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.

singing away on the west side of the trail right at the bench. If you have
never been there it's exceedingly pretty right now...all the Prarie flowers

Larry Richardson and Don Keffer currently (11:30 am, 7/25) have 3
Black-bellied Whistling Ducks at the Norton Lane Ponds in Grand River
Wildlife Area, Trumbull County. This site is at the dead end of Norton Lane
which runs west off SR 45 a mile or so south of SR 87. The ducks are
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
Date: Thu Jul 24 2014 20:55 pm
From: ohiomagpie AT hotmail.com
 
Thanks once again to Alice Van Zoeren, of The Great Lakes Piping Plover Banding Program (plover@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.

Subject: Cowan Lake and Caesar Creek
Date: Thu Jul 24 2014 15:37 pm
From: rdp1710 AT gmail.com
 
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

The storm pretty much cleared out 2/3rd of the birds but Don Keffer, Lee
Reed & Christopher Collins enjoyed Both Dowitchers, Stilt, Red Neck
Phalarope and I don't know what peeps as I had to go but- They were
gracious to call me back for the coveted Black Tern -but I missed it!

The Cattle Egret was still at Breakers Express on Cedar pt rd field as of
930 this morning.

Look out southern Ohio the Shorebirds are on their way I had a Great Egret
leaving Summit county and saw a White Pelly flying over Sandusky Bay!

From: ingais AT earthlink.net
 
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,

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.

These Black Rails have apparently not taken the time to read the field guides for where they are supposed to be nesting. On top of a hill in a high and dry agricultural field may need to be added as an updated nest site
description. The site location is now justifiably closed to all visitation.

This is so cool and it would seem their celebrity did not disrupt their
nesting activity. During our visit I suspected there were 3 or 4
individuals present.

Subject: Today's Conneaut Piping Plover
Date: Wed Jul 23 2014 18:21 pm
From: ohiomagpie AT hotmail.com
 
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/... 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).

Hello all,
There were at least five and as many as seven EUCO doves all within about 500 yards of the corner of Mill and Market streets in Celina today. Check on the wires and on the spilled corn around the grain elevator.
Cheers,

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.

Date: Sun Jul 20 2014 17:41 pm
From: colefor3 AT gmail.com
 
Tom Frankel, Jim McConnor and I birded west OH today, which included
Lorain, Erie, and Ottawa. Our target birds for the day were Lark Sparrows,
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

(which IS private according to the county auditor's website).

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

#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
Date: Fri Jul 18 2014 22:25 pm
From: mbshuter AT gmail.com
 
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
Date: Fri Jul 18 2014 19:26 pm
From: nharrierpw AT aol.com
 
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.

I stopped by these 2 MetroParks south of Groveport, mostly to check out their wetlands and field areas.  Walnut Woods has opened the Monarch Trail, a bikepath that winds by some of their new Big Run wetlands.  The pools looked pretty high & overgrown, but could be good shorebird habitat if they can dry down somewhat.  Slate Run Wetlands were mixed, with some full and others drying, but only Kildeer seemed to have discovered them.  Highlights of the morning included:

Green Herons - at least 2 were calling from drying pools at Slate Run

Shorebirds - nothing but Kildeer, but they were fairly common in the drying pools at Slate Run

N.Bobwhite - one of the introduced quail was calling around the Slate Run wetlands

Yellow-billed Cuckoos - at least 2 were singing along the Tall Pines loop at Walnut Woods

E.Kingbirds - family groups were at both wetlands areas

Vireos - Red-eyed & White-eyed were at the Tall Pines area of Walnut Woods

Swallows - Walnut Woods had small groups of Barn, Rough-winged & Tree, while the Slate Run wetlands had all the common species, including 6 Purple Martins, 1 Cliff, and 8-10 Banks.

Brown Thrashers - at least 2 were around the shrubby edges of the Tall Pines area at Walnut Woods

Common Yellowthroats - truly common, with 16+ at Walnut Woods and another 10+ at Slate Run wetlands

Grasshopper Sparrows - at least 2 were singing in the grasslands around the Big Run wetlands at Walnut Woods

Baltimore Orioles - females were leading juveniles at both wetlands

Subject: Hocking River in Athens, SE Ohio
Date: Wed Jul 16 2014 12:59 pm
From: stefan AT gleissberg.org
 
Two hours of birding along the Hocking River around Athens this morning produced 33 species. Highlights included 19 Black Vultures soaring plus one Red-tailed Hawk, Great Blue Herons and one Green Heron foraging along the river banks, 2 Spotted Sandpipers (one in breeding and the other in nonbreeding plumage) along with several Killdeer (and a possible Yellowleg), many Barn Swallows feeding young, a pair of Chipping Sparrow feeding a Brown-Headed Cowbird fledgling on the golf course, and a female American Redstart near Morris Avenue. 

As of non-birds, a giant Regal Moth at the Peden Stadium, and two Red Foxes near the golf course that were raising some concern among nearby Canada Geese.

Best summer birding wishes,

Things are definitely quieter the last couple times I've birded Clear Creek but still quite enjoyable, partic the cool, fall-like morning today.

A surprise this AM was a Magnolia Warbler on the Hemlock Trail. Hooded Warblers were abundant, singing & calling. I had a couple Black-thr Greens plus Ovenbirds. Heard B&W, Cerulean. Of course, lots of Com Yellowthroats.

Wood Thrushes seemed fewer but still singing. Have heard Veery a couple times but not today. White-eyed and Red-eyed Vireos. Acadian FC, E Peewee.

Good looks at Pileated WP. A bonus was a flyover Baltimore Oriole, just south of Lancaster.

On Saturday, I had 2 adult Bald Eagles over Rt 33 between Clr Crk and Lancaster.
