Subject: Dark morph Red tailed hawk
Date: Sun Dec 21 2014 16:02 pm
From: mvs AT ohionature.org
 
While driving west on 161 from Licking County today I observed 2 red tails
sitting on the New Albany exit signs. One was pointing in my direction but
as I passed the second I saw a very dark morph bird. I doubt it was a rough
legged though I was doing 65 mph. On my way back I looked for this bird but
found "only" a beautiful mature Red shouldered hawk sitting on the top of a
flag pole. Keep your eyes open in this area.

Yesterday and today multiple Common Redpolls have been seen foraging low along the main path around the impoundment. Patty McKelvey took some cool video footage of at least one today. Lorain Impoundment is the wetland CDF complex just north of Spitzer Marina, bordered by the marina and Lake Erie

Subject: Nesting Box-Barn Owl
Date: Sun Dec 21 2014 6:16 am
From: dnott621 AT gmail.com
 
So my beautiful nest box came in today! 108.00$ was definitely worth it.
It's from JC's Wildlife. And I have some questions that i am not sure
of.....

How long does it take for a Barn to find the nest?

But anyway I do recommend this box for anyone else who wants a box. But
there's only one thing that is bothering me about the box, the hole size.
It's about 4 3/4 in wide and 3 1/4 in tall. I think it's too small. I've
read that the best size is 5 in by 5 1/2. Will my size be big enough?
Stupid Google won't answer these questions...

I will surly love some answers! Thanks! ;)

Drove through Geauga County today with fellow birder Laura Alldridge and stopped in on Hayes Rd, east of Middlefield. It continues to be a reliable spot and we enjoyed good views of at least two light and two dark morph Rough-legged Hawks.

Merry Birding!

This evening I had about two dozen mourning doves in my yard in North Perry,
Lake County and included amongst them was one Eurasian collared dove. The
birds fed for about five minutes before being scared off. It was late
afternoon and they did not return.

Subject: HooverDam,12-18,19
Date: Fri Dec 19 2014 12:32 pm
From: robthorn AT earthlink.net
 
Scouting for tomorrow's Hoover CBC, I birded several areas around the lower portion of Hoover Reservoir (NE of Columbus), and found mixed success.  Nothing has frozen yet other than the shallowest puddles, so waterbirds still have many options.  The reservoir below County Line Bridge had few waterfowl, but there were flock of mergansers north of the bridge, up thorugh the Maxtown launch and beyond.  Landbirds seem more restricted, with very spotty fruit crops.  Notables included:

American Wigeon - not along the reservoir, ther was a flock of 14 at the large pond at Hoof Woods Park
Redhead - 4 were with the duck flock at the Hoof Woods Pond
Red-br. Mergansers - at least 4 were along the east shore of the Reservoir above the dam
Hooded mergansers - over 300+ in flocks between Maxtown boat launch and the County Line Bridge; only 4 below the bridge.
Horned Grebes - 3 were above the dam
Gulls - hardly any, with only a few Bonapartes and Ring-bills around the entire lower Reservoir
Red-shouldered Hawk - at least 1 adult was calling in Walnut Creek Ravine at Area S access
Flickers - good numbers, with 2-3 at nearly every stop on both days
E.Bluebirds - at least 4 were foraging along the spillway edge below the dam; another 2 were at the Walnut St. Launch
Yellow-rumped Warblers - small flocks at several stops, the largest being 6 along the Disc Golf Course east of the dam.
Tree Sparrows - a small flock of 10 birds was in weeds around the parking area off Central College Rd below the dam.

Subject: Killdeer Plains, Big Island, and Lawrence Woods
Date: Tue Dec 16 2014 19:57 pm
From: ken.ostermiller AT gmail.com
 
We visited Killdeer Plains, Big Island, and Lawrence Woods in Wyandot and
Marion counties today. Best birds of the day were:

Seeing a Northern Shrike in both counties. First along County Road 71 at
Killdeer Plains in Wyandot County. A bit later we saw (another?) shrike
near Washburn Road across from Pond 27. The two sightings were about 1.5
miles and an hour apart. Same bird? Not sure. Could have been two.

About an hour before sunset we watched 5 Northern Harriers flying over the
fields at Lawrence Woods in Marion County (2 male "gray ghosts and 3
females). So fun to watch them flying together and interacting.

They are hunting on Pond 27 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so there were few
birds there. A nice group of 40+ Tundra Swans had gathered at the
relatively safe west end of the impoundment.

All in all a nice day of birding despite the rain and despite not seeing
any Short-eared Owls at Lawrence Woods even though we waited until well
after sunset.

Subject: Owl pellet
Date: Tue Dec 16 2014 15:00 pm
From: dnott621 AT gmail.com
 
i found a small owl pellet a couple days ago. Looking at size and location,
probably a saw whet. It was about a inch long, and under some huge pine
trees. I picked through and only one mouse in it, and some insect wings. So
maybe a Saw-whet owl pellet, or long earred?

I'll keep on a look for that Red Breasted Nuthatch ;)

Still no EveningGrosbeaks :( looking hard tho!

Female purple finch in pine yesterday

Good luck on that Big Year too!

Subject: Greater White-fronted Geese - Stage's Pond
Date: Tue Dec 16 2014 13:05 pm
From: mbshuter AT gmail.com
 
Stage's Pond State Nature Preserve in Pickaway County is hosting 17!!!
Greater White-fronted Geese and about 60 CAGO's. They were seen on the
small pond complex shortly before 1 p.m. today. I personally have never
seen so many in one place at the same time. They were a mix of adults and
juveniles. The small ponds are accessed from the main entrance off of
Hagerty Road. Go back to the large parking lot, then walk a short distance
to the observation blind. A scope would be helpful but they can be seen
and identified with binoculars.

I was out in the rain trying to find a Red-breasted Nuthatch. Has anyone
seen one in Pickaway County? I need one for my Big Year.

Subject: New Ohio eBird hotspots
Date: Sat Dec 13 2014 18:54 pm
From: ken.ostermiller AT gmail.com
 
The Ohio eBird Hotspot web site has new features.

http://ohioebirdhotspots.wikispaces.com/Birding+in+Ohio



The home page now features a list of the 20 most popular birding locations
in Ohio including the number of species reported to eBird at these
locations. In many cases (such as Magee Marsh Wildlife Area or the Cuyahoga
Valley National Park) I have compiled the number of species reported at all
the hotspots in the location.



On each county page there is a list of the 5 locations in the county with
the most species reported to eBird. These are individual hotspots, so in
some cases there are sub-locations listed for a primary location.



There are similar web sites with information of eBird hotspots in Arizona,
Colorado, Georgia, Missouri, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode
Island, and South Dakota at

http://ebirdhotspots.wikispace...

About half of these web sites are still under development. If you are
traveling to any of these states, you may find the web pages helpful in
planning where you will bird.



Ohio birders have added several new shared bird reporting hotspots to
eBird.



Franklin County

Olentangy Park

Sunset Harbor

Subject: Snowy Owl Butler County, evening update
Date: Fri Dec 12 2014 20:04 pm
From: krhuttondvm AT frontier.com
 
I saw the Butler County SNOWY OWL between approximately 4:30-5pm.  It was in a harvested soybean field south of Tylersville Rd, east of Seward Rd and west of a housing development.  It was pretty far out, so my phone-scoped photos are horrible.  After viewing it from the farm gate on Seward (scope not required, but helpful) we drove around through the housing development off Smith Rd (N on Seward to Tylersville, east on Tylersville past the farm and the storage unit place, and take the first right onto Smith.  There is a walking trail called Villages of Providence Trail that encircles the housing development. We received permission from some homeowners to walk through their yards to access the walking trail and view the owl.  I shared scope views with several residents. They were thrilled to see the rare visitor.

Sharing Virginia Wilson's report from Cincinnati Birders Facebook group:
"Around 4:30 it was in the large wide open field south just south of Tylersville on the east side of the road. It was a fairly long distance away and without a bunch of birders looking, it would have been nearly impossible to locate. It gave us a couple of shows of flight as the daylight was quickly fading. After the sun had set it flew further south and landed near the top of a sycamore tree (where there is a grouping of 3 sycamores).

The roosting location in the sycamore tree was behind the first house (farm & house) on the left, if coming south on Seward past Tylersville (beyond the large field.) Approx 6:15 p.m."

This location is very close to the Butler County Regional Airport.  Knowing the propensity for Snowy Owls to favor airports, if the bird goes missing from this field, I would suggest trying the airport.

Screech owl maybe? I couldn't tell if I was dreaming again😂 But I saw a
opossum eating some apples on the ground. So my grandma purchased another
screech owl box, and a barn owl box! So I'll have one barn owl box at my
house, 2 screech owl boxes and a barn owl box at grandmas! Perfect
locations as well!

Will post if anything nests in any of them
