Tuesday, July 29 - 10-11 a.m.

A few shorebirds are beginning to gather in the small pond at the north end
 of the park.

Common goldeneye - male imm (on main lake)
Pectoral sp
Spotted sp
Solitary sp
Lesser yellowlegs
Killdeer
Great egrets - 6
Great blue herons
Green-backed heron

Other sightings:

Belted kingfisher
Red-shouldered hawk - imm
Tree and barn swallows
Chimney swifts
Indigo buntings--everywhere!
House wrens--everywhere!
Field sparrows

North Park:

Willow flycatchers
Song sparrows
Indigo buntings
Red-winged blackbirds
Cedar waxwings--nesting along the road to the shelter.  As you are  leaving
the shelter count to approx. the 4th or 5th post of the guardrail on  your
left and the nest is in the tree just before you get to the black  locust
trees with all the thorns.

Happy birding,

I think it would be good to suggest a plan to the Geauga County Park system.
Perhaps someone knowledgeable about these things can determine the closest
distance without putting the birds on alert and then develop a plan for a
path and perhaps also a viewing platform to see the birds and not be too
close as to bother them.  The path would likely need to come off one of the
main paths and be accessible from the parking lot.  I am no expert but to me
a platform  up on the dam near the middle should give good viewing.

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Frohring Meadows, Geauga Co - Viewing Options

A short time ago I contacted the Geauga County Parks about some nature
question. After I told them how much I appreciated having that park,
including the new wetlands, I also suggested a small platform along the
trail near the new wetlands. They said they were considering additions to
that area. I told them that I often thought of taking a small step ladder or
stepstool so I could see better from the path. Another option I was found
was to go to the path near the power line corridor where you can look
downhill at the new wetlands from a higher vantage point. I could see better
with my binoculars from that area. I'll bet a scope would give you a very
good view from that area.

Jon Cefus and Ben Morrison you are going to be really mad when you see this! 
When I drove back to the sandbar there was a whimbrel sitting on the east side 
of the sand... As soon as I realized what it was it flew off and did not 
return. Sorry you guys missed it! And I'm sorry I didn't get a better look...

Amazing birds along there last night and this morning.

On Butternut Ridge, between West Ridge Rd. and Oberlin Rd. (along the back
side of the landfill), I saw 7 American Kestrel last night on my drive home
(around 7:15 to 7:30 PM).  They were on the wires, and electric poles.
 There may have been a few more... it looked like about 4 in a tree but I
couldn't see them well enough while driving by.

This morning, on that same stretch, I saw one Kestrel, two Bald Eagles on
the top of the really tall tree at the top of the hill right across from
the landfill, and a huge flock of gulls flying over/around the landfill.  I
haven't seen that many gulls out there since over the winter when they were
around that area in huge numbers.

Happy Birding!
Kristen

I saw four white pelicans on a mud island in Middle Harbor at East Harbor 
State Park at about 9:15 this morning.  I WATCHED THEM FOR a while and then 
tried to sort out some peeps.  When I looked again they were gone.  About an 
hour later I saw three fly over as I walked the wetland trail.

We need to ask for a pathway to that area. That would better for the bird 
watchers as well as the other criters in the fields. A single path along the 
tree line to the south would suffice. I could also envision a platform there 
for greater visibility across the entire wetland area. The platform could be 
located just in front of the treeline and should not interfere with the life in 
the wetlands.

Thanks to Inga for the post.  I went there yesterday and walked through the
brush to the new wetland area.  I found the semipalmated plover and the
Solitary Sandpiper.  (lots of killdeer, great blue heron and wood ducks also
there)

A tick found me.  I found him crawling on my arm later that day, so if you
do go walking through the brush to the wetland, be sure to check carefully
when you get home.

Spent a pleasant morning at Frohring Meadows, trying to locate the
semipalmated plover found by Linda Gilbert yesterday. Never did see it, but
there were two least sandpipers and four solitary sandpipers in the new
wetland area, along with lots and lots of killdeer. Also using the wetland
were two green and two great blue herons.

Still a few bobolinks and a meadowlarks in the fields, and just clouds of
barn swallows.

The old wetland is pretty much vegetated on both sides of the little dam.

This is a note from your friendly list owner. Miami University has notified
the listowners that they will be upgrading the listserv software on August
5. Hopefully, that will clear up many of the issues that we have been
having lately.

Meanwhile, please remember that discussing the list is not an appropriate
topic for the list. So, please do not respond (except privately) to this
post.

This is also a good time to remind you that the email address of the
listserv is now ohio-birds AT listserv.miamioh.edu. The old address,  AT 
listserv.muohio.edu, will still work, but I don't know how much longer.

I have had this issue with gmail, columbus road runner and century link. It's 
been that way for awhile for me. I thought it was the email client but its not. 
It is variable too - some days are better than others. Should we expect it to 
be instant? I think it was in the old days.. (I've only been reading the list

I stopped at Lorain Harbor this afternoon.  At the impoundment there were
quite a few shorebirds, however with it being overgrown in spots they aren't
real easy to spot.  There was a single American avocet standing in the water
and a Wilson's phalarope nearby.  I saw a few peeps also.  An immature eagle
flew by and  about 50-60 shorebirds got up.  Most were peeps, but there were
also two stilt sandpipers and couple lesser yellowlegs.  I didn't stay long
due to the approaching thunderstorm.

Has anybody else experienced a delay with bird postings on the listserv
today, or is it just my email? I sent out a post asking if the whistling
ducks were still present around 1pm. However, I did not see it come through
until this evening. I also saw a post from Liz McQuaid from Conneaut that
was posted at 11am, but it also didn't come thru until this evening. Is
anyone else experiencing this delay?

I was at Villa Angela and Wildwood Parks (part of Euclid Creek Reservation now) 
on the east side of Cleveland today from 2pm to 4:15pm.  I spent most of my 
time in Wildwood.  Birds of interest that I saw: 


Great Egrets 2 in the Wildwood wetland (it seems they are seen near Dike 14 or 
Whiskey Island in the summer but I hadn't seen them here since earlier in May. 

Green Heron 1
Black-crowned Night-Heron 1 juvenile in willow above creek
Solitary Sandpiper 1 (twice a year during migration I always seem to see one 
along Euclid Creek usually seen down from Lakeshore parking lot but slightly 
further north as I did today)

As of a short time ago, 3:05PM, today Saturday, the three Black-bellied 
Whistling-Ducks found by Don Keffer and Larry Richardson yesterday, at The 
Grand River Wildlife Area in Trumbull County, were still present at the second 
pond, northeast of the tee in the trail. The location is south of SR87 off of 
SR45, at the end of Norton Lane, which only goes to the west. We were fortunate 
to share the experience with The Columbus Avid Birders. Some of the other birds 
seen from the parking lot were Prothonotary Warbler, American Redstart, 
Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Scarlet Tanager, Green Heron, and Red-headed Woodpecker.

Re, "We cannot understand today's birds--their populations,
Greetings,

Re, "We cannot understand today's birds--their populations, foods, behaviors, 
timings of migration and nesting, etc.--without finding out 

everything we can about them yesterday."

I don't know how "out of norm" my thinking is, but other than nostalgia, I 
don't know why historical information rates high on a "need to know" scale.  If 
the planet froze in time 100 years ago, there was no human population growth, 
and all natural lands that existed 100 years ago were here today, well then 
hey, that's a whole different story and yes, that would be crucial information. 


But, ... that's not the way it is.  It is an entirely different state of Ohio 
and an entirely different planet.  We are in a mass extinction crisis.  The 
destruction of habitats over the last 100 years is so severe, it is hard to 
describe without understating the severity of it. 


My opinion is comparisons should be shorter ranged, maybe 10-15 years at most.  
I was in Ohio for a week last week for a family reunion and taking in some 
birding, and granted, Ohio has not seen the destruction of habitats like 
Florida or Asia or South America has, but still, so many Ohio birds migrate 
through or winter in a virtual nuclear waste zone such as Florida and many 
areas of Central America and South America that Ohio birds are being affected. 


Ornithologists might feel that comparing today to decades ago (bird behavior, 
food habits, nesting, etc.) is important, but at the "warp factor 9" speed of 
destruction going on worldwide, that is just "busy work" producing little 
valuable information for many species, IMO, since the ecosystems and habitats 
are degrading so fast.  


You are comparing "apples to poisoned apples" if you try to understand today's 
birds based on info from 100 years ago.

was also in 1903 that he announced he had completed a work, "Life
Histories of the Birds of Ohio: A State Textbook," of some 700 pages,
with 100 colored plates. It was offered by Fred Herr, a prominent
Columbus publisher.

the OSU Museum, or the state libraries. There are some rather unreliable
published mentions and offhand reviews of this seemingly significant
work, but I have the feeling it was never finally published. Surely
there was a text, a draft with illustrations, but it seems lost. I'm
thinking there are clued-in folks who read this list who may have

be a trove of Davie's manuscripts. Please get in touch if you do.

Grand River WA - Norton Ponds. At the end of Norton Road. Norton Rd is a few 
miles south of Rt 87 on Ohio Rt 45 in Trumbull County. 


I very slowly worked my way around the first pond (30 minutes!) to the "T" in 
the trail. They were close to the near shore in the pond to the right, very 
close to me. While I was standing there taking pictures they took off and flew 
a big circle, landing waaaaay back to the north near the tree line. If you 
stand at the "T" in the trail, look straight ahead (north) to the tree line. 
That's where they appeared to land. 


At the "T" look in the nearly dry pond to the left for a Spotted Sandpiper. 
This is a very 'birdy' spot as a check of eBird will show you. 


A scope and bug repellent are a good idea (especially near the woods)!

In our pursuit of 120 birds in July, as suggested on this list earlier, Becky 
and I made two stops along the lakeshore Friday afternoon. 


At the middle harbor of East Harbor SP we saw no phalaropes, avocets, pelicans, 
or Black Terns and only heard rumors of a Baird's Sandpiper, but we did find a 
small group of Semipalmated Plovers.  


On the beach at Camp Perry west of Port Clinton we found one Ruddy Turnstone, 
two Red Knots, and a small group of Sanderlings.  Be aware that the NRA 
National Matches run through August 15.  I think all the shooting takes place 
in the morning, but I really don't know. 


Our total for July is now 146 with 3 unshared birds.  So far our search has 
been limited to our "home range" of Wood, Sandusky, Erie, Ottawa, and Lucas 
Counties.  There are still about a dozen resident birds that we think we can 
find, although we haven't yet, and more migrants are passing through every 
day.  So now we are trying for 150, and have not yet decided if that means 
combined or each.

I went back to Frohring Meadows this morning, again to look for the 
semipalmated 

plover. Finally, success....two birds. Hard to see since they tend to favour 
the 

right hand side of the wetland, well concealed from the path.  

Also there were two semipalmated sandpipers (took a committee to make
 that call). Every season I start from scratch on shorebirds, mixing up leasts 
and 

semipalms, lesser and greater yellowlegs.

resting in the large pond directly north of the first pond to your right as
you walk in to the area.

Subject: Origin Of Yesterday's Conneaut Piping Plover
From: robert lane <ohiomagpie AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 24 Jul 2014 21:55:13 -0400
Thanks once again to Alice Van Zoeren, of The Great Lakes Piping Plover Banding 
Program (plover AT umn.edu), for providing the origin of the plover found by Chris 
Swan yesterday, Wednesday July 23, at The Conneaut Sandspit in Ashtabula County 
on the shore of Lake Erie. Alice has identified the origins of three Piping 
Plovers found at Conneaut in recent years, for me. The celebrity visitor was 
hatched in 2013 at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in northwestern 
Michigan, on the northeast shore of Lake Michigan. The 2013-2014 wintering 
location is unknown. He returned this summer to breed at Christmas Cove near 
Northport, Michigan, twenty-eight miles northeast of where he was hatched. 
Alice informed me her team has been looking for him since his chicks 
disappeared before fledging, and they were trying to find out whether he had 
moved them to a new location. Apparently not. Sad that his chicks didn't make 
it, but good to have the mystery solved. Hopefully he returns to the Michigan 
shore in 2015 for another spring nesting season. It would be nice to know where 
his winter destination is. Our little second year plover, headed out alone, 
traveling 330 miles southeast across Michigan and Ontario to the south shore of 
Lake Erie. Thanks to our wandering cutie for giving us the opportunity to spend 
a wonderful day appreciating him. With a restful stopover in Conneaut, he can 
now continue his journey.

Larry Gara and I had a quick look at Cowan Lake and Caesar Creek beach this
morning (Thurs, 24 Jul).  The shorebird migration is on.  The east end of
Cowan held some shorebirds, mainly Killdeer and several Least Sandpipers
visible from the east end boat ramp.  A scope is necessary.  Might be a
little better from the Lotus Cove overlook.

There were also two Great Egrets and two Great Blue Herons.

The spillway is in very good condition.  We had six Spotted Sandpipers,
 three Leasts, a Semipalmated Sandpiper and about 40 Killdeer, as well as a
cloud of Northern Rough-winged Swallows.

We dropped in at the Caesar Creek beach for a quick look (15 minutes).
 Among the hundred or so Ring-billed Gulls was a Laughing Gull.  Big bill,
big eye crescents, as large as the ring-bills, hefty build.  See eBird
report for more detail.

Larry went back out to the beach after lunch, but the gulls were gone.
 Humans were using that end of the beach.

Cheers,

Bob

Spent a pleasant morning at Frohring Meadows, trying to locate the semipalmated
plover found by Linda Gilbert yesterday. Never did see it, but there were two 
least 

sandpipers and four solitary sandpipers in the new wetland area, along with
lots and lots of killdeer. Also using the wetland were two green and two great 
blue 

herons.  

Still a few bobolinks and a meadowlarks in the fields, and just clouds of barn 
swallows. 


The old wetland is pretty much vegetated on both sides of the little dam.

Hello,

As you implied, the Harrison books are wrong.  Black Rails have nested, e.g., 
in land-locked states such as Arizona and North Dakota.  They are "irregular 
nesters" inland. 


They likely were much more common inland when the USA had 200+ million acres of 
wetlands.  Some states have destroyed close to 90% of their wetlands.

Subject: Today's Conneaut Piping Plover
From: robert lane <ohiomagpie AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:20:34 -0400
Congratulations to Conneaut birder Chris Swan for his exciting Life Piping 
Plover find this morning, Wednesday, at about 9AM, at "The Conneaut Sandspit" 
in Ashtabula County. Birding glory at it's best. Kudos also for getting the 
word out immediately. The male Piping Plover was in perfect breeding plumage, 
including a complete dark narrow breast band. It was carrying a lot of 
hardware, five leg bands. On the right leg were top to bottom; orange flag, 
black band, and blue band. On the left leg were a metal band at the top, and a 
blue band on the bottom. Upon my wife Denise and my arrival at 9:40AM, Chris 
had the plover staked out for us on the west end of the sandspit. By 10:15AM, 
us three were the only birders present. Another memorable Conneaut craziness 
was about to take place. The entire Conneaut High School Football team showed 
up on the sandspit in about twenty cars, doing synchronized donuts in the sand 
before parking, and then having a practice, which included the coaches. Adding 
to this, one of the Port Authority tractors equipped with a drag rake, was 
determined to wear out the sandspit, literally hitting every surface out of the 
water, over and over again. The Piping Plover apparently had enough of the 
disturbance, relocating to the public beach to the west at about 10:30AM, and 
still being at this location when we departed at 4:15PM. By noon the parasail 
boarders had arrived at the sandspit, making it an area of no return. A total 
of nine plover pursuers had great views of the visiting celebrity. For six of 
the nine this was a life bird. Some of the other highlights today were 9 
Sanderlings and one breeding plumaged Ruddy Turnstone. The Bald Eagle numbers 
seem to be diminishing, with only eight being seen. The Bank Swallows are 
nearly all gone. Only in Conneaut can you have entertainment like this. Bird 
surprises and frustrating people watching. All part of the adventure here.

Dick Hoopes spotted two Avocets around 6:30pm today on a gravel bar near the
boat launch at LaDue.  Words spread rapidly and several birders and
onlookers were able to get good views through spotting scopes.  Here are
some poor quality digiscoped images from around 8pm
https://www.flickr.com/photos/85567104 AT N05/.  Hopefully someone else has
better pictures and will post them later.



Unfortunately both birds took flight eastward about 9pm and went very high
as they flew away.



Water levels are dropping at LaDue and there are some shorebirds and terns
showing up on the mud flats and gravel bars from the boathouse north to the
dam (along Valley Road).

There is some shorebird habitat at Medusa Marsh in Erie County.

This morning I found least and semi-palmated sandpiper, semi-palmated plover, 
spotted sandpiper, and killdeer. 

Also lots of herons and egrets including a couple of snowy egrets.

Many Pied-billed grebes and the trumpeter swan family was out, still with 5 
young cygnets. 


Will keep an eye on this spot to see what else might drop in.

Happy Birding!

Hi Cole-

Pulled your e-mail off the Ohio birds list, and based on your photos on
flickr, figured you were from the NE Ohio region. I am working in Ashtabula
this week, and thought it would be worth passing along that I saw and heard
2 Fish Crows there earlier this evening. They were on the powerlines and
also perching on top of the Arby's and Wendy's and near intersection of
Route 20 and West Ave on the west side of town. I know I've heard that Fish
Crows have colonized a few areas around Cleveland, but don't really know
how unusual they are in Ashtabula. They are still quite rare along the Lake
Erie shore further north in NY.  I'm thinking they probably have been
reported in Ashtabula, but figured you might be interested to hear about
the sighting. Also feel free to pass along to Ohio birds if you want.

Dickcissel, and American White Pelican.

Our first stop was at Black River Reservation to look for Lark Sparrows,
which were reported here on the 14th. We walked part of the Bridgeway
Trail, but we were unsuccessful on our first target bird. However, we had a
nice Yellow-billed Cuckoo seen and heard. That list can be seen here:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19159689

From Black River, we headed up to the Lorain Impoundment and found a good
variety of birds. Highlights here were Redhead, Ring-necked Duck, Hooded
Merganser, juvenile American Coots, 2 Willets, 1 Least Sandpiper, 6
Semipalmated Sandpipers, and 8 Short-billed Dowitchers, plus many singing
Marsh Wrens. That list is here:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19160562

Our third stop was at the Erie County Landfill, searching for Dickcissel.
We were able to find two, which were found about a half of a mile south of
the main landfill entrance, which is on Hoover Road. List with a picture of
a male can be seen here:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19161206

The last stop of the day was East Harbor State Park, in search of the
long-staying American White Pelicans. We did not seen any pelicans however.
Shorebirds made up for that though. Our counts/estimates of the shorebirds
seen were:
1 Semipalmated Plover     60 Killdeer     5 Spotted Sandpiper     10
Greater Yellowlegs
2 Willets    50 Lesser Yellowlegs    10 Stilt Sandpipers     12 Least
Sandpipers
4 Pectoral Sandpipers     10 Semipalmated Sandpipers  and 25 Short-billed
Dowitchers.
Complete list here: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S19163231

The three of us ended with 91 species for the day.

Good Birding,

Had a great showing today in Conneaut! Up until a law mower ...yes... a lawn 
mower doing wheelies scared everything away. I'm still trying to figure out a 
good name for all of the people that come to the sandbar and destroy it without 
getting kicked off of this group... If anyone in the ODNR sees this please take 
this wonderful nature area away from this town before it is completely 
ruined!!! 


Ok I'm done venting... Here's my shorebird list at around 330pm.

4 American avocet
2 semipalmated plover
4 killdeer
5 Willet
2 lesser yellowlegs
1 sanderling
5 least sandpiper
15 semipalmated sandpiper
1 short-billed dowitcher 

Happy birding!

I chased after an ebird report, found the bird, but was told by an employee
of the cement company there that birding is no longer allowed from the road
(which IS private according to the county auditor's website).

Hopefully we can get access opened up again! Anyone have any contacts
there?

Good birding,

#109 for July is a Ruddy Turnstone.  It is/was at Alum Creek Beach this
evening at 7:00pm where the Avocets have been seen...Itmay have been there
for at least a few days because I THINK I saw it a few days ago when I was
there...but I thought it was a Killdeer...there were lots of those around,
so it would be easy to skip over it.

Three Caspian Terns,  And lots of Gulls and Geese were about all that was
there tonight.

Will post pictures on Birding Ohio and eBird here in a bit.


Happy Birding, and God Bless!

Subject: Deer Creek Wetlands
From: Melanie Shuter <mbshuter AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Fri, 18 Jul 2014 23:25:05 -0400
Today I birded what is considered the Middle Wetland of Deer Creek Wildlife
Area off of Egypt Pike in Pickaway County.  After a walk down a road to a
dike, there are two ponds, one on either side of the dike.  The north pond
has extensive mudflats with some open water.  Seen today were 100 +
Killdeer, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, Spotted Sandpipers, Least
Sandpipers (there were probably some Semipalmated Sandpipers, too), Great
Blue and Green Herons, one Great Egret, 2 Pectoral Sandpipers, 3 Dowitchers
(Short-billed I think), and one Semipalmated Plover.  There were also
Canada Geese, Mallards, and 2 Blue-winged Teal.

The south pond is all open water surrounded by cattails and willows.  There
I saw one adult Common Gallinule with two young, one Mallard female with 8
small youngsters, 2 Green Herons which I was scoping when a Least Bittern
popped out and flew over open water into some cattails.

This area should be good as shorebird migration revs up.

Subject: Magnolia warbler clear creek
From: Peggy Wang <nharrierpw AT AOL.COM>
Date: Fri, 18 Jul 2014 20:25:48 -0400
I found another (or the same, who knows) magnolia warbler today at clear creek. 
It was farther up the hemlock trail than the one I saw the other day. 


This bird perched up & was singing which seemed more like breeding bird 
behavior than an early migrant but I'm hardly an expert on such things. 


The bird I saw previously did not sing but was busy foraging & gleaning. 

I also thought I saw a hermit thrush as well. 

Hooded, ovenbird, cerulean, Blk-thr Green & Com Y-T heard or seen as well as 
White-eyed Vireo. Woods relatively quiet. 


Driving to work around 12:30pm, I was surprised to see a single Common 
Nighthawk flying above the Lancaster fairgrounds.

under the Trumpet Vine. The Oriole ignores the feeder and just goes from 
one orange flower cluster to another.
