Subject: Connecticut Warbler, Lake Erie Bluffs, Lake County 5/26
From: John Pogacnik <jpogacnik AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 26 May 2016 14:13:34 +0000
I birded the Lake Erie Bluffs in Lake County this morning. There were 17 
species of warblers including a singing Connecticut warbler. It was found in 
the extreme southwest corner of the big loop trail west of Lane Road. The bird 
was singing very sparingly and was seen only briefly. It was in a dense stand 
of honeysuckle. Other birds of note this morning were 5 mourning warblers, all 
of the flycatchers except olive-sided, and 2,800 waxwings What was interesting 
was the waxwings were flying west and all of the blue jays were heading east.

Comments: There were a lot of birds migrating today. Blue jays were heading 
east and waxwings west. A late meadowlark was seen flying out over the lake 
heading west. Warblers other than local breeders were mainly females. Most were 
high up in the red oak trees that were flowering.

The Whimbrels are probably gone. The observers on location saw them take
off and fly towards 95, but, very high. I don't know if they all took off
of not.

Jason Simonis is calling with a report of 60 Whimbrels on Wilderness Rd.
about one half mile west of the bridge. The birds are far out and a scope
is absolutely essential. The birds are on private property and MUST be
viewed from the road.

Remarkable to even have a female Hooded Warbler at Magee this week but it is 
just now sharing the same tangle with a female Connecticut Warbler just past 
post #4. Both Cuckoo are also about and the full gamut of flycatchers.

From: John Pogacnik <jpogacnik AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 25 May 2016 15:04:17 +0000
I birded the bluffs this morning on the trail and wooded areas west of Lane 
Road. There were a lot of waxwings moving west along the lake, none stopped. 
there were 16 species of warblers including 7 mournings and a chat. All of the 
flycatchers were found including 3 alder and an olive-sided. There were several 
kettles of turkey vultures, which were probably locals, but they seemed to 
attract some hawks. Hawks found were northern harrier, sharp-shinned, 
broad-winged, and red-tailed. A merlin was sighted, but may be nesting locally.

Subject: Lawrence Woods SNP and a small Out of State Query
From: Steve Jones <sjlarue1 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 25 May 2016 10:57:44 -0400
First Lawrence Woods SNP in Hardin County is still settling into its
springtime pattern. 51 species(mostly heard) with very few if any migrants
remaining.  Still worth the walk though.

Yesterday was the first day that female mosquitoes were looking to hook up
with me, but I told them that I was a one woman man, and that they should
just go find a deer somewhere. :-D

List below.

And now the quick query. The family and I are heading up to Niagra Falls US
side, in July, and I was wondering if anyone knows of some good places to
find the eastern US woodland and north coast birds that we don't get
here...I'm plan to go just to Lake Ontario though, not to the coast...so
anywhere between Central Ohio and Lake Ontario north Pennsylvania and New
York.

Thanks much

Congrats to Chris Zacharias on hitting 200!!!! today in Montgomery co with the 
Connecticut warbler at hills and dales park in Dayton. He's managed to find, 
chase down, fight and even sometimes sweet talk 36 out of 37 warbler species in 
the county. Only one he's missing is the one that eats worms (worm eating). 
Will he try for 300? Stay tuned from SW Ohio 


Bird On!!!

A Connecticut Warbler was heard singing, but never seen, this morning
between 7:00 and 7:30 in Hills and Dales Metropark in
Dayton/Kettering/Oakwood.

The bird was initially located west of the boardwalk, opposite the two
benches that face east.

A little later, the bird had moved about 100 feet north, remaining on the
west side of the boardwalk.

Sorry for the late post, but we've been entertaining visiting relatives. During 
the visit, however, we took them on a hike at this newly-opened State Nature 
Preserve down near Lancaster. It has a long trail that follows an old logging 
road up Arney Run for nearly a mile before making two loops up the western 
ridge of the valley. The forest is rich here, both in plants and birds, and we 
had a great hike. In about 2.5 hours we had 


3-4 Yellow-billed Cuckoos
Many WoodPewees & Acadians, fewer Great Cresteds and E.Kingbirds
2 Yellow-throated and 30+ Red-eyed Vireos
10+ Swainsons and 8+ Wood Thrushes
16 warbler species, including Parula, Worm-eating, Tennessee, Magnolia, 
Chesnut-sided, Black-thr.Blue, Blackburnian, Yellow-throated, Black&White, 
AmerRedstart, Ovenbirds (many), LaWaterthrush, Kentucky, Hooded, Canada, 
ComYellowthroat 

8-9 Scarlet Tanagers
4-5 Indigo Buntings and 3 Rose-br.grosbeaks

Birds weren't the only treat. There was also a fresh hatch of both Tiger 
Swallowtails and Spring Azures, and we also had blooming Pink Lady's Slippers.

I took a hike in Bedford Reservation (Cuyahoga County) this morning in the 
trails above Hermit's Hollow (west of Overlook Lane). I was hoping for some 
Hooded Warblers because this area has been good for them and for thrushes in 
the past. A short distance down the trail I met a male Barred Owl perched in a 
tree. The owl let out some long "whoooooooos" before flying into the woods. 
Very cool! 


Later I checked the paved Alexander Road bike path to Sagamore Road and heard 
another Barred Owl calling across the field in the woods to the west.

I spent the day in Ashtabula Co. yesterday.  First bird of note was an Am. 
kestrel along SR 7 in Richmond Twp.  From there I went to Denmark Twp. and was 
fortunate to see the pair of upland sandpipers on poles along SR 193 just south 
of Stollaker Rd.  Also in that area were wild turkey, 6 bobolinks, and e. 
meadowlark.  Next I went to Conneaut harbor.  The gates to the spit are open, 
then the sand road is well-packed all the way to the spit.  There's a 
nice-sized pool at the east, it attracted the only migrant shorebirds: 
semipalmated plover, least sandpiper, and semipalmated sandpiper.  Other 
Conneaut birds were double-crested cormorants, a couple bald eagles, 6 
Bonaparte's Gulls, 3 great black-backed gulls, belted kingfisher, 5 warbling 
vireos, 75+ bank swallows (active nests seen at big sandpile in industrial part 
of harbor), tree swallow, barn swallows, gray catbird, yellow warblers, 
yellow-rumped warbler, and Baltimore oriole.  It was early afternoon by then, 
I headed to Indian Trails Park at E. 24th St. in Ashtabula.  The pond there 
was too high for shorebirds, but I did hear warbling vireo and yellow warblers 
at the park.  Last place I visited was Walnut Beach; found there were a pair 
of spotted sandpipers, 2 Caspian terns, 5 warbling vireos, gray catbird, c. 
yellowthroat, yellow warblers, song sparrows, and Baltimore orioles.  Craig 
Holt, Lowellville

Julie and I walked the bike trail east out of South Charleston this morning.
We found a few warblers and the usual nesting birds but we also found a
Bell's Vireo. We heard it singing and then got a good look at it. It was
about one and a half miles east of South Charleston. There is a large old
white and yellow building that used to be part of the feed lot on the south
side of the trail. We were past that a little ways.

Decent day at Lawrence Woods SNP.

Birds were in good quantities singing over top of one another with areas of
silence to help collect thoughts. :-)
Them French-Canadian Flycatchers (Acadian) are back and are scattered
through the woods.  Cerulean Warblers are between 3 and 4.  Geese were
absent today with only a couple flybys.
Looks like the Protonotary Warbler is picking nesting sites...looks like
one may be the box in the pond on the left.  It is also looking for natural
cavities on the right as you enter, and across the pond on the left.
Hopefully a female hears his pleas soon.
Bobolinks are in the field singing every once and a while.
Common Yellowthroats are all around the parking lot...and I saw one at the
pond.
Weirdest bird of the day was a Killdeer flyby.
Mosquito population is minimal at the moment with only two flybys.  Look
for increasing traffic as we go into June. :-D

Lists for prairie and boardwalk below.

Happy birding and God bless.

Great bird!  Thanks for Stefan Minnig's update yesterday and for telling us
on Friday evening at Oldfield Beach, Indian Lake SP at the Whimbrel

An olive-sided flycatcher was found this morning on the Crane Creek estuary

farthest west white "National Wildlife Refuge" sign. There's a clearing
there and the flycatcher spent most of the time on the top of a dead tree.

very dense, and it is a ways in. A visual would be tricky. It is on the south

I have personally seen this bird fly.  It went up about 100 feet then
circled back and relanded...didn't seem to have a problem taking
off...could be something more magnetic...

A Red-Necked Grebe is still present as of 6pm at a small pond off of State 
Route 287, just south of Middleburg, Ohio in Logan County. This is undoubtedly 
the same bird first reported May 1 and is theorized by others I've talked with 
to be injured in some way, due to the fact that it has been present in the pond 
so long. Nothing visually stands out to me to back up the prior statement. When 
I initially saw the bird on May 1, it was going through the motions of taking 
off, but only traveled with good speed 50-80 feet down the pond before settling 
back down in the water. Since this time, I've only seen it floating. Today the 
grebe was floating at the edge of the pond nearest to the road with good 
visuals. Of course that makes sense, as my camera was at home.

A late day tour of the auto drive today, Saturday, from 4:15PM to 6:45PM was 
very rewarding. We recorded fifty-tthree species of birds. MS6, on the 
southwest corner of Ottawa Lucas County Road and Stange Road, in Ottawa County, 
provided the highlight of the day, a single Marbled Godwit, plus Dunlins, 
Semipalmated Plovers, Semipalmated Sandpipers, Killdeer, Least Sandpipers, and 
Caspian Terns. The remainder of the birds were seen in the Lucas County 
sections. From the previous location mentioned, looking across the dike to the 
north into MS3, we viewed a pair of Sandhill Cranes with a single tiny colt 
swimming along behind mom and dad, who were both wading. Also here was a late 
Horned Grebe in breeding plumage along with a single Gadwall. Continuing the 
drive to the east in MS5 was a male American Wigeon and a Black-crowned 
Night-Heron. Following the outside perimeter roads looking west from North 
Estuary Road into Pool 3 were 32 male Wood Ducks with no females. From 
Trumpeter Trail looking to the north, the Cliff Swallow colony on the Metzger 
Marsh control structure could be seen. Continuing along Metzger Marsh Drive 
were numerous Marsh Wrens and Swamp Sparrows, a Sora, a White-crowned Sparrow, 
and a Common Nighthawk, just to name some of the species seen today. The most 
unusual sighting of the day was a Pink Flamingo in Lucas County, that could be 
viewed with a spotting scope looking west down the Ottawa Lucas County Road 
Dike, from the Marbled Godwit site. Looking down the dike to the far end of 
MS3, scope sweep a short distance to the right to a dirt pile, check out the 
right side of it. The tour of the auto drive was a fun way to end the day.

From: rob thorn <robthorn AT EARTHLINK.NET>

I walked along the bikepaths of this south Columbus park during this rainy 
morning. Despite the weather, there wasn't a great fallout, but migrants could 
still be found with some persistent searching. I checked at 2 areas in 
3-Creeks: Cruiser park & the Groveport bikepath aa well as the Confluence area, 
and also stopped at Blacklick Park in nearby Groveport. Notables included: 


Yellow-billed Cuckoo - 1 was calling in the rain at Groveport's Blacklick Park.
Pileated Woodpeckers - singles were at both locations at 3-Creeks
Flycatchers - Pewees, Acadians, and GreatCresteds were at both locations, while 
the bikepath had Willow Flycatchers, and Confluence had an Alder calling near 
the powerline right-of-way, a reliable spot for them. 


Vireos - only Warblings & Red-eyed here, but they were common. A 
Yellow-throated was at Confluence, while a White-eyed was at Blacklick Park 

Thrushes - Swainson's were widespread, but never saw more than 4 at any single 
site; Wood Thrushes were also at all locations. 

Mimids - Catbirds were abundant at both spots, but the only Thrasher was at 
Blacklick Park in Groveport 


Warblers - Redstarts were the most common, if you can call 8 in 2 hours common. 
Next in abundance were Magnolias, Yellows, Yellow-throateds, and Common 
Yellowthroats. I also found Parulas, Nashville, Tennessee, Black-thr.Green, 
Blackburnians, Chesnut-sided, Blackpoll, Ovenbirds, N.Waterthrush, Canada (1 at 
Confluence), and Mourning (1 singing along the Groveport bikepath). 


Buntings,Grosbeaks - Indigo Buntings and Rose-br.Grosbeaks were common at both 
locations in 3-Creeks 

Orioles - Baltimores were along the creeks at both locations, while an Orchard 
was singing at Cruiser Pond.

I stopped at Highbanks MetroPark today, hiking around the Dripping Rock Trail 
as well as along the Olentangy River in the Big Meadows area. For comparison, I 
also hiked the ravines of nearby Shale Hollow and the riverside meadow along 
Taggart Rd. Some migrants, like flycatchers & vireos, were very noticeable, 
while others, like warblers & thrushes, were very spotty. Notables included: 


Flycatchers - Pewees and Acadian Flycatchers were abundant in the forested 
ravines; I had 20+ Acadian along the DRT. Big Meadows also had an Alder & Least 
Flycatcher, while Taggert Meadows had 3 Willows. Great Crested Flycatchers and 
E.Kingbirds were present in both riverside meadows. 


Vireos - Red-eyed were abundant in the forested ravines, while Warbling were 
common along the Olentangy River at both Big Meadows and Taggart Rd. Also had 
White-eyed and yellow-throated along the DRT. 


Thrushes - small #s of Wood Thrushes and Swainson's were in the forested 
ravines 

Mimids - only Catbirds, but they were common, especially in the riverside 
meadows 


Warblers - the only common ones were Chesnut-sided, Redstarts, and 
CommonYellowthroats, but I also found Yellows (both riverside meadows), Parula, 
Yellow-throated, Black-thr.Green, Blackburnians (2  AT  Shale Hollow), Magnolias, 
Tennessee, Canada (1 Big Meadows), Kentucky (1 DRT), Hooded, both Waterthrushes 


Grosbeaks,Buntings - no grosbeaks, but lots of Indigo Buntings, especially in 
riverside meadows 

Orioles - plenty of Baltimores and Orchards in the riverside meadows, both Big 
Meadows and Taggart Rd.

A short time ago at about 3:40PM today, Friday, we had our first of the year 
for Ohio Cattle Egrets, two of them, on the south side of SR2, about halfway 
between SR590 and Lickert-Harder Road. They were in a ditch running 
perpendicular to SR2 about 150 feet south of the road, and just east of a 
residence at 14594 SR2. This is also just west of the entrance to Ottawa NWR.

From: Michael Gertz <michaeltgertz AT GMAIL.COM>

Apologies for the late post. I had what believe was a SWAINSON'S WARBLER this 
morning at the trees near the Hebrew College driveway right across Clifton Ave 
from Burnet Woods in Cincinnati. Initially I thought I had a Worm-eating 
Warbler. I watched the bird for over 10 minutes, and was a bit perplexed at the 
time. I went back at lunch to get a photo at lunch after realizing what I had 
seen. No luck at lunch. The bird had dark stripe through its eye with light 
eyebrow above. The movement through the eye was stronger than a Tennessee 
Warbler and more reminiscent of a Waterthrush. Noticably long sharp bill, not 
hooked like a Red-eyed Vireo. I had good looks of the bird's back and top of 
head. Warm brown back and cap, not green or gray. Off-white/creamy unstreaked 
breast and under tail. The bird did not have a stripe down the middle of the 
top of its head like a Worm-eating or Black-and-white. There was no yellow 
under the tail like a Palm Warbler or Red-eyed Vireo. A Swainson's Warbler in a 
tree above the Clifton sidewalks is pretty weird, but it had just rained, so 
I'm guessing this was a migrant trap situation. This is a rare sighting, so I 
welcome any questions, discussion, and/or criticism. 


Keep smiling birders, 

Mike Gertz, Over-the-Rhine

From: rob thorn <robthorn AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Tue, 17 May 2016 20:55:23 -0400
I squeezed out a little time to bird along Big Walnut Creek Greenbelt in 
Gahanna (McCorkle Park and nearby areas) and nearby Gahanna Woods, finding a 
fairly slow day for migrants despite the unsettled weather. Thrushes were up, 
especially at Gahanna Woods, and flycatchers were more noticeable, while 
warblers, tanagers, and grosbeaks were all in a lull. Notables included: 


Flycatchers - multiple Pewees, Great Cresteds, and Acadians at both sites
Vireos - Red-eyed common at both sites; Gahanna Woods also had a singing 
White-eyed 

Kinglets - no kinglets at either site

Thrushes - good #s at Gahanna Woods with 16 Swainson's 2 Wood, 1 Gray-cheek and 
1 Veery in 1 hour. The Greenbelt had 6 Swainson's and 2 Wood Thrushes. 


Mimids - plenty of Catbirds at both sites, but nothing else

Warblers - miserly #s, except for Redstarts. Gahanna Woods had Magnolia, 
Chesnut-sided, Ovenbird, and Com.Yellowthroat, while the Greenbelt had these 
plus Parula, Yellow-throated, Tennessee, and Blackpoll. 


Tanagers - 1 Scarlet at Gahanna Woods, nothing at the Greenbelt
Grosbeaks,Buntings - a few Indigo Buntings at both sites
Sparrows - still a few White-throateds at Gahanna Woods, along with expected 
Chipping & Songs 

Orioles - 2 Baltimores along the Greenbelt.

From: "J. Hochadel" <jahochadel AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Tue, 17 May 2016 18:58:52 -0400
Sorry for the late post - these sightings/notes are from yesterday's bird
walk on the bike trail.
The wind made it difficult to hear the birds singing, but many were
actively feeding in the cold early morning hours. My same five mile hike
produced 71 species total.

Highlights include:

   - There were 4 vireo species, with Red-eyed being most numerous (13).
   - There were 13 species of warblers, with Yellow (19), Blue-winged (7),
   Tennessee (15), Nashville (11), Common Yellowthroat (15) and American
   Redstart (27) all being very vocal. One Nashville started singing while
   perched in the open. His colors were stunning!
   - Baltimore Orioles (6) were singing, actively defending territories and
   gathering nesting material.
   - Rose-breasted Grosbeaks were gathering nesting materials.
   - Eight (8) Purple Martins flew over, chattering like crazy, while
   nearby a Tree Swallow was "claiming" and defending the newspaper
   compartment that was built into a mailbox.
   - Veery and Wood Thrush were not singing full songs - no doubt due to
   active nests being tended.
   - Eastern Towhee (14) were also being quieter than usual. A pair scolded
   me while I was watching a female American Redstart gather nesting material.
   She was stripping fine hairlike strands of wood from a downed branch. She
   made 5 trips while I was there. She flew far into the woods so I could not
   locate the nest, but the male was nearby keeping a watchful eye on me.
   - A flock of 18 Ring-billed Gulls and 2 Herring Gulls flew in while I
   was standing at a pond. They circled for about two minutes, calling
   constantly, then gradually drifted south.
   - A big surprise was two Hooded Mergansers that engaged in what appeared
   to be a mating ritual while swimming on a pond. They mirrored each other's
   behavior while rearing up, splashing water with their wings, diving while
   splashing water, and bobbing up and down while facing each other.
   Fascinating! I've never seen this behavior before.... But wait, there's
   more! They disappeared for a bit so I checked out the shorebirds (1
   Killdeer, 2 Spotted Sandpipers and 4 Least Sandpipers). When I searched for
   the Mergansers, I could only see one. It was the female with 8 newly
   fledged young swimming with her! They were very tiny and stayed close to
   their very protective momma. Seriously, folks, they were adorable. :)
   - About midway through my hike, I couldn't stop watching this one
   Red-bellied Woodpecker. It appeared to be extremely agitated as it kept
   aggressively poking into a wide crack in a tree. That really got my
   attention, so I stood still and waited. Suddenly, it poked faster and then
   "plucked" a Flying Squirrel from the crack in the tree and tossed it! A wad
   of the squirrel's fur went flying as well. The squirrel tumbled in midair
   then glided to another tree and scrambled inside another crack. The
   woodpecker pursued it but didn't see where the squirrel went in, so it kept
   listening to the tree. (It actually put the side of its head close to the
   tree several times in different spots.) Finally, it found the crack and
   kept looking inside. But the squirrel must have gone deep into the hole
   because the woodpecker didn't attack it again.

Hi,

I was surprised and pleased to find a Kentucky Warbler in my backyard on
Gildersleeve Mountain, this afternoon.  A first for my yard and brings the
all time warbler count for my yard to 27 species.

Subject: North Coast Open - Big Day Competition -- May 20-21
From: Matthew Kemp <mattkemp04 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Tue, 17 May 2016 09:42:19 -0400
The Toledo Naturalists' Association will host the 22nd annual North Coast
Open birding competition this year on May 20 and 21.  The competition
covers Lucas, Wood, Ottawa, Sandusky, and Erie Counties, which collectively
have many of the top birding sites in the state:  the Oak Openings, Magee
Marsh, Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, Metzger Marsh, Maumee Bay State
Park, Pickerel Creek, Pipe Creek, and Sheldon Marsh, among many others.

If you're looking for a cure for the Biggest Week hangover/withdrawal, or
just need another excuse to get back out to the lakeshore in May, this is
it!  Breeders should all be back on territory, migrants should still be
plentiful, and this is prime time for goodies like Connecticut Warbler and
Olive-sided Flycatcher.

Teams compete in a variety of divisions:  Junior, Senior, Open, Freestyle
(ideal for families with little kids), and Human-Powered.  The overall
winner is awarded the prestigious Peregrine Cup.  The competition runs from
7pm May 20 to 7pm May 21.  Bird all night or grab a few hours of sleep
before the dawn chorus hits.  Teams must turn in their lists at the finish
line at 7pm on Saturday, which this year is at Tony Packo's in East
Toledo.

See the "Local Birding" tab on the TNA website (toledonaturalist.org) for
rules, registration, and past results.  Note that the rules vary slightly
from traditional ABA Big Day rules (e.g., everyone on the team must
see/hear every bird; no broadcast of tapes/recordings).  There is no fee to
participate.

Feel free to email me with any questions.

Cheers,

Matt Kemp

Subject: Biggest Week In American Birding Adventure Recap
From: robert lane <ohiomagpie AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Tue, 17 May 2016 02:50:45 +0000
The following is a 2016 modified version of a post I did in 2010. The "Biggest 
Week In American Birding", I believe, has to be the largest and most attended, 
birding social event, anywhere. A tour thru the parking lot at the Magee 
Boardwalk area is like visiting an art festival in my opinion. Vanity license 
plates representing states from all over America and several Canadian provinces 
can be found. It is always exciting visiting with so many present birding 
friends and meeting so many new ones! It is definitely the ultimate birder 
gathering. This year my wife Denise and I attended the event for the entire 
duration, from Thursday night May 5th thru Monday morning May 16th. It was 
worth it! During this period we recorded over 180 bird species, which included 
31 warbler species. The sightings were at locations in Ottawa and Lucas County. 
We stayed in our motorhome at Turtle Creek Marina and Campground with our seven 
Sun Conure parrots. 78 species of birds were recorded just at the campground, 
including Black-crowned Night-Herons, Pine Siskins, and Orchard Orioles. The 
obvious #1 highlight of the period was the Curlew Sandpiper on Thursday May 12, 
followed by the #2 Kirtland's Warbler at the east end of The Boardwalk on the 
return later in the day. #3 was a flock of six Lapland Longspurs, two being 
males in breeding plumage, at Howard Farms on Monday morning May 9. It's hard 
to say what was more exciting, seeing a Life Bird like the Curlew Sandpiper, or 
witnessing the hour pilgrimage west of birders sacrificing their chance for a 
Kirtland's sighting, for this once in a life-time chance for the Curlew 
Sandpiper. Stories could be told of the many plan changing happenings related 
to the Curlew Sandpiper. Having to be in my opinion the most altering event, 
would be that of the Holmes County based Amish group doing an Ohio Big Day, 
already twelve hours into their pursuit, they started at midnight, almost to 
the Kirtland's site, aborting and scrapping the remainder of their Big Day, to 
go back, they had been at Oak Openings 


earlier in the day, and see the probable once in a life-time in Ohio sighting. 
The biggest advantage of staying thru the entire festivities is being able to 
have time to visit new locations, and revisit on a daily basis, the local 
hotspots, which had an ever changing variety of birds. A not to be forgotten 
way for us to end the good times, was having fourteen species of warblers late 
yesterday afternoon, Sunday, on the dike at the end of the road to the cabins, 
at Maumee State Park. Bonus birds here were Golden-winged, Mourning, 
Orange-crowned, Canada, and Blue-winged. We will do it again next year!!! 
Actually we plan to be back later this week thru the weekend, in hopes of 
finding a Connecticut Warbler, and looking forward to more memorable moments.

I spent about 3 1/2 hours at Lake Erie Bluffs in Lake County this morning. 
There were a quite a few warblers moving overhead to the west, but only a few 
were stopping. I ended up seeing 16 species with the most notable being a 
prothonotary. Other birds of note were a pair of merlins that acted like they 
might be nesting pair. Merlins nested here a few years ago. Also of note was a 
long-eared owl that was being chased and harassed by a group of blue jays. The 
wind switched more west-northwest by 9:00 and migration ceased.

Just saw & photographed the disabled Fox Sparrow again.  It bathed and sat
in the sun, then hopped back around serviceberry for another bath.

I checked out the Highbanks pet trail around 1 pm today. A couple of warblers 
were calling, but I only recognized the hooded warbler. I saw a female redstart 
and a magnolia, but the big surprise was a blue grosbeak. He was past the dip 
that occurs about 1/8 mile into the trail, eating worms, but he flew toward the 
new walking path. I also heard and saw an indigo bunting, but this other blue 
bird was definitely a male blue grosbeak. Gray bill, wing feathers outlined in 
rust, more slender, elongated shape. First for me in Ohio.

Sunday 15 May and Monday 16 May I observed Eastern Kingbirds and Tree Swallows 
feeding on insects near the edge the prairie. Today I observed a pair of Tree 
Swallows flying in and out of a nest box in the prairie. I hope they are going 
to nest, if they do that will be a first for the ranch.

I have already posted this on Birding Ohio, but if there is anyone out
there that has an estimate as to the amount of people went to get the
Curlew, could you please let me know...maybe I should ask the sheriff :-D.
...anyhew, I am going to write a blog about it, and wanted to get that put
in there.

Thanks

Shannon Thompson posted on the Ohio Birding Facebook group that she lost a 
nylon zip bag containing two Leica eyepieces - a 20x and a 32x wide angle - at 
the Curlew Sandpiper site on May 15.  She is offering a reward for the return 
of her lenses.  Please pass this on to anybody you know who was at that 
location yesterday. 


Thank you,Kathi Hutton

​

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

http://ohioebirdhotspots.wikispaces.com/



New  Ohio Birding Drives have been added.

http://ohioebirdhotspots.wikispaces.com/Ohio+Birding+Drives

Birding drives have been developed for Ohio’s “under birded” areas, 27
counties with fewer than 1000 eBird checklists submitted, hoping to
encourage birders to visit these counties when they are traveling in
Ohio.  Here
are the newest birding drives.
