Subject: Hoover Nature Preserve, Delaware County
Date: Thu Jun 21 2018 1:48 am
From: cbombaci AT att.net
 
Today Shaune Skinner, Ann Cramer and I launched the H.M.S. Hoover to explore several areas of the Hoover Nature Preserve for Prothonotary Warblers and what ever else Mother Nature blessed us with. We crossed our fingers as the weather predictions were not all that welcoming. The likelihood of rain was moderate to high but a little water would not deter our intrepid crew. Areas worked today included Mudhen Marsh and the surrounding islands and nearby shore, along the northwest shore of the reservoir, Area I and Little Walnut Creek.
We started with Mudhen Marsh and the areas near to it. We were rewarded with a good number of Prothonotary Warblers. Two had adjacent territories and delighted us with their aerial maneuvers as they chased each other about.We located Prothonotary Warbler territories in both nest boxes and natural cavities. Before the day was done we would end up with 31 territories. With the high water levels at Hoover Reservoir the Prothonotaries are having a very good year. We have been monitoring 104 territories in the areas we have been covering. We have not had an opportunity to work the east shore from the Sunbury Road causeway to Area S near the dam. If the numbers are within previous ranges there should be 40 to 50 additional territories along the east shore and into Areas Q and S.
Also observed at or near Mudhen Marsh were a pair of Osprey. A few years ago we located their natural nest. Since then storms felled the tree with the first nest. We see them with fish but we have not located the nest nest site. Even with our nest platforms the species still can construct natural nests although some are in unusual locations such as atop a high tension electric tower. In total we located four pairs today.
We began our tally of 21 Red-headed Woodpecker nest cavities at Mudhen Marsh, adding to the list with additional nests at Area I along the northwest shore, Areas H and I, and along Little Walnut Creek. Activity observed strongly indicate that there are hungry mouths being feed and the adults were constantly going on a foraging run, back to the nest cavity to pop their head in to calm the hungry brood and then off for another food run. All this created quite an aerial show for us as beautiful flashing white wings did their revue for us. We were privileged.
Under the bridges we passed were multitudes of nesting Cliff Swallows. At one location we watched the adults collecting mud for their construction projects. As they gathered mud along the shore they looked like a small flock of butterflies as their wings were raised similar to those of a resting butterfly. This gave us a different vantage to watch them and appreciated their beauty. We estimated thatat the four locations we observed them there were approximately 250 to 275 mud nests.
At each area we located Yellow-billed Cuckoos. With today's individuals we have observed almost 40 Yellow-billed Cuckoos. They were very cooperative and sat still, in the open and had their pictures taken.
Our species count today was 55 with a nice diversity.
Then we looked up and saw an ugly purplish sky descending upon us. Obviously we were at the furthest point from where we launched. We crossed our fingers, aimed south and made a run for it. The clouds got nearer ad nearer as we raced to dock before it hit. We got the boat out of the water, got in our cars and as I closed the door the rain hit with a vengeance. I could barely see as I drove home thankful that although we cut it close we beat the rain.
A fun day with two good friends and many enjoyable observations. And I got home dry.
Charlie Bombaci, Hover Nature Preserve

Fantastic news, Ken!  I appreciate all of the work it took you and others to save this useful information.  I use it all the time when I go to a new county I'm not familiar with.  I recommend this resource to other birders.

Good birding all,

Subject: New host for Ohio eBird Hotspot website
Date: Wed Jun 20 2018 15:53 pm
From: ken.ostermiller AT gmail.com
 
Please change your bookmark. The Ohio eBird Hotspot website has moved!
https://www.birding-in-ohio.co...

Earlier this year, Wikispaces, which has been the host for the Ohio eBird
Hotspot website, announced that it is going out of business. I have
transferred the content to a new host and am no longer maintaining the
pages on Wikispaces.

Please note that the new site is a "work in progress." It has taken 3
months of work to move all the content about the eBird hotspots in Ohio to
the new platform. All the hotspots are available and may be reached from
links on the appropriate county page. There is still much work to do in
building additional links within the site. Features, such as a clickable
map and an alphabetical index of hotspots, will be added as I have time. In
the meantime, all the helpful information about hotspots contributed by so
many in the Ohio birding community is now available on the new site.

A wonderful small group of volunteers has been proofreading the new pages
-- it is easy to make mistakes in doing this data transfer. Some counties,
colored blue, are still being reviewed. Counties colored red are awaiting
review. If you would be interested in reviewing the hotspots in any of
those counties, please contact me.

If you find errors or would like to suggest changes or additions to any
page, please let me know. Contact information is available on the "Contact"
link at the top of every page in the new website.

I have been activating new eBird hotspots as they have been suggested but
have quite a backlog of new hotspot pages to create. If you suggested a new
hotspot and have been wondering whether it has been activated, it has! I
will let you know when new pages are added to the website.

Thanks to all who have been helping me with this project.
Ken Ostermiller
eBird Hotspot reviewer for Ohio

The Conneaut roseate spoonbill was observed Sunday at Conneaut Harbor at the sand spit.  Shelley Still took a great close photograph that was just posted on her FB page. The bird looks like a 1st year in this pic.

Subject: Geauga County Osprey Nesting Survey
Date: Wed Jun 20 2018 1:42 am
From: mmvalencic AT roadrunner.com
 
This is the third year I have surveyed communication towers across Geauga
County for Osprey nesting. Here's how the numbers compare:



In 2016 there were 8 active nests, 16 adults and 10 confirmed (seen).



In 2017 there were 12 active nests, 24 adults and 16 confirmed chicks.



In 2018, after two visits (5/31 and 6/19) there are 12 active nests, 1
unsure (two adults on 5/31 but none today), 25 adults and 12 chicks
confirmed so far. The chicks are still small and some may have been at the
bottom of the nest. I watched each tower for 15 minutes (less if I saw 2
adults and 2 chicks) in order to give the chicks a chance to show
themselves. In a couple weeks they will be perched on the edge of the nest
and easier to count.



I will be making one or two more visits to try to get a firm handle on
chicks and that one unconfirmed nest.



One interesting point I shared last year is that most of these nests are
within 1 - 2 miles of a large lake or river (LaDue, E. Branch, Bass Lake,
Punderson, Moss Beach Club and the Upper Cuyahoga River). Two nests are
about 3 miles but there are large ponds between their tower and the lake,
and they may be using those for fishing. I visited 15 other towers across
the county but they had no nests and were outside the 2 - 3 mile limit.

Subject: DarbydaleArea,6-18:BlackVultures,Redstart,Dickcissels
Date: Mon Jun 18 2018 20:34 pm
From: robthorn6 AT gmail.com
 
Checking several areas around this village near the southern end of
Battelle Darby MetroPark, I found quite a few interesting residents,
including:

Vultures - a roost of 30+ birds at Osprey Lake had 26 Turkey Vultures and
4 Black Vultures.
Woodcock - flushed up a bird along the trail northeast of the SR 665 bridge
over Darby Creek.
Warblers - Parulas & Yellow-throateds were common along Darby creek, but I
also found a singing American Redstart at the SR 665 bridge.
Tanagers - Scarlets were singing in many areas, but one was joined by a
Summer Tanager at the Grassle Rd. limestone prairie.
Dickcissels - at least 6 were singing in the grasslands along the west side
of Youngs Rd, across from the SWACO landfill.

Subject: Common Loon, June 17th Lake County
Date: Mon Jun 18 2018 3:12 am
From: colefor3 AT gmail.com
 
Hello,

For anyone interested in seeing a Common Loon in mid-June, an adult bird
continues on Corning Lake at the Holden Arboretum in Kirtland, Lake County
on the evening of June 17th. Also around are eight juvenile Hooded
Mergansers with an adult female too. I continue to hear Purple Finches in
the area as well.
Remember that Holden Arboretum is membership-based, so a fee is required,
unless you are a member, of course.

Subject: Lorain/Ashtabula Spoonbill
Date: Mon Jun 18 2018 3:07 am
From: colefor3 AT gmail.com
 
Good evening,
Just a quick clarification post and update about the Roseate Spoonbill.
It turns out, the spoonbill was NOT observed in Lorain County last evening
(16th). Therefore, the Spoonbill sighting from Conneaut in Ashtabula was
most surely the same bird observed in Lorain in the past week. However,
birders were at Conneaut today, June 17th, and reported no sightings of the
spoonbill. For any birders in PA who follow this listsev, keep your eyes
peeled! For those in Ohio, also keep watch as this bird could still be in
the state!

Good Birding.

Subject: Red -shoulder hawks - Florida or Extimus race near Chagrin Falls, Ohio
Date: Sun Jun 17 2018 21:25 pm
From: nxm6 AT case.edu
 
Help - My wife and I saw two Red-shoulder hawks in our back yard last night,
June 16, around 8 pm. We live near Chagrin Falls. They look to us like the
Florida or extimus race. We don't know is whether this race in rare in NE
Ohio.



This is a link to where we have uploaded 4 photos of the two birds, labeled
bird one and bird two.




https://www.flickr.com/photos/...





If anyone in the group can tell us if these are rare here we would
appreciate it. Also to verify our interpretation that these are the extimus
race.



Thanks,



Nelson and Ann Mostow

Further discussion with Noel indicates the Roseate Spoonbill is a young bird, likely a second year bird. The high water at the sand spit may keep the weekend crowds down enough to warrant a search with a camera later today.

Thank you for posting Mike! Was the bird an immature? Probably a good
chance it is the same bird that was in Lorain County recently.

I'm forwarding an observation by good friend and nature guy, Noel Kennedy. On June 16 at 8:30pm, Noel spotted a roseate spoonbill feeding in a marshy area at the Conneaut sand spit. Lake Erie levels are high and conditions good for wading birds. It was spotted by Noel and two others, one was operating the pay station at the gate.

Subject: Out of state birder
Date: Sat Jun 16 2018 13:29 pm
From: rodneyani AT gmail.com
 
Thanks everybody for info on where to go birding.  I was able to find my
easy target bird, the Willow Flycatcher. Easy to identify by song.

It was enjoyable to go birding in the many excellent parks and I was able
to see and hear lots of birds. Lot of birds that I don't get to see and
hear in Alabama except during migration. Clear Creek had lots of singing
warblers and a singing Veery. Darby Batelle had lots of singing Henslows,
Willow Flycatchers and a Peregrine Falcon.

I will have to go in May, maybe next year. And will probably be up in
December.

Subject: Hoover Nature Preserve, Galena (Delaware County)
Date: Sat Jun 16 2018 3:39 am
From: cbombaci AT att.net
 
With the very high temperatures predicted for this weekend, I tried to do some of my nest box monitoring Friday. I began with Weise Road. This area used to be much wilder until they ran a section of the Ohio to Erie Bike Trail through it. All the traffic has materially cut down the amount of bird activity here. When nature had taken over the old road the area was thick with activity and there were four times the number of Prothonotary Warbler territories along the shore. The road is still well worth a morning walk as there are still numerous species that nest here including the Prothonotary Warblers. 
Friday I located 3 Prothonotary Warbler territories along the road from the entrance nearest Old 3C Highway to the abandoned section that continues pass where the bike trail turns to the right and over the road. Only one of the males had been banded. The other two were not. I also observed a female emerge from a nest box and flit about looking for food. It should not be long before the Prothonotaries begin showing signs of hatchlings in the nest and the first fledglings.
The road has many Yellow Warblers along its length. It almost seemed that their territories were too close and over the bush arguments would be pursued. There were signs of too many too close today as I observed multiple squabbles. The males made the presence known as they sang from the overhead wires, bush tops and trees. I counted upwards of 15 of them.
Some of the other species Friday include, in part, a Green Heron staking prey along the water's edge; Warbling Vireos sounding off from the upper areas of the trees; flycatchers were represented by Eastern Wood-Pewee, Acadian Flycatcher, Eastern Phoebe, Great Crested Flycatchers and an Eastern Kingbird; Among the woodpeckers were a nesting pair of Red-headed Woodpeckers and a passing by Pileated Woodpecker; lots of Baltimore Orioles; and many Gray Catbirds. I apparently walked too close to one's nest as it raised a ruckus as I was watching a Prothonotary Warbler and it buzzed my once.
I later walked out on the boardwalk at Area M to check for Prothonotary Warbler activity. There were five males singing from the back of the small inlets and along the boardwalk. Near the end of the boardwalk a banded male landed on the rail ahead of me. Always a great sight in the sunlight.

Subject: Summit County - Black Tern at Nimisila Reservoir
Date: Fri Jun 15 2018 13:09 pm
From: brian0918 AT gmail.com
 
A Black Tern was found yesterday evening by Joanne Priest at Nimisila
Reservoir. She posted some great photos taken from kayak on eBird. I
relocated it this morning, viewing from the C6 boat launch parking lot on
Christman Rd. It was flying west of the island and reed patches, diving
frequently and disappearing behind the reeds.

If you try in the afternoon or evening, you would have better views from
the west at the boat launch ramp off Main St. You can park there and then
walk south in the woods a little ways, staying near the shore, until it
opens up to a large area where you can view the island and reed patches to
the south.

My wife Denise and I would like to put out our annual invitation to the birding community, to come and visit us at "The Center", this Sunday, June 17th. We will be part of the volunteer host staff from 1:00PM to 5:00PM. To those who have not visited "The Center", in reality it is a museum of natural history, with over 385 bird and mammal mounts in natural settings. Everything from a full size Musk Oxen to a Great Gray Owl can be seen, with a Passenger Pigeon thrown in for good measure. In "The Ohio Room" nearly every bird and mammal you will ever encounter in the state can be found. A new exciting addition to "The Center" is "The North American Room". Some of the bird mounts to be seen here are Black-billed Magpie, Clark's Nutcracker, Rock Ptarmigan, Sage Grouse, Lesser Prairie Chicken, and Mexican Jay, just to name a few. BCWEC is located at 12798 Echo Dell Road, East Liverpool, Ohio 43920. It is also adjacent to and at the entrance to Beaver Creek State Park. There is no admission charge, but donations are accepted. Come on down and see us. You won't be disappointed.

Hi,

So it would seem this Spoonbill is roosting in the location near Oberlin
and going somewhere else during the day. Birds are often creatures of
habit. Finding the place the bird is spending the day seems to be a real
possibility.

If any birders plan to chase this bird in the morning, I highly suggest
being on site at sunrise. Note: park at New Russia Township Park and Nature
Preserve off of Butternut Ridge Road in Oberlin, Lorain County. Then walk
up to the road, turn left and walk west, staying on the south side of the
road near the fence, then look north into the wetland in private property
in an agricultural field. Good luck.

Mostly resident birds were active at these two north Pickaway County
Preserves this morning. Both wetlands had high water levels and few
waterbirds, but both had lots of singing landbirds. Best were two warblers
that likely strayed to Stage's Pond woodlands: an Ovenbird (singing on the
White Oak Trail) and a Worm-eating (singing near the Multiflora Trail
start). Neither typically nest here, so I assume that they were
prospecting for new nesting territories. Other unusuals included

-cuckoos - Yellow-billeds calling at both spots, with 4+ at Stage's Pond
-WillowFlycatchers - only a few at each park
-BrownThrasher - singers at both parks
-Rose-br.Grosbeaks - 4 at Stage's Pond and another at Mackey Ford
-Orioles - both Baltimores and Orchards at both parks

Summer doldrums were much in evidence at these two Metroparks south of
Columbus. Many residents were around, though not always easily seen. I
also stopped at Bareis Preserve between the two parks, and had a good list,
with nothing very unusual. Water levels at all 3 parks were very high (I
was sloshing through parts of the trails in all 3), so shorebirds and
waterfowl were not much in evidence. Notables included

Great Egrets - the common waterbird this morning, with 3 at Walnut Woods
and 9 at Pick Ponds
Cuckoos - Yellow-billeds at all 3 parks, but also had a Black-billed fly by
at Bareis Preserve
Flycatchers - lots of Pewees, Willows, and Great Cresteds at each park
Warblers - nothing unusual, but lots of Yellows and CommonYellowthroats
Yellow-br.Chats - 2 singing birds at Walnut Woods, and another along the
Meadowlark Trail at Pick Ponds.
Rose-br.Grosbeak - birds at Bareis & Pick Ponds
Orioles - Baltimores at many locations, but also had Orchards at Walnut
Woods and the Wood Duck picnic area at Pick Ponds.

I've spent a lot of time in Shawnee and never heard a grouse there, though
I'm sure there's still a few around. That whole 60,000 acre forest is
being decimated by logging without much regard to birds and wildlife, it's
a pretty sad situation and one that really doesn't need to happen.

Subject: Little Walnut Creek, Hoover Nature Preserve
Date: Tue Jun 12 2018 18:02 pm
From: cbombaci AT att.net
 
This morning I walked along the Little Walnut Creek section of the Hoover Nature Preserve in Galena (Delaware County) to monitor the activity in the area. From the beginning I was constantly within hearing of singing male Prothonotary Warblers. Last week we tried to monitor the area by boat but were stopped by a fallen tree that spanned the creek. I worked the area past the downed tree today and observed 10 Male and 1 female Prothonotary Warbler. Currently some are carrying food to cavities or nest boxes. Only one of the individuals I observed today had previously been banded. I got to introduce the Prothonotary Warblers to some new people. They were curious as to what I was doing so I explained to them and their grandchild about the nest box trail at Hoover Reservoir. As if on cue a male began singing nearby. I gave a small "phish" and he came in to less than 15 feet of us. The couple and their grandchild are now appreciative of Prothonotaries. Sometimes I think they are part "hams" that want to show off.
Further up the creek (no pun intended) I discovered a Hooded Merganser hen. No sign of ducklings today but they have nested in this area in previous years.
Both Red-headed and Pileated Woodpecker nest holes were located along the creek. Both species were quite vocal this morning. The Red-headed Woodpeckers were especially vivid as their white shown like a waved flag as they flew. They have one of the purest white colors of the birds which makes it easy to spot them if they are around. They are having a very good year at Hoover Reservoir this year as Shaune and I seem to be finding them everywhere.
Other birds observed include Yellow-billed Cuckoos, Green Herons, Acadian Flycatchers and Wood Ducks among others.

Subject: Conneaut Harbor Bald Eagle Gathering / Ashtabula County
Date: Mon Jun 11 2018 20:13 pm
From: ohiomagpie AT hotmail.com
 
This morning, Monday, about 9:15AM, upon my arrival out on "The Conneaut Sandspit", 24 Bald Eagles could be seen. 12 were on the Lighthouse Breakwall, 4 on the sandspit, and 8 on the East Breakwall and the aggregate piles. More could have been back up in the Conneaut Creek channel and the conveyors area. My count included 5 adults and 19 juveniles. To me, the annual gathering of the eagles seems to be off to a bit early of a start. In past years by mid July, the count can grow to fifty or more. By 10:50AM, the eagles had already dispersed to wherever. For whatever the reason they are here, I believe this annual happening produces a concentration of more eagles than anywhere else on Lake Erie, and obviously in Ohio. Best viewing is early morning from "The Sandspit", which is now accessible by vehicle. No access fee past the gate to drive out is required, until after 11:00AM. Another highlight this morning, was a Common Merganser family, mom and eight merglets, with three of the kids riding on her back. By the way, the water level of Lake Erie and in the bay is super high! One thing that will apparently never change, upon my departure, the infamous rake tractor was arriving to terrorize the birds, and groom and wear out, every square inch of sandspit.

Subject: late post upland sandpiper, Ashtabula Cty oh
Date: Sun Jun 10 2018 23:46 pm
From: jak1 AT clevelandmetroparks.com
 
On Saturday, June 9, decided to look for the Upland Sandpiper on Stollecker rd in Jefferson, OH, Ashtabula County. Was reported earlier in the week that one was seen there.


Went with Liz McQuaid and Marty Reynard. How lucky were we that as soon as we turned down the gravel/sand rd. in the middle of farm country, we heard the sandpiper call. Scanning with scopes the recently plowed field Marty found the bird. We all got a quick view of it before it disappeared behind a large clump of turned up soil. Never saw it again. We did hear it call a few more time.


To be able to see this bird in farm fields all around and many places to hide among the clumps of turned up earth was amazing. Cannot believe we were able to find and see it. And also to hear it call.


other birds seen: Spotted Sandpiper, Savannah Sparrows, Boblinks, Eastern Meadowlarks


Don't know who report seeing it earlier, but thank you.

We hiked the North Road and Tower Trail in this State Park/Forest south of
Chillicothe, and found an interesting mix of birds. The road had the usual
deciduous forest suspects, highlighted by 4+ Kentucky Warblers and 1
Worm-eating, among 9 species of warblers,3 vireos,Scarlet Tanagers, and
Wood Thrushes. The return leg on the tower trail was more unusual, passing
through a timber-harvested area that was almost Savannah-like. It had
open-country birds unusual for this location, including 2 Prairie Warblers
and 1 Yellow-breasted Chat. The undergrowth also sported a larger bloom of
flowers that attracted lots of butterflies, including an eye-popping 15
Zebra Swallowtails.

I saw a black vulture perched on a telephone pole by the railroad tracks by the entrance to the North Chippewa Inlet Trail in Medina County. About ten minutes earlier I saw another one flying over the north most wetlands here.

Date: Fri Jun 8 2018 16:37 pm
From: robthorn6 AT gmail.com
 
Lots of singing residents at these two parks south of downtown this
morning. I also went down to the Haul Road area and Scioto Grove
MetroPark, but didn't see much different stuff there. Best birds were:

-Dickcissels - at least 2 are singing around the small prairie in front of
the Grange Audubon center. Great looks at them there, but couldn't find
them in similar fields down at Berliner & Scioto Grove.

-Orioles - lots of Baltimores in most places along the river, but also had
pairs of Orchards at SCioto Audubon, Berliner, and even along the Impound
Lot Road.

-Flycatchers - nothing terribly unusual, but good #s of Pewees, Acadians,
and Willows in appropriate habitats. E.Kingbirds were at Scioto Audubon
and Scioto Grove

-Warblers - nothing unusual, but more Yellow-throateds along this stretch
of the Scioto than in past years. Also had Prothonotaries at their
expected spots in Scioto Audubon, Berliner, and Scioto Grove.

The Flycatcher was still present today. We watched it from 12:15-12:45 and
it was still present when we left. It is definitely worth a detour.

Good trip to Bath Nature Preserve (Summit Co) midday.  Many bobolinks,
meadowlarks, bluebirds, a thrasher, adult bald eagle, and 3 Henslow's
sparrows all by Gas Pump F on the bridle trail. A pair of trumpeter swans
remain at the large pond closer to the parking lot, but not sitting on the
nest.
Nice chat with Ken Andrews, too!

Subject: Possible Harris's Hawk, 6/6 Holmes County
Date: Thu Jun 7 2018 20:18 pm
From: k-cmiller AT att.net
 
Ben Morrison just passed on a very credible report from an experienced birder who apparently saw a Harris's Hawk last night sitting and flying near the intersection of Twshp Rd 256 & Twshp Rd 257 west of Millersburg in Holmes County. No photos obtained but a very clear description given. There is one Ohio record from Pickaway County in 1917 and the species has a track record of vagrancy (although the date doesn't fit well into this pattern) but is also a very common falconry bird so if anyone relocates this bird observe the legs for any bands, or leather as carefully as you can and observe the behavior carefully as well.

Subject: GlacierRidge-TrabuePreserve,6-06:Olive-sidedFlycatcher,Henslow'sSparrow
Date: Thu Jun 7 2018 0:23 am
From: robthorn6 AT gmail.com
 
Stops at these 2 west Dublin parks this morning produced a good list,
including some birds that didn't realize that migration was over, and a few
others that weren't sure about where they should be. In the former
category were
-Olive-sided Flycatcher - flycatching from a snag along Tullymore Dr on the
edge of Trabue Preserve, certainly not a resident there
-Black-billed Cuckoo - one around the pond at Trabue, either a late migrant
or a wanderer

In the latter category were
-Henslow's Sparrow - 1 signing in the meadow north of the windmill at
Glacier Ridge. No Savannah or Grasshopper Sparrows here, so it must have
grown up a bit too much for them
-Marsh Wren - 1 was singing near the tower at the Honda wetlands; good
habitat for them, they just often aren't around there

More expected (but still pleasing) included
-Bobolinks - at least 2 males were still singing in the north meadow at
Glacier Ridge
-Orchard orioles - pairs were carrying food at both the wetland and along
the north bike loop at Glacier Ridge
-Summer Tanager - 1 was calling in McKitrick Woods, off the corner of
McKitrick Road and Hyland-Croy

Today at Indian Point Metro Park in the Grand River found a hen Common
Merganser with 4 or 5 young. The 2nd Ohio Breeding Bird Atlas confirmed
this species from extreme eastern Lake Cty. - this spot is considerably to
