Subject: Request for Photos of the Dillion Res. Loon
Date: Wed Oct 29 2014 9:32 am
From: godwit AT sbcglobal.net
 
The Ohio Bird Records Committee is soliciting the opinions of out-of-state field ornithologists concerning the ID of the Dillion Reservoir loon. We would like to have as many photographs as possible for them to inspect. We particularly need photos of the bird in flight, but any photograph is welcome. Links to photo-sharing sites such as Flickr are probably the easiest way to share photos, but we can make other arrangements to get them as necessary.

This mailing list does not accept attachments, so please don't don't try getting them to me that way. If you have only one or two photos, you may be able to email them to me as attachments to my OBRC email account: psg0708@gmail.com. However, there is a limit on the size of attachments, which I think is about 5 mb. You can hit that quickly with photos. If you send me anything, and you do not get a reply from me, you can assume it didn't make it to me.

Thanks in advance for any help with this intriguing sighting.

Subject: Alum Creek -- 6 gull species!
Date: Tue Oct 28 2014 20:02 pm
From: paul.j.hurtado AT gmail.com
 
1 Laughing
3 Lesser Black-backed
4 Franklin's
500+ Bonaparte's (no Little or Black-headed... that I noticed)
60+ Herring
600+ Ring-billed

Leslie Sours and I had these birds on the lake out from the beach, and all
but the Laughing and Lesser BB on the beach, with all birds flying out to
the lake to roost just before we left around 7pm.

I recommend getting there before sun up tomorrow if you go after any of
these birds, and/or staying from 6ish through dusk (when they fly from the
beach or to the middle of the lake to roost) if you go on the evening.

It's also a big help to bring a scope, and/or a friend with a scope! ;-)

Good birding,
Paul Hurtado

Greetings!  As a followup to the post earlier:

Gene Stauffer and I saw 17 or so Franklin's Gulls, undoubtedly the ones
that Robert found, on the beach very near the building/restrooms. The coots
floated up a small inlet to the west of the dam so were not visible by the
time we left.

While searching for scoters, we found three flocks floating well offshore:
one flock appeared to hold about 25 Lesser Scaup, the others had smaller
numbers of...well...birds. Identification was impossible given the
distance, wind, and some heat shimmer over the water.

After looking over my photos with guidebooks at hand, it’s pretty clear the bird I saw this morning was not one of yesterday’s Black Scoters after all, but rather a female/immature Surf Scoter.  Sorry for the confusion.

Readers--
I've been asked to pass along a petition from another location along
Lake Erie, where birders are among those resisting the eradication of
another one of the Lake's remaining wilder habitats. If you think we
have built enough condo retreats and ritzy restaurants for yachtsmen at
the expense of public undeveloped space, you may want to add your voice
to those of the folks of Buffalo. We could be next...

Jerry Talkington and I spent the morning doing a lake watch from Sunset Park in Lake County. Viewing conditions were great. There were a bunch of Horned Grebes many of which were in the water , and a steady flow of Bonapartes Gulls. Common Loons were seen regularly.

From: cwinstead AT earthlink.net
 
At least one of the Black Scoters that Steve Landes and Dan Sanders reported yesterday was still here this morning, best viewed from the disc golf/boat launch area off Africa Road. It was hanging out with a raft of coots. At 11:36 it flew north out of sight but didn't seem to be leaving the reservoir.

Subject: Black Scoters at Alum Creek - Yes . . .
Date: Sun Oct 26 2014 23:09 pm
From: 00000025f179d3e1-dmarc-request AT listserv.miamioh.edu
 
Hello All... Earlier today Steve Landes found and reported 5 female/immature Black Scoters at Alum Creek Reservoir in Delaware County. Just to let everyone know that on our way back from Lake Erie, we stopped there at sunset and re-found these 5 Scoters on the water at some distance from the swimming beach, near the middle of the lake and somewhat to the North. Closer to the dam was a large raft of American Coots in a long line of maybe 150 or more birds. Slightly to the N of the Coots were 20 or so Ruddy Ducks and a few Mallards, and then the 5 scoters. During scope (required) looks, they took flight and flew toward the dam, then back North before landing in the same area where I originally found them. Fortunately, during this flight, they came even closer to us for better looks. I'd guess that they will still be there tomorrow morning, if any of you are able to try for them. This species is usually found on Lake Erie and so is a very good bird for
inland reservoirs and for Central Ohio.

Good Birding,
Dan Sanders

Subject: Deer Creek Oct. 26
Date: Sun Oct 26 2014 20:54 pm
From: rroyse AT sprynet.com
 
I checked out the Deer Creek area again today and there was a modest change over the past few days. With waterfowl hunting going on throughout the area, duck numbers were low. The reservoir held only a few each of Lesser Scaup, Ruddy Ducks, and Mallards. In the areas I could scope out I saw well over 50 Pied-billed Grebes and about 20 Horned Grebes. Bonaparte's Gulls have now taken over as the most abundant gull with hundreds present joining the usual Ring-billeds and Herrings. No Franklin's today that I could find. American Coots also numbered over 100. There is still an Osprey hanging around the reservoir.

In the upper reaches of the reservoir plenty of available mudflats hosted the usuals for the date : Lots and lots of Killdeers, both yellowlegs, Dunlins, Pectoral and Least Sandpipers, and a few Wilson's Snipes.

The Dick Road mudflats continue to host a large number of both yellowlegs. Still lingering with them today were 3 STILT SANDPIPERS, my personal record late date for them.

I found no significant large sparrow flocks in the northern part of the wildlife area this afternoon, but it was quite windy there then. The mother of all sparrow flocks continues in the smartweed jungle on the east side of the Middle Wetland tract. Walking through there any time of day is like walking through a weedy field but instead of flushing up grasshoppers, you flush up sparrows. The species list is almost exclusively Song, Swamp, Savannah, and White-crowned in there. There were far fewer Lincoln's in there today compared to a few days ago. Field Sparrows are still present in good numbers around the east edge but don't seem to venture into the smartweeds like those other species. There is still an abundance of food in there for the sparrows and I would expect this to be a sparrow hot spot all winter. They will surely be joined by Am. Tree Sparrows soon.

Subject: HooverDam,AlumCreekDam,10-26 - migrant turnover
Date: Sun Oct 26 2014 19:59 pm
From: robthorn AT earthlink.net
 
I spent a few free hours this morning at these two sites looking for migrant waterfowl, raptors, and lingering landbirds.  I was not able to find the Black Scoters found by Steve Landes at Alum creek, but did not do an exhaustive survey of the lower reservoir.  I focused on the dam & New Galena areas at Alum, and the dam area at Hoover, and had a mix of waterbirds & late landbirds.  Included among the totals were

Grebes - the flock of Horneds at alum Creek lake had swelled to 27 by 10:30. Lower Hoover had only 2 Pied-billed
Coots - the flock of 200 was still out in the middle of Alum Creek Lake above the dam
Ducks - hardly anything other than a few Mallards at either site (whic is expected at Alum, but Hoover isn't hunted)
Gulls - small #s of Bonaparte's at each site (15 at Alum, 6 at Hoover), along with the expected Ring-bills
Vultures - good numbers, with 85 at Hoover dam and another 25 at Alum Creek Lake dam, all Turkey Vultures
Blue Jays - still some movement, with 10 at Hoover Dam and 15 at Alum Creek Lake Dam
Kinglets - not many, with only a few of each species at both sites. Their peak appears to have passed here.
E.Bluebirds - flyovers at each site (2 at Hoover dam, 3 at New Galena); their numbers should pick up in the next 2 weeks
Warblers - all Yellow-rumps, and not many at each site (5 at Hoover, 4 at Alum)
Sparrows - flocks of White-throats at both sites. Hoover had 5 Chipping, while Alum had a Fox Sparrow at New Galena
Winter Finches - New Galena at Alum Lake had a Purple Finch, while Hoover dam had a flyover Pine Siskin

From: cbombaci AT att.net
 
A visit to Hoover Meadows this morning produced some nice early season surprises. Near the pines at the front area we located Red-breasted Nuthatch, Brown Creeper, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Yellow-rumped Warblers and a Pine Warbler. Near the second pond we had a Sharp-shinned Hawk working the field and in the brushy edges we located Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Eastern Bluebirds, Savannah Sparrow, Swamp Sparrows, White-throated Sparrows and a Fox Sparrow. Near the third pond we had a Red-shouldered Hawk, Swainson's Thrush, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Eastern Towhee, an American Tree Sparrow, Swamp Sparrows, White-throated Sparrows and Red-winged Blackbirds. While walking back to the parking area a flock of about 35 Sandhill Cranes did a flyover with a northeast heading (wrong direction guys). All told we had 37 species at this 91 acre section of the Hoover Nature Preserve. A pleasant day shared with a good friend.

From: ohiobirder AT columbus.rr.com
 
Took a trip to the Wilds today in Muskingum County, as well as surrounding AEP lands.  Highlights of the day were a single Snow bunting (these are uncommon there even later in the season) - this was a personal early record for me.   Also, 187 Ring-necked ducks in a large pond off of Zion Ridge Road.  Tons of turkey vultures, but no Golden eagle(s) yet, nor shrikes or Rough legged hawks.  Just one Harrier for the day.  Savannah sparrows were singing though which was nice.

Subject: Delaware Co Black Scoters, Nelsons Sparrow
Date: Sun Oct 26 2014 16:07 pm
From: ohiobirder103 AT gmail.com
 
 Hi all,

I found 5 Black Scoters at the south end of Alum Creek Reservoir at about 8am
this morning. Also present were over 200 American Coots, 25 Ruddy Ducks, 14
Horned Grebes, and a single Common Loon- along with the expected gulls and
landbirds. Keep in mind that waterfowl season has started- these birds were all
out in the middle of the lake, so a scope is necessary.
Also, one Nelson's Sparrow was still present just south of Leonardsburg Rd at
Delaware Wildlife Area- I have found at least one every time I've been there
since the beginning of October.
Good Birding,


Steve Landes

When I reported the Long-tailed Duck Friday as male, I sent it from my phone
while there, and was going by the amount of white on the head and crown as
shown in the limited field guides I had available at the time. I may have
relied too much on that feature and may have been mistaken.

Subject: My Backyard, NE Cuyahoga County 10/26/14 Purple Finch
Date: Sun Oct 26 2014 8:58 am
From: 0000000bf2aec77c-dmarc-request AT listserv.miamioh.edu
 
I came downstairs this morning  and looked out the backyard window and my eyes were a little blurry because I had been reading the Sunday paper.  But the shape of and stance of a bird on the birdbath on the ground didn't look right for a House Finch.  It's head was tall and erect.  I tried to reach for my binoculars or camera still in my bags and it flew off.  I left the room for a couple minutes and when I came back there on the ground under my black oil seed tube feeder was a female Purple Finch feeding.  I am lucky if I get one sighting a winter in my northeastern Cuyahoga county suburb.  It did stand on the stick/branch pile under the tree a few times and was on the taller tree branches looking around for awhile.  It left and came back twice.  Trying to do other things not sure if it will come back.  Seen from 8:45 to 9:10am.  Two purple finches in two days.

DCBC PROGRAMS FOR AUTUMN



October 27th: "Two Year Comparison of the Growth and Development of Tree
Swallow and Eastern Bluebird Using Photography and Weight Measurements",
Stephen Bischoff, Ohio Young Birder.

During 2014 Stephen monitored two nest box trails observing the growth
and feeding habits of Tree Swallows and Eastern Bluebirds. Hatchling weights
were recorded daily and photographed against a 1/8" x 1/8" grid. Hatchlings
were also photographed against growth charts created last year to determine
whether charts could be used to age birds. Game cameras were mounted on some
nest boxes to record the frequency of visits. The exponential growth
patterns recorded last year were identical this year and pattern appeared
the same for both first nestings and second nestings. In addition, the
growth charts developed last year appear to be an accurate way to age
hatchlings. Videos captured by game cameras indicate that the parents
increase the frequency of nest visits during the rapid growth period.

Stephen is a sixteen year old junior at Dublin Scioto High School. He
is actively involved in the Ohio Young Birders Club and also volunteers at
the Ohio Wildlife Center. Earlier this year he monitored two nest box
trails: a ten box trail at OCLC in Dublin and another 14 box trail at
Sawmill Wetlands.

Subject: KPWA&BIWA End of October Birding
Date: Sat Oct 25 2014 21:04 pm
From: sjlarue1 AT gmail.com
 
Greetings!

Below are summaries of my trip to Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area. My
surprises of the days were the Marbled Godwit at pond 27. I had seen it
last month...and it is STILL THERE! :-) And spotting an American Bittern
before it spotted me at pond 3...to far away for pictures though.
Disappointment...no loons yet. :-(
As far as conditions go, most ponds are showing a lot of uncovered
islands...or in pond 27's case, almost completely dry/muddy. There is a
lot of turnover in species going on. Shorebirds, though still present are
few unless we are talking about Killdeer. Ducks are starting to trickle
in. Coots are like their own little islands in places.

I also swung by Big Island...lots of hunting going on there all over the
place...wear orange...The ponds along LaRue Prospect are holding a little
of everything...except Coots and Pied-billed Grebes...LOTS of those. :-)
Shorebirds are still present in the East pond of the three ponds. Along
with a few ducks. The middle pond held all the Coots and Grebes. The west
pond was lacking in visible activity...but there was a lot of hunting going
on in there.

Just realized...we are less that a month away from Short-eared Owls!
Yay!..I usually will see them at Big Island around Thanksgiving.

If you are looking for some fun activities to do in the upcoming months,
the Birding Ohio Scavenger Hunt "Calender" is still in my Dropbox. It has
been suggested that if you are a part time birder...meaning you still have
a full time job, that maybe 60-70 is a good number to shoot for. The kids
will be going for the top 50 for Marion County...
Anyhew, you can download it below. Enjoy!:

Happy Birding and God Bless!

From: paul.j.hurtado AT gmail.com
 
So who went where looking for the Arctic Loon today? Negative reports are
very welcome!

I might try heading that way tomorrow and if it's still in the state it
might take some concerted efforts to cover as many of the lakes and rivers
as possible to refind it.

Anyone else looking for it tomorrow?

Good birding,

Subject: Wildwood Park Cleveland 10/25 Purple Finch
Date: Sat Oct 25 2014 19:19 pm
From: 0000000bf2aec77c-dmarc-request AT listserv.miamioh.edu
 
I went to Villa Angela/Wildwood Park (Euclid Creek Reserv) on the east side of Cleveland at the end of yesterday and today.  Today was very unimpressive more so than yesterday and I was there from 1 to 4pm.  As I was going back to my car parked near Lakeshore Blvd I was in Villa Angela near the entrance to the park and decided one last try to go look near Euclid Creek so I crossed the road into Wildwood and immediately noticed three small finches flying from the trees along the creek.  They disappeared as the pine trees down from the parking lot blocked my view.  As I walked a little I noticed there was one leafless deciduous tree between and down from the multiple pine trees near the parking lot that had a female Purple Finch in the top of it.  I don't know if this was one of the three that I never did see very well - but it stayed around for seven minutes and had no friends at that point.  It did not have a melodius call.  It had a short "Cherie or
cherio" call then a quick sqeak of a pik sound and it made these sounds repeatedly. Then it flew to a tree closer to the creek for a minute then flew south. I don't normally see Purple Finches at this park.

Also, I could not find any scoters at Sims Park today but many many more Horned Grebes (at least 180) and at least two Common Loons. They seemed to be feeding in schools of fish mixed in with a few Red-breasted Mergansers and many Bonaparte's Gulls feeding in the frenzy.

The bird was not in breeding plumage, and it was far out on the lake.  A scope is required.  It has flown around a few times and we lost it.  Best vantage point was from the West Bank.
Cheers,
Troy

All,

Two Le Conte's together along a mixed margin of short weels, ankle
length sedge type grasses and along one of the mowed areas. Typically
avoids high stuff and when one flies usually seeks a low point (where
it may work inconspicuously higher). Often dips in near base of low
shrubs. By scanning the base of a shrub it can often be found sitting
near base, an inch or two off ground. There may be several here (it
would take teams of people to work it thoroughly) and they could be
anywhere. Nelson's prefer the tall cattails/grasses (it was in the
cattails along the path toward Teal). When the WP trail divids (left
to Teal, right to Harrier), we went NE through tall reeds and shrubs
into areas where the grass is varied, short, with multiple margins.
This is where we found the LESP.

If anyone is birding open water in southeast Ohio today, please try and
post your birding plans and what you find!

Some coordinated coverage of the lakes and rivers south and east of Dillon
Lake (maybe nearby lakes like Buckeye Lake as well?) might relocate this
excellent bird!

Just wanted to thank Anthony Fry, Scott Albaugh, and James Gore for the original post of the presence of the Arctic Loon yesterday that, through a very roundabout happenstance, led to Katie West and I getting some great looks and good photos of it from her pontoon boat last evening. Sorry that more people did not have this rare and unique opportunity.

Was at Sims Park from 12:50 to 1:20pm only looking at the lake today and saw in the water five female Black Scoters and one Surf Scoter many Horned Grebes (over 80) and Bonaparte's Gulls. Did not see any scoters yesterday late. Only a few Red-breasted Mergansers. Only saw between 25 to 35 mergs last weekend here.
