Subject: [Ohio-birds] AlumCreekLake,OlentangyRavines,6-19: vireos,tanagers,chat
I took a few hours this morning to visit some spots at Alum Creek Lake
State Park (the beach and the marina), then went over to scour some of the
wilder ravines of the Olentangy bluffs (Seymour Woods, Shale Hollow,
Highbanks). The water level at the lake was stunningly high -- essentially
there was no beach at the beach, and the marina picnic area was under 3
feet of water. Still, the birds seemed nonplussed, and I had a good June
day, with notables including

Gulls - a small flock of 27 Ring-bills was up in the grass at the 'beach'
Hummers - male Ruby-throats were on territories in all the ravines
Flycatchers - Acadians were common in all the ravines, while the only
Willow was near the Visitors Center at Alum Creek lake

Vireos - Red-eyed were one of the most common birds of the morning, but
there were also good numbers of Yellow-throated Vireos, topped by 3 at
Seymour Woods

Thrushes - only Wood Thrushes, and they were not common. Highbanks topped
with 4.

Mimids - Catbirds were abundant, especially at Alum Creek lake. The only
Thrasher was there singing at the beach area.

Warblers - Louisiana Waterthrushes were in ravines at Seymour and
Highbanks, while Hooded Warblers were singing in blowdowns in both of these
parks as well. The only Parulas and Yellow-throated were at Highbanks.

Tanagers - Scarlets were at many places; they seem to be having a great
summer locally. Summers were at Seymour Woods and Highbanks, typical
locations

Chat - 1 was singing in the pocket prairie at Shale Hollow

Orioles - not much in evidence; Alum Creek Lake had only single Baltimore
and Orchard

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Denison Bio preserve Sunday
Despite the oppressive heat & humidity, I had a productive afternoon visit.

Best bird was a close Yellow-breasted Chat, at first silent but then it did some soft vocalizing. I believe I actually saw 2 birds. A real treat!

Only other warblers were Yellow, Blue-winged (heard only) and Com YT. I thought I heard a Redstart but never spotted it.

Indigo Buntings, Wood Thrush, Field Sparrows with young, Tree Swallows going to nest boxes. Lots of House Wrens. E Towhees and catbirds galore. Great Blue Heron, TVs and a couple Black Vultures on the drive back to Granville.

Some cool butterflies as well, most of which I’ll have to look up...

Subject: [Ohio-birds] New Ohio eBird shared bird reporting hotspots are active
Thanks to all in the Ohio eBird community who have submitted suggestions
of eBird hotspots, tips for birding, and photos of hotspots.

This week we added a number of new eBird shared bird reporting hotspots in
Ohio. Check the latest post in the "What's New . . ." blog of the Ohio
ebird Hotspot website for details on new and updated hotspots:
https://birding-in-ohio.com/whats-new-june-15-2019/

There are new hotspots in Portage and Ross counties and updated hotspots in
Ashland, Medina, Preble, and Warren counties.

Ohio Birding Day Hikes, a new feature of the website, is under development.
This week we added 34 new descriptions of day hikes.
I need your help. I would like to add at least one Birding Day Hike for
each county in Ohio. I would like to add hikes suggested by Ohio birders.
Please let me know if you have a good hike in your county that we should
add.

Ken Ostermiller
eBird Hotspot reviewer for Ohio

Well I had my garage door open again this morning. And when I went out to go shopping Downy was back!
Well I was glad that the screen was still out. I opened the window and closed the garage door.
Thankfully he had left when I returned.
I have no idea what he comes in for? I don’t store food there.
Sometimes we just don’t know.
Trust God.

Hopefully I haven’t bent the rules.
Sorry If I have.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] BlacklickWoods,6-11:Red-headedWpr,HoodedWarblers
A visit to this southeast Columbus Metropark found lots of summer
residents, plus a few surprises. The cool morning seemed to keep birds
active longer, but the dense vegetation made listening all that much more
important. Notables included:

Red-headed Woodpecker - an adult was calling from a snag in the Sassafras
picnic area
Flycatchers - lots of Pewees, fewer Acadians, 2-3 E.Phoebes, 2 Great
Cresteds, and only 1 Willow Flycatcher
Vireos - single White-eyed and Yellow-throated, but 4-5 Red-eyed
Thrushes - 8-9 Wood Thrushes were along the woodland trail loops
Mimids - lots of Catbirds, but also had a family group of Brown Thrashers
Warblers - 2 Hooded Warblers continue to sing on territories along the
Beech-Maple Trail loops. Also had Yellow-throated and ComYellowthroat
Buntings,Grosbeaks - 4-5 Indigo Buntings, but no grosbeaks
Sparrows - nothing other than the expected Chipping-Field-Song-Towhee
quartet

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Downy woodpecker
Need some help. I have a Downy woodpecker in my garage all day. I have the garage door open. It perches up high and only flys around high. Never low where it might fly out. I pulled car out.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Trumpeter Swan Breeding Survey for Ohio - 2019
 To all Ohio Birders:
The Ohio Bird Records Committee (OBRC) is making a special effort to document the breeding successes of Ohio Trumpeter Swans (TRUS) for this 2019 breeding season, and we are asking for your help, as follows:- If/when you see a Trumpeter Swan family (parent or parents with baby Cygnets; usually by mid-June), please report these sightings to e-Bird, to any of the birding Facebook groups, to the Ohio Birds list-serve, or to the OBRC (see the OOS Website). We will be monitoring all of the above for these reports.- For each report, it is important to include the date and location, as well as the number of parents and cygnets. If possible, also include a 'family' photo (even cell phone photos), and if one or both parents have neck or other bands/tags, try to record or photograph the numbers/letters and colors. Later reports of the same family are also important. How many of these cygnets will survive the required 4+ months until they can fly?
We are also focusing on WHERE TRUS is now successfully breeding in Ohio. We are currently informed of nesting pairs mostly in some of the NW Ohio Lake Erie marshes, and are seeking information for areas in NE Ohio (including the Grand River WA and Mosquito Lake area, etc.), E Central Ohio (including habitat all along the Killbuck Marshes and Funk WA, etc.), W Central Ohio (including Killdeer Plains WA, Big Island WA, Mercer WA, etc.), SW Ohio (including Miami Whitewater Wetlands, etc.) as well as ANY other location in Ohio! Any and all information is welcomed. This and other sources of TRUS breeding range survey information (past and present) may result in a future Ohio checklist designation change for this species, from review-list to non-review-list. TRUS is currently designated by ODNR as a Threatened species for Ohio.
Thanks in advance for your contributions!
Dan Sanders<dsanderling...> the OBRC

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Battelle-Darby,6-09: VirginiaRail,Henslow'sSpw
I stopped at several spots around Battelle-Darby MetroPark, including Cedar
Ridge and the Teal Trail. The muskrats have really opened up the marsh at
the Teal Trail, and one was even nonchalantly sitting on his den chewing on
some reeds. Nothing terribly unexpected bird-wise, but some unusual birds
were around, including

Virginia Rail - 1 was walking along the east part of the Teal Trail
CommonMoorhen - 1 was calling from the marsh at the Teal Trail
Blue-winged Teal - 3-4 were in the pond at the Teal Trail
Flycatchers - nothing unusual, but lots of Pewees & Acadians at Cedar
Ridge, Willows on the Teal Trail
Vireos - White-eyed, Yellow-throated, and lots of Red-eyed at Cedar Ridge
Wrens - 5-6 Marsh Wrens were singing along the east limb of the Teal Trail
Warblers - the expected Yellow, Parulas, Yellow-throated, and
ComYellowthroats
Summer Tanager - 1 was calling along the eastern margin of Cedar Ridge
Henslow's Sparrow - 1 was singing near the entrance to the Teal Trail

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Shaker Lakes June 9
Hi everyone,

We went to one of our favorite local places, the Nature Center at Shaker
Lakes (between Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights), and as usual looked
forward to a walk around Lower Lake. Around the Nature Center there was not
much variety:

Wood Duck female with two very small ducklings
American Robin (lots)
Common Grackle
Great Crested Flycatcher (heard)
Red-winged Blackbird
Gray Catbird
House Sparrow

Then we were surprised to discover that Lower Lake has been drained--the
Sewer District is doing restoration work on the dam. We don't doubt it was
necessary--I'm pretty sure the earthen dam was constructed by the Shakers.
A fence was constructed all the way around the lake. Probably
necessary--the lake bed is not hard, but soft mud, apparently hazardous.
However, I think the fence is at an exaggerated distance from the lake,
cutting off trails that didn't obviously have to be closed--at least, it
wasn't obvious to me...

There's still a small stream running through the lake bed, with those big
carp, now much easier pickings, I imagine. So, we had:

Bald Eagle--a juvenile (2nd year, I thought), eating a fish on the mud,
until it was chased by a
Ring-billed Gull
Great Blue Heron--I don't know if they use WhatsApp or FB to alert each
other about the easy-to-catch herons, but there were a lot of them--at
least 17 on Lower Lake!

Our last sighting was a snapping turtle. Far from the largest we've seen
there—the shell was probably about a foot long—

on returning home, I turned on the TV to find the Portuguese national
soccer team being awarded the EUFA cup on Univisión. Hmmm, maybe we should
have watched the game instead...(I don't really think that!)

Best wishes,

Steve Cagan
Cleveland Heights,
Cuyahoga County

Subject: [Ohio-birds] ClearCreek,6-08: warblers,thrushes,cuckoos
The Columbus Audubon trip to this MetroPark was greeted with a cloudy, cool
day that made for a great morning. We visited the Creekside Meadows Trail,
Hemlock Trail, and Fern Trail, as well as along the main road between
them. While we did see many birds, we only heard some of our target
species, being particularly frustrated by wily warblers. Still, the
morning had lots of good birds, including:

hawks - Red-shoulders and Broad-wings were over the valley, along with
vultures and 1 Red-tail

cuckoos - they became more vocal as the day wore on -- had calling
Yellow-bills at 4-5 different spots

flycatchers - Acadians were abundant, but Pewees were scarce and Willows
were downright rare. Also had 2 Great Cresteds right at the Starner Rd
parking area

vireos - heard White-eyed and Blue-headed, but actually saw Yellow-throated
and Red-eyed (which were singing all over the valley)

thrushes - had singing Wood Thrushes, Hermit Thrushes, and Veeries, and
managed to get looks at all 3

warblers - lots of American Redstarts, mostly along the Creekside Trail.
Also had decent numbers of Yellows, Ovenbirds, and ComYellowthroats, with
smaller numbers of Black&Whites, Parulas, Yellow-throated, Ceruleans (heard
only), LaWaterthrushes, Black-thr.Greens, and Hoodeds. Only heard 2
Worm-eating and singles of Kentucky and Blue-winged

tanagers - heard several Scarlets, but couldn't actually see them. No
Summers

grosbeaks,buntings - 1 Rose-br.Grosbeak was along the Creekside Trail
early, and only a few Indigo Buntings were singing in the creekside meadows

Subject: [Ohio-birds] New Ohio eBird shared bird reporting hotspots are active
Thanks to all in the Ohio eBird community who have submitted suggestions
of eBird hotspots, tips for birding, and photos of hotspots.

This week we added a number of new eBird shared bird reporting hotspots in
Ohio. Check the latest post in the "What's New . . ." blog of the Ohio
ebird Hotspot website for details on new and updated hotspots:
https://birding-in-ohio.com/whats-new-june-8-2019/

Please look at the new feature, Ohio Birding Day Hikes, and suggest a day
hike which could be added at your favorite place to hike and watch birds.

There are new hotspots in Columbiana, Geauga, Greene, Mahoning, and Medina
counties. There are updates to hotspot pages in Clark, Franklin, and Wayne
counties.

Also, check the newly created maps of hotspots in parks or wildlife areas
where there are many sub-locations.

I agree, it appears to be a female and young Hooded Merg. Look at the beak of the young bird, narrow and long. If you want to compare it with other photos of young Hoodeds, go to the Cornell site here,

I think that this is a female red-breasted merganser traveling with a female ruddy duck. It doesn't have a crest like a juvenile merganser would.



Can you confirm from these pics?

Subject: Re: [Ohio-birds] Birders Who Find Rarities And Those Who Just Chase
Why don't you folks let the people bird watch as they like to bird
watch and not be so critical to them. Chasers are bird watchers,
listers are bird watchers, they are doing it in a way that is fun and
enjoyable to them. Each and every activity on this planet has the
superstars; the people who work hard at what they do, to be the best
and I do applaud them. These are the people who are the cutting edge
who find the next level. Then there are those who are the masses the
people who participant in ways that meet their life style. Remember
they are a voice! They may not be in the field each weekend or
studying weather conditions but they are paying attention to the birds
and the declines in populations. I know a husband and a wife who are
very wealthy. They work hard at their business they have little time
to spend in the field. They do chase the rarities but I do know they
personally donate thousands of dollars each year to conservation
groups like The Nature Conservancy, Ducks Unlimited, and yes they do
buy duck stamps to support the National Wildlife Refuges. If you are a
bird watcher or a professional in the avian field I bet you have spent
time on property that was purchased and maintained by one of the above
organizations. Chasers and listers they are but they are paying
attention to the needs of the birds.

I always enjoy Bob’s posts and this one was no exception. I
think what Bob is saying can be summed up in one of my favorite
sayings, especially to our new bird class participants is : THERE IS
NO SUBSTITUTION FOR TIME SPENT IN THE FIELD. HAPPY BIRDING Mary

am shocked that not a single response to this has appeared on the
listserv! Haans can post a haiku and it gets tonnage of blowback but
Bob borderline calls non rarity finders "slackers" and.... crickets.
LOL My applause does indeed go to those rarity finders who are
slogging it out, day after day, teeing up the juicy birds. Even more
so, however, I applaud their dutiful spouses. Yes, these patient
behind-the-scenes doers are the real heroes, taking care of home
responsibilities while their birder better half (or not?) flakes off
again for a day in the field. Without them, all of our parasitic life
lists might be sorely lacking. I thank you dear homebound spouses.

Sharing residence and birding time equally between Mahoning County,
Ohio and The Gulf Coast of Florida, I thought a posting to The Florida
Birdbrains Listserv this morning might be of interest and also apply
to birders in Ohio. With spring migrants about to arrive, I would like
to once again share my thoughts, about why some birders always seem to
be the chosen ones finding the new and out of the ordinary birds. Are
they lucky to be the birder to find the rarities, sometimes; but most
of the time they know where and when to look. They also explore new
potential birding sites. And also, the most important factor, is that
they are out there putting the time in, day in and day out, not just
when there is a rarity reported. There is a definite reason that some
people are the ones that seem to always be finding and reporting the
good birds. The following is a modified version of a previous posting.

The listers and chasers of the state are primed and ready to enjoy and
record the new spring arrivals. As someone who has also listed and has
chased his fair share of birds wherever they may be, I am always
grateful for the reports and calls when a new bird is discovered. And
oddly enough, those reports inevitably come from the same people, time
and time again. Scour e-bird, the listserves, and Facebook groups, and
you will find that a handful of people find these birds and report
them with vigor. Then the comments begin, is that person lucky, or so
and so found another one. Uncanny! Right! In truth, not at all. The
reason these people find and report so many birds is pretty darn
simple: they actually go birding!! These are not folks who sit around
with phone in hand waiting for a buzz or a beep to alert them of a new
target, or stare at a computer screen to tell them where a new bird
is. These are the folks who hit their local patches day in and day
out. Before work. After work. On weekends. Rain or shine. They find
birds. These are the folks who understand patterns, weather, timing,
habitats, and who possess an intense understanding of when and where
to actually look for birds. With field experience comes the knowledge
that a field guide (you know that dusty book nobody seems to use
anymore), cannot teach. These are people who think about under birded
areas and actively set out to see what they can find. They all deserve
a hearty round of applause for their contributions to not only science
and the understanding of our feathered friends, but for your own
state/county lists as well. You folks know who you are, and I, for
one, am incredibly grateful. So with spring migration looming on the
horizon, I challenge all the listers and chasers of the state to do
the unheard of: Go out and bird people! Just go out and bird! Get out
in the field and actually observe birds. Take note of flight styles,
plumage, feeding behaviors, songs and calls, and the habitats of the
most common birds, so that when something seems visually different or
you hear a new sound, you will actually notice it and hopefully
identify it. Let's all try to take some of the weight off of these
diligent rarity finders, and maybe bolster your own rep in the
process. Here's to another great rewarding season of birding

I was unable to find the Chestnut-sided Warbler in almost 2 hours of

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Groveport,6-03: Egrets,Ovenbird
I had a little time after work and visited several spots around this south
Columbus suburb, including Cruiser Pon, the Groveport canal towpath, and
Walnut Woods Metropark. Mostly good numbers of expected residents, but a
few unusual sightings, including

Great Egrets - a flock of 20+ has developed around a flooded farm field
along Old Hamilton Rd south of Cruiser Park. They seem to forage in the
field, then roost over at Cruiser Pond.

Cuckoos - continuing their strong showing, with birds at towpath park &
Walnut Woods

Ovenbird - 1 was singing in the oak forest at the Tall pines section of
Walnut Woods. Given their proclivity to nest in oak forests, this might be
a good sign.

Chat - 1 was singing near the parking lot at Tall Pines. I didn't check
the fields along the Kestrel Trail here, where many have set up territories
in the past few years

Rose-br.Grosbeak - 1 was singing at the western edge of Towpath park
(Blacklick Park in Groveport), a new spot for this species now rare close
to Columbus

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Another June first for Washington County--Spotted Sandpiper
For the second day in a row, I encountered a species in Washington County
for which there are no June records in eBird.

It was a Spotted Sandpiper at the Veto Lake Dam, where I've seen them
several times before in May.

Although likely a late migrant, it might possibly be a breeding bird. I
note that the first Ohio Breeding Bird Atlas did report a bird in western
Washington County at what looks like Veto Lake. I'll check again in a few
days.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Clear Creek Metro Park today
V pleasant day to be out birding even if I wasn’t able to get to Clear Creek super early.

Birding mostly by ear & nothing unexpected. Female Hooded Warbler seen carrying food & chipping at me so nest prob wasn’t too far away. No Tanagers.

Had a close Kentucky Warbler singing but only had a brief glimpse thru thick tangles. Hermit & Wood Thrushes singing.

Redstarts, all males, were the most numerous Warbler, vocal and showing well. Saw one flycatching which was cool.

Nice looks at a silent Brown Thrasher.

Red-shouldered Hawks were quite vocal as were Pileated WPs. Acadian FCs, E Wood Peewees, E Phoebe; White-eyed, Yellow-throated & Red-eyed Vireos.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] CedarBog-MadRiver,6-02:SandhillCrane,cuckoos,MagnoliaW
We made our annual trek to Cedar Bog to see orchids, among other plants,
and wound up with a decent birding day. We also stopped at two parks in
the Mad River valley near Springfield - Snyder Park and the Mad River Gorge
- and added to the totals. Best birds were

Sandhill Crane - one was calling south of Cedar Bog early in the morning.
Is there a summering group here?

Yellow-billed Cuckoos - Cedar Bog had 5+ calling, while Mad River Gorge
added 1 more

Flycatchers - Pewees, Acadians, and Great Cresteds at nearly all 3 sites.
An Alder was calling right by the museum at the entrance to Cedar Bog

Vireos - Red-eyed and Warbling at all spots; Cedar bog added a White-eyed,
while Mad River Gorge chipped in a Yellow-throated

Thrushes - nothing but a few Wood Thrushes at Cedar Bog

Warblers - N.Parulas at each site, and Snyder & Mad River Gorge had
Yellow-throated. Cedar Bog had a bunch of ComYellowthroats and Yellows,
but also had a late singing Magnolia Warbler. Snyder had a singing
American Redstart

Buntings,Grosbeaks - Indigo Buntings were at every site, while the only
Rose-br.Grosbeak was singing at Cedar Bog

Chat,Orioles - 2 Chats were singing at Cedar Bog, and that site also had
single Baltimore and Orchard Orioles. Mad River Gorge had 3-4 singing
Baltimore Orioles.

Interesting observation. I think that it is possibly a late migrant; however two comments caught my attention, it was located in an area where there was possibly little if any birding ans secondly that there are possibility of few birders making observations. I hope that you can find it in the next couple of days. Please report as the habitat that you describe is typical breeding habitat.

Cheers,

Bob

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Chestnut-sided Warbler in Washington County--Migrant or Possible Nester?

This morning, June 2, while birding in Gunlock Park, a small hardwood regeneration project park with many shrubs, saplings, and small open areas located between the Walmart and Lowe's stores along Route 7 just east of I-77 and the Ohio River, I encountered a singing male Chestnut-sided Warbler. I originally heard it, then saw it for about 10-15 seconds when it perched briefly in an opening in the saplings.

There are no June or July eBird records for this species in Washington or any of the surrounding counties, though that may be due mostly to the fact there are few birders regularly birding in those counties. I see that the online version of the first Ohio Breeding Bird Atlas also has no breeding records. I assume the second Ohio Atlas also does not, though I do not have access to it. Can anyone confirm that?

Thus, it is likely that this bird is a very late migrant, though June seems awfully late to me. Perhaps the bird is just practicing its song on its way further north. If as is likely, there is not a possible mate in the area, I expect that it will move on. In any event, I will check the area in a few days to see if it's still around.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Annual Berlin Lake Area Osprey Nest Count
This morning, Thursday, from about 7:30AM to about 11:00AM, my wife Denise and I did our annual check on this years active Osprey nests and also the abundance of Cliff Swallows in and centered around the Berlin Lake Area. Berlin Lake stretches thru three counties in northeastern Ohio, the western edge of Mahoning, the southeastern corner of Portage, and the northeastern corner of Stark, with its source, The Mahoning River extending to its headwaters in Columbiana County. Thirty active nest sites were found this year, with six new locations, minus two that had been removed. Of the nests, 20 are on cell towers, 4 on transmission towers, 4 on wooden utility poles, and 2 on wooden hacking structures, all provided by man. Amazing is the fact that during The Ohio Breeding Bird Atlas of 1982 thru 1987, there were no Osprey nests recorded in Ohio. A brief description of Berlin Lake taken from US Army Corps Of Engineers data is, in summer the length of the lake at normal pool is 18.6 miles long, with 70 miles of shoreline, and a maximum depth of 76 feet at the dam. To anyone wishing to observe an Osprey nest up close and personal, go to the southeast corner of SR225 and Greenbower Road, a short distance north of the city of Alliance. The nest is about twenty-five above the edge of the road. Look for the House Sparrows residing in the lower part of the nest. The Berlin Lake Osprey count by the end of the summer could be, with an average of two youngsters per nest, an amazing total of one hundred and twenty. Six Bald Eagle nests were also accounted for, which could bring their local count to twenty-four. Also, as for the local Cliff Swallow population, it seems to be booming. We found nesting at eight bridge locations and The Berlin Lake Dam. On the inlet structure above the dam, were approximately 190 nests being constructed and already occupied, attached to and around the concrete face. 65 nests can easily be seen on the west side of the structure. For e-birders, the inlet structure and the US224 Bridge are both in Mahoning County. These two locations have the most numerous nests. The eastern portion of the concrete dam is in Mahoning County, while part of the western portion is in Portage County. Berlin Lake spillway discharges into the Mahoning River hemlock laden rocky gorge, also in Mahoning County. Of interest is the fact that all the parking areas at the dam are in Portage County. Something else of interest this season, is the fact that Prothonotary Warblers can easily be found at the north end of The Berlin Lake Trail, and at Teel Avenue west of SR225. What a pleasurable three and a half hour morning adventure close to home.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] northAlumCreekLake,5-28 - Broad-wings, cuckoos
I visited several spots around the north end of this Reservoir southeast of
Delaware, finding lots of residents and few migrants. The water level is
still very high, so the Hogback Basin was useless for shorebirds or
waders. But stops at Howard Rd bridge, Hogback Rd, and Hogback Preserve
found:

Broad-winged Hawks - 1 was calling over Hogback Rd, whiel another was
diving on a Red-tail over the Howard Rd boat launch

Osprey - all 4 platforms at Hogback Rd seem to have nests, and adult birds
could be seen all around the upper reservoir

cuckoos - Yellow-billeds were calling at Hogback Rd and Hogback Preserve

flycatchers - lots of Pewees, Acadians, and Great Cresteds in the forest at
all 3 of these sites

vireos - Warbling & Red-eyed were common near the reservoir shore, and
Yellow-throated were in the forest at Howard Rd and Hogback Preserve

thrushes - only a few singing Woods were at Hogback Preserve

warblers - not very many, but did have LaWaterthrushes at hogback Rd and
Hogback Preserve. Yellows were widespread, as were ComYellowthroats, while
N.Parulas were around the Howard rd bridge, as was a singing Hooded.
Prothonotaries were at Hogback Rd and Howard Rd launch area

buntings,grosbeak - Indigo Buntings were widespread, while the only
Rose-br.Grosbeak was singing at Howard Rd bridge

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Battelle-Darby,5-27 - strays,part2
The field trip on Sunday didn't get into the main forest block of this
MetroPark southeast of Columbus, so I visited them yesterday. I hiked the
Trail of Ancients, Terrace Trail, and Dyer's Mill Trail looking for
rarities and late migrants. No obvious migrants, but good numbers of
resident birds and a few provocative strays made the morning interesting,
including

cuckoos - lots of Yellow-bills calling, including 3 along the Dyer's Mill
Trail

flycatchers - good numbers of Pewees, Acadians, and Great Cresteds in the
forest blocks along the Terrace and Dyer's Mill Trails. E.Kingbirds were
in the meadows at Trail of Ancients and Dyer's Mill Trail

vireos - Red-eyed were dominant, but also had a few Warbling and
Yellow-throated, and one White-eyed along Dyer's Mill

thrushes - nothing but singing Wood Thrushes, and not all that many of them

warblers - N.Parulas and Yellow-throateds at many places along the Darby
Creeks, and Com.Yellowthroats were abundant in some meadow areas. Kentucky
Warblers continue to do well along the Terrace Trail, with 3 singing
males. More unusual were a Cerulean singing along the Terrace Trail
(unusual location, as they're rare in the Darby Plains) and a
Chestnut-sided singing in perfect habitat along the Dyer's Mill Trail

Tanagers - Scarlets in several spots along both Terrace and Dyer's Mill
Trails. A single Summer along the Terrace Trail was superseded by 3 along
the Dyer's Mill Trail

Chat,Orioles - a single Chat was at the south end of the Trail of Ancients,
while Baltimore Orioles were at several spots along the creeks. The only
Orchard was in the prairie along the Dyer's Mill Trail

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Swainsons addendum plus Battelle Darby
Just a clarification on the Swainson’s Warbler in New Carlisle. I think other birders were getting good looks from down in the woods by the stream today but my experience there is that sight lines are more cluttered and it’s more dumb luck if u happen to be in a spot that gives you a clear view when the Warbler perches. From the paved trail, it’s easier to track the bird, and more quietly, too, with wider views of the thick undergrowth. The light is usually better for photos as well, quite dark by the stream. Seeing the bird flash across the trail is pretty cool, too!

I stopped by Battelle Darby on the way home. Heard one Bell’s Vireo as soon as I got out of my car at the parking lot for the bike trail near Kumlein Rd.

I went on in search of a Sedge Wren on the Teal Trail having been just about the only birder in the universe who missed the one on the Magee Boardwalk (by about 5 hrs).

Although it was warm & after noon, I believe I heard one or two but not close. I definitely heard a few & then saw one Marsh Wren that was kind enough to perch up & sing near me.

At least 3 Com Gallinules.

As I was searching for the Sedge Wren, I was thinking the reeds by the lake looked like a good spot for Am Bittern when not 5 minutes later, one flushed not far from me! Great views in flight before it dropped farther back into thick reeds.

All in all, a successful day. Thx for all the helpful posts on the Swainson’s.

New yard bird the other day in Granville was an incessantly calling Great Crested Flycatcher.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Swainson’s Warbler new Carlisle yes
Bird is singing & showing well today. I got here about 8:45am and just had my best looks at 10:35am from the paved trail after another pretty good look earlier.

I recommend as long as u can hear it singing near the paved trail, stay on the paved trail rather than go down by the stream where it’s more difficult to get a wide view.

The bird flies often but will perch about eye level and sing. It flew across the paved trail right in front of us, then back just inches from me below my waist! Look thru holes in the honeysuckle for bare perchest alhough I did see it perch then fly from above eye level perches on occasion.

As Bob mcnulty noted, the bird prefers the streamside of the trail (left as you walk down the trail from the main park/dead end of Washington St.

Mosquitos and gnats annoying so bug spray recommended.

My one previous trip here was in the afternoon and while the bird was singing until past 3, it was much easier to locate & see well this morning. I only got a glimpse on my previous trip in silhouette.

Good luck!

There was a single Common Gallinule at McCracken Fen State Nature Preserve in Logan County (just south of Bellefontaine) as of 8:00am today. I initially heard its whinny call, which was repeated every 15 minutes while I was there. It was a little difficult to get a visual due to brush and other obstacles. I saw it from the north side of the pond. No scope is needed.

thunderstorm, but the morning then clear out to pleasantly cloudy & mild.
We spent the lion's share of time at Darby Bend Lakes and were rewarded
with 50+ species. Side trips to Sycamore Plains, Kuhlwein wetlands, and
the BattelleDarby Nature Center only inched up the totals. Highlights
included:

Cuckoos - Yellow-billed were calling at each site, and Susan Braunig was
lucky enough to even see one of the furtive birds south of Darby Bend
lakes. Clearly a good movement of them.

Red-headed Woodpeckers - 3+ adults were calling and flying along the
riparian strip at River Rock Trail at Darby bend lakes, acting
territorial. Hopefully they'll nest here.

Flycatchers - a calling Alder was among the horde of Willow Flycatchers at
Darby Bend Lakes. Wood Pewees, Great Cresteds, and E.Kingbirds were
scattered at all of the sites.

Vireos - lots of singing Warbling at Darby Bend Lakes highlighted by a bird
on a nest. We also found a Yellow-throated Vireo nest there (near the
footbridge on the River Rock Trail); both nests were visible because the
sycamores here have had some problems leafing out. The Bell's Vireo at
Kuhlwein was singing right around the parking area.

Thrushes - scarce, with only a few singing Wood Thrushes and 1 Swainson's
at Sycamore Plains

Mimids - Catbirds were everywhere, but the only Brown Thrashers were at
Sycamore Plains entrance road and Darby Bend Lakes

Warblers - pretty thin, with no obvious migrants. did have nice looks at
N.Parula and Prothonotary along the River Rock Trail. Yellow and
ComYellowthroats were at all sites.

Orioles - Baltimores common at Darby Bend Lakes, where there were also 2
singing Orchards

Tanagers - a Summer Tanager was singing south of the Nature Center

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Swainson's warbler continues (New Carlisle)
The Swainson's warbler was very accommodating this morning (8:30am). I could hear his song coming from 40 to 50 feet beyond the sticks marking a small "trail". So I followed the sound, and Swainson's was found singing near the main path. It was fairly easy to find him most of the time. Twice, he flew across the main path but after a brief stay, returned to his preferred side. I watched him for almost an hour, then took a walk down the trail to see what else was around. (Parula, Yellow throated warbler, chestnut sided, common yellowthroat, red headed wood peckers, great crested flycatchers). When I returned, another birder was standing on the path and watching the Swainson's warbler. So I enjoyed the views for a short while, then headed to Batelle Darby Metro Park.

Bell's vireo pair were north of Kuehlein Road, another male sing at Kuehlein Rd parking lot.
I also managed to see my first female common yellow throat.
Common Gallinule was in the wet lands
Purple martins at Darby Creek trail parking lot

Bolton Field had a upland sandpiper.

Thanks to the excellent directions in Doug and Julie's following message, I
was able to observe the Bell's Vireo as it sang early this morning (Sunday).

An added bonus was a singing Blue Grosbeak on a nearby utility pole.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] PickeringtonPonds-BlacklickWoods,5-25: SandhillCrane,flycatchers
Migration was spotty at these two metroparks southeast of Columbus. Water
levels at Pick Ponds are quite high, so waders were scarce and shorebirds
scarcer. Raptors put on a good show at both parks, and warblers seems to
have been largely replaced by flycatchers as the conspicuous landbirds.
Highlights included:

Blue-wingedTeal - a pair were visible from the Glacier Knoll viewpoint at
Pick ponds
SandhillCrane - a single bird was foraging in the tall grass at the same
spot
BaldEagles - adults were at both Ellis Pond and Greenwing Pond at Pick Ponds
Cooper's Hawks were in evidence at several spots at Pick Ponds and at
Blacklick Woods
Cuckoo - a single Yellow-billed was calling at the Wood Duck picnic area at
Pick Ponds

Red-headed Woodpecker - a single bird was roaming between the entrance and
Ashton Pond at Blacklick Woods

Flycatchers - fairly large numbers of wood pewees,Empidonax, and Great
Crested Flycatchers were at both parks, as well as Portman Park between
them. The only unusual species was a calling Alder Flycatcher at the Wood
Duck Picnic Area at Pick Ponds

Vireos - good #s of Red-eyeds were everywhere, and Blacklikc Woods had 4-5
singing White-eyed. Warblings were at several spots at Pick Ponds and
Portman Park.

Thrushes - a few lingering Swainson's were at both parks, while 6-7 Wood
Thrushes were on territories along the forest trails at Blacklick Woods

Warblers - loads of the expected residents (Yellows, ComYellowthroats) at
Pick Ponds. Blacklick Woods had only a few obvious migrants (Blackburnian,
Redstart) and 2 singing Hoodeds likely trying to set up territories along
the Maple Loop trail

Orioles,Chats - Baltimores were widespread, but an Orchard was also at Pick
Ponds. 3 Chats were along the Meadowlark Trail at Pick Ponds

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Western kingbird?
While driving west from wilderness road to killdeer plains in search of whimbrel (sadly not seen), we stopped at the Mifflin Rest Area on Rt. 30 near Mansfield. While enjoying our picnic lunch, we observed what we thought was a flycatcher catching bugs from a nearby snag. When I walked over to within 20 yards of the tree to get a better look, I was a bit shocked to find myself looking at what appeared to be a western kingbird. It had a very light gray, almost white throat and breast and a very bright yellow belly. Equally important, it showed no rufous in the tail or the wings.
I went back, very quickly, to get my birding colleagues, and camera, but, unfortunately the bird flew further away, and did not again provide good looks.
Realizing how unlikely this sighting really is, I have not yet reported it to ebird, not wanting the birding police to come and confiscate my binoculars. However, I am about to risk that, and will endure the skepticism that will follow.
Anyway, if you happen to be traveling west on Rt 30, and need a break, stop at this rest stop and look around. I am 99% certain this was a western kingbird. Just spent a week in Arizona where we saw many of these birds. Seeing one in Ohio was a much bigger treat.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Swainson's Warbler - Bell's Vireo - Clark County
We stopped at Osborn Road at the gravel pits this morning. We parked at the
gates and stepped out of the car and the Bell's Vireo was right across the
road on the east side. We stood there a couple minutes and soon spotted it
in the shrubs along the fence. Go south on Osborn Road from Lower Valley
Pike just west of Medway, Ohio.

Then we drove to New Carlisle to look for the Swainson's Warbler. It is
still in the same location singing persistently. It sits at midlevel on open
branches. The problem is that there is so much honeysuckle it can be very
hard to see. Your best bet is to step off the trail into the honeysuckle.
There is a little path which is left of the bike path. There is now a piece
of bark on the ground next to the small trail into the woods.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Belmont County
On May 24, I walked through Barnesville Village Park.
Birds of note: Swainsons Thrush, and a female Blue Grosebeak.

Last Fall I had a male Blue Grosebeak at my feeders.
Apparently the Blue Grosebeaks are moving North like the Bobolinks have.

What I can’t figure out is why I am seeing no Warblers or Vireos. Usually I have a number of species that stay in the area.. A week ago, I did have a Chat and one Warbling Vireo, but that is all.

Also, had two swans fly over head, going north, while driving on I-70 between the Morristown exit, and the Route 800 exit. This was three days ago.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Shorebirds along Rt 95 east of Funk, Wayne Co.
This morning from 8:15 to 9:30am, I birded the flooded field along the
north side of State Route 95 east of Funk in Wayne Co. There are still lots
of shorebirds present on the north side of the road. What I saw included:
Killdeer - 6
Semipalmated plover - 100+
Lesser yellowlegs - 3
Spotted sandpiper - 2
Semipalmated sandpiper - 100+
Least sandpiper - 100+
White-rumped sandpiper - 2
Dunlin - 25

There are far fewer birds in the large area on the south side of the road,
but out towards the open water I did see:
Black-bellied plover - 13
Short-billed dowitcher - 1
Greater yellowlegs - 4
Semipalmated plover - a few

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Canada Warbler at Kiwanis Park, Franklin Co

I've seen a Canada Warbler at Kiwanis Park before during late spring migration, and sure enough one was there again this morning around 9:30am. It was hard to get a good look in due to the summer-like foliage, but I got an ID picture of a male.

Other highlights included young Cardinals, Robins, and Carolina Wrens. Other Warblers included a few Chestnut-Sideds and a couple American Redstarts as well as a singing Common Yellowthroat possibly on territory. Haven't noticed the usual Prothonotary lately, hopefully he's around.

Here's my ebird report, pictures included-

Thank you to everyone who has posted the useful information about this
bird. Finally had a day where we could make the trip to see it and we
weren't disappointed. It was singing regularly from 9 am until we left at
10 am.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] SciotoAudubon-Berliner,5-19: migrants-lull or finish?
Things were slow at these two downtown parks yesterday morning. I walked
the bike paths in both, and had plenty of singing residents but only a
handful of migrants. Black locust trees were finishing their huge bloom,
and the bikepath was strewn with their petals in several places, especially
in Berliner Park. Notable birds included

Cuckoo - 1 Yellow-billed was calling in the riverside forest in Berliner
Flycatchers - good #s of Pewees, Acadians and Great Cresteds were at both
parks, and Berliner also had my FOS Willow, while Scioto had an E.Kingbird
Vireos - plenty of singing Warbling and Red-eyed were at both parks
Thrushes - minor fallout of Swainson's with 3-4 at each park, along with a
singing Gray-cheeked and singing Wood Thrush at Berliner
Warblers - multiple singing Yellows and ComYellowthroats at both parks
(where they nest), plus singing N.Parulas and Prothonotaries at Scioto.
The only obvious migrants were Redstarts at both parks, a N.Waterthrush at
Scioto, and a singing Canada at Berliner
Orioles - lots of singing Baltimores at both parks, but also had an Orchard
at Scioto

While casually leaning on the boardwalk rail at Magee last year with two

landed, sidled over to one of the women and pecked her. So this year, when
I was again leaning on the boardwalk rail at Magee and noticed a Red-winged
Blackbird land near me and start sidling my way, I got out of the way!

I was leisurely birding near the Coventry Road bridge and Lover's Lane when
a red winged blackbird landed on my head. Luckily I was wearing a hat.
This is a well trafficked area, so these birds could be a danger to the
general public, as well.

Has anyone else had similar, recent problems?

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Whimbrels on Rt 95 east of Funk, Wayne Co.
I birded Rt 95 flooded fields from 8:30-9:30 today. Lots of good shorebirds
on the north side of the road, but very little on the south side. Walking
back along the road, I heard some shorebirds calling from the south side of
the road, looked down at the mudflats 100ft away, and saw a group of large
shorebirds right in front of me. Before I could get a scope on them, they
took flight. I got my binoculars on them as they flew and they were clearly
16 whimbrels. I saw the downcurved bills well in flight. Unfortunately,
they kept flying west and out of sight. I drove west down Rt 95 to attempt
to relocate them, but never saw them again. That was my first sighting of
whimbrels in Ohio, though I have seen them elsewhere on many occasions.

Other shorebirds observed in the north side floodings:
Killdeer - 5-10
Semipalmated plover - 100+
Solitary sandpiper - 3
Semipalmated sandpiper - 5 -10
Least sandpiper - 100+
White-rumped sandpiper - 5 - 10
Dunlin - 30
Lesser yellowlegs - 1
Greater yellowlegs - 2
