconry Event
As a reminder, tomorrow Saturday October 7th, The Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center in Columbiana County, is hosting our annual Falconry Event from 11:00AM to 4:00PM. Mick Brown, master falconer, with his three Harris's Hawks, along with other falconry experts, will show their birds, up close and personal, providing many outstanding photo opportunities. Flight demonstrations will be held during the afternoon in the grassy area behind "The Center". Mick, as always, will entertain and educate you about falconry with his interesting stories. My wife Denise and I, would like to put out an invitation to the Ohio and Pennsylvania birding community, to come and visit us at "The Center" for this special event. We will be a part of the volunteer host staff from 10:00AM to 5:00PM. To those who have not visited "The Center", in reality it is a museum of natural history, with over 375 bird and mammal mounts in natural settings. Everything from a full size Musk Oxen to a Great Gray Owl can be seen, with a Passenger Pigeon thrown in for good measure. In The Ohio Room, the "WOW Room" as we call it, birds and mammals that have been, or are regularly found in Ohio, can be seen. If you were to take The Ohio Division of Wildlife "Birds Of Ohio" Field Checklist, mounts of 188 of the species on the list can be found at "The Center". BCWEC is located at 12798 Echo Dell Road, East Liverpool, Ohio 43920. It is also adjacent to and at the entrance to Beaver Creek State Park. As an added incentive for a visit, Pioneer Days down in the park will be taking place in the restored village area, centered around Gaston's Mill. Come on down and see us. You won't be disappointed. Of note; this is the final, open to the public weekend of the 2017 season, at "The Center".

Subject: [Ohio-birds] "Big Day" Mill Creek Wildlife Sanctuary
Thanks, Bob, but I would like to add a little more emphasis on the restricted access aspect of the sanctuary. Trespassing in the sanctuary, beyond the observation platform or beyond any of the boundaries is forbidden. This restriction is enforced by three police departments and violations are punished with significant fines. This is a wildlife sanctuary, not a birding destination, except for occasional guided walks and the "Big Day." It's the only place among the thousands of acres, preserves and trails in Mill Creek Metroparks where birds and other wildlife are not stressed or disturbed. Just one example of potential disturbance is the immediate flight of the hundreds of ducks of many species that feed and rest here when anyone even walks within several hundred feet of these flocks.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Mill Creek Wildlife Sanctuary 2017 Big Sit
This Sunday, October 8th, our tenth anniversary "Big Sit" will once again be held at The Mill Creek Wildlife Sanctuary observation deck in eastern Mahoning County. This years "Big Sit" will be dedicated to Jim Dolan, who left us in July 2016. Jim, an avid outdoorsman, naturalist, and birder; initiated and captained our first "Big Sit" in 2008. His presence, contributions, and friendship are missed. To those not familiar with the "Big Sit", a registered trademark of the New Haven Bird Club Inc., it is sometimes referred to as a "Tailgate Party For Birders". Basically the object is to count as many species of birds you can see from a seventeen foot diameter circle during a twenty-four hour period. During each of the past five years, our team has had the highest count of all of the registered participating circles in Ohio, with an average annual count of 69 species over the nine year period. Highest count was 82 in 2014. Mill Creek Wildlife Sanctuary is a 270 acre restricted access, permit required preserve, comprised of wetlands and wooded areas. Open to the general public is the observation deck, site of the "Big Sit". There have been a total of 240 species of birds recorded at The Sanctuary. The location is 2650 Calla Road, one mile south of Western Reserve Road, and 0.5 mile east of New Buffalo Road. Come on by and see us on Sunday.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] BlendonWoods,10-05:warblers,sparrows
I spent two hours this afternoon, after the rain had slackened, birding
around Blendon Woods. I started around the Goldenrod and Lake Trails, and
then moved over to the Cherry Ridge picnic area and the forested ravine
trails (Streamside & Overlook). There were plenty of migrants, though it
would be hard to call it a good fallout. Some groups, like warblers &
sparrows, were well-represented, while others, like vireos and thrushes,
were largely absent. The list included:

Waterfowl - Thoreau Lake had no Black Ducks yet, but did have 12 Woodies &
1 Green-winged Teal

Raptors - I had Sharp-shinned, Cooper's, and Red-tailed Hawks at different
locations. Also had a Barred Owl calling along the Streamside Trail.

Flycatchers - 1 Wood Pewee was at the picnic area, while E.Phoebes were at
several spots

Vireos - not a single one

Kinglets - Ruby-crowns in many places; 1 Golden-crown along the Streamside
Trail

Thrushes - nothing other than E.Bluebirds and Robins

Mimids - Catbirds were at several locations, and a Brown Thrasher was on
the Goldenrod Trail

CedarWaxwings - a small flock was around grapevines along the road west of
the picnic area

Warblers - 9 species, best being an Orange-crowned along the road west of
the picnic area, but also had Nashville, Tennessee, Black-thr.Blue,
AmRedstart, Blackpoll, Yellow-rumped (most common), Palms (3-4),
ComYellowthroat

Sparrows - Song Sparrows widespread, but also had a flock of Chipping at
the picnic area, and Fields, White-throateds, Swamps, and Lincolns at other
spots, along with Towhees

Blackbirds - very scarce, with only a single Grackle

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Conneaut, Mosquito L.
I birded at Conneaut harbor from 7:40 to 11:30 this morning.  Birds seen and heard included: wood ducks, blue-winged teal, common merganser, red-breasted mergansers,100 double-crested cormorants, bald eagles, common gallinule, Am. coot, pectoral sandpiper, greater yellowlegs, lesser yellowlegs, Bonaparte's gulls, great black-backed gull, and marsh wren.  Next I went to Ashtabula.  The trail at Walnut Beach was flooded out, so I was skunked there.  I took a look at Lake Shore Park, there were 190 double-crested cormorants there.  My last stop was at Mosquito L. in early afternoon.  The water is still too high there for shorebirds, but there were a lot of other waterbirds there.  I checked the pulloff from Hoagland-Blackstub Rd., the end of Mahan-Denman Rd., the causeway, and the State Park at the south end.  I came up with: mute swans, wood ducks, gadwalls, 150 Am. wigeon, Am. black ducks, ruddy ducks, 60 pied-billed grebes, 19 great egrets, bald eagles, 130 Am. coots, 14 sandhill cranes, and Bonaparte's gull.  Craig Holt, Lowellville, Mahoning Co.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] HooverDam-Inniswood,10-04:fewMigrants
A visit to these adjoining sites in Westerville this afternoon found a lull
in migration, perhaps not surprising with the southerly winds and warm
conditions. I birded from Hoover Dam, then hiked down around the edges of
the spillway, before journeying over to Inniswood and its woodland trails.
Notables for the afternoon included:

Woodpeckers - no Red-headed, but lots of other residents at both sites,
including a Pileated at Inniswood

Flycatchers - the only one was a lone E.Phoebe in the Hoover spillway

Vireos - none at all at either location

Thrushes - Inniswood had a late Wood Thrush, and Bluebirds were at both
sites

Mimids - no catbirds or thrashers at either site

Warblers - very slow, with Yellow-rumped at the dam and Black-thr.Green at
Inniswood

Sparrows - a few White-throateds have appeared below the dam, but none are
at Inniswood yet

Blackbirds - a squad of 300+ grackles at Inniswood was likely staging for a
huge roost further south

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Bird watchers from Oxford
I know this is not a bird sighting but I am trying to find the owners of a pair of binoculars. I met a couple in Provincetown Ma at the MacMillan wharf from Oxford Ohio that were doing some bird watching. Later I found a pair of binoculars on a bench on the wharf. I waited awhile but no one showed up to claim them. I know it's a long shot but I wondered if they could belong to the same couple that I spoke to from Oxford Ohio. I also checked with the wharf master, filed a report with the police and sent inquiries to a couple of the companies that do boat tours.

Any help identifying a couple from Oxford that would have been in Provincetown Ma last Tuesday, September 26th would be appreciated.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center Upcoming Falconry Event
On this Saturday, October 7th, The Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center in Columbiana County, is hosting our annual Falconry Event from 11:00AM to 4:00PM. Mick Brown, master falconer, with his three Harris's Hawks, along with other falconry experts, will show their birds, up close and personal, providing many outstanding photo opportunities. Flight demonstrations will be held during the afternoon in the grassy area behind "The Center". Mick, as always, will entertain and educate you about falconry with his interesting stories. My wife Denise and I, would like to put out an invitation to the birding community, to come and visit us at "The Center" for this special event. We will be a part of the volunteer host staff from 10:00AM to 5:00PM. To those who have not visited "The Center", in reality it is a museum of natural history, with over 375 bird and mammal mounts in natural settings. Everything from a full size Musk Oxen to a Great Gray Owl can be seen, with a Passenger Pigeon thrown in for good measure. In The Ohio Room, the "WOW Room" as we call it, birds and mammals that have been, or are regularly found in Ohio, can be seen. If you were to take The Ohio Division of Wildlife "Birds Of Ohio" Field Checklist, mounts of 188 of the species on the list can be found at "The Center". BCWEC is located at 12798 Echo Dell Road, East Liverpool, Ohio 43920. It is also adjacent to and at the entrance to Beaver Creek State Park. As an added incentive for a visit, Pioneer Days down in the park will be taking place in the restored village area, centered around Gaston's Mill. Come on down and see us. You won't be disappointed. Of note; this is the final, open to the public weekend of the 2017 season, at "The Center".

Pretty quiet but I did have a flyover Osprey.

A pair of Pileated WPs in flight always a treat. Belted KF. Carolina Wrens.

Only warblers were 2 Com Yellowthroats.

A couple of White-crowneds in with Song Sparrows. Catbirds still around (I had a few at Magee on Sat also).

There is currently a Cattle Egret in Sandusky on the Cedar Point
Causeway. It is on the east side of the road, south of the McDonald's, by
a black fence. It is opposite the Holiday Inn Express, where one could park
to observe the bird.

The Merlin has returned to its perch in the bare-topped conifer in Section G
at Greenlawn Cemetery on Romig Rd., just east of the cemetery flagpole! I
was sitting in the backyard this evening and a falcon flew over, headed that
direction. A few minutes later I got in my car, drove 3 miles and “met” him
there about 15 minutes after the initial sighting. I took photos at 6:52 pm,
so again it seems most likely to be found there in the evening.

The cool, crisp morning brought a modest fallout to this southeast Columbus
MetroPark (and nearby Reynoldsburg Civic Park and Big Walnut Park).
Nowhere had swarms of migrants, but there was a steady stream of unusual
birds, including:

Vireos - 2-3 Blue-headed at Blacklick, along with 1 Philadelphia Vireo
Wrens - 2-3 House Wrens and 2 Winter Wrens were along the trails at
Blacklick Woods
Kinglets - lots of Ruby-crowns at every stop, and also had my FOS
Golden-crowns
Thrushes - surprisingly scarce, with only a few Swainson's
Mimids - still some remnant Catbirds at both parks; Reynoldsburg Civic had 7
Waxwings - small flocks in many places; Reynoldsburg Civic had 30+
Warblers - 8 species at Blacklick, with the highlights being a female
Golden-winged and a male Hooded, both off the Buttonbush Trail. Also had
Magnolia, Black-thr.Green (5), Redstarts, Bay-breasted, Chesnut-sided,
N.Parula. Nearby Big Walnut Park added a Blackpoll and Black-thr.Blue.

Raptors - Blacklick Woods had 2+ Coopers, Red-shouldered, and Red-tailed
Hawks, while Reynoldsburg Civic had a Sharp-shinned and Red-tailed Hawk

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Magee Marsh & Metzger Marsh
Beautiful day to be out and about if a bit windy which might have kept the bird activity a bit low but I still saw some good birds.


Best was a little flurry of warblers just as I arrived around noon at Metzger Marsh. I suddenly found myself surrounded by a small mixed flock. I probably missed some as they moved thru really fast. Maybe they had just come across the Lake? but they barely stopped to find a few insects, chased each other a bit, then they just vanished in the course of about 5 minutes!


Black-throated Blue (at least 3 males)
Orange-crowned
Black-throated Green
Black & White
Blackpoll
Bay-breasted
Several R-C Kinglets & White-throated Sparrows


Earlier in the AM, the only warblers I could dig out were Yellow-rumped, Palm, Nashville, Blackpoll & Bay-breasted. Then I picked up an Ovenbird at the Observatory HQ's feeders for a 10 warbler day.


That feeder/water feature hosted a rather unusual grouping of birds in the short time I was there:
Ovenbird (as mentioned; not sure I've ever seen an Ovenbird at a feeder altho it was by the dripper a lot)
Am Woodcock
Bobwhite (presumably a released/uncountable bird but v nice to see so close & so well! Not sure I've ever seen a Bobwhite that well.)
Gray-cheeked Thrush (2)
R-T HBs were coming into the feeders also along w/the more usual suspects of Grackles, R-W BBs, Robins, Mourning Dove & House Sparrows.


Other Magee highlights: White-throated and White-crowned Sparrows, Tundra Swans incl a pair with 2 nearly-grown but still gray cygnets, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Yellow-billed Cuckoo. R-C Kinglets were abundant.


A few ducks but the only ones close enough to ID were Mallards & a few Pintails.


Numerous Great Blues & Great Egrets. At least one Adult Bald Eagle & an imm plus one Osprey, a couple Red-taileds, and one accipiter, prob a Sharpie as it had a v quick wingbeat. Lots of Tree Swallows flying low by the road to the Boardwalk.

I stopped by this MetroPark southeast of Columbus late this morning, and
found water levels high, but falling. A rim of mud was at Ellis Pond, Teal
Pond, and Mallard Marsh, but shorebirds were not much in evidence. Still
there were many other kinds of birds to keep one entertained, including:

Sandhill Cranes - 4 were at Mallard marsh, while another 2 flew over Ellis
Pond calling

waterfowl - aside from the handful of geese,woodies, and mallards, there
were also a few Blue-winged Teal, and small flocks of 6-7 Green-winged Teal
at both Mallard Marsh and Ellis Pond

Other waterbirds - Teal Pond had 4 Pied-billed Grebes and a Coot, while
Ellis had 5 cormorants

Egrets - Great Egrets were noticeable, with 2 at Teal Pond, 7 at Mallard
Marsh, and 2 at Ellis Pond

Raptors - Red-tails were at several places, and Coopers were at nearby
Portman Park (2) and Teal Pond (1).

Flycatchers - little other than a few E.Phoebes
Vireos - only had 1 White-eyed, along the Meadowlark Trail
Thrushes - Robins were common, but others were not, with only 1 Swainson's
at Portman Park
Warblers - scarce, but Portman had Black-thr.Green, Magnolia, Nashville,
and Redstart, while Ellis Pond had Yellow-rumps, Palm, and ComYellowthroat
Bunting,Grosbeak - 1 molting Indigo Bunting along the Meadowlark Trail; no
grosbeaks
Sparrows - no White-throats, but a Swamp Sparrow was at Ellis Pond

Hi All!


The 5th annual Ohio Avian Research Conference is quickly approaching, and the schedule of speakers is quickly filling up.

http://tuckercasey.wixsite.com/aacri-birds/oarc2017


There are a lot of great talks this year on many different kinds of birds from all over, and there will be a variety of poster presentations as well. If you want to improve your skills as a birder then I strongly encourage you to expand your knowledge beyond basic identification, and gain a greater understanding of their natural history and conservation.


Registration is just $35 for non-students and $15 for students, and this includes breakfast, lunch, and a cookie/coffee break, not to mention the conference presentations themselves. After October 6th prices go up and you may not be guaranteed food.


This year's conference is sponsored by Denison University, The Nature Conservancy of Ohio, the Columbus Audubon John Wilson Memorial Education Fund, the Ohio Biological Survey, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History's Dept. of Ornithology, the Wakeman Foundation and Miami University's Biology Department. The conference is endorsed by the American Ornithological Society (AOS--formerly AOU).


Consider joining us for a fun and informative time!

Date: 9/28/17 7:48 am
From: Jon Cefus <jcefus...>
Subject: [Ohio-birds] Sooty Tern - Reflections
Hello all!

First, I want to say that the following is a reflection of my own thoughts
on the recent appearance of the Sooty Tern near Dover, OH, which was found
by Kent Miller and seen by many of you who will read this...or perhaps
delete it. These thoughts do not necessarily represent the thoughts of
others.

Yesterday during a brief break from work, I was able to drive over to the
gravel pit at the corner of Lair Rd. and SR 516, where the tern set up shop
for approximately 2 weeks as far as we know. The previous day, the bird
had been reported as absent, and I did not see it yesterday. The
presumption at this point is that it has moved on, or something else
happened (Peregrine? Health Issues?). While there were some reports that
expressed concern over the health of the bird, overall it had appeared to
be flying and hunting well during it's stay and no interventions (as far as
I know) were attempted to capture and check on the bird. I think we all
hope that it grabbed a thermal and started a journey back to the south.

Overall, the experience of seeing this bird was overwhelmingly positive.
It was great to be close by when a friend found it and to be there the
moment it "magically" appeared again (was probably sitting incognito on the
tire the whole time we searched), and when more good friends showed up soon
after, which continued for days after that. It was nice being there on
Sunday morning when many of Ohio's birding community were lined up waiting
for the fog to lift and get a look at this beautiful wayward stranger to
Ohio. Many there also were reflective of the damage that Hurricane Irma
had brought to Florida, as well as reflective about the fact that a
wonderful Ohio birder who lived so nearby (Hallie Mason) was not there to
see it too. As one person said, "she would have arrived with a car load of
Amish folks and been thrilled to see it..."

The variety of skill and experience level of folks there was remarkable,
similar to the finding of the Kelp Gull by Ben Morrison, which brought
folks who were locals with zero birds on their life lists up to ABA Area
Big Year players trying to break records. There were listers, and chasers,
and local patch enthusiasts and everything in between. Whatever the motive
of most of the folks there, almost everyone was cordial and friendly,
especially to the local residents who had no idea what was going on there.
They were accustomed to folks stopping there to observe the Eagles that
nest nearby, but this was unprecedented. Kudos to all who took time to
invite a passerby to come over and look through the scope and talk about
about the bird, where it generally belongs, and why it was so unusual in
our neck of the woods.

As of today, I am aware of only 2 incidents of poor behavior at the site.
The first was a local photographer who took liberties with walking to the
edge of the pit to try to get closer, which was addressed by the owners of
the property and some birders who saw it happen (kudos to those who spoke
up). The second was more egregious. A birder/photographer from the east
coast took it upon himself to actually walk out to the area where the tires
were and take photos of the bird in optimal light. The photos are
exceptional, but the behavior was willfully disrespectful. Worse still,
the justification for the behavior was "no harm, no foul." Of course, this
could not be less true. There is very much harm that is done to the
birding community when someone decides that rules do not apply to them.
Ignorance can be claimed, but we all know better. We are ALL stewards of
birds and birding when we participate in this avocation. We have a
RESPONSIBILITY to be accountable for our own actions and behavior and to
speak up when we see someone who is potentially undermining the well being
of the bird, and the community who wants to see that bird thrive and
survive. This person also put the owner of the gravel pit in jeopardy of
being in violation of rules governing the operation of these sites, which
goes to show why so many land owners won't tolerate ANY kind of presence on
their property. The action was unconscionable.

I saw many photographers at the site use good judgment. I began birding by
taking photos and understand as well as anyone the pull of getting that
better shot. I still struggle with that from time to time. 99% of the
people, including photographers, who showed up to see the bird did what we
ALL know is the right thing: Follow the rules, respect private property,
and represent the birding community in the best possible way. Thank you to
all those folks who knew that getting a great shot did not supersede great
ethical choices.

I also want to thank the folks who were willing to write more detailed
reports of the bird's well being when they came to see it so that we could
do our best to monitor it's heath. Thanks to Tim Jasinski for taking time
to help educate me on what to look for if the bird was struggling, and for
his work on Lights Out Cleveland as he gathers data to make a case for
ending the senseless use of leaving buildings lit at night, which results
in countless bird deaths and injuries each year.

If you are one of the hundreds of folks who got to see this bird and
represent our community honorably, THANK YOU!!! We almost hit 100%.

Last, but certainly not least, a big thank you to Kent Miller not only for
finding this bird and sharing his find with all of us, but more so for
being a good representative of our community. Kent cares about birds
(among MANY other wonders of the natural world). He cares about people.
He cares about education. And he cares about our community. I am lucky to
call him a friend. Kent walks the walk...

Until we meet again in the fog anticipating that first glimpse...fare thee
well, wherever you fare.

Hello!

I had a few minutes available today to swing over from work and look for the Sooty Tern. It was not present as far as I could see. It’s fate, for now, will be fodder for speculation.

Happy birding!

I got a great look at a gorgeous immature Northern Parula this morning (power corridor north of Rt. 87 at the back of my pond). It's the first immature that I've ever seen.


Other migrants included


1 Nashville Warbler

3 Black-Throated Green Warblers

1 Bay-Breasted Warbler

1 Blackburnian Warbler

! Tennessee Warbler

1 Common Yellow Throat

1 Red-Eyed Vireo


There were at least 8 warblers that I couldn't I.D. (partially because I was fixated on the Parula ; ) ).

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Wilderness Rd peat pits for shorebirds, Wayne Co.
I was at the Wilderness Rd peat pits this morning from 8-10am. The water
that was pumped out several weeks ago is slowly seeping back in. Conditions
for shorebirds right now are excellent. Viewing to the west from the
eastern-most dirt road that turns north just west of the short bridge when
coming from Elyria Rd is optimal in the low morning light and the
shorebirds are fairly close. The Hudsonian godwit that had been seen there
for several days was not there. I observed the following species and
numbers:

Am. Golden Plover 35
Killdeer 25+ (estimate)
Semipalmated plover 2
Greater yellowlegs 1
Lesser yellowlegs 10
Solitary sandpiper 1
Semipalmated sandpiper 5
Western sandpiper 1 - recurring bird
Least sandpiper 3
Pectoral sandpiper 35
Stilt sandpiper 8
Short-billed dowitcher 3
Wilson's snipe 3

From: Tracy the Birder <winterfell.six...>
Subject: [Ohio-birds] Sooty Tern Viewing Experience
For those going up to see the bird for the first time-

1) Here's the exact location via ebird:

http://ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L6276896

2) Expect a long-range view of the bird. A scope or a good pair of binoculars is handy. The bird sat upon a pipeline at the gravel pit pond when I was there, though it flew around the pond area a few times (still at a pretty good distance).

3) Birding etiquette is not the only issue at the site. Apparently people trying to get closer to the bird can draw the ire of a property owner or even the employees of the gravel company. Staying next to the road where you park in the grass is advised. There was talk about this at the site when I was there, though a friendly lady who is part of the landowner's family stopped by and had a pleasant conversation with us- she and her young son got a view of the bird through a friendly birder's binoculars.

4) Those seeking good pictures should have a good camera setup with a long lens. Otherwise your pictures will look very suitable for fuzzy cropping, like mine :-)

Best of luck!

Subject: Re: [Ohio-birds] Sooty Tern update: please read
Thanks to Jon Cecfus for this important reminder about basic ethics in birding.

When Karin Tanquist and I were on-site with the Sooty Tern early Saturday, an individual walked from his pick-up truck parked along Bair Road all the way around the gravel pit pond until he was on the small peninsula of land that juts out close to the pipe upon which the Sooty was roosting. He sat down with the sun more at his back and took close-up photos for as long as we were there.

Unfortunately, we had to leave and could not stay any longer so as to be able to talk to him about this bold trespassing and quite flagrant breach of birding ethics in search of a better photo. In retrospect, I should have at least pinned a note on his pickup and regret that I did not think to do that. It is a good lesson for all of us to find ways to be constructive and pro-active in being good birders.

Kind regards,
Patrick Coy

Hello all!

It's come to my attention that some people are getting too liberal in their parking and proximity to the gravel pit at the Sooty Tern location near Dover.

Here's the ONLY place it's ok to be: right next to your car with it pulled off along Bair Rd. Not down the gravel road by the barn and not pulled in facing the pit. (I've personally seen these).

Please use common sense, respect private property, and try to represent the birding community ethically.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] sooty tern data
Folks interested in more than their personal Ohio viewings of this past
week's sooty tern may want to know its history in the state. We must
understand "history" to mean only verified reports from humans, which go
back in Ohio only over seventy years. On 5 August 1945, one was observed
over Mogadore Reservoir in Portage County, an occurrence verified by
Ludlow Griscom (Ohio Cardinal 28:4 p 166); note that this appearance is
not included in Peterjohn's "The Birds of Ohio." Others were seen in
Clermont County 12 and 13-19 July 2005 (same Cardinal issue p. 164); the
observer, Donald Morse, noted that Hurricane Dennis had passed close to
the Dry Tortugas earlier in July, the site where 20,000 pairs of sooties
were breeding at the time.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Info needed on Mrs. G. W. Bannon, taxidermist of Portsmouth, Ohio, circa 1888
I am interested in Mrs. G. W. Bannon's accomplishments in taxidermy in
the late 19th century. Her work involved a large exhibit in 1888
on the birds of Scioto County for the State Fair, which won a medal. The
local paper in Portsmouth reported that "Much of Mrs. Bannon's
collection is in the State Archaeological and Historical Museum in
Columbus now." In 1894 this collection was moved to the Ohio State
University campus and curated by faculty; it and other collections
formed the beginning of the University's biological collection, which
now has over 25,000 bird specimens. As of now the collection has 121
specimens from Scioto County, which is an unusually large one for an
Ohio county of its size, and it is not unusual for specimens from Ohio
to have been donated to the Museum without location data. Such is the
case for many of OSU's sandhill crane specimens.
It is not unusual for museums just getting started to swap specimens,
and it is possible some of Bannon's collection was traded with other
institutions. At that time in history sandhill cranes were still seen in
large numbers in their migrations through Ohio, and a fair number of
nesters could still be found. I spent a lot of effort trying to locate
an existing Ohio specimen of this species; there are lots of specimens
around, but finding one from Ohio was difficult. The curator of the
University of Michigan Museum told me they had a single Ohio specimen;
other data were missing, but it is possible this bird went to Michigan
as part of a swap early in the past century; it was hardly rare at the
time.
I would like to know more about the Bannon collection, which must have
been inventoried at some time--a time when cranes passed through
southern Ohio in large numbers. Is there an inventory of
Bannon's collection--one hopes with dates and locations of collections--
after many years, we have an Ohio specimen, and it would be fitting
if we could thank Mrs. Bannon for it. Any help would be very welcome...

Subject: [Ohio-birds] UrbanScioto,9-23:egrets,YellowWarblers
The Columbus Audubon trip around this downtown MetroPark this morning found
a rapidly heating day and few migrants. Water level in the Scioto River
was very low, attracting in fair numbers of herons and killdeer. Shore
riparian woods had lots of residents, but cedar waxwings were the only
migrant in numbers. I also made stops at Long St. dam and Berliner Park
outside the trip and found similar birds to Scioto Audubon, but with a
boost in raptors. Highlights included:

Herons,Egrets - Great Egrets were at every stop, topped by 6 off the boat
ramp at Scioto

Waterfowl - no early migrants, but we did have Wood Ducks in a few spots.

Raptors - Cooper's Hawks were at Long St. and Berliner, while Berliner had
an immature Bald Eagle perched in a snag along the river.

Shorebirds - river mudflats attracted 40-50 Killdeer, and Scioto Audubon
also had a Solitary Sandpiper.

Flycatchers - nothing except a Phoebe at Berliner

Swallows - only 2 Rough-wings were at Scioto Audubon

Vireos - not a one

Thrushes - a few Swainson's were scattered between all 3 sites, nowhere
common.

Mimids - Catbirds were common, and Scioto Audubon had 2 Brown Thrashers.

Cedar Waxwings - many were feeding on bugs and hackberries along the river
at each stop. Scioto Audubon had 50+.

Warblers - Scioto Audubon had 2 late Yellow Warblers around the boat ramp,
giving us good looks. This park also had a handful of Redstarts,
Nashvilles, and Magnolias. Berliner had only a single Black-thr.Green and
Bay-breasted.

Buntings,Grosbeaks - no buntings, but a Rose-br.Grosbeak was at Long St.
dam.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Additional Appreciation For The Visiting Sooty Tern
As one of the many birders that during the past seven days has shared in the memorable sighting of the Tuscarawas County adult breeding plumage Sooty Tern, knowing the lifestyle and the future probable travels of this specie, make the bird that much more special. A thank you goes out to Hurricane Irma for delivering the celebrity visitor to our area. Another thank you goes out to Kent Miller for finding this beauty, only the second record ever for Ohio. This largely pelagic tropical tern normally only comes ashore to nest. Ohio would definitely not be on the usual itinerary for this bird. For most birders wanting to put it on their life-list, they would have to travel sixty miles west of Key West, to their Dry Tortugas breeding colony. This is the western limits of their Caribbean haunts, with Cuba being the center of the normal breeding area. During the non-breeding time, they travel around 5000 miles east across the Atlantic Ocean to an area off the west coast of Africa. Pretty impressive! Here they normally spend most of their time resting on the surface of the sea. To put this into perspective, it was only 1125 miles that Hurricane Irma blew the Sooty Tern to the Bair Road gravel pit site. As could be seen when the Sooty was giving aerial displays, for a small bodied bird, the wingspan, up to thirty-six inches, was obviously noticeable, for those long flights to the African coast. Also, I am sure that all of us who recently lost our special birding friend Hallie Mason, when retelling memories of the Sooty Tern, thoughts of Hallie will also be talked about. Hallie would have loved this close to home county bird. Her beautiful place was only about 3.5 miles by the way the crow flies, from the Sooty Tern site. The Sooty Tern will hold special memories for all of us.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Birding and Citizen Science Survey
Hello,

My name is Paul Waters and I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Park Management and Conservation at Kansas State. As part of my studies I am doing research on the motivations of birders and their participation in citizen science projects. I would appreciate if you could assist with this research by taking a survey about your personal opinions of birding and citizen science. The results from this survey will inform my research that will enable citizen science project developers to better understand their participants and create or alter projects in order to better serve both birders and the scientific community. Your help is very important to the success of this project. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes.

Link to survey:

Thanks,

Hi all,
Ron Pittaway just released his Winter Finch Forecast for 2017-2018. In summary, food crops are great in Ontario so don't expect many of these species in Ohio this year... :(

...sorry. Just wanted to mention the ABA website's app which bunches
reports of rarities at http://birding.aba.org/search.php , giving an
idea of recent records of this species at Hawaii, Texas, Louisiana,
North and South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Kentucky,
Virginia, and Ohio. The role of the weather is obvious, and it shows
a clear boost that large soaring seabirds get from winds that once were
very unusual. Who knows if these oceanic wanderers will find their ways

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Sooties inshore
Sooty terns have shown up at a dozen US states, the most northern of
them reported ours in Ohio. Needless to say, these occurrences are
caused by the relentless storms moving into the southeast. In a normal
year, many sooties would have nested in the southeast, at the Dry
Tortugas off the southern FLorida coast. Ohio's sooty visitors are the
northernmost reports thus far, but they could show up in Michigan, etc.

From: Jon Cefus <jcefus...>
Subject: [Ohio-birds] Sooty Tern Discussion
Hello again!

Ok, just to be more clear on a few things.

First of all, I am aware of the laws around what can and cannot be done to
a migratory bird, but I appreciate getting information about that.

Secondly, PERSONALLY, I am not much of a pro-interventionist on these kinds
of circumstances. Where our responsibility, if any, lies with this bird is
well beyond my power or pay grade to determine. I tend to agree with some
who think that it will likely move on, although I am not at all certain it
has any sense of where it is or where it should go, let alone how to get to
the straits of Florida. None of us are privy to the inner thoughts of a
Sooty Tern. I am merely an observer and a person inclined to evoke some
discussion.

That said, it seemed to me we have a chance to try to observe this bird
closely while it is here and maybe learn some things. It is easy to show
up, put the bird in your scope and move along to the next bird, but we
should remember just how out of range this bird is and that it's likelihood
of survival in the long-term is probably not all that great. So, if
observers see that it is suffering and getting sick, then I see no reason
why a *licensed rehabilitator* who has gone through the proper channels
should not do what they can if they are so inclined and have contacted the
land owner, etc. I know that some folks have actually volunteered to drive
it back to Florida! That's pretty amazing.

Never for one minute was I suggesting that I would personally go grab the
bird and take it to Florida! I just want that to be abundantly clear.

The idea here is to learn and pay closer than average attention to a bird
that is far, far from home.

I hope this clarifies things for anyone who is wondering. There are many
questions here, but the answers are few, so maybe if we all try to add a
bit of information to the situation something as positive as the great
behavior and community atmosphere that has surrounded this remarkable
storm-blown vagrant will emerge. After all, I do think we all care about
what happens to this bird.

Happy birding!

The Sooty Tern caught a fish and ate it while I was there (several people
watched it do this.). Flight seemed strong during its forays. It "rests" on

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Sooty Tern information
Hello all!

In an effort to track the health of the Sooty Tern, it would be great if folks could either report here or on social media or in eBird how the bird seems to be flying and if you see it successfully gleaning fish on it's hunting forays.

If it's determined that the bird is not doing well, a plan to potentially rescue the bird will be developed.

Thanks for cooperating and happy birding!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Late, late Prothonoraty Warbler (Hoover Nature Preserve, Galena, Delaware Cty)
I held off posting until I could check my records going back to 1987 to see if I had any record near this. Shaune Skinner and I were out with the U.S.S. Hoover checking activity around the Hoover Nature Preserve as I also checked how the nest boxes were doing after many summer storms and high water. Near the confluence of Big Walnut Creek and the reservoir we encountered a male Prothonotary Warbler. We watched it in the edge bushes and then he flew right over the boat into Area N. My previous latest sighting was in late August. Whether he was one of our locals or passing through from further north is unknown as he was not banded.

To me, pale in comparison, were the over 50 Great Egrets, about a dozen Green Herons, 9 Red-headed Woodpeckers, 5 Black Vultures and about 50 additional species observed while we were out.

Now of course comes the fun part of the season, trudging through the mud and low water to clean and perform maintenance on my nest boxes. The season began with 258 in place but from damage noted during our scouting Sunday a minimum of 12 nest boxes are now history.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] 3-Creeks,9-17: cuckoo, thrushes
I birded around several areas in this south Columbus Park, starting at
Heron Pond and working south past the borrow pits area to the Confluence
area. Migrant fallout was mixed with very few warblers, but plenty of
thrushes, mostly Swainson's. The borrow pits still had high water, so no
shorebirds and only a few herons (1 Great Egret, 1 Green Heron). Landbird
migrants included:

Yellow-billed Cuckoo - 1 was foraging in the forest along the bikepath at
the Confluence area

Flycatchers - Pewees and Phoebes in several spots; also had a calling
Acadian near the Borrow pits

Vireos - Red-eyed in several spots, but nothing else

Thrushes - Swainson's widespread, probably the most common migrant. Also
had single Gray-cheeked and Wood Thrushes

Mimids - Catbirds widespread but not numerous; also had a Brown Thrasher at
the Confluence area

Warblers - very few. Did have Magnolias and Redstarts in several areas.
Also had Bay-breasted near the Borrow Pits, and ComYellowthroat near the
powerline cut

Buntings,Grosbeak - Rose-br.Grosbeak at the Confluence area, Indigo
Buntings at several spots

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Tale of the Discovery of a Sooty Tern in Tuscarawas County
I’ve heard from several that folks not on social media who would appreciatehearing the story I shared on Facebook. Two warnings: This was written about1:00AM after a long, long day. And though it can take a bit to prime my verbalpump, give me a keyboard and a good story and I can talk (write) your ear off. Soconsider yourself warned and enjoy if you wish. Well, 9/16/17 was another memorable, satisfying, enjoyable, andultimately thrilling day of birding this year’s Bobolink county, Tuscarawas.Jon Cefus  & I picked up Ed Schlabachand son and went to see migration unfold and see if we could pick up any birdswe still needed for our year in Tuscarawas. We were targeting ConnecticutWarbler, Olive-sided Flycatcher, Golden Plover, and jokingly (sort of)mentioned our ongoing hope of adding Ohio to the list of states recording SootyTern in the last week.The morning was cloaked in heavy fog but having Ed along provides ananswer to almost every strategy scenario and he brilliantly suggested hisfavorite elevated migration honey hole and it didn’t disappoint. We talliednearly 70 species and most of the day’s 17 warbler species on top of thatlittle mountain above the fog with warblers passing almost constantly overhead.We scored double digit numbers each of Magnolia, Cape May, Bay-breasted,Blackburnian, and Black-throated Green, and added Pine, Wilson’s, severalPhiladelphia Vireos, a couple Yellow-bellied Flycatchers and more, all with theglorious first sunlight at our backs warming the first meal of the day for themigrants and putting them in perfect light for us.On our way down the hill we stumbled into an out of place GrasshopperSparrow on the road away from any fields and shortly after I picked out a teedup Olive-sided Flycatcher, my 218th species in Tuscarawas this yearand one I had searched intently for. As is often the case, the frenzy of the first several morning hoursgave way to quiet woods so we moved onto checking water features primarily forshorebirds. The Screech Owl continued at Zoar, the Baird’s Sandpiper was stillat Beach City. And by the time we left Beach City dam to take Ed home we saw wehad 95 species all in Tuscarawas and figured we may as well get 100. Ed pickedout the Gallinule at Beach City Wildlife Area and our first pigeons made 97. Edhad a spot for Swamp Sparrow leaving us 2 more for 100. Winklepleck Road gaveus Snipe & Pectoral Sandpiper and a Meadowlark to spare and we headed toEd’s house with 101 birds on a delightful day in Tuscarawas.After dropping Ed off I took Jon back to his car and he said, I’d haveto do a write-up about our day for the Bobolink page. I said I would and toldhim I was going to stop at the Bair Road gravel pit to look for a Golden Ploveron my way home, “Do you want to follow me over there?” I asked. Jon said no, hewould head on to Atwood, and I should just call him if I found something new.Well, I ended up calling him.As I pulled off on Bair Road I saw a fairly large bird disappear behindthe pipeline that cuts across the middle of the quarry. It was just a splitsecond, maybe a Great Blue I thought. I started to scope through the shorebirdhabitat on the far side of the lake and was disappointed to not see a singleKilldeer. In fact, I didn’t see a single bird to even start an eBird list.Then a tern flew into my scope field of view. It was headed straightfor me so all I could see was its white head with a black crown and nape. Ithought “Common Tern” a bird I have searched for diligently and still neededfor my Tuscarawas year. Then the bird banked and I saw a completely black topside on the bird. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sooty Tern my brain exploded.Photo/text/post raced through my head as adrenaline fogged all my rationale. Igrabbed my camera which is a super zoom and tried to get a shot which is agreat challenge on an erratically flying bird. I fired twice and missed twiceand the bird careened out of my view finder. I reached for my binoculars andthe bird was gone. I scanned the whole lake which is not large, maybe 10 to 20acres. No bird. I called Jon & Ben and told them I had just seen a SootyTern but no longer had it. They headed my way, Ben 45 minutes away posting forme while his wife drove; Jon 5 minutes away and closing fast. Jon arrived and we proceeded to scan the entire shoreline from everyangle for the next 20 minutes no bird. I’m the only one who’s seen it and zerophotos. Not good at all. Jon & I talk through the options. Maybe the birdis sitting somewhere out of view; terns can stay perched for a long time. Butmaybe I saw the bird just as it arrived at this small lake; a quick surveyshowed the bird it didn’t hold the necessary food and it moved on to greenerpastures. What to do. We decided one should stay the other go check nearbywater: The Tuscarawas River, Atwood, etc.Jon says I should stay and he’ll go search . I say, “I already saw thebird, you pick the option you feel gives you the best chance to see it.” “I’llgo to Atwood”, he says. He throws his scope in the car, hops behind the wheeland suddenly I see the Sooty blasting right out over the middle of the lake.“SOOTY TERN FLYING JON!!!!! GET YOUR CAMERA!!!!!”Jon hops out and we both get great looks and some photos of thisstunning hurricane survivor treating our little Tuscarawas gravel pit like it’sthe tropical waters around the Dry Tortugas.Less frenzied posts and calls are made letting all know the bird isback and settling into a routine of leaving the giant tires every 15 minutes orso to feed before returning to the tires.Many local birders arrive breathlessly for the next 2 ½ hours allsoaking in the views of this dazzling visitor. Unfortunately, the clock didn’t allow for anyone to travel from anydistance to beat nightfall. Hopefully tomorrow morning the fog will stay awayand many will enjoy the rare treat of seeing this sleek black & whitebeauty right here in Ohio.You can never go wrong taking a close look at your local patch. In 2005my dad & I made the LONG trip to see the Sooty Tern that had spent the last6 days at East Fork. We were a day late.Today we were at the right place at the right time. Ben made it in timeto add it to his Ohio life list. Dad’s coming tomorrow. Ed Schlabach made itback to see the tern and picked out 2 Spotted Sandpipers & a flyoverSavannah Sparrow to be added to the tern and Palm Warbler I’d seen pumping itstail behind the tern to bring us to 106 species seen on a memorable Septemberday in Tuscarawas County.  I think I’llremember  #102 for quite a while.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Broad-winged Hawk [Trumbull County]
An extremely pale colored juvenile Broad-winged Hawk visited my feeding
station on Friday. I've never seen one so pale. It was almost completely
white except for the dark wing tips which were viable when it flew directly
over me.

An interesting sparrow joined the flock of Chipping Sparrows on Friday, but
I couldn't get a photo. It was about the same size but had a prominent
yellow-orange eyebrow stripe and a grey cheek patch. I'm leaning toward
Nelson's but can't be positive at this point. I wasn't able to watch the
feeders yesterday so I don't know if it's still here. Hopefully the flock
will show up today and it will be with them.

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are still frequenting the feeders.
