Subject: [Ohio-birds] Larking around at Killdeer Plains (Marion/Wyandot)
Greetings!

The shorebirds were pretty few and far between today at Killdeer Plains
today. My wife and I pretty much stayed along the Marion/Wyandot county
line.

When we got to Morral-Kirkpatrick Rd W, almost to where old above ground
reservoir can be seen from the road, a sparrow sized bird flushed from the
Marion side of the Road to the Wyandot side of the road. I initially
thought it was something like a horned Lark or song Sparrow or something
like that, But then I noticed white spots on the sides of the bottom of the
tail, and it was a little on the large side. I stopped and got my binocs on
it, and saw the tail, and the head of a Lark Sparrow!. I tried to get
photos of it, but I couldn't get my camera out quick enough. :-(

I seem to remember someone having a Lark Sparrow pair or some other odd
sparrow possibly breading in the same area a few years ago, but it isn't
showing up on eBird. I was wondering if anyone remembers that.

Other than that, it was a pretty basic day. List including Lark location
below.

Happy birding and God bless,

Steve J.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] BlacklickWoods,4-29: migrants
We made a quick run through the trails at this MetroPark southeast of Columbus this afternoon, after the rain storms had passed through the area. Although the woods were dripping and partly flooded, there was a decent showing of migrants, including

raptors - Cooper's, Red-shouldered, and Red-tailed hawks were all on the prowl, searching for migrants, just like us

woodpeckers - 1 Red-headed Woodpecker continues to haunt the area around Ashton Pond

flycatchers - 4 E.Phoebes were around the picnic shelters, while 2 Great Cresteds were along the Maple Loop trail

Vireos - oddly, only a single Red-eyed was singing

Swallows - Tree & Barn Swallows were in some of the meadows

Wrens - House Wrens were abundant along the trails, as were resident Carolina Wrens

Gnatcatchers - 8-9 were along the woodland trails, continuing their strong showing this Spring

Thrushes - 4-5 Wood Thrushes were singing along the Beech & Maple Loops

Mimids - 3 Catbirds and 1 Brown Thrasher were around the edges of the picnic areas

Warblers - Yellow-rumps still the most common (with 5-6), but also had Nashville, Tennessee (my FOS), Yellow, Parula, Black&White, Blue-winged (2), Yellow-throated, Black-thr.Greens, N.Waterthrush, and ComYellowthroats

Tanagers - 1 Scarlet was singing along the Maple Loop Trail

Sparrows - small flocks of White-throateds added to the typical Chipping - Field - Song mix

Buntings,Grosbeaks - 2 singing Indigo Buntings and 2 pairs of Rose-br.Grosbeaks were around the Nature Center area

Blackbirds - plenty of Redwings, Grackles, and Cowbirds, but no Orioles (though we didn't loop down to the creek where they're more likely).

Subject: [Ohio-birds] SciotoGrove,Berliner,4-29:migrants
I visited these two migrant traps south of downtown Columbus this morning before the main rain moved in around 10. There was no major fallout, but there were modest #s of migrants at both sites, including

Flycatchers - 2 Great Cresteds were calling at Scioto Grove
Swallows - both parks had small groups of Trees, Rough-wings, and Barns
Vireos - Red-eyed were singing at both parks, and Berliner also had singing Warbling (6) and White-eyed
Gnatcatchers - one of the most common migrants, with 25+ over the morning
Thrushes - only Wood Thrushes, but they were common at both sites; Scioto Grove had 7-8 singing
Mimids - singing Gray Catbirds were at both sites
Warblers - Lots of Yellow-rumps (20+ at SciotoGrove, 30+ at Berliner), but also had Nashville, Yellow, Parula, Yellow-throated, Prothonotaries (2 at Scioto Grove, 4 at Berliner), and Palm
Rose-br.Grosbeaks - 3 were singing in the forest at Scioto Grove
Sparrows - small flocks of White-throateds were still at both locations, along with the expected Songs & Fields
Orioles - 3 Baltimores were singing at Scioto Grove, while the field at the south end of Berliner had a singing Orchard

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Hoover Nature Preserve, Galena, Delaware Cty
This morning I was joined by a group of fearless birders ( the weather map said we were between waves of thunder storms) for a Prothonotary Warbler Walk at the Hoover Nature Preserve. We restricted ourselves to Area N with an eye to the sky to enable us to dash for the cars if (when) the rains came. The birds had sympathy for us and came out quickly as we walked the trail. We observed numerous Prothonotary Warblers, several of which proved to be showoffs. The Prothonotaries sang from open perches, collected nest material, made trips to several of my nest boxes with one perching on top for better pictures, overall putting on a nice show. We managed to observed three different males with legs bands.

Other species in this small area include, in part, Northern Parula, Yellow-throated Warbler, Warbling Vireo, Baltimore Oriole, Osprey, American Coot and Red-headed Woodpecker.  Then the rain began to pick up. Smartly we made a bee line for the cars. As I shut the car door the rain intensified and the thunder began to rumble. For a short walk it had good enough results for those there to head home happy.

Yellow-throated Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler

We also saw Wood Thrushes and heard a Swainson's Thrush. We heard an Indigo

Then we walked for a little bit at the horsemen's area at Buck Creek State
Park and added three more species.

Orange-crowned Warbler

Fairly quiet at Hinckley but I did pick up my FOS Solitary (1) & Spotted SPs (2) along the lakeshore by the Johnson picnic area. Only warblers were Yellow, YT, Com YT & Ovenbird. Pileated WP.

Decided to chase the Henslow's sparrows at Bath Nature Reserve, my first visit to this lovely spot. I ran into a couple birders who directed me to the area near oil well F where I heard a number of Henslow's but finally spotted one perched & singing on some taller grass. Not that close but flat head obvious. Also had Song, Chipping, White-crowned, Field & House Sparrows. Lots of E Meadowlarks singing & chasing each other around.

A male RB Grosbeak was lovely as it sang from a perch. Only Yellow & Com YT warblers. Brown Thrashers, E BBs, Tree, Barn & Rough-winged swallows.

House Wren singing.

I birded the tower at lake Erie Bluffs in Lake County this morning for a couple hours. Despite southwest winds, it was much cooler today and a lot less birds. Yesterday i saw close to 9,000 blue jays, today about 1,000. There was a little more activity on the lake today with more Caspian terns and cormorants, but nothing else of note. I saw a lot fewer songbirds migrating with only yellow, palm and yellow-rumped warblers. The only birds of note were 11 black-bellied plovers that were heading west.

Karen Lakus, one of CWC's staff, discovered a Bald Eagle nest being built across the river north of the center along the Tow Path. She saw an eagle carrying a stick, followed its flight and saw it land on the nest. The nest is on private property, but can be seen from the Tow Path. Binoculars or scope are suggested, but are not needed. Approximately 1.5 mile walk from the center or 0.5 mile walk from the the lower Harvard Rd Trailhead parking lot near Jennings Rd. Look up and to the right of the "No Anchoring or Dredging" sign across the river.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Lake Erie Bluffs, Lake County 4/27
Two cattle egrets were seen flying by Lake Erie Bluffs in Lake County about 9:00 this morning. Both were in breeding plumage and were flying west out over the lake. There were quite a few great blue herons (26) and great egrets (9) migrating out over the lake. There were tons of blue jays moving. In 2 1/2 hours I counted 8,770 and I missed a lot while looking at other stuff. I also had around 500 American goldfinches. Typically I get numbers like this the first week of May. I was on the observation tower off Clark Road watching everything flying by. I had 7 species of warblers just from the top of the 50' tower so there were undoubtedly a lot more moving if you spent time searching the woods and fields. Also of note were 17 red-bellied woodpeckers all headed east. They move every other year along the lake. I noticed this back when I was banding.There were also small numbers of titmice, chickadees, downy woodpeckers, and cardinals moving the same years as the woodpeckers. Our totals from the Lake Erie Island Christmas Bird Count match this trend also.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Columbus Upland Sandpipers
For those who haven't seen the eBird reports, there are several UPLAND SANDPIPERS at the Ohio State Airport. They are easiest to see with a spotting scope from the observation tower, which is open to the public.

These birds are annual in Ohio, but not usually easy to see. The tower makes it much easier! It does take patience though, and it's best to go early. By midday, the ground is warm enough that the heat distorts the more distant views.

The OSU Airport is located at 2160 West Case Road
Columbus, OH 43235.

I live about 10 minutes from there and would be more than happy to check it
out. There are many bluebird boxes in the park, do you know if it was on
the north or south end of the park?

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Conkles Hollow, Zaleski SF & lake Hope Tuesday
Clear Creek MP was pretty quiet this AM although one Worm-eating Warbler was trilling at the same spot as yesterday on the Hemlock Trail. YT, B&W & N Parula also. Did add Red-eyed Vireo & RC Kinglet.

I checked out Conkles Hollow where I had at least 3 La WTs, v vocal & some chasing around. Heard BT Greens & a perched & singing Indigo Bunting was a treat. Brown Thrashers at Clear Creek & Conkles.

At Zaleski, Prairie Warblers were singing at several spots & I got wonderful looks at Blue-winged & BT Green warblers. At one point I had 3 Prairies singing & fell into a warbler vortex where I couldn't get on a single one but finally one perched & sang cooperatively, although the blinding white sky behind it lessened the experience some. Also heard YB Cuckoo.

At Lake Hope, at the odd hour of 2pm, I heard 2 warblers singing nonstop--ceruleans! The closer one was high in a red oak just leafing out right by the lodge. It took forever to finally spot it but the searching yielded a male Rose-breasted GB, Yellow-rumped Warbler, male Orchard Oriole, another RE Vireo, & Great Crested FC! Quite a tree. Oh, & flyby pileated WP & Coopers Hawk.

My gps took me on an interesting route back to Lake Logan where I spotted 3 Mergansers from the marina near the dam. In the scope, they appeared to be Red-breasted, not common: distinct white wing patch, shaggy crests & white throats. Don't think I've seen these on Lake Logan before.

I finally picked up 2 Black Vultures for the trip over the lake & had another osprey fly over.

12 warblers plus Y-rumped for trip. Not bad for the weather & early migration.

Hi Dawn,

There's a good number of birders that bird Armleder on a daily basis, as I
see photos from there daily on Facebook. Many aren't likely on the

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Attention Cincy birders: Possible rare bird at Armleder Park
Hi,

I'm managing editor for Bird Watcher's Digest. I got a call this afternoon from
an elderly birder who is no longer ambulatory. He and his driver were in
Armleder Park near downtown Cincinnati earlier today, and they both saw an
unusual bird perched on top of a bluebird box. The bird was larger than a
bluebird, he said, and had a black head and gold breast. Otherwise it was black.
His best guess was an Audubon's oriole (although it sounds more like a Scott's
to me). He said he's been a serious birder for many years, and he's certain that
it wasn't a goldfinch, a Baltimore oriole, or anything else he's ever seen in
Ohio.

Since I live four hours away and had never previously heard of Armleder Park, is
there a Cincy-area birder who would visit this place today or tomorrow to check
it out and see if they see anything unusual?

If you go, thanks, and please let me know even if you don't find anything—and
especially if you do!

We made the hour & a half drive down to the Arc of Appalachia preserves along Rocky Fork Gorge in Hillsboro County and were rewarded with a burst of early Neotropical migrants (similar to what Bruce Simpson has found at Lake Hope) as well as some spectacular Spring wildflower displays. We hiked both the Barrett's Rim Trail and the Valley of the Ancients Trail, and had

Flycatchers - still only E.Phoebes here, but quite a few of them
Vireos - singing Blue-headed and Red-eyed at several areas
Swallows - Rough-wings were abundant in the Gorge, and Tree and Barns were in the upland fields
Gnatcatchers - quite a few of them, but no nest-building yet
Thrushes - had 2 singing Wood Thrushes at Barrett's Rim
Mimids - had singing Brown Thrasher & Catbirds along the main road
Warblers - 10 species, with the riparian Parulas, Yellow-throateds, and Louisiana Waterthrushes bordering on abundant. Also had Blue-winged, Nashville, Prairie (2), Yellow-rumped (8), Black-thr.Green, Ovenbird, and Common Yellowthroats
Tanagers - 3 different singing Scarlet Tanagers at Barrett's Rim were a treat
Grosbeaks - 1 singing Rose-br.Grosbeak
Sparrows - nothing other than the expected Towhees-Chippings-Fields-Songs, other than a few small flocks of White-throateds

There is a nice colony of bank swallows in the Martin-Marietta gravel pit

One male Scarlet Tanager--still one of all time favorite birds. Mix of Rough-winged & Tree Swallows.

Also had Warbling Vireo at Lake Logan, singing Brown Thrasher at Wahkeena & at the cabin where I'm staying near sugar grove, Wood Thrush, E Phoebe, Rose-breasted Grosbeak and lightening bugs!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Morning birding at Lake Snowden
I led an Athens Area Birders walk along the Lakeside Trail at Lake Snowden this sunny morning. 2 Yellow Warblers were chasing each other near the road to the campground, and 2 Warbling Vireos were singing nearby. We had good looks at a pair of Ospreys circling over the lake and perching in a tree across the lake. We saw Wood Ducks perched on limbs high up in the canopy of the woods. The songs of Wood Thrush, Scarlet Tanager, Baltimore Oriole, Tufted Titmouse, American Robin, Brown Thrasher, and Yellow-rumped Warbler were heard in the woods.

Some of us proceeded all the way to the Hocking College Fisheries, where we were treated to an Osprey with a fish in its talons, and a pair of Red-tailed Hawks. Several swallow species were darting over our heads, including Tree Swallows (the predominant species), several Barn Swallows and Purple Martins, and a few Northern Rough-winged Swallows and at least one Cliff Swallow. A few Chimney Swifts joined in as well. An Eastern Meadowlark was also present. On our way back, we encountered a hoped-for Red-headed Woodpecker at the campground.

My final list has 48 species:

Subject: [Ohio-birds] New bird species names, etc
Weary amateurs will find more advances in the scientific study of birds
in what will soon be a new AOU (oops, sorry, AOS) checklist, based
mostly on popular cheaper new studies made possible by analyses of DNA.
The Audubon site
http://www.audubon.org/news/here-are-biggest-changes-aou-checklist-north-american-birds
has a helpful essay from Kenn Kaufmann explaining this yearly
shake-up of the understood list. You can read more about it on the AOU
site, as the votes have not yet been collected on these changes. KK
does not mention the earth-shaking (or at least annoying) name change of
the AOU to the AOS (American Ornithological Society); maybe "aou" has
been found to be a curse word in some obscure language, who knows...
Rejoice,
Bill Whan

Subject: [Ohio-birds] LITTLE BLUE HERON - Vinton County
Tyler Ficker, Matt Bell, and I found an adult LITTLE BLUE HERON at Lake Rupert in Vinton County. It was located on the west side of the bridge in the far back edge of the marshy area. It was actively hunting while we observed it and frequently disappeared into the grass at times. We will be checking again at first light and will update in the morning.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Battelle-Darby,4-22:migrant diversityOK, but numbers thin
The cold morning seemed to stall the early migration here along Darby Creek (southwest of Columbus), if my list from 4 hours this morning was any indication. I stopped at Indian Ridge, Cedar Ridge, and the Nature Center, as well as a few stops in nearby Grove City. Lots of trees & shrubs budding or leafing out, but the bird numbers were modest. Included were:

Coopers Hawks - display-flying birds at several locations, indicating nesting territories
Flycatchers - only E. Phoebes, most around the picnic areas at the MetroPark
Vireos - only 2 Blue-headed, singing at Indian Ridge and at Cedar Ridge
Swallows - Rough-wings and Trees were widespread, and a few Barn Swallows were in the field areas
House Wrens - singing birds at many wood edges
Gnatcatchers - perhaps the most common bird of the morning, with over 30 in the 4 hours
Kinglets - only Ruby-crowns, and not very many of them (5 total)
Wood Thrush - 1 was singing in the woodlot at Fryar Park in Grove City, my FOS
BrownThrashers - 2 birds were along the wood edges at Cedar Ridge
Gray Catbirds - 2 were singing in the streamside honeysuckles at Willow Run Park near Grove City
Warblers - modest #s of Yellow, Parula, Yellow-throated, Nashville, Black-thr.Green, Palms, and Yellow-rumps. Also had a singing Louisiana Waterthrush along the Terrace Trail
Sparrows - lost of small flocks of White-throats, along with the expected resident Towhees, Chipping, Field, and Songs
Icterids - only blackbirds, though they were widespread

Subject: Re: [Ohio-birds] Silver Lake, 21 April: Junco
Hi Ken,

Northern Summit county is within the breeding range of Dark-eyed Junco in
Ohio. Albeit on the southern edge. Juncos can be a common and prolific
breeder in appropriate habitat in NE Ohio, but their range is confined to
Astabula, Eastern Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Portage and Northern Summit
counties.

The breeding population of this species has exploded in the past 30 years.
Our breeding Juncos habituate readily to different situations and are not
confined to mature forests or hemlock ravines. In Geauga county they often
use hanging plants as a nest.

Keep an eye out for nesting activity in your area. They will often have 3
broods and in some places are already working on their first.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Hoover Nature Preserve, Delaware Cty - Prothonotary Warbler Status
  I scouted around the Hoover Nature Preserve today to ascertain the current Status of the Prothonotary Warblers and to determine where to apply efforts to police trash around the preserve on Saturday morning. Fishing season is getting active and with it the accumulation of beer cans and other trash. For both the benefit of the birds and the preserve visitors I and members of the Big Walnut Nature Club plan to exert a major effort to clean Area N and some  other close sections of the preserve around Galena.
Back to the Prothonotary Warblers, they are beginning to show up in increasing numbers daily. To date I have observed them at Area N, Area M (right off the boardwalk), Area L, Wiese Road, Oxbow Road, Old Sunbury Road and Mudhen Marsh. Several of the Prothontary Warblers observed today had colored leg bands. During the last two years about 100 PROWs were banded at the preserve. If you should encounter one of these banded individuals and are able to determine the color sequence on one or both legs I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. What were the colored bands by leg and when and where did you observe the bird.
Other warblers observe at the preserve today included Yellow-throated, Northern Parula, Palm, Yellow-rumped and Yellow.

I was surprised to find a single Pine Siskin at my backyard black oil
sunflower feeder this afternoon in Montville Township. I had

a male Purple Finch earlier in the week hang around for a couple hours.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Earth Day, March for Science, Spring Migration and a VERY BAD BUDGET AMENDMENT in Ohio Legislature
As we enjoy the spring migration, celebrate Earth Day, or March for Science, it is important to pay attention to what is happened in our state legislator. The budget bill will be voted on in it’s entirety by June 30th but now is the time that numerous amendments get inserted - the one that has a chilling effect on anyone who cares about their county park districts is described below - please read, consider taking action. Curtailing freedom of speech in the name of quashing disagreement with environmental issues is NOT in the best interest of Ohio residents and legislators

Distributed by Protect Geauga Parks:

TAKE NOTICE - DIRE LANGUAGE IN BUDGET BILL REGARDING ANYONE OPPOSING PARK DISTRICT DECISIONS

A proposed amendment to the Ohio Budget currently being reviewed by the Ohio
Legislature would allow judges (who appoint County Park Commissioners) even MORE expanded power over park
districts AND the ability to penalize and fine groups that the judge deems
“interfering” with the park district. This appears to be an
underhanded way to change the law without public scrutiny, meant to have a
chilling effect on anyone who would dare to oppose any judge or his
appointed board.

Please read this article from Cleveland .com
http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2017/04/proposal_would_allow_judges_to.html <http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2017/04/proposal_would_allow_judges_to.html>


PLEASE TAKE ACTION!
Contact your legislators and ALL members of the Ohio General Assembly
Finance Committee (listed below) and say:
1. I am calling about the budget bill – House Bill 49
2. Specifically about the proposal that would allow judges in fine Ohioans
opposing park district actions. (changes to Ohio Revised Code 1545.06)
3. I am a citizen and taxpayer. I want this language REMOVED from the
budget bill.

For supporters who want more suggested talking points
I am a citizen and taxpayer. I want this language REMOVED from the budget
bill.
Because:
 This it is a blatant example of judicial overreach
 This is a sneaky underhanded way of changing Ohio law without public input.
 Will cost state money due to myriad of lawsuits
 Enforcement of the language may violate citizen’s rights as guaranteed
by the 1st, 4th and 5th amendments to the Constitution
 Micromanagement by the judge will Increase delays in probate court docket
 This is meant to have a chilling effect on public participation

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Request for information
In mid-May a couple of California birding friends are coming to Magee
Marsh. They would like to see a Henslow's Sparrow. I usually go to the AEP
land around The Wilds to find them. They don't have time to drive that far.

Does anyone know of any areas near Magee Marsh where Henslow's Sparrow
breed? I plan to meet my friends at Magee and show then around.

If anyone has info on Henslow's near Magee, please e-mail me any details.

Thank you very much.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Fwd: Drones
Thanks to the better-informed folks who sent me information on drones. I
had forgotten that the Federal government has rule over the sky. You may
not agree after a look at the photo my brother Pete sent me
(attached)...if you want decisive results, I say send a golden eagle!
I hope that bird observers will continue to wonder about the parts
drones might play in field observations, for good or for ill.
Like other technologies, this one invites shallow results. Birders are
most likely to see drones in the field, and they must be those who
document and comment on the effects they have on wild birds. I'm not
thrilled to anticipate them.

Subject: Re: [Ohio-birds] Regulation of drones
I thought I had heard/read that drones are not to be used in the National Parks by the public ... with the Cuyahoga Valley National Park being the park that was in question. Other park systems (state, county or local) may have their own rules, but being a relatively new technology available at cheaper prices to the public, more people are getting their hands on them ... and being stupid. Does American Birding Association (ABA) have a statement? How about Ohio Ornithological Assoc. (OOS)?

Subject: Re: [Ohio-birds] Regulation of drones

This is something that was supposed to be addressed a few state house sessions ago, but failed to get enough support. Here is the general Rule for all drone activities:

"The laws and regulations applicable to drone flights are almost entirely federal. The federal government “has exclusive sovereignty of airspace in the United States”6 and the FAA sets all standards for flight safety,7 “preempting the entire field from state and local regulation.”8 "
-
https://www.ohiobar.org/newsandpublications/ohiolawyer/pages/drones-and-the-law-what-you-need-to-know.aspx

However, there are rules on the books about hindering law enforcement, and normal park activities, and such that if you were being a hindrance, you would be "asked" or made to stop. Also flying a drone in a nesting site may be seen as disturbing a nesting site. So there are no state regulations out there that specifically say "Thou shalt not fly drones", but there are plenty that say do not disturb (without permission). SO before you fly, register with the feds, and stop by the park office, or call the district in charge of the area to get local rules. I'm sure if you plan to buzz a rookery, that you will need permission.

Here is a short video about registering drones in Ohio:

And if you see someone buzzing migratory birds, CALL THE DISTRICT!!! They can send someone to investigate. Let them make the decision...I have all my locals on speed dial. :-D

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Lake Erie Bluffs, Lake County, 4/19
I was at the Lake Erie Bluffs this morning for about three hours. A couple brief showers and a couple peeks of sun kept it interesting. Along the lake there were a lot of cormorants moving with over 300 counted. Of note was a pair of female long-tailed ducks observed heading east. There were quite a few songbirds moving with blackbirds, swallows and blue jays making up the majority. Of note was a single calling fish crow.


There were a few songbirds along the trails west of Lane Road including four species of warblers, yellow-throated, palm, yellow-rumped and yellow. The yellow-throated was along the north side of the trail near the intersection with the trail that heads north to the beach. Also of note was an early male orchard oriole that I observed a few times . It seemed to be moving around in the interior of the loop trail west of Lane Road.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Spring Arrivals on South Bass Island
I heard my first eastern phoebe on South Bass Island on Saturday. Heard a towhee today and saw rough-winged swallows at the South Bass Island State Park. Have had chipping sparrows all week in the vineyard while working. Yellow-rumped warblers at the Massie Cliffside Preserve today.

Still lots of horned grebes, red-breasted mergansers as well as a few common loons on the lake.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] 2017 Ohio Avian Research Conference
Dear Friends and Colleagues;

For the past four years I have planned and organized a state-wide ornithological research conference here in Ohio to help promote the science of ornithology to a broader audience. This conference brings together professional academics, citizen scientists, museum workers, agency and non-profit biologists, students and birders from all over Ohio to share the latest information with one another about their research work both locally and globally.

This will be the fifth consecutive year for the Ohio avian Research conference and I'd like to make it something special. To that end Ive recruited a special keynote presenter for this years conference. Im happy to announce that Dr. Steven Beissinger, President of the American Ornithological Society (formerly AOU) will be this years keynote speaker. Dr. Beissinger earned his Bachelors and Masters degrees at Miami University of Ohio.

Dr. Beissinger has been recognized as a Fellow of the London Zoological Society and the American Ornithologists Union (AOU), where he chaired the Conservation Committee and was elected as a councilor. In 2010 he received the William Brewster Award from the AOU for publication of the most meritorious body of work on birds of the Western Hemisphere over the past decades. He has served on the Board of Governors of the Society for Conservation Biology, National Academy of Sciences Committee for the Restoration of the Everglades, Board of Directors of the National Audubon Society, Marbled Murrelet Recovery Team, U.S. National Committee to the International Union of Biological Sciences, and U.S. National Committee of Diversitas. He has served on the editoriall boards of Conservation Biology,Ecology and Ecology Letters. Read more here: https://tinyurl.com/n3fhju4

This year's conference will be held on Saturday, October 14th once again at Denison University in Granville. So please hold the date. An official conference website, registration and more information will be forthcoming in the months ahead, with a call for presentations and abstracts in September. Well be offering 30 minute or 15 minute time blocks for most presentations, however based on their success last year well also be offering 5 minute speed round presentations for students, especially undergraduates and high school students.

In the meantime you can view the conference schedules for the past several conferences here:
2016: http://tuckercasey.wixsite.com/aacri-birds/oarc2016
2015: http://tuckercasey.wixsite.com/aacri-birds/oarc2015
2014: http://tuckercasey.wixsite.com/aacri-birds/oarc2014

If you, or your organization, would like a table for a display or to market items please do not hesitate to contact me between now and the end of September.

This will be an exciting conference, and I hope many of you will consider joining us for another great year of promoting and celebrating the science of birds.

See you in October!

Casey Tucker

Greetings!

Well I think that our Florida sized group of Pelicans have lifted off ahead
of the storm to parts wherever.

Reports earlier had the pelicans lifting off sometime between 9 and noon
when I saw them.

We still have a smattering of different shorebirds in the above ground

BRING ON THE BOBOLINKS!

Happy birding and God bless,

Hope this isn't too late; I was shown the GHO nest late this afternoon.

From the Rural Road parking lot at Chagrin River Park, head northeast
on the Woodland Run Trail, past the swing set. A short way along on
your left you'll see an area marked off with yellow tape. The nest is
on the very top of a big broken-off tree.

There were two owlets and an adult in the nest when I was there.

Good luck!

Tipped off by another birder but hard to miss given its sweet song--my fos Yellow Warbler was near the end of the Boardwalk at Beaver Marsh today, late morning. There was a Ruby-crowned Kinglet and a couple pairs of Wood Ducks along with many Tree Swallows.

Earlier in the AM, I explored the Ledges area in CVNP. I was delighted to hear, then see well, a Winter Wren--it even did a marvelous, wing-fluttering display not far from the trail. I found another vocal one farther down the path. Such a cool bird. I also had Blue-gray Gnatcatchers & a singing Yellow-throated Warbler in the same area.

BTW, I am new to the Cleveland area and would appreciate suggestions on the best places to bird or even join up with some local birders to learn the area. Pls contact me offlist. Many thx!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Clark County Swans
Julie and I walked through Old Reid Park this morning. This is just south of
Buck Creek State Park in Clark County. There is a male Mute Swan that has
lived there for a few years now. This morning a Trumpeter Swan flew in and
landed on the ponds. The Mute Swan then swam over with a very aggressive
posture and chased the Trumpeter Swan. The Trumpeter Swan flew a little ways
to another section of the ponds. Then the Mute Swan swam to chase it again.
The Trumpeter flew again. The Mute Swan swam to a nest it has built to chase
off a goose and sit on it a minute. There is no female and no eggs but the
male has a poor nest started. After a minute it swam to chase the Trumpeter
again. Again the Trumpeter didn't go far. We left while this was still going
on. There have been two Trumpeter Swans in the area for a week or so. I
don't know what will happen in this ongoing confrontation.

Julie and I took a walk at Old Reid Park this morning. This is in Clark
County just across Croft Road from Buck Creek State Park. We had a couple
first sightings for us for the year. We saw our first Warbling Vireo of the
year and also a Green Heron. Two Chimney Swifts also flew by. We also saw a
Solitary Sandpiper. Along the bike path west of the Pumphouse Road bridge we
saw four Purple Finches.

Other birds included several Yellow-throated Warblers and a few Northern
Parulas. These arrived a few days ago and nest in the park.

I stopped by several preserves along Walnut Creek from Groveport to Canal Winchester, then visited two spots in Slate Run MetroPark just south of there (5-Oaks Trail, wetlands). The blustery morning still had many birds if you checked in protected areas. Notables included:

Blue-winged Teal - at least 3 pairs were in the Slate Run wetlands
Sandhill Cranes - 3 were circling around over Bareis Preserve on Walnut Creek
Kestrel - 1 was at Bareis Preserve, a typical summering location
Shorebirds - Killdeer were widespread, but the Slate Run wetlands also had 1 Greater Yellowlegs
Sapsuckers - at least 2 were in the wooded ravines along the 5-Oaks Trail at Slate Run
E.Phoebes - at many locations; the 5-Oaks Trail had 4
Swallows - Trees and Barns were at many locations, and Rough-wings were at Slate Run
Gnatcatchers - common in many locations; the 5-Oaks Trail had at least 20
Ruby-cr.Kinglets - small groups in many different locations
Hermit Thrushes - small flocks of 4 at Bareis Preserve, and 3 at 5-Oaks Trail in Slate Run
BrownThrashers - singing birds at Buckeye access of Walnut Woods, Bareis Preserve, and Slate Run wetlands
Parula Warblers - 2 singing birds were in the ravines along the 5-Oaks Trail at Slate Run
Yellow-throated Warblers - 2 were singing in the same ravines as the Parulas
Black-thr.Green - at least 1 male was along the 5-Oaks Trail
Louisiana Waterthrush - the Slate Run ravines had 1 defensive pair and a lone singing male
White-throated Sparrows - small flocks in many locations
Purple Finches - 1 was singing with 2 others calling along the 5-Oaks Trail at Slate Run

This morning at dawn I decided to hike to our farthest, deepest ravine,
hoping to hear a Louisiana waterthrush, which had been sadly lacking so far
this spring. I fear that "our" waterthrushes have met with mishap, after
consistently nesting here every year since we arrived in 2000. Although I
detected no waterthrush I was rewarded with my FOS wood thrush, a
comparably beautiful voice.

Returning by way of the "back forty" scrubby field I also heard our first
house wren of the season, followed by another later in the morning near the
house in the north lot.

I live around 600 feet from the lake and they were flying just south of the house. Of note was an adult golden eagle that passed over around 3:45 heading east. I also had 321 broad-winged hawks, including one flock of 180+. I did not make an exact count on things like vultures, but here are some totals.

E.Phoebes, a few calling at both locations
Swallows - a few Rough-wings were calling along the creeks at both spots; Clifton also had 2 Tree Swallows
House Wrens - 3-4 were singing in the scruffy floodplain along Massie Creek
Gnatcatchers - good #s at both places, with 8-10 at each

Many observers are enjoying the American White Pelicans at Big Island. They
are in the middle pond along LaRue Prospect Rd. Ron Sempier had a high

Sorry for the late post but I wasn't signed up for the list yet, having just moved from AZ to the Cleveland area.

Had my foy Yellow-throated & Yellow-rumped Warblers at Station Rd on Wednesday. Great to be back in Ohio! I spent some time at the Bald Eagle nest there & 2 photographers confirmed they had seen 2 chicks at the same time. I only saw one in the time I was there. A peregrine flew by the parking lot as I was leaving.

Also, 2 Fox Sparrows at Tinker Creek where a Red-shouldered Hawk swooped & landed in some weeds right in front of me. Apparently, an unsuccessful hunt as I did not see any hapless prey in its talons.

Tonite, I joined the CVNP Woodcock walk near the Park Headquarters. Perhaps 4-5 birds heard "peenting" as well as some aerial displays. Best was a male that landed on the trail near the group & was seen well as it peented. We heard Fox Sparrows there as well.

SW Columbus subdivision this week saw Brown Thrasher pass through,
White-throated Sparrows kicking and singing, and today had at least two
Ruby-crowned Kinglets zipping around the yard. But I guess our Red-breasted
Nuthatch left last weekend. I miss him already.

This evening we walked near Darby Creek Dr & Kuhlwein Rd wetlands area for
maybe ten minutes and came home with two ticks.. That's all I have to say
about that.

Greetings!

I just got word that 30 American White Pelicans just dropped into Big
Island Wildlife Area. ...I just missed them. They must be in the most
Eastern pond on LaRue Prospect...That is where they usually hang out when
they are here. They should hang around for a day or two.

Possible Ross's Goose hanging around the western side of the center pond in
that same complex...

Marsh wrens heard and seen calling along the western edge of the western
pond.

Lots of other good birds around big Island. Shorebirds are all along SR
95. Check the raised pond along SR 95 for shore birds as well, it is still
muddy from being drained.

Happy birding and God bless,

Migrants are slowly seeping through the habitats on & around these 2 reservoirs, with a mix of temperate and the first glimmer of neotropicals. I stopped at the beach & visitor's center area and the East Dam area at Alum, and the Wiese Rd bikepath and Oxbow Island at Hoover. Notables in 4 hours included:

Waterfowl - still some lingerers, with some Lesser Scaup and Bufflehead at Alum and a flock of Ruddies at Hoover
Grebes - Horned and Pied-billed off the beach at Alum and Horned off Oxbow at Hoover
Common Loon -1 bird still off old Lewis Rd access at Alum
Osprey - birds at both the Alum beach and Wiese Rd at Hoover
Caspian Terns - 2 were fishing off the beach area at Alum
E.Phoebes - singles at many locations at both reservoirs
Cliff Swallows - 10+ around the dam at Alum, a traditional nesting area
Tree Swallows - 30+ around the beach area at Alum, foraging over the Lake and jousting around nest boxes
Barn Swallows - 3-4 foraging over the water at the beach at Alum
PurpleMartins - 3 were around the nest gourds at the Alum Creek Lake dam
Gnatcatchers - small numbers in many places
kinglets - Ruby-crowns widespread, but not common. The only Golden-crowns were at Wiese Rd
BrownThrashers - singing birds were at the beach area at Alum and along Wiese Rd at Hoover
Orange-crowned Warbler - 1 was singing in the scrub off east Dam at Alum Lake
Yellow-rumped Warblers - small groups at both the beach area and at Oxbow Island
Palm Warbler - 1 was with the small yellow-rump flock at Oxbow Island

This past week on the island we have had lots of dark-eyed juncos and white-throated sparrows moving through. The female red-wings are here. I saw an eastern meadowlark on Middle Bass on Monday.

We still have common loons, horned grebes in various plumages, red-breasted mergansers, bufflehead, and lesser scaup in the harbor on South Bass. Kuehnle Wildlife Area on Middle Bass had wigeon, blue-winged teal, ring-neck ducks, hooded mergansers, horned grebes, wood ducks last Monday.

Will see what the warm temperatures bring us this weekend! Dutchman's breeches are beautiful right now.

Just got a heads-up from Troy Shively, who is spending the day at Lake
Logan doing some boat training. An unmistakable laughing gull has
haunted the beach all day, a big surprise for Lake Logan State Park. He
cautioned that his trainees will likely keep the bird from loafing
around the beach, so checking other areas would be advisable, too.
The Lake is in Hocking County next to Rt3 33 a dozen miles SE of Lancaster.
Best of luck, Bill Whan

I spent an hour & a half this afternoon walking around the Hoover dam area and nearby Inniswood MetroPark, looking for any early migrants, with little luck. The dam area was virtually devoid of waterbirds, with only a few Mallards & Hooded Mergansers in the spillway, and a few cormorants and gulls above the dam. The only significant notables were:

Sharp-shinned Hawk - 1 was soaring over the spillway at Hoover
Red-headed Woodpecker - at least 1 adult is still hanging around the forest trail at Inniswood
Cliff Swallows - at least 5 were swirling around the dam, a major nest site area later in the season
Gnatcatchers - none at Hoover, but 7-8 around Inniswood was a good #
Warblers - nothing but a few yellow-rumps in the riparian zone below the dam

Subject: [Ohio-birds] broad winged hawk - geauga co
At home, early in the morning I saw a broad winged hawk perched high up in
the pine trees just off the driveway. (Matt Valencic saw one in Geauga Co.
yesterday, so they were on my mind, and I paused to take a closer look
when i saw a hawk in the tree.)

A few hours later, I saw a broad wing in flight, at first when he was low,
harassed by a couple of crows, and then as he gained elevation, the crows
were replaced by what I think was a sharp shinned hawk. Quite small in
comparison. He persisted in diving at the broad winged and generally
pursuing him until I lost sight of the pair.

The Glossy Ibis at Killdeer is probably gone. About 5:35 the ibis flew up
high and very far away - east. If it landed at all, it probably landed in
the off limits wetlands just north of pond 27.

relocate it. I didn't do a thorough search, but there were a lot of fishing

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Add a red-winged Blackbird in Cleveland Heights
Hi Everyone,

The day gets better—a male red-Winged Blackbird is visiting our feeders now. They have done that at about this time for the last few years—sadly our little back-yard pond is just too small, and too few reeds, for them to nest. We’ve seen them checking it out in the past—then they move on to better sites.

Best to all,

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Hermit Thrush in Cleveland Heights
Hi Everyone,

So far the spring had not brought migrants to the yard—well, perhaps a couple of Robins—but just increased activity from all the birds who are here, lots more vocalizing. We still have winter birds—Dark-eyed Junco and Red-breasted Nuthatch—coming to the feeders.

But today we had our first certifiable spring migrant in the back yard—a Hermit Thrush, moving around quite a bit and giving us good looks.

Best to all,

Displaying American Woodcocks were easy to see and hear in Beachwood City
Park tonight between 8:15 and 8:30 p.m. The paved all-purpose trail in the
lower bowl of the park just east of the ridge-top Picnic Pavilion on the
south side of the Park, was a particularly good spot to observe the birds.
There is a park bench conveniently located there. This is on Shaker Blvd.
midway between Sulgrave and Richmond Rds. The birds are annual there.

BrownCreepers - not common, with singles at Trabue, Avery, and Glacier Ridge N
Golden-cr.Kinglets - small #s at every stop
Ruby-cr.Kinglets - 2 at Trabue, another at GlacierRidge N
HermitThrush - singles at Trabue and Glacier Ridge N
BrownThrasher - an adult singing at the edge of a field at Glacier Ridge N
Warblers - only Yellow-rumps, and not very many of them
Field Sparrows - many birds, at Trabue and Glacier Ridge N
FoxSparrow - 1 was in an overgrown field at Glacier Ridge N
E.Meadowlarks - 3-4 singing in the shortgrass fields of Glacier Ridge N
RustyBlackbird - an adult was singing around the vernal pools at Glacier Ridge N

After watching the Pergrine Falcons Marty Reynard and I were walking back along the towpath and heard a warbler.

After much searching got to see the Yellow-throated Warbler hanging out with some Chickadees.


From Station Rd train station head east over pedestrian bridge over the river. It was in the wetlands on the north side of the trail just before it meets the towpath trail. This is the area where they have been seen for the last couple. It was surprising to see that it was in the cattails and not high up in the trees.

From: Andrew Sewell <semillama...>
Subject: [Ohio-birds] Birding around NE Ohio
​I spent the day around Cleveland and hit the Funk area on the way home.
Highlights:

Lewis Road Riding Ring at Rocky River Reservation:
The Loggerhead Shrike was active and easily observable when I arrived
around 8 AM, but the Say's Phoebe slept in and didn't show up until 9:30
AM.Worth the wait for Ohio Bird #340! In the meanwhile, a Vesper Sparrow,
Solitary Sandpiper, and Hermit Thrush provided distractions, along with
more common birds.

I spent two hours at Wendy Park squinting at cormorants. Only the
double-crested sort were evident; no Neotropical or Great. a nice
consolation prize was a late Iceland Gull and a Thayer's/Iceland-type gull
- seemed more Thayerish to me but it will probably be lumped in the near
future anyway... Both single Lesser and Greater Black-backed Gulls were
present. Thousands of red-breasted mergansers were also swarming the
harbor, with almost no other duck species present.​ A few loons, some
Caspian Terns, and a single Horned Grebe rounded out the avian assemblage.

I searched for Fish Crows near the last reported eBird locations, but no
luck.

The Funk area is very, very wet. Wilderness Road is flooded over, and had a
small number of ducks, including American Widgeon, Mallard, Blue-winged
Teal, Redhead, Ring-necked Duck, and Shoveler. Oddly enough, there were no
swallows, although there were plenty of small bugs flying about.
Schwarzwalder road was passable, and had a few Lesser Yellowlegs and a
Solitary Sandpiper, along with both flavors of teal, widgeon, and mallards.
Funk Bottoms itself is underwater and swarming with coots. Ring-necks were
the common duck, followed by shovelers and wood ducks. A few blue-winged
teal were also hanging around. If the water recedes somewhat in the next
couple of weeks, this should be a bonanza spot for shorebirds. Keep your
fingers crossed.

Good birding,
Andy Sewell

Subject: [Ohio-birds] BlacklickWoods&Greenbelt,4-08:towhees & other migrants
The cool crisp morning produced a decent wave of temperate migrants at these sites in southeast Columbus. I spent and hour & a half around Blacklick Woods MetroPark, then another hour along the Blacklick greenbelt from Portman Park to Chatterton Greenway, finding a good diversity of temperate migrants in both spots, including:

Sapsuckers - at least 4 at Blacklick Woods and another along the Greenway
Red-headed Woodpeckers - 4 were calling in different parts of Blacklick Woods
Flickers - good #s in both spots (12+ at the Woods, another 8 along the Greenbelt)
E.Phoebes - 5+ at Blacklick Woods, another 3 along the Greenbelt
Red-br.Nuthatch - 1 was at the Nature Center feeders at Blacklick Woods, another was along the Maple Loop
BrownCreepers - none at the Woods, but 4+ were along the Greenbelt
Gnatcatchers - 2 in Blacklick Woods, another 1 along the Greenbelt
Swallows - small flocks of Tree and Rough-winged along the Greenbelt
Kinglets - both Golden-crowns (5,2) and Ruby-crowns (1,1) in both locations
HermitThrushes - 3 were along the trails at Blacklick Woods, and another was at Chatterton on the Greenbelt
BrownThrashers - 2 were on the Maple Loop at BlacklickWoods, while another 3 were in the scrub at Chatterton
PineWarblers - 2 were frequenting the feeders at the Blacklick Nature Center
Yellow-throated Warblers - 2 were singing along Blacklick Creek at BlacklickWoods, while another was along the Creek at Chatterton
Yellow-rumpedWarblers - at least 15 were singing around the woodland trails at Blacklick Woods
LouisianaWaterthrush - 1 was singing in the wet areas along the Buttonbush Loop at Blacklick Woods
Tree Sparrow - at least 1 was still ahnging around the Nature Center feeders at Blacklick Woods
FieldSparrows - common at both locations, in double digits, with lots of singing birds
ChippingSparrows - 3 around the picnic areas at Blacklick Woods
Juncos - still over 30 around the woods edges at Blacklick Woods
Fox Sparrows - 1 was singing at Ashton Pond at Blacklick while another was at the Nature Center feeders
E.Towhees - almost abundant, with pairs everywhere; I had 30+ over both sites

Resident raptors were also putting on a good show, with calling Red-shouldered and Coopers Hawks at Blacklick Woods, and display-flights of Cooper's and Red-tailed Hawks along the Greenbelt, along with a juvenile Great Horned Owl in a nest there.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] ColumbusRavines,4-06,07 - fewEarlyMigrants
With the cold, windy conditions of the past few days, I focused on birding the Olentangy ravines, mostly windless, comfortable refuges. Yesterday I visited the wild ravines of Shale Hollow and Highbanks, while today's menu was more urban - the ravines of Beechwold and Worthington (Rush Creek). There were plenty of early temperate migrants - probably stranded there by the cold front - but little in the way of late temperate or neotropical migrants. The list included:

Red-shouldered Hawk - not really a migrant, but 1 was in Rush Creek Ravine, where they've nested before
BaldEagle - at least 1 juvenile was soaring down the Olentangy at Beechwold
Sapsucker - the only 1 was one calling at Highbanks, so their big push hasn't arrived yet
Red-headed Woodpecker - 1 continues to hang out in the gypsy-moth killed area at Highbanks
E.Phoebe - singles in many locations
BrownCreepers - 1-2 present at every site, more then were here in winter
WinterWren - 1 was singing from a ravine along the Dripping Rock Trail at Highbanks
Golden-crownKinglets - they were the most abundant early migrant here - Shale Hollow had 10+
Ruby-crownKinglet - 1 was foraging in Rush Creek Ravine in Worthington
HermitThrush - 1 was calling in a side ravine of Rush Creek in Worthington
E.Bluebirds - fairly common, with 1-2 at every site, even in the urban ravines
Warblers - only Yellow-rumps, and they were scarce, with singles only at Highbanks and Rush Creek
FieldSparrows - widespread, at most meadows abutting the ravines; Highbanks had 7+,Shale Hollow,4
FoxSparrow - 1 was still hanging around the Nature Center feeders at Highbanks

winter feeding station. They were accompanied by several Song Sparrows,
White-Throated and White-crowned Sparrows and an Eastern Towhee..big
sightings in a late-blooming blizzard.which has since vanished into the West

Subject: [Ohio-birds] New species for Ohio
If you're not a lister, you may wish to pass on these pages. I've just
been compiling a list of new species just accepted for the Ohio
list---Allen's hummingbird, black-tailed gull, kelp gull, arctic loon,
neotropic cormorant, great cormorant, reddish egret, crested caracara,
fish crow, Eurasian tree sparrow, Cassin's sparrow, and golden-crowned
sparrow.
Some years--at least ten--ago, we had a free-for-all discussion here on
Ohio Birds in which birders made predictions about which ten species
would be added to the Ohio list in time to come. Twenty offered lists.
As you'd expect from birders, few followed directions. Those who flouted
the rules got the most: Greg Links had 6 of 19, Vic Fazio 6 of 14. Among
those who dutifully reported only ten, Ethan Kistler had 3, as did
Bernie Master. Others included Su Snyder, Brad Wilkinson, Sean Zadar,
Aaron Boone, Bob Foppe, Dave Horn, Haans Petruschke, and John Pogacnik.
Here are the species recorded and votes given: fish crow 6, Allen's
hummingbird 2, neotropical cormorant 4, black-tailed gull 2, reddish
egret 1, golden-crowned sparrow 3, Cassin's sparrow 4, great cormorant
5. I can send the whole list to interested folks.

A pine warbler come to one of my feeders this morning. I could hear
it trilling in a nearby pine, at then it fluttered into the feeder joining the
chickadees and tits. A nice brightly coloured bird, though wet and
disheveled. I have found that pines typically come to feeders in
this sudden wintery weather. I am pretty sure that they are eating the hulled
sunflowers.

Generally busy feeder day. A male purple finch showed up, and six species of
sparrows, including fox.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Neotropic Cormorant - no!
Andy Sewell is absolutely right - a negative report is as valuable as a positive report. About 12-15 people searched patiently for the Neotropic Cormorant yesterday (Wed., April 5) at Wendy Park. We arrived about 10:00 and left about 5:00. The Neotropic Cormorant was never relocated. The Great Cormorant was spotted very briefly by a few birders prior to our arrival. Now, I must say, that just because we did not find it, means that the bird is gone. There are several hundred cormorants there - some by the lighthouse and some on the further out break wall to the left. The bird could easily have been hunkered down and not visible. About 4:30 a kayaker went out and around the break wall with the lighthouse on it. The cormorants got up and flew. Most of them never returned. So, we departed. This is not an easy bird to find given the circumstances - distance, sleeping birds, small size. A scope is ESSENTIAL.

Any positive or negative reports of the bird would be greatly appreciated

In general, I strongly urge listserve members to report negative
sightings. While disappointing, such reports help other birders decide

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Grand River Conservation Area Painesville Lake County
I spent a mid day half hour yesterday at the Grand River Conservation Area in Painesville (Lake County) 399 Main Street - this restored habitat is just east of downtown Painesville and sits on the Grand River flood plain. In the 1060’s is was unwisely developed into two apartment complexes that were completely flooded in 2006 (that’s what happens when one builds in a flood plain….). The buildings have been demolished and the Grand River Conservancy and other organizations worked to restore this natural area - it is worth a visit - wetlands, riparian habitat, river - a good example of what restoration can look like.

I saw:
Red Shouldered Hawk (magnificent) - sometimes the pair can be seen here
Mallards
Blue jay
Robins
Grackles
Starlings
Bluebirds
Common crows
House finches
Canada geese
Red bellied woodpeckers
Song Sparrow
White breasted nuthatch

A longer visit I’m sure would yield more - this was a quick visit.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Red-headed woodpeckers Independence Cuyahoga Cty
Two Red-headed Woodpeckers were in the trees in the wetlands behind the playground area to the west of the Independence Library. There are a number of dead trees in the are and they were high at the tops of the trees. Red-headed W. have been seen here for a number of years now. I saw them on Monday around 6 p.m.

Had a female Junco and a Chipping Sparrow beneath the feeders this morning
A few weeks ago I reported having Fox Sparrows in the yard (never more than 2) for the first time; they are gone now for the past few days, but I had them for 18 straight days in March.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Northern Shrike at Frohring Meadows in Geauga County
I saw a shrike in the small island of trees and bushes in the southeast section of the field at Frohring Meadows yesterday. But, it was very windy. The bird would go up to a perch when would die down, and then duck down in the bushes when it would gust. I think it had a faded mask. It could be the same immature bird previously reported by Inga Schmidt..

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Flint Ivory Gull update
First posted by Ben Winger on the Birding Michigan Facebook page: "Mary Margaret Ferraro, Aspen Ellis and Janet Hinshaw of the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology prepared the recently deceased Michigan Ivory Gull as a research specimen and did a basic necropsy. We learned the bird was a male. There was no sign of trauma or foreign objects like fishing tackle inside (as some had wondered), nor did we see any symptoms of some common avian diseases that can leave obvious signs in a carcass. But the bird was clearly emaciated (its breast muscle was very reduced, a sign of starvation) and it had nothing in its digestive tract except a few small fish bones. So, although he was observed eating fish, he was not absorbing adequate nutrition. We saved various tissues that we will send for toxicological analysis, but that is going to take longer to get results. In summary, the immediate cause of death was most likely starvation, but whether illness or chemicals also played a role awaits further tests. It’s not uncommon for vagrant birds to not be able to sustain themselves, and keep in mind that we have no idea how long the bird was wandering before it was seen in Flint. The study skin, skeleton and many kinds of tissue samples will all be archived in our research collections (one of the largest such collections in North America) for scientists to study in the future. Here are a couple up close views that you don’t get to see every day…look at those amazing feet!"

Subject: [Ohio-birds] ColumbusJGlennAirport,4-03:BaldEagle,Rough-wings
I birded several areas along the eastern margin of the Glenn (formerly Port of Columbus) Airport, focusing on 'traps' at Whitehall Community Park, Pizzuro Park, and the north runway (Bridgeway Ave). I was hoping for some early migrants, with the unsettled weather, but settled for:

BaldEagle - 1 adult was soaring along Big Walnut Creek at Pizzuro Park, shadowed by the resident Red-tail
Killdeer - several scattered around the grasslands of the runway
Pileated Woodpecker - 1 was calling at Whitehall Park
Rough-winged Swallows - 3 at Whitehall Park were my FOS
BrownCreepers - single birds were at both Whitehall Park and Pizzuro Park
Gnatcatcher - 1 was in the riparian strip at Pizzuro Park
Kinglets - all Golden-crowned, with 3-4 at each stop
Chipping Sparrows - singers at Whitehall and the Pet cemetery along the North Runway
FieldSparrows - singing birds at the North runway
E.Towhees - 3-4 birds were along the scrubby margins of Whitehall Park
E.Meadowlark - at least 1 was calling from the north runway grasslands

The former reigning male at the Ohio Turnpike bridge was "Rocky", who
between last month's census and this month's census returned from parts
unknown and battled it out with the unbanded "Trailblazer". Rocky was
retrieved from the field below by NPS staff and taken to the Medina Raptor
Center for rehabilitation, suffering from an eye injury. After initially
showing signs of progress, an infection spread into the eye and then into
the other eye. Unfortunately, Rocky could not be saved and had to be
euthanized ~ per Chad & Chris Saladin's Peregrine Webpage.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Loggerhead Shrike still present, OSU Waterman farms
I just left the shrike spot at Waterman Farms. The shrike is still there,
but is moving up and down the fenceline. Best advice is look where the
birders are and keep your eyes out for a flash of white when it flies.
Staying low, in the grass a lot.

Good luck!

Please join us tomorrow for the monthly program of the Athens Area Birders!

Why Does My Field Guide Keep Changing? with Kyle Brooks
As the years go by, our field guides continue to change. Bird names change, some species get lumped together or split apart, and the order in which they are presented gets moved around. Most birders accept these changes without a second thought, but why exactly do these things happen? In this presentation, we will be exploring the concept of speciation, what exactly defines a species, how and why birds are named, and why some species get shuffled around or change their name. In addition, we will be exploring some potential future changes to a few familiar species, such as how the White-Breasted Nuthatch might soon become 3 new species or how the Yellow-Rumped Warbler will become 2 new species.

Date: Tuesday, 4 April 2017
Time: 6:30 pm

Location: ODNR, 360 East State Street, Athens

The program is free and open to the public.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Loggerhead Shrike at OSU - YES
The Loggerhead Shrike originally found by Irina Shulgina was relocated by myself and others at 10:30 this morning. It continued to show itself when I left at 11:30. It is favoring the trees in the western portion of the cow pasture, but was last seen on the northern section of fence near the bee lab. Patience is required, as the bird was doing its best to stay low and out of the wind.

I bit of an aside, but I was able to read the color bands on its legs (white over green - left, yellow - right) and found out some cool information about it. It was hatched in Ontario last summer, and released in July from one of their breeding programs in an effort to boost the population size.

Bird on!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Louisiana Waterthushes (4) Stebbin's Gulch
Hi,

Four Louisiana Waterthrushes were found on our survey hike in Stebbin's
Gulch at the Holden Arboretum this morning. The phenology of this species
on the extreme northern edge of its breeding range can only be described as
clock like. We find them every year on or about April 1 in their preferred
breeding habitat along high quality running water. They are always heard
as well as seen when they arrive.

Given the relatively mild winter we have been searching for them for the
past 3 weeks to no avail. April 1 is the date warm or cold. By about the
3rd week in April breeding territories are established.

Also found this morning was a singing Winter Wren. An expected but
irregular breeding species here on the front of the Allegheny Plateau.

Haans

Subject: [Ohio-birds] SciotoGrandview,4-02:rookery,eagle,migrants
This morning, I stopped at several spots along the Scioto River from the Long Street Dam and Grandview up to Griggs dam, including the Shrum Mound Quarry rookery. The rookery seems to be gearing up quickly - I saw 100+ cormorants, 80+ Great Blue Herons, and 8 Great Egrets, all building or defending nests. I also had lots of commuting herons & cormorants up and down the river. Other species of note included:

Blue-winged Teal - 5 of them were in a small flock in the Shrum Mound Quarry Lake
HoodedMergansers - a pair were in the river along the bikepath by Marble Cliff
Bald Eagle - an adult was perched along the river at Marble Cliff
E.Phoebes - singles were at many locations, totaling perhaps 5-6 all morning
Tree Swallows - many birds scattered along the river searching for nesting snags
Brown Creepers - at least 2 were in the riparian area below Griggs Dam
Winter Wren - 1 was singing in the riparian strip along the bikepath at Marble Cliff
Kinglets - only Golden-crowns, but they're still quite common; Griggs had the most with 10
Cedar Waxwings - a pair was at Marble Cliff, while another single was at Griggs
Warblers - still only Yellow-rumps, and they were not very common
Tree Sparrows - a small flock of 5 was feeding along the edge of the disc golf course below Griggs dam
Chipping Sparrows - singing birds were at both Marble Cliff and Griggs
Fox Sparrow - 1 was calling along the edge of the disc golf course below Griggs dam
Blackbirds - Red-wings, Grackles, and cowbirds were all numerous, especially cowbirds

I was at Sims Park in Euclid today (Cuyahoga County) from  2:15 to 3:35pm today.  I initially was just going to look for landbirds but when I saw Scaup from the bluff I got the scope.  Most ducks east of pier.  I counted approx. 115 Scaup (which I can't ID which ones) and at least 37 Common Goldeneye.  Also, the three female Long-tailed Ducks were still there--together mixed in with Scaup/Goldeneye. Small numbers of Red-breasted Mergansers and a Common Loon.  In the park other than multiple hundreds of Grackles, Starlings and a few Red-winged Blackbirds the only birds I could find of interest were two Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers closer to parking lot east of Henn Mansion.  There were approx. 6 Golden-crowned Kinglets east of the driveway.
I was at Villa Angela/Wildwood Parks from 11:15 TO 2pm.  Also, not particular birdy for me today but there were approx 6 Fox Sparrows in Villa Angela near entrance to field/near birch/alder woods and some were singing when I first saw them. Also, two Northern Mockingbirds near creek and woods in Wildwood, only five Golden-crowned Kinglets, still more Song Sparrows, one Eastern Phoebe in Villa Angela in wet woods, many Robins, two White-throated Sparrows, one B. Creeper and male Eastern Towhee.  In the marina was one Common Loon who was not diving, two Horned Grebes, Bufflehead, four Coots and still one Pied-billed Grebe in the wetland/creek area.

Blendon Woods is showing lots of late straggler and early migrant activity this afternoon. An hour spent around the nature Center,Goldenrod Trail, and Lake Trail found a good list of birds, including

waterfowl - Thoreau lake had small#s, but good diversity, with Wood, Black, Shoveler, Gadwall, LesserScaup, and Ring-necked Ducks still present
Red-headed Woodpecker - an adult was still foraging along the pipeline cut on the Lake Trail
E.Phoebes - 2-3 were foraging along the Lake Trail
Tree Swallows - a flock of 40 were fluttering over Thoreau Lake gleaning a few insects
BrownCreepers - at least 2 were along the Lake Trail
Kinglets - only Golden-crowns, but there were plenty of them
Gnatcatcher - a Blue-gray was hanging around the Nature Center area (I also had one at Berliner Park this morning, so they may have moved in on a broad-front)
Warblers - only Yellow-rumped, but there were 3-4 of them along the Lake Trail
Tree Sparrow - still 1 hanging out around the Nature Center feeders
Field Sparrows - 2-3 were singing in meadows along the Goldenrod & Lake Trails
Fox Sparrows - 1 was foraging under the feeders at the Nature Center

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Great Cormorant update
Hi all- at 7:50 am this morning I found a Great Cormorant on the outer breakwall off Wendy Park. This is undoubtably the same individual from March/April 2016 (found in 2016 by Todd Eiben). The bird frequented the breakwall near the lighthouse throughout the morning and afternoon. As of 4:30 pm today, I'm receiving negative reports. Photos and video on Ohio Chase Birds Facebook page.

The next mystery to solve is--- where does this bird spend the summer?

Currently over 400 Double-created Cormorants on the breakwalls today. Iceland (first cyc) and Glaucous (first cyc) plus 8 Lesser Black-backed Gulls.

very good viewing/photographing distance (at 3:00 pm anyway). One male
Hooded Merganser with six females also at the sw end; one male with a
couple of females at northern end. KIngfisher perched on post of
boardwalk at northern end for the longest time, occasionally diving and
then returning to post (too bad didn't have camera with me). Hooded
Grebes scattered about as well; one Lesser Scaup.

Even the drizzly morning couldn't slow the steady progress of migrants and returning nesters this morning along the Scioto River in Columbus. I stopped at both Scioto Audubon and Berliner Parks, and found a steady movement of early temperate migrants. Included among the notable birds were:

Great Egret - at least 1 was stalking around the bay at Scioto Audubon
Cormorants - 8 fishing in the rain-swollen river was an interesting sight
Bald Eagles - 1 adult and 2 juveniles in Berliner speak to a family group from last year
Osprey - a pair were soaring together over Scioto Audubon
Flickers - 2 at each site were unusual for such an urban area
E.Phoebes - 2 at Scioto and 4 at Berliner continue the strong Spring showing of this early migrant
BrownCreepers - 6 in the riparian woods of Berliner speak to a movement of these guys
WinterWrens - single birds were singing at both Scioto Audubon and Berliner
Kingelts - lots of Golden-cronws (18+), but also found a single Ruby-crown (at Scioto)
HermitThrush - 1 was foraging along the edge of the bikepath at Berliner
Chipping Sparrows - 2 were at Scioto Audubon, but weren't singing on this chilly overcast morning
FieldSparrow - 1 was singing in the overgrown field at Berliner Park
Juncos - a few were still scattered between both parks
Cowbirds - they've arrived in force, with double-digit squealing males at both parks

Subject: [Ohio-birds] 14 Dead turkeys
This morning about 9:00, one of my big dogs walked into the yard carrying A DEAD TURKEY. This dog is definitely not stealthy enough to have a caught a live turkey, so I assumed he had found a dead one and just brought it home. I buried the creature in the garden. Half an hour later, the dog showed up with another dead turkey. Now I had to investigate. Followed the dog back into the woods, and was shocked to find another 12 dead turkeys. Then I realized what apparently had happened. Lightning had struck the tree under which the birds were standing, and killed them all. I have actually seen this sort of thing once before, when I was a kid on my grandfather's farm in Virginia. That time it was about twenty sheep. We were only about 100 yards away, and were lucky it wasn't us.
I hear turkeys nearly every morning in the spring, so I already have it as a year yard bird.It's sad to think that a whole flock might have been wiped out, but some might have been far enough away that they could have survived. (Some of the sheep did). At any rate, twelve turkeys definitely fill up the front loader on a Kubota tractor. I'm thinking about preparing one for dinner tonight. Anyone have any recipes for wild turkey?

11:45 seen again. It is about 75 yards to the left (west) of the
lighthouse. It is by a rectangular block that is tilted to look like a
diamond. It is being observed from the hill top. This is at Wendy Park in
Cleveland.

This is NOT an April Fool's joke.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] More new species...
The American Ornithologists'Union has again proposed a lot of changes in
the official list of North American birds. Just like last year, it seems
that a mix-master has again been employed on our knowledge of our birds.
Proposals for this years' changes can be read at
http://checklist.aou.org/assets/proposals/PDF/2017-C.pdf . These
proposals will be scrutinized, and those accepted will change the
official AOU list of North American birds....until next year's set of
proposals are accepted.
In days gone by, changes in the relatively stable AOU list were caused
by the collection of some bird from the south found north of the US
border of Texas, or the discovery of the corpse of an interesting
pelagic species washed up on a beach in Oregon. DNA technologies have
changed our understanding.
Schlubs like us, without expensive machines to tease apart DNA strands,
are advised to rewrite checklists, adding or subtracting new or old
species, changing the order of checklists to reflect new knowledge, and
change scientific (and common) names to comply. With new techniques for
studying birds, the yearly proposals from the AOU as to our
understanding of our birdlife always offer new surprises.
Because most of this new knowledge comes from the application of
expensive machinery and exacting expertise upon a limited number of
specimens, the new species are pretty hard to understand. We thought we
had reached a level of understanding about species, and this was a
signal that the days when accumulations of specimens were necessary had
gone by. Now, however, a tray full of Bell's vireos may be described in
more than one way--perhaps many ways: so far it's proposed we can
distinguish (with advanced technology) Least and Bell's Vireos. These
are described as full species, not subspecies. Vocalizations can be
analyzed and discriminated, as can be food choices, ranges, and habitat
preferences.
Among other proposals, it is suggested we should split Bell's vireo,
brown creeper, and Nashville warbler, and lump Thayer's and Iceland
gulls. Chemistry reigns. Most intriguing perhaps is the list of new
species based on adding Greenland to the North American avifauna....
Enjoy, but forget those lists!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Loony Day!
Similar to the begining of the week, I took the last day in March to finish
up the North Eastern side of Ohio. k I visited Waynetage, Trimble
Mahoning and Columbiana counties. Some places were great, some I was glad
I had a second place to visit in that county. :-D
Here is all the places I went:

Funk Bottoms
Shreve Lake Wildlife Area
Sippo Lake
Meyers Lake
Deer Creek
Berlin Lake
Lake Milton
Mosquito Creek
Guilford Lake
Zeppernick

All of the lakes I visited today we're averageing about two to three
Common Loons till Mosquito Creek where I topped out at 13 between the
cemetery hill hotspot to the dam/State Park area...Then I went to little,
tiny by comparison to places like Findlay Reservoirs, Guilford Lake in
Columbiana County...I had an asylum, cry, loomery, raft, or water
dance(take your pick of noun) of 47 Common Loons!! Never had I seen so
many in one place, and at such a small lake.

Other highlights of the day for me were 5 Long-tailed Ducks at Lake
Milton, and 5 Canvasback Ducks at Mosquito Lake.

Pretty much the lists were the same otherwise...Typical spring ducks.

Gotta love it when you have a day off. :-D

Happy birding and God bless!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Pectoral Sandpipers & other migrants- Huron Co.
Fog and rain this morning kept migrants mostly grounded. But as the fog lifted there were some obvious new arrivals. Working in Lyme and Sherman Townships of NW Huron County I noticed my first tree swallows of the year pushing forward into the light north winds. Numbers increased throughout the day. A single great egret stood next to a 1/4-acre pond and seemed out of place. And American pipits in good numbers were rising and falling as they fed here and there. But the most impressive migrants seen were possibly 1,000 pectoral sandpipers wheeling northward over the wet farmlands. In an hour I watched 8 different flocks of up to 200 birds flying low in typical shorebird flocks. A couple of these circled and landed briefly in some sheet water ponds just out of view.

I had a good long look at a juvenile northern shrike, at Frohing Meadows
an hour ago. The mask is very, very faint. It was off the path around the old wetland,
on the Savage Road side of the pond.

Also at least 18 snipesaw 15 or so in flight, and could still hear them calling from
the ground. A light rain had left me almost alone at Frohring today, which is
a rare treat in this crowded little spot.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Cuyahoga Valley National Park - Rockside Wetlands location - Cuyahoga County
I have received a few emails asking where the Rockside Road Wetlands are located in the Cuyahoga Valley. They are not mentioned on the National Park map.

The wetlands are just to the west of the Rockside Road train station for the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.

The wetlands were also not mentioned on the Ohio eBird Hotspot web page that covered this area. But, thanks to Ken Ostermiller, they are now.

http://ohioebirdhotspots.wikispaces.com/Rockside+Station

In case anyone is interested in visiting another wetlands in the same area just to the south (maybe to try to see or hear those elusive soras), you can go birding at the Brookside Road Marsh area. In the past I have seen and heard the soras in the marsh close to the intersection of the maintenance road and the railroad tracks.
