Arrived at my office near New Athens to find a FOY singing yellow-throated
vireo.  Also had a northern harrier sail over my truck near the Harrison
County Airport.  Makes me wonder if the upland sandpipers have made an
appearance there as yet?

Subject: Barn Nesting Birds in Geauga County
From: Matt Valencic <mmvalencic AT ROADRUNNER.COM>
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 20:08:34 -0400
I open the barn loft door about 8" every April 1 to allow any birds that
wish to come in and check the place out for nesting.  I went up to the loft
today and after a Junco flew out the door I discovered a new nest with two
eggs between the bales of hay!



Junco's started nesting in our barn in 2009 and the first clutch was hatched
about May 7 or 8, 2009.  Because of the shelter of the barn they usually
have 3 successful broods each year and our yard is filled with Junco's year
'round.  During winter we can count 10 or more under the feeder on a snowy
day.



We also have Barn Swallows constructing a nest above one of the light
fixtures on the ground level.  This will be the 3rd year for Swallows.



We had one successful Phoebe several years ago but none since.  Maybe they
will come back this year - we can hope!

From: Ken Andrews <ken.hikes AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 13:43:01 -0400
I was sitting in my car after lunch near the Peat Bog Pond in Northfield
Center. Kind of quiet for about half an hour except for a song sparrow.
Then, I had 12 yellow-rumped warblers, 3 palm warblers and 1 yellow warbler
drop in. They started foraging in the landscape beds' wood chips, in the
grass and in the small trees around the small parking lot. One female
cardinal tried to chase the warblers away. It gave up. Too many for her.

From: Dan Donaldson <danook057 AT YAHOO.COM>
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 09:45:21 -0700
The Osprey that started nesting in a Mentor cell tower last fall appears to 
have returned with a mate. 

Today at lunch I observed the pair making multiple trips with more nesting 
material to the tower. 


Nest is located in the eastern most cell tower east of the intersection of SR 
44 an SR 283 on private property. Best and safest viewing location is from the 
Laketran park and ride lot just east of the cell towers on SR 283. This is a 
high traffic area and passive observation from the park and ride lot should not 
disturb them.

Subject: Sippo Lake Sora and More-a...
From: Jon <jcefus AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2014 07:35:45 -0400
Hello!

Yesterday at about 5 pm I was listening to a Virginia Rail do it’s ‘kiddick’ 
call from in the reeds at Sippo Lake Park in Stark County when all of a sudden 
I was treated to the ‘whinny’ call of a Sora. The birds are in an area of 
cattails between Exploration Gateway and the Marina. There is a bridge that 
spans the wetland and it has a nice large center area to stand and wait. I 
returned a bit later to see if I heard the call of any Least Bittern, but did 
not have any luck. The rail was continuing to do a mixture of ‘kiddicks’ and 
Grunt calls. Interestingly, the 3 times I heard the ‘whinny’ of the Sora, it 
seemed to be in response to the Rail calling. 


I also had a nice day looking for migrants in the tree tops on the Sanders 
Rehabilitation Center side of the park with 2 Blue-headed Vireos, 
Black-throated Green Warbler, Yellow-Rumped Warbler, Yellow Warbler and a 
lovely Nashville Warbler. 


The lake has been pretty quiet in terms of waterfowl, but Blue-winged Teal, 
Northern Shovelers, American Coot, Mallards and Canada Geese remain. There was 
a raft of 55 Ruddy Ducks yesterday and good numbers of Tree, Barn, and Northern 
Rough-winged Swallows working the surface of the water. 


I still have not seen any wading birds in the drying swamp areas along the 
Cottonwood Trail on the Sanders side of the park. 


With the addition of the Sora last night, I have identified 99 species of birds 
at Sippo since Jan 1. My goal for 2014 is 125, so I am off to a good start. 


Happy Birding!

Folks who are heading to this weekend's OOS conference at Shawnee State
Park from Cincinnati or other SW Ohio points should be aware that there is
a detour on State Route 125 between West Union and Shawnee State Park, due
to a bridge replacement. It's not a huge deal, but allow an extra fifteen
minutes to get there.

This is an excellent task for eBird!

Heading over to ebird.org, and clicking on the "Explore Data" tab at the
top of the page, you can use the range/map tool to look up Fish Crow
reports in Cleveland (or Cayuhoga, or Ohio,  etc).  That gets you to this
map...


http://ebird.org/ebird/map/fiscro?neg=true&env.minX=-81.97708492558593&env.minY=41.35034525823749&env.maxX=-81.43463497441405&env.maxY=41.63938548559886&zh=true&gp=false&ev=Z&mr=1-12&bmo=1&emo=12&yr=all&byr=1900&eyr=2014 


Which you can use to zoom in on the points and view details for each report.

Good birding,

It is presently 10:35AM Tuesday morning. Saturday's Columbiana County reported 
Red-necked Grebe is still here at the same location on the east end of the 
lake. 


The beautiful, near breeding plumage visitor, can easily be seen; a spotting 
scope is obviously helpful. Some of the other birds of interest are, numerous 
Chimney Swifts, my first of the year; a tight raft of six breeding plumage 
Common Loons; 195+ Ruddy Ducks, Cliff Swallows, and Bonaparte's Gulls, just to 
name a few.

Friends,



I spent a little over1.5 hours at the Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve
yesterday.



This was my first time to visit this location.  If anyone is considering
this birding spot, it's really impressive and I highly recommend it.  Easy
to access, easy to park, easy to walk the trail, and a very unusual habitat.
I usually hesitate to head to the "city" to do my birding, but this location
was a really nice surprise!



List observed:



Eastern Towhee - 4

BG Gnatcatcher - 12

Common Loon - 2 - East side of the island

Red Necked Grebe - 1 - Far southwest side of the island, in the marina area,
very close views

Brown Thrasher - 2

White Throated Sparrow - 1

Savannah Sparrow - 2

Bufflehead - 2 - both females, off north side of island

Northern Flicker - 12 - They were everywhere.  I don't recall ever seeing so
many flickers.

Song Sparrows - 20



See you on the trails!



Spencer A. Ryan

Julie Karlson and I drove down to Lawrence County to look for birds this
morning. We drove some back roads in Symmes County and found a few warblers
and vireos. We were in the northeast corner of the township on T189 just
north of Waterloo - Mt Vernon according to the latest DeLorme Atlas. It flew
right over us and continued to the east. We had a great look at the black
and white wings from underneath and the long forked tail.

Dan G and I did a mini big day (7 hours) in Erie County (only Erie County) and 
scored 90 species. He just picked up 91-American Bittern, and 92, 
Whip-poor-will at Sheldon Marsh SNP. Numbers of birds not exceptional but 
diversity was good, with 11 species of shorebirds, 13 waterfowl, 10 raptors, 3 
warbler species including a migrant Prothonotary at Sheldon, and a good mix of 
passerines overall. Bird your local patches! We're at the tipping point for a 
large wave of new arrivals--- good luck and good night

There was a Lark Sparrow in the overgrown parking area across the street from 
the Miamisburg Mound. This old parking lot is next to the Mound Science & 
Energy Museum at 1075 Mound Rd. 


The distinct face pattern and dark spot on the otherwise unmarked breast were 
viewed through at scope at about 120 yards as it perched in a tree. This 
location is about 1/4 mile from where two birds were seen last summer.

The first wave of Prothonotary Warblers has arrived at Hoover Reservoir, 
Delaware County. While assisting a friend locate Red-headed Woodpecker nest 
sites to film I observed my first PROWs of the year. The Red-headed Woodpeckers 
were also cooperative for us. 


Warblers I have observed to date at the Hoover Nature Preserve include Northern 
Parula, Louisiana Waterthrush, Yellow, Yellow-Rumped, Yellow-throated, Pine, 
Palm and Prothonotary Warblers. The only vireo so far is Warbling Vireo. There 
are also two pairs of nesting Osprey and one pair of nesting Bald Eagles. The 
coming week is predicted to have southern winds and this should bring in a wave 
of new warblers, vireos and more. 


Wishing everyone a safe and productive spring of birding adventures.

I hiked from Sulphur Springs picnic area this morning. I saw a pileated
woodpecker go all the way into a cavity and stick its head out a few times.
I heard a brown creeper singing. I saw a broad-winged hawk soaring overhead.
And, there was a black-throated green warbler in the picnic area when I got
back to my car. 

I also took a short walk near Squaw Rock and saw a red-tailed hawk in the
woods with a squirrel. It flew up to another hawk higher up in the trees.
They both flew off over the Chagrin River towards Quarry Rock. I think there
is a nest just east of that area. It was nice to see the big hawks up-close
like that.

Just got back from my lunchtime walk, and was delighted to hear the familiar
twittering of Chimney Swifts (this was near Uptown Athens).  I only saw 4 of
them, so no big influx yet.  While scanning the sky for swifts, I noticed 2
Black Vultures and 1 Red-tailed Hawk effortlessly enjoying a thermal
waaaaaay up in the sky.

What a beautiful day.

Hope you all can get out and enjoy it!

Subject: [Ohio-birds] More Athens County arrivals

Yesterday morning, bright and early, I heard my first singing Wood Thrush of 
the season on our property in western Athens County. I heard quite a few more 
singing along our road during an evening walk. Also heard my first singing 
Common Yellowthroat of the season during yesterday evening's walk. 


An auditory first for me, as of this weekend, was clucking Wild Turkeys. 
They sound like they are just across the road from our property. I've heard it 
both in the morning and during the afternoon. Should I take this to mean there 
is a roost nearby? I don't know of any turkey hunting that takes place in my 
neighborhood, so I don't think I'm hearing a man-made turkey call. 


I hope to venture out this afternoon to a nearby farm field that Grasshopper 
Sparrows frequent to see if they have returned yet. 


Good birding,

Subject: Possible Brewer's Blackbird, Lake County 4/20
From: Cole DiFabio <colefor3 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sun, 20 Apr 2014 20:08:36 -0400
I was at Lake Erie Bluffs in Lake County this evening (4/20) and briefly viewed 
a blackbird that struck 

me as a Brewer's. This was in the west field on the Lane Road entrance to the 
park, near the dirt trail 

entrance. When I first spotted it, I immediately thought it was a grackle. Its 
back first appeared black, 

but when the sun was shining on him, it appeared very glossy, with greenish 
blue sticking out. The 

head also appeared purplish. I then noticed a very yellow eye. This would mean 
it would be an adult 

male. Then, the bird flew higher up into the tree, in which I noticed a long 
tail when it flew. The bird 

also called at least twice, which upon further listening to sounds of Brewer's 
and Rusty back at home, 

I believe it was the sound of Brewer's, being a short, buzzy t-zee. Its song 
was short and brief. I was 

not able to obtain a picture.
I am familiar with Brewer's Blackbirds, as I have seen many in California. It 
just struck me as a 

Brewer's when I first spotted him. 

Any feedback, comments, etc would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

We had a great Easter at Sandy Ridge in North Ridgeville!  We got great 
looks and pictures of the Little Blue Heron, a first for us.  Also a first 
for us, a Caspian Tern and a brief but good look at a Common Moorhen, very 
close to the location to where the Lil Blue was foraging (southern part of 
marsh).  A Sora was heard calling near the same area.  A lesser yellowlegs 
put on a show for us as well.  A woodcock was dancing just off the path.  
At least five yellow rumps.  A great day for birding!

Nice Metroparks/Audubon walk this morning at Cleveland Lakefront Nature 
Preserve. Highlights were a Red-necked Grebe in Gordon Park Marina, a large 
number of American Tree Sparrows still lingering, a Vesper Sparrow (only seen 
by one of the group, although it was seen by others not on the walk), and a 
wide variety of other sparrows. Most exciting was probably an apparent fly over 
Yellow-headed Blackbird that several people saw well enough to feel confident 
in the ID. That bird is not on the linked ebird checklist, since I did not see 
it. One of the other participants will add it to the list with his 
observations.

I visited Springfield Bog at 4 pm today in Springfield Township Summit County.

Today, we did an Easter visit to our old stomping grounds, the Conneaut Harbor 
Area in Ashtabula County, from about 1:30PM to the present 3:10PM. At the end 
of the marina road we were excitedly greeted by the previously reported 
Red-throated Loon. The temperature is a brisk 52 degrees with the usual 
Conneaut windy conditions. Some of the other highlights are 32 Caspian Terns 
out on "The Sandspit", Ruddy Ducks, Common Loon, Lesser Scaup, Bonaparte's 
Gulls, and Red-breasted Mergansers.

This morning, Nimisila had green herons, house wren, and five warblers. Osprey, 
red-shouldered hawk, mourning dove, and red- winged blackbird were all carrying 
nest material. 


On the home front, we live on a city street, across from the Wheeling & Lake 
Erie. Behind that is the Ohio Edison campus. We are maybe two miles from farm 
land. 


Last May, I heard a bluebird along the wires. A few weeks ago I put up two nest 
boxes, one at each end of a low creek area that doesn't appear to get mowed. 
Today, a male was sitting on one of the boxes!

Hello:

 Happy Easter!
Speaking of Fish Crows, can anyone refresh my memory of where they have
been seen in Cleveland's east suburbs?

I remember hearing talk of a possible nest, and various sightings, and live
in the Heights area now, so I'd love to keep a lookout.
I've been rolling my window down whenever I see crows to listen for the
nasal call of Fish Crows, but would love to zero in a bit better from that
"shotgun" approach!

Thanks in advance-

Lyn Miller Cleveland Hts.

Saturday April 19th at Tinker's Creek State Park a Blue-headed Vireo was seen 
and heard singing his heart out. Also several Pine warblers and a Ruby-crowned 
Kinglet joined in the chorus. And a Winter Wren was hanging about a blown down 
White Pine. We watched a River Otter cruising on the surface of one of the 
ponds.

I birded the morning hours today around where Strouds Run enters Dow Lake. I 
was early enough to hear a Barred Owl calling into the songbird morning 
concert, which was dominated by Northern Cardinals. Almost four hours yielded 
34 species, including a FOS Green Heron, Eastern Phoebe, White-Eyed Vireo, 
Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and five warbler species: 2 
Ovenbird (FOS, heard only), 2 Louisiana Waterthrush (FOS, heard only), 1 
American Redstart, 1 Northern Parula, and 1 Yellow-throated Warbler (heard 
only). The full list is at:

Two addendum to the list that I posted today:

First, thanks To Doug Overacker, I realize that I put the wrong thing on my
list of birds...IT was 4 Yellow-throated warblers, not 4 Common common
Yellowthroats...I think my thumb hit the wrong tic mark.

Second, after reviewing the film, the two Cooper's hawks were Broad-winged
Hawks. Two lifers today. :-D

So yay!

Happy Birding and God Bless

A walk at sunset at Pick Ponds was fruitful. The best was a single Sandhill 
Crane coming into roost for the night on the East side of Wood Duck Pond (on 
the far S side). It called a couple times after it landed out of sight. 
Wonderful. I suppose there could have been others but I only saw/heard the one. 


I was out looking/listening for Woodcocks & finally heard a couple, neither v 
close. A pheasant called as well. I added another warbler for the day when a 
Com Yellowthroat sang. 


Some Blue-winged & Green-winged Teal flew over. 

I thought I heard Com Nighthawks but could not spot them but I can't think of 
anything else w/that "beep" unless it was a frog of some sort. So just a maybe. 


There were also some good-sized bats around. I'm sure someone on the list knows 
which species--if so, reply offlist--thx. 


Gorgeous evening.

Lovely day but rather slow birding-wise. 

Calling Barred Owl was nice this AM at the CCrk first parking lot. My FOS 
White-eyed Vireos singing. Ruby-crowned Kinglet, E Phoebe, Brwn Thrasher. One 
Wht-thr Sparrow, still some juncos. More Rough-winged Swallows than last 
weekend. 


No new warblers from last weekend: B&W, N Parula, Blk-thr Green, 
Yellow-throated. A couple other birders said they heard Hooded & Ovenbird. 


Raptors: Red-shouldered, Sharpie. 

Cont on to Vinton. Lots of singing Prairie Warblers (FOS & OH bird), couple La 
Waterthrushes. O/w, the same warblers as at Clr Crk. Another Red-shouldered 
Hawk. 


Vinton F Butterflies: Falcated Orangetip, E Tiger Swallowtail, Spicebush ST, 
Spring Azure, Duskywing (likely Sleepy)--dozens everywhere at puddles. 


Osprey off Rt 33 S of Lancaster.

The adult Little Blue Heron at Sandy Ridge Metro Park in Lorain Cty. was
easily seen this morning.  It mostly hung out in the smaller marsh just
south of the
main footpath - where the trail bends to the west a little past the mounded
observation point.

From: Andrew Sewell <semillama AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sat, 19 Apr 2014 14:39:02 -0400
Paul Gardner, Jeff Grabmeier and I birded several locations in Pickaway
County this morning. We made stops at the East Street wetlands/grasslands
at New Holland, Deer Creek beach, Egypt Pike/Dick Road wetlands, Calamus
Swamp, the Charlie's Pond area, and the Slate Run wetlands. Highlights
follow:

East Street:
We arrived early hoping for rails but had none; however, two early, singing
Henslow's Sparrows were a great consolation prize, with decent looks at
one. Loads of American Coots and Blue-winged Teal dominated the waterfowl
here, with only a handful of other species. We also had Savannah, Field,
Chipping, and White-crowned Sparrow here.

Deer Creek Beach:
Despite a lack of dog-walkers, the beach was only occupied by two
Ring-billed Gulls and a Killdeer. Waterfowl out on the lake was limited to
Canada Geese and a Double-crested Cormorant.

Egypt Pike/Dick Road wetlands:
A controlled burn at the large overlook blind was drawing in a horde of
swallows, both Tree and Northern Rough-winged. Mixed in with them was a
single Chimney Swift, one of the birds I look forward most to its return in
spring. Waterfowl numbers were low, with handfuls of shovelers, a few Ruddy
Ducks, and some Ring-necked Ducks, Lesser Scaup, and Bufflehead thrown in.
Lots of coots, which seemed to be the theme of the day. A Palm Warbler was
a nice surprise foraging in the bushes nearby, and we heard a House Wren
singing as well. Jeff spied a Green Heron as we were leaving.

Calumus Swamp:
We stayed briefly, but long enough to observe a pair of Rusty Blackbirds.

Charlie's Pond area:
We mainly birded a small wetland on River Road northwest of Charlie's Pond,
which in the past has produced some really cool wetland birds, despite its
rather limited size. Today it had a Wilson's Snipe and a Sora.

Slate Run Wetlands:
The highlight here was being greeted by a singing Yellow-throated Warbler
as soon as we stepped out of the car. A Sora was also present in the
wetlands, but attempts to locate Sandhill Cranes failed. Again, coots were
the most common water bird. A pair of Northern Harriers circled together
above the wetlands - perhaps a pair looking to nest?

Notably absent from our day list were shorebirds - very little good habitat
was present, but even some of the shallower wet areas, like at the River
Road wetland and East Street, only produced a single shorebird each (snipe
at the former, Lesser Yellowlegs at the latter). If you're looking for
shorebirds, look north, not south.

Good birding,
Andy Sewell
Columbus

I stopped by this south Columbus park and walked around both the Turtle Pond 
area and the Confluence Trail. Lots of temperate migrants around, with 
especially good numbers of gnatcatchers & ruby-cr.kinglets. Notables included: 


Sapsucker - 1 north of Confluence parking lot
Great Crested Flycatcher - 1 calling north of the Confluence parking area
White-eyed Vireos - 2 calling at 2 different locations
House Wrens - at least 3 different individuals were singing in different 
locations 

Blue-Gray Gnatcatchers - everywhere, with 30+ in 2 hours
Ruby-cr.Kinglets - also quite common, with 10+
Wood Thrush - 1 was singing in desne shrubs near the NE corner of the first 
borrow pits along the multi-use path 

Hermit Thrushes - at least 2 were along the Confluence Trail
Brown Thrashers - 2 were singing at different locations around the Turtle Pond 
area 

Parula Warblers - 5 singing in different locations, 3 in the floodplain forest 
west of Turtle Pond 

Yellow-throated Warblers - 5 singing in different areas of the park
Yellow-rumped Warblers - 10+ in 2 small flocks
Pine Warbler - at least 1 singing along the multi-use trail
E.Towhees - good #s, with 12+ in 2 hours
Chipping Sparrows - abundant, with singing birds in many open areas of the park
Juncos - 2 still hanging around the Turtle Pond area

Afterwards I drove down to check isolated wooded areas around Rickenbacker 
Airport, hoping for some fallout but finding little different from 3-Creeks. 
The open fields and puddles here had not attracted any shorebirds, but there 
were 2-3 singing E.Meadowlarks along the SW stretch of Rickenbacker Blvd.

My wife Denise and I, along with state park naturalist Richelle Moore, gave a 
waterfowl program at Guilford Lake State Park in Columbiana County this 
morning, Saturday, from 9AM to 11AM. We had the presentation on the south shore 
of the lake, at The Red Maple Landing parking area. Waterfowl was in low 
numbers, but good birds were had. The highlight was a Red-necked Grebe in near 
breeding plumage, showing beautiful red on the neck. The celebrity visitor was 
constantly diving and feeding, gorging itself with fish. Of the twenty-eight 
species seen, some of the other highlights were; Cliff Swallow, Bonaparte's 
Gull, Ruddy Duck, Bald Eagle, Lesser Scaup, Red-breasted Merganser, and gads of 
American Coots. The Red-necked Grebe can best be viewed at the east end of the 
lake by the dam spillway.

2 Upland Sandpipers viewed from the far end of a parking lot. They were on a 
left from a ditch fairly close to the fence. 

Also, it is a good shorebird spot at the corner of Hayden Run and Creek rd. 
(where Hayden Run rd. actually starts). Both Yellowlegs, Pectoral and Spotted 
Sandpipers. Here is my list for a map.

Chris Collins, Jacob Roalef and Eric Elvert found and photographed at least two 
Smith's Longspurs in a corn stubble field on Hill Road west of Rockford, Ohio, 
this morning. Loosely associating with 1700 Lapland Longspurs and many Horned 
Larks. They secured land owner permission to enter field. This is the same area 
that Dan G and I had 88 Smith's in April 2013. Permission must be acquired to 
enter fields! They spent time only on one field--there are untold many other 
possible fields in the border counties that are suitable for this species. Corn 
stubble no more then 2 feet high, with weeds and foxtail grass within rows, 
fields must be large

We took a quick trip down to the Hocking Hills looking for wildlfowers, 
butterflies, & birds. Eschewing the mobs at OldMan'sCave, we opted for the mob 
at Conkle's Hollow, then went over to nearby Spruce Hollow (Webster Rd). The 
day was hazy & mild, and the few birds we found were usually singing. Notable 
birds included: 


Turkey Vultures - small #s were everywhere, but whitewash at several cliffs at 
Conkle's indicated nesting there 

Pileated Woodpeckers - a pair were calling in Spruce Hollow
Brown Creeper - 1 was singing in Conkle's Hollow. I don't know if they nest 
here. 

Blue-headed Vireos - 2 were singing along the drier rim forest of Conkle's 
Hollow 

Kinglets - 2 Ruby-crowns were at each Hollow; the only Golden-cr. was one at 
Conkles 

Blue-Gray Gnatcatchers - not as common as in Columbus, with only a few at each 
hollow 

Hermit Thrushes - 2 were at Conkle's Hollow, but neither were singing (alas)
Parula Warbler - at least 3 were singing along Spruce Hollow
Black-throated Green Warblers - 5 were singing on territories in the hemlocks 
along Conkle's Hollow 

Yellow-rumped Warblers - a few were at each hollow
Yellow-throated Warbler - 1 was singing along Spruce Hollow
Black&White Warbler - 1 was singing in the slope forest at Conkle's Hollow
La.Waterthrush - a pair were calling at Conkle's, while a single was seen along 
Spruce Hollow

I was birding Blacklick Woods about the same time as the McNulties, and can add 
some numbers and species to their totals. I spent about an hour & a half hiking 
the forest trails there, with only a brief stop at the Nature Center (which 
wasn't open yet). The morning totals included 


Red-headed Woodpecker - 1 adult along the Maple Loop, north of the area where 
they wintered 

Sapsucker - 1 drumming along the Maple Loop
Other woodpeckers - LOTS of Downies & Red-bellies (16-20 of each)
Brown Creeper - 1 was calling along the Beech Loop, a rather late date for them 
here. 

Winter Wren - 2 were singing at different locations in the forest
House Wren - 1 was singing near the Beech-Maple Lodge
Blue-Gray Gnatcatchers - singles were everywhere, with 14 total
Ruby-cr.Kinglets - 6, mostly along the Maple Loop
Hermit Thrushes - 9, with most of them working around the edges of the vernal 
pool along the Buttonbush & Maple Loops 

Brown Thrasher - 2 singing at different areas near the entrance
Yellow-throated Warblers - 2, one near the Nature Center and the other near the 
Ash Grove Picnic area 

Yellow-rumped Warblers - 8 scattered along the forest trails, with many singing
Ovenbird - 1 singing along the Maple Loop
N.Waterthrush - 1 along the vernal pool edge along the Maple Loop
Hooded Warbler - 1 moving between the vernal pool and Ashton Pond
E,Towhees - high numbers, with 12 scattered around the wood edges
Field Sparrows - 4 working the fields south of the Nature Center
White-throated Sparrows - small flocks in many places, totaling over 40
Junco - 4 still around, with pairs in two different locations
Blackbirds - Rusties not re-found, but lots of Redwings & grackles around.

We just watched 8 Fish Crows for at least an hour. We only heard a few
vocalizations, a single nasal call, not the double nasal call. We first
spotted them as we were walking in Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve.
They were on picnic tables just outside the fence at the Gordon Boat Ramp.
We exited the preserve and drove to the boat ramp. We watched two of them
fly from one very tall light post to another. We saw two feeding each
other. One of the birds has a few white feathers in the rump area. I texted

Yesterday, in Matt Valencic's report he wrote, "The Boardwalk is receiving  
a lot of repairs to railings and the decking.  Kudo's to whomever is doing  
the work."

The work has been totally funded by the Friends of Magee  Marsh.  FOMM 
provided the first $25,000 for the work that has been completed. They are now 

working to raise $300,000 to complete the  remainder of the boardwalk.  

I am sure FOMM appreciates our kudo's,  but what they really need is our 
help to reach this goal!  Donations are  tax deductible and can be made via 
PayPal on the Friends' website  www.friendsofmageemarsh.org or on Facebook at  
www.facebook.com/friendsofmageemarsh.   In addition, donation  envelopes 
are available at Magee's Sportsmen’s Migratory Bird Center and donation boxes 

are located at both entrances to the boardwalk.  

This is your opportunity to give back to Magee Marsh.  Please do  what you 
can to help FOMM reach their goal so that this world class birding site  
remains accessible for years to come.
