Subject: Barn Nesting Birds in Geauga County
Date: Wed Apr 23 2014 19:09 pm
From: mmvalencic AT roadrunner.com
 
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!

Subject: Warblers in Northfield, Ohio
Date: Wed Apr 23 2014 12:43 pm
From: ken.hikes AT hotmail.com
 
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.

Subject: Lake County Nesting Osprey
Date: Wed Apr 23 2014 11:46 am
From: danook057 AT yahoo.com
 
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...
Date: Wed Apr 23 2014 6:36 am
From: jcefus AT gmail.com
 
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!

Subject: OOS Conference - detour from SW Ohio
Date: Tue Apr 22 2014 22:59 pm
From: nedkeller49 AT gmail.com
 
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.minYA.35034525823749&env.maxX=-81.43463497441405&env.maxYA.63938548559886&zh=true&gpúlse&ev=Z&mr=112&bmo=1emo&yr=al&byr00&eyr 14

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.

From: spencerryan AT windstream.net
 
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.

From: cbombaci AT att.net
 
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.

Subject: Black-Throated Green Warbler in South Chagrin
Date: Mon Apr 21 2014 11:44 am
From: ken.hikes AT hotmail.com
 
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,

After hearing a Yellow-throated Warbler in Springfield, I knew I heard them
here in LaRue. So I traveled along the Scioto River to try and find one.
I found two, one heard and one seen.
Pics of the warblers from my last two days here:

And as soon as I get a YB Chat, my Ohio Warbler pictures should be nearly
complete...I need a few better looking pictures, but they are almost done.
:-D YAY!

Anyhew...Tomorrow, the wife gets a Surf Scoter...and hopefully some
shorebirds.

Happy Birding, and God Bless.

Subject: Possible Brewer's Blackbird, Lake County 4/20
Date: Sun Apr 20 2014 19:09 pm
From: colefor3 AT gmail.com
 
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.

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-

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

confusion.

Subject: Pick ponds Sandhill
Date: Sat Apr 19 2014 20:39 pm
From: nharrierpw AT aol.com
 
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.
