Follow up to Bill's post ..


I am able to ... usually , see at least a few evenings of Nighthawks
from my front yard. Zanesville area - north end. I've casually tracked
dates for a few years.

So far this year I had zero, until yesterday. In a period of no more
than 10 minutes I had 100+. Started around 7:30 pm. There was a large
flock just at the North edge of my viewing and within a minute they
seemed to be coming primarily from the south as well as west and seemed
to form one huge south east movement. I'm west of the Muskingum river
corridor and would not doubt that they move there and follow it, though
I have never observed them there.

Historically I usually see movement from the West heading South East.

I'm guessing the spend their days in various trees or tops of graveled
buildings and arise at similar times. I'm fairly close to several
typical box stores , malls and their roof tops. At least one pair has
been reported on the nearby mall this summer, nesting was reported one
building a few years ago.


For me - - this is a little later than previous prime times by a
week or so.

We are not seeing, or at least not reporting, many remarkable fallmigrants, judging by contributions to this list. To learn that 68+people have trudged the same path to see the same piping plover tells usa lot less about birds than about birders, for example. We're only atthe edge of migration, and one can hope that healthy numbers of birdsmoving south will be reported. Barring some catastrophe, far morewarblers pass through in spring than in fall, let's not forget. The ABA's Birding News web site has a feature at the top of its page--http://birding.aba.org/search.... --and I used it to discoverrecent reports of nighthawks. There were 568 posts reporting commonnighthawks--and some lessers--in the ABA reporting area. Some reportsestimated flyover flocks of 10 thousand or more. One report, not thelargest, gave 9490 birds seen yesterday over 20 minutes from anobserver's front yard in Minnesota's Lake County. As far as we know, migrating nighthawks often clump into foraginggroups on migration to South America. Those that move during the day mayfly high enough that they aren't seen or reported; this is the case fornearly all of the northbound birds in the spring. Most of those we seefrom the ground are the larger low-altitude early-evening flocks as theyfeed on insects along their way in autumn; nighthawks sleep by night, ofcourse. Large numbers of migrants are seen along the GreatLakes--apparently, not so much on Lake Erie, as its shore extendseast/west--where large numbers of observers in Michigan, Wisconsin, andMinnesota see birds in fall. In Ohio, bodies of water orientednorth/south, like many of our rivers and reservoirs, may invite moremodest flocks. Here in Columbus, for example, many of our big fallrecords come from the OSU campus, where there are lots ofobservers--attentive or not--and some tracts of open area with flyinginsects, along the Olentangy flight path. Oddly enough, a goodly numberof the biggest ones have occurred on September 3... That said, we haven't been seeing them in numbers such as we've seen inrecent years, at least according to reports. I myself am not seeing theflocks of hundreds of migrants that at times induced me to climb ontothe roof of my house, or walk over to the schoolyard, to count them. Icertainly am not seeing any good numbers on this list, either. Come tothink of it, I don't see as many flying insects as I used to, and thenumber of nesting birds in the neighborhood seems way down, as I supposeit may be in other metropolitan areas. Anyway, I hope it is just fewer urban insects. Heaven knows we havemore observers, and more ways of discovering what they're seeing.Folks who want to see gatherings of insects can find them in many nearbyplaces, but I hope the diminution of nighthawks seen here is just a lackof food rather than of birds to chase it.Bill WhanColumbus______________________________________________________________________Ohio-birds mailing list, a service of the Ohio Ornithological Society.Please consider joining our Society, at www.ohiobirds.org/site/membership.php.Our thanks to Miami University for hosting this mailing list.You can join or leave the list, or change your options, at:listserv.miamioh.edu/scripts/wa.exe?LIST=OHIO-BIRDSSend questions or comments about the list to: listowner@ohiobirds.org

Black Bellied Plover continuing at LaDue Reservoir.  It was observed until
7:30 pm this evening. The bird was seen on the small island to the north
of the boat ramp.

Happy Birding

Yes, I am shamelessly promoting Geauga County as a birding destination in NE
Ohio. As reported earlier by Inga Schmidt, today a Baird's Sandpiper and a
Black-bellied Plover were seen at LaDue Reservoir in the area near the
boathouse islands and nearby shorelines. Here are a few pictures from LaDue
Reservoir, Orchard Hills Park and West Geauga Commons

Subject: 13 Buff-breasted Sandpipers / Wayne Co
Date: Sun Aug 30 2015 21:18 pm
From: ohiomagpie AT hotmail.com
 
Jeff Harvey, my wife Denise, and myself, arrived at The Wilderness Road site at 6PM today, Sunday. Only two other birders besides us were there, with a third arriving after us. Upon our arrival, we immediately found 8 Buff-breasted Sandpipers scattered along the west side of the impoundment. About ten minutes later, 5 more came flying in bringing the total visible to 13. This is the highest count I have ever had anywhere, with my previous best total being 11, at the west side of the SR225 Bridge at Berlin Reservoir in Stark County, on 9/07/08. We located the previously reported Red-necked Phalarope down the channel along the east side of the east access road. About 6:30PM, an ultra-light aircraft came along flying low causing all the shorebirds to go airborne. What a sight, they appeared to be in the hundreds. Fortunately when the birds settled back down, the Red-necked Phalarope was right in front of us near the second green pump. Some of the other highlights of 16 species of shorebirds were: 1 American Golden-Plover, 7 Short-billed Dowitchers, 3 Baird's Sandpipers, 20+ Pectoral Sandpipers, 1 Wilson's Snipe, and a single American Pipit. Numerous Mourning Doves were present and many more were arriving. The sky had an eerie look upon our departure at 7:30PM, and a spooky looking full moon showed us the direction home.

Subject: urbanScioto,Columbus,8-30: warblers, orioles
Date: Sun Aug 30 2015 17:04 pm
From: robthorn AT earthlink.net
 
I checked out several areas along the Scioto River near Columbus this morning, starting at Scioto Audubon and working my way upriver to Marble Cliff & Griggs Dam.  Despite the overnight rain, migrants were thin, and it took much effort to find them (except for the orioles).  Birders looking to get to the Shrum Mound Quarry should be aware that the 5th Ave bridge over the Scioto is torn down for repairs, and you'll need to detour by way of Trabue and McKinley.  Notables included:

Herons - Great Blues were at normal #s, and were joined by 2 great Egrets (Scioto Aud) and 1 Green Heron (Marble Cliff)
Osprey - 1 adult was still hanging around Scioto
Vultures - the Turkey Vulture flock at Griggs has 40+ birds in it, but no Black Vultures
Gulls and Terns - startlingly scarce, with only 5 Ring-billed Gulls seen all morning
Flycatchers - Pewees still widespread, but also had Acadian (Griggs), Willow (Scioto Aud), and Phoebe
Swallows - very few other than some flocks of Barn Swallows around the Scioto Audubon fields, perhaps 35-40 birds.
Vireos - singing Warbling at several locations, along with Red-eyed at Marble Cliff & Griggs
Gnatcatchers - 2 birds were at Scioto Audubon, while another 2 were at Griggs
Warblers - hard to find, but did scrounge up Tennessees, Chesnut-sided, Blackburnians, Yellow-throated, Bay-breasted (FOS-Griggs), AmericanRedstarts, and N.Waterthrush (Marble Cliff)
Orioles - Baltimores at many locations, often singing, Griggs had at least 3. This may be their migration peak.

Date: Sun Aug 30 2015 16:24 pm
From: ingais AT earthlink.net
 
A surprisingly good afternoon at LaDue Reservoir.  First Wes Hatch 
found one Bairdís Sandpiper right near the boat launch area, and then we
noticed two ruddy turnstones along the shore edge. Both in nonbreeding
plumage so we have a total of at least three at LaDue in the last week.

Then, not visible from the parking lot, walking in along the shore line
Wes saw a breeding plumage black belllied plover. Just beautiful!

Otherwise, of note semipalmated plovers, least and semi palm sandpipers, solitary and
spotted sandpipers. Oh, and a couple of common terns.

Subject: DarbyCreek,8-29: flycatchers,warblers,BlueGrosbeak
Date: Sat Aug 29 2015 20:30 pm
From: robthorn AT earthlink.net
 
I made stops at several migrant traps along Big Darby Creek west of Columbus, including Darby Bend Lakes, Kuhlwein Wetlands, Trail of the Ancients, and Grassle Rd. access.  For 3 hours, migrant numbers were spotty, with no one group or species standing out.  Notables included:

Sora - one was calling from the tiny wetland near the bridge at Darby Bend lakes

Red-headed Woodpecker - an adult persists in the dead trees along the River Rock Trail at Darby Bend Lakes

Flycatchers : Pewees widespread, but also had Phoebe, Acadian, GreatCrested (4), and 2 late E.Kingbirds (Darby Bend Lakes, Grassle Rd)

Swallows - hardly any, with only a smattering of Barn Swallows. 15 at Kuhlwein was the high, so you know it was slow.

Vireos - single Warbling (Darby Bend Lakes), White-eyed (TrAncients), and Red-eyed (Grassle)

Thrushes - nothing other than some Robins & E.Bluebirds

Cedar Waxwings - flocks at every stop; Darby Bend Lakes had 60+

Warblers - not many, but the list did include Yellow, Parula, Tennessee, Chaesnut-sided, Yellow-throated, Black&White, Blackpoll, and ComYellowthroat. Yellowthroats were easily the most common.

BlueGrosbeak - a singing male was near the Kuhlwein parking lot, around where one has been seen off-and-on all summer

Icterids - small flocks of Redwings at several spots, as well as a bigger flock of grackles (100+) on Trail of Ancients. A Baltimore Oriole male was still hanging around Darby Bend Lakes.

Buff-breasted Sandpiper is still present at dusk on Conneaut Sandspit. It was reported earlier by Tyler McClain on Ohio Rare Bird Alert Facebook page.†

Not many other shorebirds were present. Many gulls in harbor. Few Caspian Terns flew overhead.

Gate is now unlocked and open to vehicles.†

Late arrival of Black-crowned Night-Heron to breakwall as I departed.†

1 single black bellied plover at Magee.  Drive straight back    As the road turns left park by the road closest to the shed and a green open sumpter  and look south of the road in a wet patch.    Was there with a pectoral at 12:30 pm Saturday about half way back in the open.  
White eyed vireo seen on the boardwalk. Was pretty dead besides common stuff. Didn't spend much time though.

At Ladue Reservoir this evening, I found a ruddy turnstone on the sandpit again.
There has been one there for several days. Interestingly, it wasnít the same bird.
The first one seen there was in breeding plumage. This one looked to be an adult
bird in nonbreeding plumage.

Otherwise, a small assortment of peeps, one Greater Yellowlegs and the usual killdeer.

We found a Buff-breasted Sandpiper on the beach at Buck Creek State Park
this morning. It was a beautiful juvenile. There were also about 100
Killdeer and two Least Sandpipers. There are about 200 Ring-billed Gulls and
about six Herring Gulls on the beach now. Tomorrow they are having a race
there in the morning and I don't know if you will even be able to get to the

Subject: Ultimate Yard Birds / Ten Year Anniversary
Date: Fri Aug 28 2015 7:39 am
From: ohiomagpie AT hotmail.com
 
The dream of every avid birder is to have an out of the ordinary bird show up in your own backyard. Ten years ago today, we did. It is hard to believe that it has been a decade since my wife came to the house on the morning of August 28, 2005, to get me, claiming to have two Black-billed Magpies in the backyard, and she did!!! Over the next forty-seven days the pair of western celebrities could sometimes be found roaming the environs of our hometown of Damascus on the Mahoning-Columbiana County line. By the last day of the magpies visit on October 14th, over 140 birders, some from as far away as Ontario, had succeeded in adding Black-billed Magpie to their Ohio Life List. Icing on the cake was The Ohio Birds Record Committee in March 2006 accepted the magpies, constituting the 4th Ohio record. This experience was an interesting chapter in our lives. It gave us an identity. An e-mail address was created, (ohiomagpie@hotmail.com), a vanity plate (2MAGPIE) was now on one of our vehicles, and we were dubbed the Magpie People. As diehard birders, this was our once in-a-lifetime spot in the limelight, right in our backyard, our moment of birding glory! The changes that have taken place in reporting rare bird sightings in the past ten years is unbelievable. There were no smart phones or computers to send messages from the field. You had to get to a phone and call someone, hoping they could relay your find to others, again by phone. If a person could get access to a computer, about the only site was birdingonthe.netohio, and even if it was posted, someone had to see it, then again somehow relay the sighting information. There were some phone hotlines, updated occasionally, but again, access in the field was not readily available. Today's birders, including us, have almost instant access to knowing where the rarities are. It is hard to imagine the way birding has changed in the past ten years.

Just to report that the Buff-breasted Sandpiper continues at Wilderness Rd (Wayne) this afternoon - I left it about 3:45 PM.
A few other shorebirds including Lesser Yellowlegs, Least and Baird's Sandpipers, Pectoral Sandpiper, Semipalmated Plover, Killdeer.  But much fewer birds than yesterday.  I was told that the wet area the phalaropes were frequenting out near the bare "eagle tree" has dried up, so I didn't walk out there today.  I only spent about a half hour, mostly watching the Buffy, so didn't make a thorough survey of all the birds.
All for now,Carlton SchooleyStrasburg (Tuscarawas)

  Lake Hope State Park & Zaleski State Forest are located 15 miles from
Nelsonville (Rte 33) off of Rte Rte 278. Below is a list of some of the
Birds seen Tues (Aug 25th)

I arrived at 5:55 am & the Whip-poor-will started singing as it was
circling its territory. I heard another far away

I explored a Shelter Woods & a Clear Cut along a ridge. I came across 2
different flocks of Warblers, Vireos, & Songbirds. I watched a flock of 8
Warblers & 2 Vireos for 30 minutes. They left & returned. I watched them
for another 30 minutes. I then came across another flock. I was getting
great & multiple looks. I then saw a Red-shouldered Hawk circling. The bird
then started flying toward me. It then pulled in its wings & dove into the
woods. The birds disappeared!

Some of the other birds present as of 12:15PM are Short-billed Dowitcher, Sanderling,  Semipalmated Plover, Caspian Tern, Bald Eagle, and a marauding Peregrine Falcon.

Subject: Buff-breasted and golden plover at Wilderness Rd - Wayne Co.
Date: Thu Aug 27 2015 10:34 am
From: rowe926 AT gmail.com
 
Just returned from Wilderness Rd birding from 9-10:30am. There were 8-10
birders out at the peat pits checking out the shorebirds.

The buff-breasted sandpiper was further down towards the largest pond there
in excellent light. I was just west of the pond in the wet dirt. There was
also one Am. golden plover in that area. Two Baird's sandpipers were in the
ditch on the east side of the road along with some least sandpipers. They
were only 30-40ft away, also in excellent light. Great views of those at
close range!

There were 7 other species for a total of 10 species of shorebirds.
Unfortunately this area is drying up quite a lot and the total shorebird
numbers are fairly low now. We need some rain! Randy Rowe, Wooster

Hello All,

I will be in the Mentor area Friday evening for a wedding and am looking for
areas I could bird on Saturday morning for a few hours before heading home
to the Pittsburgh area. I would appreciate your suggestions!

Thank you,

Subject: Villa Angela/Wildwood Parks Cleveland 8/26/15 warblers
Date: Wed Aug 26 2015 19:10 pm

 I returned to Villa Angela/Wildwood Parks (part of Euclid Creek Reservation) on Lakeshore Blvd & E. 174th St on Lake Erie today from 2pm to 5pm.  I found a few warblers and then at 3:40pm it started to rain and after the rain stopped around 4:15pm all of a sudden I realized there were many warblers/vireos very high up in the trees in the Wildwood woods darting back and forth and moving through the trees as I was standing near the part of Euclid Creek where you can see the marina parking lot in the overgrown area.  Many birds I could not see to ID as the creek area is much lower than the woods.  I went back to Villa Angela but most of the activity seemed to have been around Wildwood and the creek at that time.
Here are some of the birds I was able to see:  Wildwood: 2 Mourning Warblers (male with black bib) and female (seen separately at different times same general area) 1 Common Yellowthroat, 1 Magnolia Warbler, 3 American Redstarts, 1 Blackburnian Warbler, 2 Yellow Warblers, 1 first summer Green Heron, many Chimney Swifts, 2 Warbling Vireos, 2 Red-eyed Vireos,  1 Baltimore Oriole.  (The female Mourning Warbler had a split eye-ring and Peterson's warbler book said fall females tend to have whitish eye-arcs)
In Villa Angela: 3 Caspian Terns on beach, 1 American Redstart, 1 Wood Thrush, 1 Canada Warbler (visible high up trees on first path as you walk in from road to go to field)
Many American Robins, Gray Catbirds, few Northern Flickers.

Ned DeLamatre reports an Anhinga 
In flight (soaring) yesterday over the area around Wadsworth football stadium. His description is solid-- he's well aware of the similarity to Double-crested Cormorant in flight.
