U.S. Department of Energy will host public scoping session for Project
Icebreaker



(Cleveland, OH) - The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers (USACE) and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) are requesting public
input on the scope of an Environmental Assessment for Project Icebreaker.
Icebreaker is a 6-turbine wind demonstration project 8-10 miles offshore in
Lake Erie proposed by the Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation (LEEDCo).
The public scoping event will be held on Wednesday, September 28th from 4:00
- 7:00 pm (open house) at the Lakewood Park - Woman's Club Pavilion, 14532
Lake Ave., Lakewood, Ohio 44107.

Representatives from the federal agencies will be present to answer
questions about the federal National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and
federal permitting processes. Officials from the Lake Erie Energy
Development Corporation (LEEDCo) will also be present to answer questions
about the project. Public comment will be taken during the meeting.

DOE is proposing to authorize federal funding to LEEDCo to design, permit,
construct and decommission the project. "This is another step along the way
to ensure Project Icebreaker becomes e a reality for the Cleveland area,"
commented Dr. Lorry Wagner, President of LEEDCo. "We encourage members of
the pulbic to attend and provide their input into the project."

Upon completion of the event and after collecting public feedback on the
scope of issues related to project, the federal agencies will develop their
Environmental Assessment. Written comments can also be submitted to U.S.
DOE, Golden Field Office, NEPA Division, 15013 Denver West Parkway, Golden,
CO 80401, or by email to ProjectIcebreaker@ee.doe.gov
. on or before October 21, 2016 to
ensure DOE receives written comments in time for consideration in the draft
Environmental Assessment.

From: haans42 AT gmail.com
 
Hi,

Pine Siskin visiting my feeder on Gildersleeve Mountain this afternoon.
This is a rare breeding species along the front of the Allegheny Plateau
and so it is impossible to determine if the bird is an early migrant. That
said I have not seen Pine Siskins here since late spring

Subject: Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center Falconry Event Invite
Date: Mon Sep 26 2016 16:34 pm
From: ohiomagpie AT hotmail.com
 
This upcoming Saturday October 1st, there will be a Falconry Event held at "The Center" from 11:00AM to 4:00PM. Join Mick Brown, master falconer, along with his Harris's Hawks, and other falconry experts as they show the birds they use to hunt prey. Demonstrations will be held during the afternoon in the grassy area behind "The Center". The Center is a natural history museum with over 350 bird and mammal mounts in natural settings. Full size Musk Oxen, Mountain Goat, Caribou, and Grizzly Bears, are a sampling of the mammals. Mounts of 187 species of Ohio birds are on display, along with Great Gray Owl, Black-billed Magpie, and even Passenger Pigeon, just to name a few. As an added bonus, also taking place in the adjacent Beaver Creek State Park, on both Saturday and Sunday, from 10:00AM to 4:00PM, is The Pioneer Days celebration. The annual event takes place in the restored village area and includes arts and crafts, demonstrations, food, apple butter making, grinding of grain in the old mill, and the annual duck race. If you make the trip to this scenic corner of southeastern Columbiana County, we guarantee you won't be disappointed. "The Center" is located at 12798 Echo Dell Road, East Liverpool, Ohio.

Subject: PickPonds,9-25:SandhillCranes,teals,shorebirds
Date: Sun Sep 25 2016 20:27 pm
From: robthorn AT earthlink.net
 
The area around Pickerington Ponds was jumping this morning.  I stopped at the Wood Duck picnic area and Bowen Road access, as well as nearby Portman Park. Greenwing Pond was low, with lots of shorebirds and teal, while other marshes were largely dry; Ellis Pond, in contrast, was nearly full.  Away from the water, warblers were spotty, but many other migrants were in evidence.  Notables included:

Sandhill Cranes - a pair flew over Greenwing Pond early, settling in the fields by Glacier Knoll
Teals - Greenwing Pond had flocks of both Green-wings (17) and Blue-wings (8).
Great Egrets - 4 were at Greewnwing Pond and another 4 were at Ellis Pond
Green Herons - 2 were fishing the receding water of Greenwing Pond
Plovers - aside from the ubiquitous Killdeer, Greenwing Pond also had 1-2 Semipalmated Plovers
Sandpipers - Greenwing pond had 2 Lesser Yellowlegs, 1 Solitary Sandpiper, 4 Least Sandpipers, 5 Semipalmated Sandpipers, and 2 Long-billed Dowitchers

Flycatchers - a Pewee was still around Portman, while Pick Ponds had 3 E.Phoebes
Vireos - a Blue-headed Vireo was along the Yellowlegs Trail near Ellis Pond, while a Red-eyed was at Portman
BlueJays - small groups were in many places, which is surprising here given the paucity of forest cover
Swallows - 30+ Rough-wings were foraging around Glacier Knoll & Greenwing Pond
Thrushes - single Swainson's were at Portman and along the Yellowlegs Trail, while small Robin flocks were everywhere
Warblers - few, with Magnolias, Redstarts, and CommonYellowthroats widespread
Sparrows - still plenty of Field & Song Sparrows, but Ellis Pond also had a Lincoln's Sparrow
Blackbirds - an early flock of 170+ Red-wings flew out of Mallard Marsh at Pick Ponds

Subject: sharp shinned hawks - geauga co.
Date: Sun Sep 25 2016 12:25 pm
From: ingais AT earthlink.net
 
I am always fascinated by the boldness, the aggressiveness of
young sharp shinned hawks. Here at my house in Geauga Co.
I’ve been watching the usual interplay between a flock of blue jays and
a lone sharpie. Back and forth, chasing, screeching, diving through
the trees. Practice sessions is all I can make out of these exercises.

Today, at Auburn Road - Ladue, I saw a new demonstration of the
sharpies boldness. One of the green herons was perched low
in a tree branch, over the river, when a sharpie strafed him. Seemed
to aim right for him. The heron, calling and clucking in alarm, went for
the river where he sat in water half way up to his neck, still calling
in alarm. The sharpie sat on the branch from which it had rousted the
heron, admiring his work.

There was a Harris's Sparrow at the BSBO feeders  at about 12:20 today. It flew into the brush by the feeders and didn't return. I was unable to get pictures. 

Happy birding,

I guess I must have been among the first to forget that Laura Keene was
on a major twitch this year, but now I can cheer her on from the comfort
of home as she dares the cold winds and mud of northern Alaska; already
she has set a record, and *three months* remain...

Subject: Saturday Migrant Movement at Headlands & LaDue Reservoir
Date: Sun Sep 25 2016 6:44 am
From: jcefus AT gmail.com
 
Hello!

Ben Morrison and I set out to check the lakeshore for migrants yesterday (Saturday) as the winds were blowing from the NE and provided an opportunity for movement across Lake Erie. At Headlands Dunes SP (Lake Co.) we had many migrants as we spent over 4 hours checking the area. Notables included Winter Wrens, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Brown Creepers, a nice variety of Warblers (14 species), Lincoln’s Sparrows, Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, Red-breasted Nuthatches, Gray-cheeked and Swainson’s Thrushes, Blue-headed Vireo, and White-throated Sparrows. The complete list is below.

We then headed over Wake Robin Trail to see if there was anything going on there. It was very quiet with one possible, but quite elusive Marsh Wren. The only seen sparrow was a Song Sparrow, but that will surely change in the coming weeks. The phragmites control program is definitely well under way.

We decided to finish the day at LaDue Reservoir (Geauga Co.) to get another look at the Sabine’s Gull, which seems to think it’s a shorebird, and also check the area for other migrants and shorebirds. We connected with Dick Hoopes at the Sabine’s spot and then the three of us headed out to check other parts of the lake. We walked out from the boat launch and got nice looks at Common, Forster’s, and a Caspian Tern on the spit with the Ring-billed Gulls. We had American Golden Plover, Black-bellied Plovers, and Semi-palmated Plovers, as well as a White-rumped Sandpiper, which was a nice find. Our Warbler count (6 Sp.) was much lower than Headlands, but we had a great time. The complete checklist is also below.

All in all it was, by our lights, a perfect day of birding with seasonal temperatures, a nice cool breeze, and hours spent walking trails and shorelines slowly looking for birds. We saw several birders out enjoying the day like us. Ohio birding at it’s autumn finest.

Happy birding!

At about 6:30 this evening, I watched a female Merlin fly east across St.
Rt 45 and then fly back and forth across the grass at Kent State Trumbull
in Champion. I was en route to a destination, so I couldn't take time to
watch where it was heading after that.

I'm at the Lorain Impound and there are tons of cool birds here currently.
A Northern Harrier just came over the fragmities and dashed into them,
probably hunting a rail of some kind. Other birds include Green Heron, Am.
Coot, N. Shoveler, Mallard, Am. Black Duck, both teal, Canada Goose,
Pied-billed Grebe, Killdeer and more!

 I was at Villa Angela/Wildwood Parks 9/23 from 10am o 1:30pm.  There weren't a lot of new migrants and I only had six species of warblers:  Magnolia 4, Blackpoll 2, Black-and-White 1, Redstart, Ovenbird 1, Common Yellowthroat 1--- Had one Brown Thrasher, three juvenile Black-crowned Night-Herons in Wildwood, Swainson's Thrush 4, and 2 or 3 Red-breasted Nuthatches (1 near mobile home park fence in tall pine and 2 first seen by Mark Anderson near bathhouse) and approx. 17 Chimney Swifts near Lakeshore Blvd. ---------------But today (9/24) things were different - I was there from 9:45 to 12:20pm. It was windy so the warblers were dive bombing into trees and were hard to find-only found five species warblers: Nashville 1, Magnolia 2, Blackpoll 1, Redstart 1, Wilson's 1. ----But I had six new species today---Golden-crowned Kinglets ~ 8 mostly in Villa Angela near lake, Ruby-crowned Kinglets 9-10 (both parks-some along creek in Wildwood near willow over creek, White-throated Sparrows ~ 20 throughout both parks, Swamp Sparrow 1, Brown Creeper 2, Winter Wrens 4 (3VA-1WW). Also 3 Brown Thrashers, and (4) juvenile Black-crowned Night-Herons in Wildwood in willow over creek, Swainson's Thrush 6.
Also, at Sims Park 9/23 had one Red-breasted Nuthatch and about 25 Chimney Swifts-

Subject: Sabine's Gull update
Date: Sat Sep 24 2016 14:44 pm
From: bestdan AT windstream.net
 
Juvenile Sabine’s gull still there for close range viewing this afternoon.  Most notable is that its shoreline foraging behavior is quite sandpiper-like.  I saw it in the company of a golden plover, lesser yellowlegs and killdeer.  Other gravel bar birds on LaDue’s west shore along Valley Road included:  a black-bellied plover, a Baird’s sandpiper, a couple of least sandpipers, another lesser yellowlegs or two, several killdeers and a few dozen ring-billed gulls.  I apparently missed the terns.  A few great blue herons, lots of Canada geese and several juvenile bald eagles.  
Beautiful weather and some very happy birders.

Subject: Interesting bird reported at Leesville Lake, Carroll County yesterday
Date: Sat Sep 24 2016 8:24 am
From: stefanminnig AT hotmail.com
 
Hey all,


A friend of mine reported seeing a strange bird down at Leesville Lake, near South Fork Marina in Carroll County yesterday morning. By his description, he seemed fairly certain it was an Anhingha. Just to clarify, I asked if it may be a Double-Crested Cormorant, as they appear somewhat similar to an untrained eye (my friend has some experience in birds, but more in yard birds). He stated that there was no hook to the bill and had a long skinny neck, which was the only part sticking out of the water. If anyone is in the area, it may be looking into.

From: robthorn AT earthlink.net
 
I hit these adjoining areas in Westerville (NE of Columbus) on successive afternoons, and was still able to find some interesting birds despite the unseasonable heat.  It definitely helped to stay around the shade, as that's where most of the interesting birds were found.  At Hoover, I visited the Nature Trail and the area below the dam; I walked the forest trails at Inniswood.  Notables included:

Red-headed Woodpeckers - a likely family group (3 adults, 1 Juvie) were enjoying acorns at Inniswood
Red-br.Nuthatch - 1 was around the conifers at Inniswood
Flycatchers - a few WoodPewees were still along the Hoover Nature Trail; 2 Phoebes were below the dam
Vireos - a Blue-headed was on the Nature Trail, while Red-eyed were there and at Inniswood
Thrushes - single Swainson's were below the dam and at Inniswood
Mimids - Catbirds were at all 3 spots, while a Thrasher was in the overgrown prairie along the Nature Trail
Warblers - scarce, but diversity OK. List included Nashville, Magnolia, Cape May, Black-thr.Greens, Blackpolls, Black&White, Redstarts, Hooded (1 at Inniswood)

Add golden plover to the growing list of shorebirds that have
showed up at LaDue Reservoir in the last week or so.

I found three, in convenient proximity to there black bellied plovers.
A nice study in the differences and similarities. But, when doubt
still lingers, just wait till they fly and check out the underwing pattern.

After my earlier post today, I saw a Red-Breasted Nuthatch in our spruce tree.

I was hearing quite a few nuthatches this morning. However, this is the only one that I saw, so I don't know how many were red-breasted.

 Birded the Brambleside Trail this morning from 10 a.m. to noon.  Numbers of thrushes, catbirds, and warblers down considerably -- only had a couple Nashville warblers, still Philadelphia vireo (perhaps 3) and a red-eyed vireo.  Most interesting sighting was a flock of meadowlarks that flushed up from the edge of the river into the restricted grassland area.

Date: Fri Sep 23 2016 10:21 am
From: jcefus AT gmail.com
 
The Sabine's Gull put on a nice show this morning.  When I arrived around 8, it was flying a bit south of its previously reported spot.  It flew a bit north to the area of the large cottonwood tree, but was obscured on the shore between those spots, so I walked about 50' out onto the shoreline to get a better scope angle.  Soon after that, it flew closer to me and foraged like a shorebird a bit, then was flushed further north by an eagle.  When I left, it was at the next bay north of the cottonwood feeding like a shorebird the entire time it was there.  It was still there when I left.  2 Black-bellied Plovers dropped in for a few minutes as well.  Great bird and Ohio life bird #310 for me.  Thanks Dick Hoopes!

I observed the bird just after 8 am.  I had to walk a very short distance on to the shore line to see it foraging on the west shore a bit south of the cottonwood tree on Valley Rd.  As Matt said, there was no need to walk any further out than the 50' I did to get a nice, diagnostic look.

September 26th: "Celebrate Ohio's Birds, Bees and Other Pollinators" - Marci
Lininger, USFWS Wildlife Biologist, and Jennifer Windus, retired ODNR



There are numerous places throughout the state of Ohio that can become
an oasis for Monarchs and other pollinators. It may be in your backyard
garden, at your school, church or place of business. The potential is great
and opportunities exist almost everywhere. From big to small these projects
have the potential to help reverse the decline in Monarch and other
pollinator populations.

Schools, youth and community groups, businesses, and state and local
governments can engage in planting native milkweed and other native plant
species, creating Monarch/pollinator habitat along roadsides, rights of way,
and other public and private lands. By enlisting a broad group of partners,
from school children to CEOs, we will build a connected conservation
constituency. It will take all of us working together, doing "all we can,
where we can" to achieve our goal of providing pollinator habitat across the
state of Ohio.

Marci Lininger is a graduate of the Masters of Environment and Natural
Resources program at The Ohio State University. She currently works for the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a Biologist and transportation liaison.
Marci has studied the use and implementation of wildlife crossings in Ohio
for the last five years including the use of strategic roadside habitats
that enhance use and crossing capabilities. In addition to her regular
duties as a transportation liaison, Marci coordinates the Ohio Pollinator
Habitat Initiative, which is a statewide network of partners who work to
increase pollinator awareness and hands-on habitat creation throughout the
state. Marci is also a college instructor educating students in the fields
of environmental science, ecology and transportation ecology research.



Jennifer Windus worked at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources for
31 years, retiring in 2014. She spent 18 years in Natural Areas and
Preserves and 13 years in Wildlife. She keeps busy with four different
Boards now - Ohio Invasive Plants Council (President), Ohio Natural Areas
and Preserves Association (Vice-President), Ohio Prescribed Fire Council
(Chair), and Crane Hollow, Inc. (Vice-President). She also volunteers with
the USFWS and the Division of Natural Areas and Preserves.



October 24th: - "The Deceptive Beauty of Hawaii; Birds Both Native and
Introduced" - Dr. Richard Bradley and Amy Tovar.



November 14th: "Common Ground Across Diverse Groups Makes a Difference" -

Date: Thu Sep 22 2016 21:30 pm
From: mmvalencic AT roadrunner.com
 
Reports today confirm the Sabine's Gull remains at LaDue.  This could be a
big weekend for visitors. PLEASE REMEMBER TO RESPECT THE BIRDS SPACE SO IT
REMAINS CLOSE FOR ALL TO SEE. Recent activity by birders walking toward the
bird and kayakers floating too close have cause all the gulls, terns,
shorebirds and Sabine's to seek peace on gravel bars far from shore. No one
gets good views when that happens.



If you are wondering if the trip to Ladue is worth the drive, consider the
following.



It has been 5 days since the Sabine's was identified by Dick Hoopes and
Kelly Kozlowski. In that time birders have spent many hours along Valley
Road (remember to look on both sides of the road) and on the 'mud' north of
the boathouse. Here's what they found:



* 30 checklists have been submitted (maybe more since there is a
delay accepting rare species) some with excellent pictures of the Sabine's
Gull

* 78 species of birds have been documented

* 7 Caspian and 1 Forster's Tern

* 6 species of raptors (7 Eagles, Red-shouldered, Red-tailed, 2
Merlin from same tree, Osprey and N. Harrier)

* 7 species of warblers (Bay-breasted, Blackpoll, Palm, Yellow, Cape
May, Yellow-rumped, Black-throated Green)

* 7 species of ducks (Mallard, A. Wigeon, Ruddy, Shoveler,
Green-winged Teal, Wood Duck, Hooded Merganser)

* 12 species of shorebirds (Stilt, Pectoral, Spotted, Solitary,
Least and Semi-palmated SP, Black-bellied and Semi-palmated Plover, Greater
and Lesser Yellowlegs, Killdeer, Sanderling)

* And the ever-present, rare and elusive Canada Goose!



Enjoy the weekend,

From: hthomas.bartlett AT gmail.com
 
Tom Behlen, Shane Roberts, Paula, and I conducted the 19th September
Monthly Survey yesterday. The 19 year average is 72 species and we
observed 73 species. However the 19 year average of total individuals is
4,876 individuals and we only observed 2980. Weather was beautiful.
Highlights were numerous warbler species, although we missed several

Subject: 2016 Winter Finch Forecast
Date: Thu Sep 22 2016 16:37 pm
From: semillama AT gmail.com
 
Ron Pittaway's annual Winter Finch Forecast is available, and it contains
some information of interest to Ohio birders...

http://www.jeaniron.ca/2016/fi...

In short, while it may not be a big irruption year, this winter we will
want to keep our eyes peeled for crossbills, siskins, and purple finches.
In addition, if redpolls stage a southern movement, they will likely show
up here as well.

Good birding,
Andy Sewell
Columbus

Subject: Looking for Research Locations: Scioto River South of Columbus
Date: Thu Sep 22 2016 10:28 am
From: blakemathys AT hotmail.com
 
I am starting a collaboration with a research lab at Ohio State, and I need to identify some possible bird banding sites in the Scioto River Watershed south of the Jackson Pike Wastewater Treatment Plant (which is in south Columbus). The locations don't necessarily need to be right on the river (although it's okay if they are), but need to have either a large number or a good diversity (or both) of songbirds that could be captured using mist nets. The sampling we're doing is not harmful and all birds will be banded and released. I can obtain permission from landowners, I'm just looking for some ideas from those of you who are more familiar with this area, and could suggest parks, homeowners with birdfeeders, agricultural sites (such as grain elevators), and so forth which might be good study locations. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to email me (it's probably best to reply off-list). Thank you,

Blake Mathys

Subject: Sabine's Gull Update
Date: Wed Sep 21 2016 18:12 pm
From: PlanteSV AT cdmsmith.com
 
At 6:45 PM the Sabine's gull at LaDue Reservoir (Geauga County) flew right to left out over the water past the pull-off described earlier as Lone Tree (single cottonwood, public fishing sign). It landed near the north end of the reservoir relatively far out on the water. It was by itself.

Subject: Lawrence Woods Red-headed Woodpeckerorama
Date: Wed Sep 21 2016 18:07 pm
From: sjlarue1 AT gmail.com
 
Every time I go to the pond at Lawrence Woods, I see more Red-headed
Woodpeckers. Today there were 14 both at the pond and along the East and
North side. Both adult and juvi.
I also had 4 Barred Owls calling. One close to the NE corner, three
calling from farther out one of those three had a high call.

A few Warblers are filtering through. Most are around the edges. Last
weekend I had an Orange-crowned Warbler at the entrance gate...first one
for me there.

If you still need Red-headed Woodpeckers, Lawrence will give it to you in
spades. :-D

Happy Birding and God bless!

Subject: Sabine's Gull update Wednesday morning.
Date: Wed Sep 21 2016 9:22 am
From: billwhan AT columbus.rr.com
 
I don't use it all that often, but I checked on reports of Sabine's gull
in the US (you can search in the ABA's Birding News for species and
other things in titles) over the past 48 hours and found reports of
Sabine's gulls in the following places: Wisconsin, Nebraska, Missouri,
Nevada, Colorado, Minnesota, Illinois, Arizona, Massachusetts,
California, Kansas, Montana, and of course Ohio.
This is an Arctic bird we see only irregularly in migrations, and the
pattern seems to be that a few of them, on their way from the high
Arctic (n. Canada & Russia, Greenland) to winter at sea even into the
southern hemisphere, move overland through the eastern US. Olsen &
Larsson calls it "distinctive but mainly observed in hard onshore
winds." It seems that birds--often juveniles--that move overland insist
upon stops at lakes along the way. I don't know if the numbers of this
remote nester are higher than normal this year, or only if more birders
are recognizing and reporting them, but they are pretty distinctive.
Worth keeping an eye out...

Date: Wed Sep 21 2016 7:01 am
From: mmvalencic AT roadrunner.com
 
Sabine's Gull remains at LaDue Reservoir in Geauga County on Valley Road. Observe from the pulloff known as "Lone Tree" where there is a single Cottonwood tree near the guardrail bearing a yellow sign stating 'Fishing Public Access'. 

Please watch from the road. Reports have come to me about binocular-bearing people ( birders??) walking toward the gull flock causing them to spook& leave. If they settle on one of the gravel bars farther from shore only those with scopes will be able to see it.

Thanks,

Matt Valencic

From: benbovas AT gmail.com
 
This morning in the pre-dawn, still warm enough for the windows to be open
for the night, we were lying in bed contemplating getting up. Jane heard it
first, hooting in the distance. "There's the owl!" she remarked. It was a
perfect night for it, the bright moon waning gibbous, flooding the
farmyard, fields and forest with soft light. The call was persistent and
distinct, although faint and distant... first of the season. Jane remarked
further, "It's great to live so close to nature."

Life is good.
