Northern Wheatear still being seen at 3:25 p.m. Very cooperative. Park at end of driveway. Bird is pretty oblivious to cars driving by it when it is on the woodpile, so don't be afraid to come down the drive.

Ohio birders have added several new bird reporting hotspots to eBird.

Check out new hotspots and changes by visiting:
https://birding-in-ohio.com/whats-new-october-22-2018/

I am in the process of updating the website with information on restrooms
and handicap facilities at locations in Ohio. Birders can help by adding
missing information.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Mahoning County Grebe And Merganser Sunday Trifectas
Late yesterday afternoon, at Evans Lake in eastern Mahoning County, we were treated to three species of grebe and three species of merganser. The grebe sightings were 2 Red-necked , 1 Horned, and 23 Pied-billed. The merganser sightings were 98 Hooded, 27 Common, and 7 Red-breasted. A total of 35 species of birds were seen in our driving loop around the lake. Over the years, in Spring and Fall, Evans Lake has hosted numerous rarities including Western Grebe, American White Pelican, Red-throated Loon, and Franklin's Gull, just to name some of the special visitors. Evans Lake is basically a little over two miles long and up to a half mile wide, with deep water at the north end. A spotting scope is pretty much necessary to see the birds on the lake. There are no public access sites, but viewing from the adjacent roads can be accomplished.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Dark-eyed Junco [Trumbull County]
Our first Junco of the season was at the feeders today. We've had as many
as 5 White-crowned Sparrows at the feeders eating millet. The small flock
of young male Red-winged Blackbirds seems to have gone. One adult male is
still hanging around, though. I also caught only a quick glance at a
possible Field Sparrow. It flew before I could get a good look at it.
Hopefully it returns tomorrow.

We also had 23 Turkey Vultures soaring together over the woods this
morning. That's a decent amount for here, on our property, so that was a
pretty exciting way to begin the day.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Common Redpoll and Long Eared Owl CLNP Cuy Cnty
Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve was hopping with birds today.

Most exciting was a Long Eared Owl in the Conifers to the east of the gate outside the fence. It flew to the conifers by the bridge then into the trees on the other side of the wetlands area. Did not see again.


Also, two Common Redpolls. Male near the Overlook and female in the center meadow by the benches.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Antrim-Highbanks,10-21:Merlin,PurpleFinches,Siskins
The Columbus Audubon field trip to these parks along the Olentangy River
corridor found a cool, cloudy morning that gradually brightened, both
weather-wise & bird-wise. We started at Antrim Lake (after I had an early
stop at the Olentangy Nature Trail), then went north to Highbanks River
Bluff section. I also made a quick run-through at the Scenic River Trail
at Highbanks on my way home. Notables included

Merlin - a small male was eating a songbird along the lakeside path at
Antrim Lake
Waterbirds - not much, but did have 2 Pied-billed Grebes at Antrim Lake
Winter Wren - one was along the river trail at River Bluff
Kinglets - both species at different locations. Ruby-crowns most at River
Bluff (4+), while Golden-crowns predominated at the Scenic River Trail (5)
Bluebirds - starting to flock up, with 10 at River Bluff and 6 at Big
Meadow (next to Scenic River Trail)
CedarWaxwings - small flocks at many locations; a not-so-small flock of 50
was at Antrim Lake
Sparrows - Fields still at River Bluff & Scenic River Trail, and the latter
also had Swamp and White-crowns
PurpleFinches - singles were at OlentangyNature Trail, RiverBluff, and
Scenic River Trail
PineSiskins - 2 were with a flock of Goldfinches at River Bluff

Subject: [Ohio-birds] AlumCreekLake,10-20: vultures,diurnalMigrants
I stopped at several spots along the shore of Alum Creek Lake this morning
before the wind picked up to levels that discouraged birding. Waterfowl
season here discouraged most waterbirds, and Neotropicals are largely gone,
but a mix of vultures, raptors, and diurnal temperate migrants could be
found. New Galena boat launch was the best spot, but I also stopped at
SummerRidge access, Cheshire boat launch, Old State Rd Point, and the east
Dam area. Notables included:

Turkey Vultures - small groups all along the reservoir shore, plus more on
the drive home
Raptors - Sharpie & Coopers at New Galena, along with a flyby Bald Eagle.
Gulls - Ring-bills at many locations, but also had 5-6 Bonapartes off the
dam
Coots - a dense flock of 165 birds was out in the southern reservoir off
New Galena
Flickers - good movement, with birds at many locations; New Galena had 5-6
BlueJays - minimal movement, with small flocks at many locations
Red-br.Nuthatch - still one hanging around the New Galena boat launch area
Cedar Waxwings - small flocks at many locations, picking over the last of
the berry crop
Starlings - normally not too noticeable here, but today had many flocks
moving down the reservoir
Kinglets - single Ruby-crowns at several spots
Warblers - nothing but Yellow-rumps, and no great numbers of them
Sparrows - plenty of White-throats and Songs, but also had a Swamp at
SummerRidge
Blackbirds - small groups of Redwings and Grackles moving down the
shoreline at several places

Subject: [Ohio-birds] LaDue Reservoir
I stopped by LaDue Reservoir (Geauga Co) a bit ago on my way back from Mentor after seeing reports from Bob Lane, John Petruzzi, and Jeff Harvey of good waterfowl numbers in Mahoning Co. over the past week. While I did not have big numbers, there were several rafts of waterfowl across the reservoir.

The largest number was Ruddy Ducks, followed by Mallards and Gadwall. Mixed in were Am Wigeon, GW Teal, Black Ducks, Lesser Scaup, and a couple of Horned Grebes.

Also seen were Sandhill Cranes, and a flock of 26 Dunlin. Bonaparte’s numbers were growing (30-ish) as well. A few Tree Swallows were over the water.

I imagine the front forecasted for later today should push more ducks our way. Tomorrow might be a good day to check that local patch for Scoters...

Happy birding!

Subject: [BRDBRAIN] A Gray Kingbird Travels to The North


Of possible interest to Florida birders, is the fact that a Gray Kingbird showed up at Leadingham Prairie Preserve in Clark County, Ohio this past Wednesday morning. This is significant in being the first state record of Gray Kingbird for Ohio. My wife Denise and I had the pleasure of viewing the bird for a couple of hours on Thursday. Apparently, or obviously, the tropical celebrity arrived here from the gulf coast with the help of Hurricane Michael. Seen by many birders during the past three days, it is still being reported this morning, Saturday. With the Ohio evening temperatures now being down in the thirties, hopefully this misplaced bird of southern climates, decides to head back south with a winter Caribbean destination.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Delaware County Bird Club, Monday October 22 program - guests invited!
Please join local entomologist, butterfly and moth expert Scott Hogsten for
his program Bugs, Bugs, Birds and the Web of Life.

A foray into the insects of Ohio, their relationship to birds, and the web
of life. He will touch on some of the other relationships like spider webs
and hummingbird nests.

Scott has been a presenter at the Midwest Native Plant Society and
Mothapalooza conferences. He is a VP at JP Morgan Chase and is a recent
graduate of the Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist program in central Ohio.




Meetings are held in the lodge at Deer Haven Park at 4183 Liberty Road,
Delaware OH, 43015. Doors open at 6:30 PM, programs begin at 7:00 PM and are
followed by reports of local bird sightings and socializing. Meeting dates
can also be found on the Preservation Parks calendar at this link
http://www.preservationparks.com/events-calendar/ and at the Columbus
Audubon calendar here: https://columbusaudubon.org/events/ Guests are
welcome!!



Future meetings are:



November 19th: "The Eagles of Panhandle Rd - 22 Years of Watching 'Patch' at
her Nest", Chet Snouffer.

Chet has been watching this Delaware County nesting bald eagle pair
since their arrival in 1996 when he lived on Panhandle Road. Their nest was
a mile upriver and the pair would hang out at the river bend by his house.
After connecting with Dick Tuttle and Dick Phillips, Chet started taking
copious notes and became the default nest watcher for ODNR.

Chet has 22 years of records on "Patch" the sole female and the five
males for this site. He will share lots of photos and data on their
incubations, fledges, success rates and the 6 nests they have built over
that time, including the infamous "Big Day with the Eagles" when he had five
birds at once competing for the mating rights! Aerial battles, derring do's
and much more!



December 10th: "Preview and Organization for the Delaware Reservoir
Christmas Bird Count", Rich Bradley, Associate Emeritus Professor, The Ohio
State University.

Rich will review the history of the Christmas Bird Count, focusing on
our count here in Delaware. This year the count takes place on December 16th
and will be the 31st annual count for our circle. This is a great
opportunity for birders new to our area to learn about the Christmas Bird
Count and how to participate. We will discuss counting techniques as well as
have some fun estimating flock size from photographs. We will also challenge
you to identify some mystery photos and/or sounds.



January 28th: "Chasing the (F)light", Tom Sheley.

As a photographer and naturalist, Tom has been chasing the light to
document the flight of migratory birds for many years. Join Tom on a quest
to witness spring migrants and resident birds along the Great Texas Coastal
Birding Trail, culminating in a South Texas Big Day. Tom's photographic
journal will accompany a dialog to understand the innate drive to migrate
and the challenges these birds face along the way. Tom will also share some
hotspots for those wishing to experience the exceptional birding in South
Texas.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Gray Kingbird no
The first parking lot at the unsigned preserve was full when I arrived near 12:30. As far as I know, no one saw the bird by the time I left around 3. Last sighting around 10:30 AM according to some birders alr there.

Area was well covered with some birders scanning by road while others walked the trails. Big area.

A small flock of bluebirds was over by the horse pastures along w/many Am GFs but alas, not a Kingbird to be found amongst them. I had an E Phoebe in the same area as well as a couple Ruby-crowned Kinglets.

A couple Chimney Swifts with small groups of Tree Swallows. One Kestrel.

A low-flying imm Bald Eagle closed out my dip trip as I couldn’t stay.

Pls post to the list or to me offlist if the bird is relocated this weekend. I won’t be able to chase again until Monday. Thx

The first White-crowned Sparrows of the season showed up at our feeding
station this morning. The changing weather has brought more birds to the
feeders. Eastern Bluebirds are using the Purple Martin houses for roosting,
so I guess I'll have to leave them up this winter. While moving a log the
other day, a large piece of bark fell off of it. A Gray Tree Frog fell out
of its hiding space between the bark and wood. I relocated it to another
good hiding place. Hopefully it makes it through winter.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Northern Bobwhite, Yard Bird #116!
I couldn’t believe it when I looked out my elevated window and saw it pacing along the inside of the neighbor’s privacy fence. (I count on my yard list every bird that I see or hear in or from my yard.) That lot is mostly concrete, and is open except for the white vinyl fence that runs only along the back lot line. There is an oak on another lot that is dropping acorns. I grabbed by camera and ran out, and stalked her until she presented herself for photos, which are attached to my eBird report.

These are city lots… but my own back yard is fenced and is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat. I have let gray dogwood, black raspberries, etc., grow wild along my back fence and my yard has a great corner that is secluded. Hopefully she’ll slip under the gap in my fence and find security.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Mill Creek Wildlife Sanctuary 2018 Big Sit
This Sunday, October 14th, our eleventh 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 once again be dedicated to Jim Dolan, who passed away 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 six 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 ten year period. Mill Creek Wildlife Sanctuary is a 255 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 246 species of birds recorded at The Sanctuary.

Jim, I'm familiar with the area you mentioned. FYI I saw a Northern Harrier back in January 2016 on the far west side of Columbus flying over the fields at the intersection of Feder & Hilliard-Rome roads. That really got my attention, because this is not a remote area at all. I wonder if the local population is expanding its range from the familiar Darby Wetlands general area.

I was surprised to watch a female Northern Harrier fly west across the road in front of my car over farm fields and back yards near the intersection of Taylor-Blair Road and US 42 in Madison County yesterday around 1 pm. I know the Darby Wetlands area isn’t that far away, but it seemed so out of context along a well-inhabited and busy intersection.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] 3-CreeksPark,10-10: Vultures, Orange-crownedWarbler
I spent the warm morning birding around this south Columbus Park, finding a
steady trickle of migrants. I stopped at Heron Pond, Elk Run, the
Confluence area, and the Alum Creek Bikepath up to the borrow pits. Water
levels, unsurprisingly, were high, so waterbirds were scarce, but landbirds
were in decent numbers. Notables included:

Vultures - 55+ Turkey Vultures and 1 Black Vulture were scattered between 2
roosts - one at Heron Pond, another at the Confluence area
BaldEagle - 1 juvenile was flying down Big Walnut Creek at Elk Run Park
Yellowlegs - yes I had 1 shorebird other than a Killdeer - a Greater
Yellowlegs at Heron Pond
Woodpeckers - still many Flickers and Sapsuckers passing through - had them
at multiple sites
BrownCreepers - one was singing along the Confluence Trail near the borrow
pits
Flycatchers - not a one
Swallows - none here, but had a few Rough-wings on the drive home
Vireos - Blue-headed at several spots
Kinglets - Ruby-cronws in many spots, but only 1 pair of Golden-crowns
(near the Borrow Pits)
Thrushes - 1 Swainsons at the Confluence area
Mimids - had single Catbirds at 2 areas
Warblers - best was an Orange-crowned along the bike path north of Heron
Pond, but also had Nashvilles, Tennessees, Magnolias, Black-thr.Greens,
Black-thr.Blue (female at the Confluence area), Bay-breasted,
Yellow-rumped, and ComYellowthroat
Buntings,grosbeaks - 4 Indigo Buntings were in the weedfield at Elk Run
Park; another was singing (!) at Heron Pond
Sparrows - small Chipping or White-throated Sparrow flocks were at several
areas; a Lincoln's Sparrow was in the weefield at Elk Run Park
Blackbirds - small groups of redwings and grackles were at many areas

Watched a mobbing involving titmouse and chickadees; downy woodpeckers in the hopes that we would see a warbler or two join in. Unfortunately, the warblers never materialized; however, after the harassing tapered off we approached the stump to try and find what has attracted the attention of the local song birds. We found a green plastic figurine with large brown lips, somewhat resembling a reptile ... Probably a character in a children's movie. Maybe the birds were after an autograph.

Nashville warbler
Common yellowthroat
Northern parula
Black throated green warblers
Magnolia warblers

Ruby crowned and golden crowned kinglets
blue headed vireos
swamp sparrow
Red breasted nuthatch

Had bay breasted warbler and magnolia in the backyard.

Cut birding short since I stepped on a branch with a 1.5 inch thorn; the thorn punctured my rubber boot and my foot. Ouch!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Out Of The Ordinary Sighting / Stark County
Yesterday morning, about 9AM, I decided to take a ride by The SR225 Bridge Area at Berlin Lake. The water level was about where it was or lower, than it had been when we had the excellent shorebirding a while back. Good numbers of birds, Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Double-crested Cormorants, Canada Geese, Killdeer, Ring-billed Gulls, and some Herring Gulls were found from south of Price Street to The German Church Road Boat Ramp, but nothing remarkable. Arriving at the boat ramp to sit and have a coffee, I see an older couple with a dog down by the waters edge. Shockingly, I see the woman walk up on the end of the dock, reach into a bag she was carrying, and throw what looked like a pigeon out into the water, with the man shooting what I would guess was a starter's gun at the same time. With the pop, off goes the dog into the water, after what was a Rock Dove (pigeon). The pigeon had obviously had its wings clipped, flapping hopelessly on the surface of the water, trying to get away. Inevitably, the dog got the bird and obediently brought it back to the couple, appearing to be lifeless. By now the couple realized I was watching, got in their pickup truck, and left. On my way home, curiosity of whether this was legal or not, over took me. I went by The Ohio Division Of Wildlife office for The Berlin Lake Wildlife Area on Bonner Road, and had to find out. I guess not surprisingly, what I was told was, that this is a legal way of dog training! Pigeons yes, Mourning Doves no! So if you ever encounter this situation, I suggest you don't watch!

Hi Friends,

A quick reminder that, if you have not already done so, the deadline to register early for the Ohio Avian Research Conference is midnight this Sunday, Oct 14th.

I'm very pleased to present this year's line-up of presentations and poster titles which represents a sampling of the great work being done by so many Ornithologists throughout Ohio. If you have not already done so, you can find the line-up at this site:

You can also find the link to register at that site as well.

If you, or your organization, would like a table for display please let me know so I can make the necessary arrangements.

Once again I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday, Oct. 20th.

Sincerely,

Casey Tucker

I stopped at two preserves in this township east of Gahanna, one of the
most forested areas left in central Ohio. I spent about a half hour each
in Jefferson Township Community Park and Boehnke Preserve, and found a
decent list of migrants for my trouble. Notables included:

Red-headedWoodpeckers - 2-3 were at Community Park, while 9-10 were at
Boehnke, suggesting an influx of these birds from points north
Sapsucker - 1 was at Boehnke, along with a variety of other woodpeckers
Red-br.Nuthatch - 1 was still at Boehnke Preserve
BrownCreeper - 1 was at Community Park
Blue-headedVireos - 2 were at Boehnke Preserve
Warblers - Magnolia, Black-thrGreens, and Bay-breasteds were all at
Community Park
Sparrows - a Lincoln's was at Community Park
Buntings,Grosbeaks - a juvie male Rose-br.Grosbeak was at Boehnke
Blackbirds - small flock of Redwings at Community Park, flock of Grackles
at Boehnke

Subject: [Ohio-birds] AlumCreekLake-Hoover,10-07: Sanderling,Kinglets
The Columbus Audubon trip to these two hotspots found a warm day with
spotty migrants. We stopped at the Alum Creek Lake beach & Visitors
Center, New Galena Boat launch, and Hoover's Oxbow Island and Wiese Rd bike
path. Waterbirds and raptors were very thin, while some landbird migrants
(Flickers, Kinglets, Jays, Sparrows) were noticeable. Best find was a
winter-plumaged Sanderling running around the beach at Alum Creek lake.
Other Highlights included:

Woodpeckers - 3-4 sapsuckers and 6-7 Flickers were at Alum Creek lake spots
Flycatchers - the only one was a Wood Pewee at New Galena
Vireos - a Blue-headed was calling at New Galena
BlueJays - no massive movement yet, but most sites had 8-12, while the
Visitors Center had 20
Red-br.Nuthatch - 1 was at the point at New Galena
Kinglets - Ruby-crowns were at several sites; Golden-crowns were only at
New Galena, but there were 7-8 of them there.

Thrushes - a single Swainson's Thrush was at New Galena, while Robins were
common at all sites

Mimids - still 2 Catbirds - 1 at the Visitors Center, 1 at Wiese Rd -
despite poor berry crop
Waxwings - small flocks of Cedar Waxwings at every site
Warblers - scarce, with a few Yellow-rumps at every site; also had Palm
(Beach), Bay-breasted (New Galena), Black-thr.Green (Oxbow)

Sparrows - White-throateds at every site, but no large numbers; also had
Chipping, Field, Swamp, Songs, Towhee, all at the Visitors Center scrublands

Blackbirds - small flocks of Redwings at all sites except Wiese. Also had
a few Grackles at every site

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Beaver Creek WEC Falconry Event Reminder
As a reminder, tomorrow, Saturday, October 6th, 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, will show his birds, up close and personal, providing many outstanding photo opportunities. Mick, as always, will entertain and educate about falconry with his interesting stories. My wife Denise and I, would like to once again 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 186 of the species on the list can be found at "The Center". A new addition this year is our North American Room. The background scenery transitions from Alaska to the desert southwest. Mounts range in variety from Mountain Goat, to Black-billed Magpie, to Caribou and Wolves, to Gila Monster, just to give you a sampling. For an added bonus you can take a photo with a Grizzly Bear. BCWEC is located at 12798 Echo Dell Road, East Liverpool, Ohio 43920. As an added incentive for a visit, Pioneer Days, just down the hill in Beaver Creek State Park, will be taking place in the restored village area Saturday and Sunday, 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 2018 season, at "The Center".

Subject: [Ohio-birds] "citizen science"
If a person does not play ebird "politics" their records won't be accepted
by ebird. IMAGINE THAT.
That's right.....this topic is not permitted on Ohio-Birds. Only info.
regarding stakeout, guaranteed lifers is. Right, like that is a priority in
the grand scheme of life.
I've birder 45 years, & guess what, according to ebird I can't i.d. an
adult LBBG. I wonder if OSU will give me a refund for that ornithology
course I took. : < )
Good luck "playing the game"

Brown Creeper - 1 was in the pine woods at Gahanna Woods
Flycatchers - E.WoodPewee at Blacklick Ridge; E.Phoebes at Gahanna Woods &
Blacklick Ridge
Vireos - Blue-headed at Gahanna Woods
Kinglets - no Golden-crowns yet, but 2-3 Ruby-crowns were at Gahanna Woods
Thrushes - 1-2 Swainsons at Gahanna Woods
Mimids - still had 3-4 Catbirds at Gahanna Woods
Warblers - Orange-crowned was just east of the parking area at Gahanna
Woods; that park also had Magnolia, Bay-breasted, and Black-thr.Green.
BlacklickRidge had Magnolia, Black&White, Blackburnian, Redstart, and
Black-thr.Green
Buntings,Grosbeaks - Gahanna Woods had 4 Indigo Buntings along the scrubby

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Ohio Avian Research Conference 2018
Hi Folks,


A quick reminder that the deadline to register early for the Ohio Avian Research Conference is Sunday, October 14th.


I'm really pleased to present the line-up of presentations that we have as part of this year's conference. There is an informal theme for this year'presentations of "Ornithology Over Time: From Preliminary Data to Long-term Studies": http://tuckercasey.wixsite.com/aacri-birds/oarc2018


There is something here for all bird enthusiasts, whether you're interested in conservation, education, recreational birding, or just ornithology in general. There are a lot of people doing exciting conservation and research in Ohio and here is your chance to learn directly from them. This is also a great way to recruit potential presenters for your Audubon Chapter or local bird club meetings.


Consider attending the Ohio Avian Research Conference on Saturday, Oct. 20th on the beautiful campus of Denison University in idyllic Granville, Ohio.


I hope to see you there!


Casey Tucker

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Knox Lake (Knox Co.) rosette spoonbill
I was at Knox Lake at 7:45 a.m. today. I did not see the Spoonbill but did
see at least 8 Great Egrets. It is quite possible that the spoonbill
remains there. The northeast area of the lake is only accessible by boat &
there are areas where a "heron" could hide. One place to scope the lake is
at Knox Lake at the north side of the lake. There are pulloffs along the
road that people use to fish there. This is probably the best place to
'scope the north area of the lake from. If a person continues east along
Knox Lake Road & takes the first right turn onto Armentrout Road, & then
continues to an intersection, then turns right onto Old Mansfield Road, a
person continues until they come to a parking lot alongside Knox Lake. The
other side of the island at the northeast side of the lake can be 'scoped
here & the shoreline at the north side of the lake. If a person continues
south on Armentrout Road & then turns right onto, I believe it is
Cunningham Road ( sign there for the Knox Lake marina), a person arrives at
the marina & a parking lot where the south area of the lake can be 'scoped.
Just because I didn't see the spoonbill there this a.m. doesn't mean it is
not still there. The person who found the spoonbill yesterday was kayaking
at the north area of the lake. It might take some patience for the bird to
come out into the open to be seen.
I'm hoping the spoonbill roams to one of the Richland County reservoirs. :
< )
Get out there & find yourself some "good" birds. Don't camp on your
computer, waiting for someone to find you a stake-out guarateed lifer.
I did hear a sandhill crane while I was at Knox Lake rd. at the north side
of the lake this a.m.
Good birding,
John Herman

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Ovenbird at cookout for 4 hours
Fellow birders,

This afternoon, at our Perry County cookout, a ovenbird showed up on and off for over four hours. It was twice seen perched in trees next to the patio, and several times on the ground. I’ve had cookouts here for over 40 years, and have had a lot of birds drop in, but never an ovenbird. There are multiple feeders and suet cakes, but I’ve never known an ovenbird to visit a feeder. This house is definitely in the woods, and ovenbirds actually nest here, only about 200 yards away, but I’ve never seen them this close to the house. If anyone has an opinion about this, 8 would love to hear it.
Speaking of birds, this was the last day of September (you knew that), so we made an effort to add to our already extensive yard list for the month. At over 70 already, we didn’t expect much more, but hit the jackpot with 8 additional species for me and 9 for Vicki Derr. An amazing day Red breasted nuthatch, white throated sparrow, sapsucker, gray cheeked thrush, yellow rumpled warbler, blue headed vireo, and more. Needless to say, a very nice birding day. And, as I’ve said before, this is a very nice yard.

Hi all,

Beth and I spent a few hours exploring the park today, hoping for fall
passerine migrants--not much in evidence. The main migrants here a handful
of late Monarch butterflies (this was the best year for Monarchs that we
have seen for a long time--I hope there will be sufficient woods when their
descendants arrive in Morelos)

There are lots of good late summer and autumn wildflowers--the great meadow
has really come a long way--thanks go to the people who have worked on this.

Here are the birds we saw or heard:

Canada Goose

71

Mallard

6

Domestic ducks

2

Mourning Dove

1

Double-crested Cormorant

24

Great Blue Heron

1

Turkey Vulture

2

Cooper's Hawk

2

Red-tailed Hawk

1

Red-headed Woodpecker

Red-bellied Woodpecker

Blue Jay

American Robin

Subject: [Ohio-birds] BlacklickWoods,9-29:Red-br.Nuthatch,Kinglet,warblers
I birded this southeast Columbus MetroPark this morning, just after a stop
at nearby reynoldsburg Civic Park, finding some migrants at both, though no
big numbers at either. At Balcklick, one had to work hard to find a few
small flocks; about the only things easy were Robins and woodpeckers.
Notables for both included:

Raptors - Reynoldsburg Civic had a calling Red-shouldered, while Blacklick
Woods had a Coopers
Woodpeckers - good #s of Flickers at both (4,6), and Reynoldsburg Civic had
a sapsucker
Flycatchers - not a one
Red-br.Nuthatch - 1 was near the Nature Center at Blacklick Woods
Kinglet - my FOS Ruby-crown was near the Ash grove picnic area in Blacklick
Woods
Vireos - nothing
Thrushes - Blacklick Woods had 2 Wood Thrushes and 2-3 Swainsons, along
with 5-6 Bluebirds
Warblers - Black-thr.Greens led the pack, with 3 at each park, but
Magnolias and Tennessees were also at both. Blacklick Woods also had a
Nashville, Ovenbird, Hooded, Redstart, and 2 ComYellowthroats, while
Reynoldsburg Civic chipped in a Blackpoll.
Grosbeaks,Buntings - nothing
Blackbirds - a few small groups of grackles and Redwings at each park
Sparrows - a Swamp Sparrow was in the meadow near the Blacklick Woods
Nature Center

From this morning 9/29

I normally wouldn't post a RHW but noted that it was only the third
checklist that included it at FM.

If anyone is interested, the bird was an immature sighted along the west
woodland edge of the power lines that parallel the woodland path, not too
far away from the tall transmitting tower.

31 species total, a few warblers including Tennessee, Magnolia and Palm. A
few sparrows including Lincoln's and Swamp.

Also FOY (for me) White-throated sparrows

Good birding.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center Upcoming Falconry Event
Next Saturday, October 6th, 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, will show his birds, up close and personal, providing many outstanding photo opportunities. Mick, as always, will entertain and educate about falconry with his interesting stories. My wife Denise and I, would like to once again 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 186 of the species on the list can be found at "The Center". A new addition this year is our North American Room. The background scenery transitions from Alaska to the desert southwest. Mounts range in variety from Mountain Goat, to Black-billed Magpie, to Caribou and Wolves, to Gila Monster, just to give you a sampling. For an added bonus you can take a photo with a Grizzly Bear. BCWEC is located at 12798 Echo Dell Road, East Liverpool, Ohio 43920. As an added incentive for a visit, Pioneer Days, just down the hill in Beaver Creek State 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 2018 season, at "The Center".

larger than the nearby adult ring-billed gulls, had a mantle that was
noticeably darker than that of the nearby ad. ring-billed's, had
gray-greenish legs, and a brownish (dirty) hind neck. The back color was
not as dark as that of an adult lesser black-backed gull's. I saw this gull
from ~ 150 feet in cloudy, but good lighting conditions.
Ideally, someone relatively close needs to see this thing, before birders
drive multiple hours to see it. I feel confident about the i.d. but you
might wait until others confirm the i.d. I have limited experience with
California gull but have seen an adult in winter plumage.
There is a possibility that this gull might be a hybrid between a LBBG and
something else.
Good birding,
John Herman

I still had 1 possibly 2 hummers in my yard as of last evening. I am hoping
they took off last night. I have had them as late as October 5th in
previous years so don't take your feeders down yet.

We too, had a young female ruby throat today.
I was working this afternoon to dead head my zinnias
and she keep bombing me. We still have one feeder out.
I checked my yard list and in 2016 we had one on 10/01
so it’s a bit early to store all the feeders for winter.

Also, I was at Southwest Hospital about noon and witnessed a
bald eagle flying overhead.

Good birding

Birding in the rain isn't so bad. And you can help nature: the mosquitoes loved coming under the umbrella to get out of the rain. If you decide you don't want to share your umbrella with our flying buddies, you can lift and lower the umbrella repeatedly and quickly, creating a draft which the little guys resent. Of course, you tend to get a little wet when you do this.
The pet trail was active; birding from the nature center porch was fruitful, birding the snakeroot plants from the blinds was very good, and no umbrella to hold.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Alum-Hoover,9-23: Yellow-thr.Warbler,PurpleFinch
I stopped at several areas of north Hoover Reservoir and south Alum Creek
Lake looking for migrant flocks. I started at Oxbow Rd on Hoover, went
west to New Galena and Plumb Rd accesses at Alum Creek lake, then came back
to Hoover for the Wiese Rd bike path. Each site had some migrants, but
nowhere had large numbers. Notables included:

Raptors - Oxbow had 2 Cooper's Hawks, while New Galena and Plumb Rd each
had a Sharp-shinned Hawk. New Galena also had a pair of adult Bald Eagles
perched in a tree across from the boat launch ramp.

Hummingbird - 1 buzzed by at the Wiese Rd bike path

Woodpeckers - still no sapsuckers, but still good #s of Flickers at most
stops

Flycatchers - E.WoodPewees at New Galena and Wiese; Leasts were at Oxbow
and New Galena, while Acadians were at New Galena and Wiese Rd. None were
common.

Vireos - the only vireo was a Red-eyed at oxbow Island

Thrushes - Swainsons were at nearly every stop, but rarely more than 1-2.

Mimids - Catbirds still common everywhere, and New Galena also had a
lingering Brown Thrasher

Cedar Waxwings - small flocks were at New Galena (35) and Wiese Rd (20)

Blackbirds - the only sizeable flocks were flying over Oxbow Island early
(65 grackles, 35 Redwings)

Warblers - best was a late Yellow-throated at Oxbow Island, but also had
many Magnolias, and Nashville, Tennessee, Parula, Cape Mays,
Chestnut-sided, Blackpolls, Bay-breasted, Redstarts, Black-thr.Greens, and
Com.Yellowthroats

Buntings,Grosbeaks - a single Indigo Bunting and 2 Rose-br.grosbeaks were
along the Wiese rd bike path

Finches - a Purple Finch flew past the New Galena boat launch, calling as
it went.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Chillicothe,9-22: migrants
I made the trek down to the un-glaciated edge around Chillicothe to see if
the edge forest blocks might concentrate migrant fallout, and met with
mixed results. I stopped at Kinnikinnick Preserve, the north part of Great
Seal State Park, several riverside parks in Chillicothe (Gunlock Preserve &
Yoctangee), and the Buzzard'sRoost Preserve west of town. All had some
migrant landbirds, but Great Seal and Buzzard'sRoost, the largest forest
blocks, had the best flocks. Notables included:

Raptors - Great Seal had Sharpie & Cooper's, while Buzzardsroost had
Red-shouldered & Harrier

Hummer - a male Ruby-throat was still around Kinnikinnick

Woodpeckers - no sapsuckers yet, but good #s of Flickers included 9-10 at
Great Seal. Great Seal had a Pileated, while Buzzardsroost had 2.

Flycatchers - E.WoodPewees common at all stops. Great Seal had a Least,
while Buzzardsroost had 2 Acadians and another Least. Phoebes were at all
stops, but not common.

Vireos - Red-eyed were common at Great Seal and Buzzardsroost (4-5 each),
while both sites also had Philadelphia Vireos. Gunlock chipped in a
White-eyed, while Kinnikinnick had a singing Warbling

Red-br.Nuthatch - had single calling birds at both Great Seal and
Buzzardsroost

Thrushes - Swainsons and Woods were at both Great Seal and Buzzardsroost,
though in small numbers
Mimids - Catbirds were abundant at all stops, but Great Seal also had 3-4
Brown Thrashers

Waxwings - flocks of Cedar Waxwings were at Kinnikinnick and Great Seal

Blackbirds - flocks of Redwings, perhaps 300 birds, were moving through the
marshes at Kinnikinnick, and I noted overflying flocks at several places
along US 23

Warblers - Magnolias, Redstarts, and Bl.thr.Greens were widespread and
common; Great Seal had 8-9 Magnolias, while Buzzardsroost had 5-6 BTGs.
Also had Parula, Nashville, Tennessees, Blackpolls, Blackburnians,
Chestnut-sided, and ComYellowthroats

Tanagers - Scarlets were at Great Seal & Buzzardsroost, while the latter
also had a Summer

Buntings,Grosbeaks - Indigo Buntings were at Kinnikinnick and Great Seal,
while Rose-br.Grosbeaks were at those spots and Buzzardsroost, with 3 at
Kinnikinnick
