More on the birds and the bees: I posted around 4:00 this afternoon about a 
female Summer Tanager at our bee hives. I left the house for an appointment and 
returned about 7:30, and she is still hanging out feasting on bees. 
Interestingly, there is a male Cardinal who doesn't like her in his patch, 
apparently. So whenever she flies in to grab a bee, he swoops in from another 
direction and chases her away. She hides in a Witch Hazel bush until all is 
quiet, and then comes back for more.

Hi all,

I spent the morning volunteering in the preparatives for the Nature Center at 
Shaker Lakes plant sale this Saturday morning. New birds heard (not seen) there 
this morning were Baltimore Oriole and Great Crested Flycatcher. Both were 
independently heard by other people, but none of us saw them. 


Best wishes,

Sometimes you are lucky enough to be taking a picture when something
interesting happens.  Four Rose-breasted Grosbeak's were close enough for
some good pics this morning so I obliged them.  However, this 'double date'
turned ugly fast!  First one female attacked the other.  The boys looked on
for a short while but soon one of them decided to get into the fray.
Eventually all four were tangled together. No damage seemed to be done to
anyone but it sure made for interesting pics.  Check out Flickr for peek at
the action https://www.flickr.com/photos/85567104 AT N05/.

Almost missed a Great-crested Flycatcher in our tiny front yard this
afternoon.  Yesterday an Ovenbird showed up in back.  My neighbor Randy
Rogers spied a Black-billed Cuckoo a few days ago, evidently eating tent
caterpillars in an unkempt yard in our subdivision.

My wife and I are beekeepers. I happened to be watching our bees with my binos, 
through my family room window, when an interesting (and beautiful) bird dropped 
onto the ground in front of one of the hives. She snatched a bee and flew to a 
nearby shrub. She then flew into an oak tree right in front of my window and I 
got a great look: Female Summer Tanager--new yard bird for us. I checked 
pictures in a couple of field guides and ran across this comment in the Stokes 
Summer Tanager entry: "Fond of eating bees and wasps, and will raid their 
nests." This one must have read the book.

From: Stefan Gleissberg <stefan AT GLEISSBERG.ORG>
Date: Wed, 4 May 2016 14:35:19 -0400
I had a productive birding morning along the bike path in Athens between 
Currier Street and Armitage Road. I checked the old canal there in hopes for 
Prothonotary Warbler, without success. Instead, I found (and managed to 
photograph) a Wilsonís Warbler there. There was also a Northern Watertrush, a 
Palm Warbler, and a Yellow-rumped Warbler. A male Wood Duck was on the water 
and a Green Heron (my first-of year) was in the trees. I wondered if both may 
be nesting there. On the opposite side of the path I had a singing Lincolnís 
Sparrow. 


Half way along the mile or so of bike path, I could hear a Yellow-breasted Chat 
singing from behind the railroad tracks. They have been there in previous 
years. There were severeal Yellow Warblers and Common Yellowthroats, one 
gorgeous male Magnolia Warbler, and several singing White-eyed Vireos and 
Indigo Buntings. I had two singing Orchard Orioles, both were 1st summer males 
which are yellow, not chestnut, with a black face marking. 


All 56 species seen (and some pictures) are listed here:

Subject: More regional checklists
From: Bill Whan <billwhan AT COLUMBUS.RR.COM>
Date: Wed, 4 May 2016 11:55:39 -0400
I found some more checklists, and also some lists of lists, so here they
are:

Baker, W. C. Breeding birds of Columbiana County. 1934
MacCoughey, V. The Birds of Darke County, Ohio. 1911
Field, I. The Birds of Licking County. 1903,
Henninger, W. A Preliminary List of the Birds of Middle and
        Southern Ohio. 1902.
Hicks, 1934. The Breeding Birds of Muskingum COunty, Ohio. 1934
Jones, L. 1902. The Summer Birds of the Lake Erie Islands. 1902
Langdon, F. A Revised list of Cincinnati Birds.  1879.
Wharram, S. A List of the birds of Ashtabula County. 1925.
West,  R. Summer Resident Birds of Belmont County, Ohio. 1935.
Oberholser, H. List of the Birds of Wayne County, Ohio 1935.  (see the
work on the previous list)
Price,H. The Summer Birds of Northwestern Ohio. 1935.
West, R. Harrison County, Summer residents and visitants. 1935.
      These are some of the rarer checklists, that you may have to seek
on the internet or in a good library; frankly, I was surprised to find
how many areas in Ohio have gotten this kind of treatment, and how
different the older ones are from today's.

Hi,

As Bill notes these publications are very useful.

As someone interested in the occurrence and ecology of the avafauna of the
Cleveland region I find myself constantly checking both the first edition
of "Birds of the Cleveland Region" (Williams) and the 4th edition (Rosche)

Looking at the differences over time can be especially instructive.

There are a surprising number of publications that list and discuss the
Ohio birds of regions (other than parks, etc.) in Ohio. I thought I'd
offer a list of a stack I took off my shelves, and ask others if they
know of more. These are in no particular order:
        --a new one that may come out this month is "The Birds of Hocking
County, Ohio," by J. Watts, P. Knoop, and G. Coovert.
        "Birds of the Hamilton County Park District & SW Ohio," by R. Austing
and D. Imbrogno. 1976
        "Birds of the Lake St. Marys Area," C. Clark and J. Sipe. 1970.
        "Annotated Checklist of the Birds of Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area. N.
Moore. 1996.
        "Birds of the Toledo Area," L. Campbell. 1968
        "Birds of the Cleveland Region," L. Rosche 2004.
        "Birds of the Toledo Area," M. Anderson, E. Durbin, T. Kemp, S. Lauer,
E. Tramer. 2002.
        "Birds of Dayton," Committee of the Dayton Audubon Society 1984.
        "Birds of Cleveland," A. B. Williams. 1950.
        "Birds of Wayne County Ohio, 1896," H. C. Oberholser. 1999.
        "Birds of the Pymatuning Region," W. C. Grimm. 1952.
        "Birds of Seneca County, Ohio," H.T. Bartlett & H.W. Hintz. 1989.
        "Birds of Lucas County," L. Campbell. 1940.
        "Birds of the Oxbow," D. Styer, 1993.
        "Noteworthy Bird Records of Wayne and Holmes Counties, Ohio" 2004. J.
Herman.
        "Birds of Wayne County, Ohio" J. Herman 1954.
        "Unusual Bird Records for Richland County, Ohio. J. Herman. 2003.
        "Birds of Southwestern Ohio," E. Kemsies and W. Randle. 1953.
        "Birds of Hardin County, Ohio," D. W. Smith 1999.
        "Birds of Central Ohio," B. Whan 2016 & ongoing online.
        "The Birds of Buckeye Lake, Ohio," M. Trautman 1940.
        "Birds of Western Lake Erie," M. Trautman 2006.

        I'm sure I've forgotten to add some, and others can offer more titles
of regional (not statewide) annotated bird lists; I'm not talking about
Ohio guides or mere checklists or field guides or picture books. I can
pass more titles along if I get news of more of them. I sure miss a new
Cincinnati-area publication, and hope someone's working on it...

Has anyone seen or heard the fish crows that have been around the Rockside

(This is in Cuyahoga County for other birders.)

I checked the eBird Species map. No recent reports have been entered. But, I 
know not everyone does eBird. 


Any updates would be appreciated. I may be in that area tomorrow or Friday.

From: Steve Jones <sjlarue1 AT GMAIL.COM>

Greetings!

I played hooky from work...(which I'm glad I did cause I had a flat tire
half way to Upper Sandusky.) I would say that I started birding at Killdeer
Plains...but the shorebird birding was dismal. So I started birding for the
day up at Upper (Sandusky) getting the Western Tanager. :-D  The owner of
the house came out a talked with us for a while and as if on cue, it just
appeared right in front of our eyes. She had some pretty good yard birds
all together.  Her yard count list I made is a high count feeder watch.

I then piddled around Killdeer Plains Pond 30 for a bit with Ron Sempier
and John Games.

Then headed over to Lawrence Woods for some quiet weekday birding...and as
I was leaving, I got point blank 15 feet away Magee Marsh-esque views of a
pair of Scarlet Tanagers...at one point, one flew right in front of me, so
close I could reach out and grab it. :-D  Somehow I missed Greg Miller and
his crew coming in, but they eventually passed me as we were making my way
out..I go reeeealy slow when I go through those woods. :-D  they got the
Boblinks I reported last time, and I got the Veery they found
today...win/win. :-D  I had 75 species for the day when I left Lawrence
Woods and added 5 more by the time I got home...nice day all around. :-D

Lists of the majors below.

Happy birding and God bless!

Subject: Connecticut Warbler & More - Western Reserve Greenway Bike Trail [Trumbull County]
From: "J. Hochadel" <jahochadel AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Tue, 3 May 2016 19:58:19 -0400
Something told me to check the bike trail for migrants this morning. I sure
am glad I did! My five mile walk (round trip) yielded 73 species (list
below) for 5 hours of birding, plus one more upon returning home for a
total of 74 species. Early this morning, most birds were low (in shrubs or
on the ground) and singing. By late morning most of them were high (in the
tree tops) and quiet. At times there were so many birds singing that my
ears were ringing, especially when several Gray Catbirds and Yellow
Warblers were singing only feet away from me. Side note: I quit counting
chipmunks when I reached 50. They were everywhere....

Surprises included one male Connecticut Warbler (observed for two minutes)
and three Marsh Wrens. Several species high in numbers (for here) include:
House Wren, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Gray Catbird, Yellow Warbler,
Blue-winged Warbler, American Redstart, Common Yellowthroat, and Eastern
Towhee,

My favorite moment was watching a male Hooded Warbler flitting around in
the understory. He landed on the branch of a small sapling about 15 feet
away from me, right in a ray of sunlight, He threw back his head and sang
over and over again. :)

Mid-afternoon today (5/3/16) found an active pair of Upland Sandpipers
on their traditional site - Stollaker Rd. just east of Rt. 193.  They were
active
in the air and on the ground, & vocalizing.  Many perches atop telephone
poles
and on the wires - excellent views and photo ops.

A male Northern Harrier hunted the same field along Rt. 193 a bit to the
south.

I spent a few hours checking parks along Big Walnut Creek in Gahanna, visiting 
McCorkle Park & Old Ridenour Road this morning and Woodside Green & Academy 
Parks this afternoon. The overcast weather served to ground a fair flight of

while others (thrushes,tanagers,sparrows) were scarce. Notables included: 


Ruby-thr.Hummingbird
Crested Flycatchers
Blue-headed Vireos
Warbling Vireo
Red-eyed Vireo
Ruby-cr.Kinglets - at least 4
Gnatcatchers - still in double-digits
Veery
Wood Thrush
Gray Catbirds - lots
Cedar Waxwings - one small flock of 5

Warblers - 19 species, with Yellow-rumped the most common, followed by Yellow, 
Parula, Black-thr.Green, and Nashville. Also had Tennessee, Blue-winged, 
Prothonotary, Chesnut-sided, Blackburnian, Yellow-throated, Palms, 
Black&Whites, AmerRedstart, Bay-breasted (an early male at Woodside Green), 
Ovenbird, Com.Yellowthroat, both species of Waterthrush. 


Indigo Buntings

Absolutely support this, been waiting for a long time. First and
foremost more financial support
is great, better more habitat.  I'll buy both.
Second tired of hearing
that only hunters and fisherman support the NWR ergo no one else has a
right
to have an opinion.  It gives a voice to supporting habitat for non-game
species.

Hi,

The Golden-crowned Sparrow persists at Paula Lozano's House in Lakewood,
1291 Granger Ave.  As of 11:30 am.  Park on the street and stay on the back
porch.  The bird comes very close and offers nice looks, and opportunities
for precious photos.

I was very excited to host 4 Purple Finches (3M & 1F) at my feeder today.
They were squabbling with a male House Finch (he left shorty afterward). It
was interesting to see them side-by-side. Joining in the fun were
White-throated and White-crowned Sparrows, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and a
Yellow Warbler that seemed to be curious about all of the activity at the
feeder. An Eastern Meadowlark sang from the trees nearby but did not visit
the feeder area.

The often dark damp, rainy with some sun has certainly helped with the
overall goodness off migration so far.  Often warbler etc flights are
best around mid morning and sometimes again in mid afternoon.  Clear
skies in the afternoon are often good for overhead migrants i.e.
raptors

Good birding!

From: Bill Heck <bill.heck AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Mon, 2 May 2016 12:29:06 -0400
This seems like a great idea, but.....

Ohio has something of this sort: the Wildlife Legacy Stamp. It's a stamp;
it sells for $15 (slightly less than the proposed $20 federal stamp); it is
not at all identified with extractive uses; and all of the money raised
through sales of the Wildlife Legacy Stamp go directly to habitat
acquisition and maintenance by Ohio's Division of Wildlife in places like
Wildlife Areas, rough equivalents to federal Wildlife Refuges.

The result? Well, some birders (and others) do buy Wildlife Legacy Stamps
-- but certainly nowhere near all birders in Ohio. Sale of the stamps does
bring in a few dollars but the emphasis is on "few"; the last numbers I
heard would allow ODW to acquire one or two vacant lots.

In other words, Ohio's history with a program similar to the proposed
Federal Wildlife Stamp does not exactly suggest tremendous success for a
federal program.

This is not an indictment of the proposal, and I commend Bill for pointing
out that an effort along these lines does exist. It's possible that Ohio
birders are uniquely cheap and/or uncaring. Or perhaps Ohio birders are so
pure of heart that they will not support programs administered by the
Division of Wildlife because the Division is beholden to hunters, but they
would support programs administered by the USFWS...which is just as
beholden to hunters. Or maybe a federal stamp program would cause the
heavens to open and a great light to shine upon the land. Or something.

Of course, some Ohio birders do indeed but Wildlife Legacy Stamps (and Duck
Stamps). Those who don't could easily undermine my argument about the
likely success of a federal wildlife stamp program by supporting that state
program that we already have. We'll see.

Bill,
 I was thinking about Greenlawn Cemetery yesterday. Was wondering if you knew 
who discovered it as a birding mecca and when. Any ideas?

From: Helen Ostermiller <hostermiller AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Mon, 2 May 2016 10:36:07 -0400
The highlight of our quick walk in the Westfiled Center village park adjacent 
to our property was a Northern Waterthrush that perched on the edge of the 
woods, bobbed and sang several times before flying back down to the ground. 
We've had enough rain that the woods here have many pools, good enough for a 
migration stop, apparently. I only wish it had been on our property, and we 
could add it as a yard bird! 


We also saw the first catbird we've seen in the park.

Yesterday afternoon on Wilderness Road (Wayne County) we could scope about 50 
American Golden Plover and 7 Caspian Terns, north of the road, 2 Black-necked 
Stilts south of Valley Oaks Farm along with a number of Lesser Yellowlegs, 
Spotted Sandpipers and a variety of dabbling ducks. Township Road 1950 hosted 
over 75 Lesser Yellowlegs, several Greater Yellowlegs, a few Dunlin and Spotted 
Sandpipers.

Good morning,

Sorry for the late report. There was a Red-Necked Grebe in a small pond just 
south of Middleburg, Ohio (about 15 minutes from Bellefontaine) in Logan County 
yesterday evening at 8pm. The eBird checklist below has a photo and exact 
location of the bird.

The Western Tanager was seen at the original location around 6:20 pm on Sunday, 
May 1st. Several patient and persistent birders visited with many kind and 
curious neighbors for about two and a half hours before being rewarded with a 
few minutes of great looks and photo opportunities as the tanager foraged on 
the ground below the suet feeder.

We had a good day birding at Gallagher Fen Nature Preserve this morning.
This preserve is on Old Columbus Road near Buck Creek State Park. We found
14 species of warblers there including about 4 Blue-winged Warblers which
are not nesting birds here. We also heard a couple Ovenbirds and had lots of
Yellow-rumped Warblers. We also had 5 species of vireos. Then at Buck Creek
State Park on the beach we had 2 Caspian Terns and 2 Common Terns. Then we
found a female Blue Grosbeak near the bathhouse. We moved to the Prairie
View parking lot and walked to the Crabill House. We added two more
warblers, Yellow-throated Warblers and a chat for 16 species overall. Then a
Sandhill Crane flew over us while calling which seems really late for one
here. We ended up with 89 species by 12:30 PM.

Subject: Dublin,5-01:migrant fallout
From: rob thorn <robthorn AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Sun, 1 May 2016 21:39:47 -0400
I stopped at several parks in this NW Columbus suburb this morning, looking for 
patches of migrants. Because of the attractiveness of leafing oaks for many of 
these insect-eaters, I stopped at Sawmill Wetlands and was rewarded with a good 
fallout. Nearby Kiwanis Riverside Park also had migrants, but in smaller 
numbers. West of Kiwanis, the isolated oak grove at Heather Glen Park also had 
a good crop of migrants, so oaks really are the current magnet for many of 
these Birds. Notables this morning included: 


Crested Flycatchers - birds at all 3 locations
Blue-headed Vireos - 2 at Sawmill, 1 at Kiwanis, 3 at Heather Glen
Warbling Vireo - birds at all 3 sites
Red-eyed Vireo - 1 singing at Heather Glen
House Wrens - singers at all 3 sites, though Kiwanis had 4+
Gnatcatchers - common at all 3 sites, with 4-5 birds at each.
Ruby-cr.Kinglets - 2-3 at all 3 sites
Hermit Thrush - 1 still hanging out at Heather Glen
Gray Catbirds - 2-3 at each of the 3 sites
Blue-winged Warbler - 1 at Sawmill
Yellow Warblers - all 3 sites, but Kiwanis had 3-4 while the other sites had 1 
each 

Nashville Warbler - 2-3 at Sawmill & Kiwanis, 5 at Heather Glen
Tennessee - 1 singing at Sawmill
Chesnut-sided - 2 at Sawmill, 1 at Heather Glen
Blackburnian - 1 at Sawmill, 2 at Heather Glen
Black-thr.Green - 2 at Sawmill, 4 at Heather Glen
Yellow-throated - 2 at Kiwanis (the only riparian site)
Yellow-rumped - most common at all 3 sites; Sawmill had 15+
Palm - present at all 3 sites; Sawmill had 4, the other sites 1 each
Black&White - 2 at Sawmill and at Heather Glen
Redstart - 1 at Heather Glen
Hooded Warbler - 1 at Heather Glen
Ovenbirds - all 3 sites, but Heather Glen had 2.
ComYellowthroat - 1 at Sawmill, 2 at Kiwanis
Scarlet Tanager - 1 at Sawmill
Rose-br.Grosbeak - single males at both Sawmill and Heather Glen
Swamp Sparrows - 2 were at Kiwanis
White-throated Sparrows - small flocks were at all 3 sites
Baltimore Orioles - 1-2 were at every site
Orchard Orioles - 1 1st-year male and a female were at Kiwanis

All of these totals were from stops of only 30 minutes at each spot. In the 
forest patches at Sawmill & Heather Glen, you could hear lots of singing 
warblers as you approached the leafing-out oak trees. If you have any 
oak-dominated forests nearby, you might want to check them over the upcoming 
week.

For several days, a Golden-winged Warbler has been in the vicinity of the 
Natural Play Area in Sharon Woods MP. A Lawrence's Warbler was found in the 
same area yesterday morning and seen again at 8:30 this morning, very briefly. 
The Golden-winged Warbler had moved and was found at 11:00 today further west 
along the meadow and along the Coyote Trail. It was very actively feeding and 
roaming, taking quite a bit of patience to see. Numerous other warblers were 
present including a Cerulean. Other notables: Lincoln's Sparrow, White-crowned 
Sparrows, Orchard and Baltimore Orioles, Scarlet Tanagers, and a Black-billed 
Cuckoo.

We had a male singing Golden-winged Warbler on Big Bailey Run Road this morning 
at ~9 AM. It was 0.6 miles from the intersection of Big Bailey Run Road with 
Hwy 13 just north of Chauncey, at the second pull-off by the creek (before the 
pond). We stopped again ~10:30 AM on our way back and did not hear it again, 
but it is likely to be around for today at least since there is good habitat. 
In the same spot we also had Cerulean, Tennessee, Nashville, and numerous other 
"expected" vireos, orioles, and warblers.

Hi,

Rain and fog kept me out of the field this morning and I was rewarded with
my first of season Indigo Bunny, on the front feeder.  I have never had
this species on a feeder but have had them in the yard here on Gildersleeve
Mountain.  I guess it is time to get the Hummingbird feeder up as well as
there are reports of them showing up just to the south.

Just had a Blue-winged Warbler in Huntington Reservation, just south east
of the "sledding hill" in the brushy area. Many other warblers including
Palm, Yellow, Myrtle and Louisiana Waterthrush. Birds are high in the trees.

The Western tanager was seen again today in Upper Sandusky. After
talking to the homeowners it has been there since Wednesday. The
homeowners are welcome to visitors. It is in a residential
neighborhood but there is very little traffic. The bird comes to the
suet feeder in the front of the house. So far, every time it comes
from over the roof. It has been on the porch and in the landscaping
also. Lots of pictures were taken by several folks. It is an adult
male in breeding plumage. Beautiful bird! There is plenty of food and
cover. I think the bird will stay until the winds are right for moving
on.  In a cool aside, Tom Bartlett banded a Red-headed woodpecker,
Downy woodpecker, Red-bellied woodpecker, and Yellow bellied sapsucker
all in the same round today. It was a cool picture.Good luck to
everyone enjoying migration.

Subject: GroveCity-to-BattelleDarby,4-30: siskin, migrants
From: rob thorn <robthorn AT EARTHLINK.NET>

I visited several isolated parks in this south Columbus suburb, mostly to check 
small oak forests, since oaks are blooming & leafing out, making them 
attractive to migrant insectivores. Sure enough, several of these parks had 
small flocks of warblers, gnatcatchers, vireos, and kinglets, though they 
usually didn't have a great variety of warblers. I finished at the Terrace 
Trail at Battelle Darby MetroPark, probably the largest forest block along this 
stretch of the Darby Creeks. It was hopping, but the drizzle started to 
suppress that around 11:30. Notables from all sites included: 


Cooper's Hawk - one was nest-building at Henceroth Park, while another was 
display flying at Indian Run Park/Grant Run greenbelt. 

Crested Flycatchers - single birds were at Terrace Trail and Henceroth Park 
(2nd day I've seen them) 

E.Kingbird - 1 around the edge of Fryar Park
Vireos - Blue-headed and Yellow-throated at several spots; these plus Red-eyed 
and Warbling were at Terrace Trail. 

Gnatcatchers - still one of the most common migrants; Terrace Trail had 15
Kinglets - Ruby-crowns at every site, but no large #s
Thrushes - Wood Thrushes were at Fryar and at the Terrace Trail (which had 3-4)
Mimids - Catbirds were common at every site
Warblers - mostly Yellow-rumpeds, but had Palms, Nashvilles, and Common 
Yellowthroats at most sites. Yellows, Black-throated Greens, Parulas, Ovenbird, 
and Hooded were along the Terrace Trail, while a Tennessee was at Henceroth. 

Rose-brGrosbeaks - 2 were singing along the Terrace Trail
Sparrows - plenty of Song, Field, and Chipping, as well as small flocks of 
White=throated at many locations. 

Pine Siskin - 1 bird was hanging out with a small flock of Goldfinches at the 
Grant Run greenbelt (Indian Run Park) in Grove City.

Hey everyone,

Has anyone seen the Tanager since the rain started?  Was thinking about
heading up there.

Thanks,

Steve J.
