Date: Wed May 6 2015 9:59 am
From: cdoveracker AT woh.rr.com
 
We birded at Buck Creek State Park this morning and found lots of birds
including many warblers. The most interesting bird was a Bell's Vireo we
found. Off Croft Road is a road to the Corps of Engineers area. Just after
you get on this road there is a road to the left that is only open a short
ways. The bird was along this road before you get to the woods and that sign
that says no cars beyond this point. We first heard it on the west side of
the road but it flew to the east side of the road after a few minutes.

Subject: Big Island Wildlife Area

From: sjlarue1 AT gmail.com
 
Well, I decided to run away from the rain, and get home to check out how
the migration is turning over here at Big Island.
I left Magee with a total of 101 species, and picked up a Cooper's Hawk as
I left Oak Harbor. so 102 for the day and two halves. Never got the
Orange-crowned...oh well MAYBE Saturday. :-D I will be at the boardwalk
from 5 till 5ish...probably on the perch for most of it just hanging out
and pointing out birds for those who come up...so if you are around...

But on to today, It was great to get home and see what is left and what is
coming into Big Island.

First to hear a Prothonotary Warbler singing out was music to my ear, then
followed by a pair of Yellow-throated Vireos. Both of those being backed
up by the Marsh Wrens, Common Gallinule(Moorhen), Soras, and the soft
chuckle of a Least Bittern, the low hoot of a Barred Owl, made for a quite
pleasant symphony for the ears.

A couple of pics of the Prothonotary Warbler here should be the last two of
the album.:

http://www.sjlarue.com/p803819...

Thursday I will be heading to Lawrence Woods to check on the Cerulean
Warblers...hopefully they will be heading in soon...plus there should be
some other migrants there as well.

Anyhew, have a great rest of the week.

Happy Birding, and God Bless!

Subject: MinervaPark,5-05: hawks,siskins
Date: Tue May 5 2015 20:49 pm
From: robthorn AT earthlink.net
 
With only a bit of time at lunch today, I walked around Minerva Park, a NE Columbus suburb that represents an 'island' of mature trees, mostly oaks remaining from the area's days as an amusement park.  Not surprisingly, the area had plenty of singing migrants, and in a half hour I was able to dig up:

Cooper's Hawk - 1, likely a resident, since they've nested here for many years
Red-shouldered Hawk - a calling bird. This species has expanded into many Columbus neighborhoods in the past 2 years.
Gr.Crested Flycatchers - 2, foraging in leafing-out oaks
Wood Thrush - 1-2, which is surprising here given the lack of mature forest with undergrowth
Pine Siskins - 3-4, in the alders around Minerva Lake, a spot that often hosts them in winter
Warblers - 7 species, including Yellow, Nashville (4), Tennessee (2), Bl-thr.Green (6), Chesnut-sided (2), Yellow-rumped (12), and Black&White (2)
Other migrants - Rose-br.Grosbeak, Baltimore Oriole, White-thr.Sparrows (5)

The number of Pine Siskins in our backyard kept increasing last week until we reached a total of 16 on Friday the 1st.  The next day they were all gone.  None the next 3 days.  Suddenly today we have 23 at our feeders, new ones we assume.  Also, male and female Rose-breasted Grosbeaks made an appearance yesterday.  Female hanging around; haven't seen the male today.  White-crowned and Chipping, as well as the usual White-throated Sparrows.
Heading to Magee Marsh Thursday AM.  Save some warblers for us.

Subject: Blackhand Gorge State Nature preserve, Licking Cty
Date: Tue May 5 2015 19:57 pm
From: cbombaci AT att.net
 
 Leslie Sours, Jenny Bowman and I birded at the Blackhand Gorge State Nature Preserve in Licking County today. Conditions started as mostly cloudy but improved to sunny by the days end, as did our spirits. We tallied 83 species while basically birding only the eastern parts of the preserve. Some of the species present at the nature preserve were:
Green Heron at the Button Bush Swamp. Fly over of 3 Great Blue Herons.
Numerous Turkey Vultures but no sign of a Black Vulture.
Waterfowl were limited to a few Canada Geese, Mallards and Wood Ducks.
Hawks include single Red-tailed and Cooper's and some Red-shouldered Hawks that put on an aerial show.
Shorebirds were limited to a sole Spotted Sandpiper.
Both Black-billed and Yellow-billed Cuckoos. One Black-billed Cuckoo joined us for lunch landing in a nearby tree as we ate.
Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were fairly common. We observed one especially aggressive male drive a White-throated Sparrow away from the Buckeye tree blossom it was feeding at.
We had all the woodpeckers except for Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
Flycatchers were sparse. We only found Acadian, Eastern Phoebe, Great Crested and Eastern Kingbird. This group of birds seem to be slow to arrive this spring.
Vireos included White-eyed (they seemed to be everywhere today), Blue-headed, Warbling and Red-eyed.
Thrushes were limited to Wood and Swainson's.
The only mimics were Gray Catbirds.
Cedar Waxwings. Here is a species I'm use to finding in large flocks. We only saw 3, all together in a Sycamore tree.
Wood warblers. This group is filled with the prize most birders seek during migration. We were able to find 19 species today. They included Blue-winged (4), Golden-winged (1), Tennessee (1), Northern Parula (14), Yellow (12), Chestnut-sided (12), Black-throated Blue (6), Yellow-rumped (25+), Black-throated Green (4), Yellow-throated (4), Prairie (4), Palm (2), Cerulean (21 - they put on quite a show for us), Worm-eating (1), Ovenbird (3), Louisiana Waterthrush (3), Kentucky (4), Common Yellowthroat (5) and Hooded (6).
Both Scarlet and Summer Tanagers. Stunning colors.
Eastern Towhees were very abundant.
Rose-breasted Grosbeaks and Indigo Buntings.
Both Orchard and Baltimore Orioles.

An enjoyable day shared with friends
 for Leslie, Jenny and myself,Charlie Bombaci

There are currently about a dozen Pine Siskins hanging around my yard in
Gahanna (northeast Columbus). They seem to be temporarily frightened by
our (vocal) nesting pair of Red-shouldered Hawks, but end up circling back
after a bit.

Good birding,

Subject: Sunday May 10 Bird Walk in Athens, SE Ohio
Date: Tue May 5 2015 15:17 pm
From: stefan AT gleissberg.org
 
Sunday, 10 May 2015
Morning walk on The Ridges
Time: 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Location: on the steps of the Ridges Auditorium on W Circle Drive in Athens, OH
The #1 birding location around Athens! We look for arriving warblers, songbirds, and more. Maximum walking distance: 2 miles round trip. Much of the walk is level, but there is an initial climb on steps and a road, and the trail through the woods (if we get that far) includes some moderately steep climbs and descents. Hiking shoes or boots with a good tread are recommended in case we do the loop through the woods. Steady rain will cancel the outing, but mist or light drizzle will not. Although the primary focus will be birds, Phil can also identify wildflowers and other plants for those interested. Guide: Phil Cantino (Athens Conservancy), joined by Stefan Gleissberg

Free but limited to 15 participants. Bring your binoculars or borrow from us (provided by Rural Action). For questions and to register, email stefan@gleissberg.org with the subject Bird Walk; a confirmation will be sent back to you.

This event is part of a series of bird walks offered by the Athens Area Birders. Come out this Spring and discover our local bird life! With experienced guides, we explore special areas and habitats to find and learn about their avian inhabitants.

So my grandma found a large feather in or back yard inChampaign Co.
Its brown, with black stripes and a bit white.
I looked at a feather atlas and closes we found was a Long Eared Owl wing
feather.
The feather looked new, but shouldn't Long Eared be almost gone from Ohio?

I'd love some emails for other opinions. :-)

In the little woods at Southdale Park in Kettering - a ruby-crowned kinglet,

So I decided to leave the windows open last night to enjoy some fresh air.
In the middle of the night I began to hear Barred Owl calls. It was every
version of every call. It was from multiple locations. I can't imagine what
a person who didn't realize what that was would think. It lasted for about
30 to 45 minutes. I have a Barred Owl box in the woods but I didn't think
it was active. Hopefully it is. I have regularly head them, but nothing
like that. It was worth being woke up for!

What an awesome day in Ashtabula Harbor! All birds moving from west to east. It started off with a FOY Northern Harrier flying right over me then continued with a stream of Blue Jays that...well it pretty much didn't end. Many groups of 10 to 100 added up to an amazing 1900 (yes 1900!!!) from 7:00a to around noon when things started to slow down for the Jays. 

Other personal highlights between Ashtabula Harbor and Walnut Beach

Lifer! Sandhill Crane flyover and a single Sedge Wren! How awesome!

FOY birds, Northern Harrier, Broad-winged Hawk, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, White-crowned Sparrow, Gray Catbird, Magnolia Warbler, House Wren, Eastern Kingbird, Baltimore Oriole, and finally Warbling Vireo.

Not much warbler diversity but that's OK there were plenty of other birds to check out! Here are my eBird lists for the day. http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S23228822 http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S23228700

Good luck to all this spring!

Subject: Magee Highlights for Monday
Date: Mon May 4 2015 18:32 pm
From: sjlarue1 AT gmail.com
 
Wow! What a Day!

72 species for the Magee boardwalk area. Closer to 80-85 for the day when
you include Metzger Marsh. Still compiling everything, but the best so far
was the last bird I had. #20 Warbler Species for the day. A Lifer
Golden-Winged Warbler...So close I had to back up. :-D (I thought I had it
already, but I was thinking about something else. :-) ) My thanks to
whomever let me know that it was on the beach. definitely a highlight of
the trip.

If anyone sees a Orange-crowned Warbler on the boardwalk tomorrow...come
get me and drag me over to it. :-D It is the only warbler I need that is
normally found in Ohio. I know there are more in fall, but I would like to
get a spring one. :-D

Another highlight was getting fresh batteries from my La Rue Sherpas, (aka
the AP Biology class that happened to go by my house so they picked up my
spare battery that I left behind by accident. :-D ) and hearing that they
had an awesome day as well...I still beat them though. :-D

A few pics of the Golden-winged Warbler can be found here.:

http://www.sjlarue.com/p918720...

I'll post a list of everything on eBird, but needless to say, a lot of a
lot of birds were here today. :-D

Happy Birding, and God Bless!

Subject: Magee area migration Monday
Date: Mon May 4 2015 16:57 pm
From: kenn.kaufman AT gmail.com
 
In northwestern Ohio, in the region of the Lake Erie shoreline centered on
Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, the migration had been very slow up through last
Friday. But over the last three days things have improved considerably.
Today, Monday May 4, was the best day of the spring (so far) for numbers
and variety of migrants in this area - as predicted: see
http://cranecreekbirding.blogs...



Between Metzger Marsh and Magee Marsh Wildlife Areas, at least 27 species
of warblers were reliably reported today, with highlights including
Cerulean and Hooded Warblers at Metzger, and Kentucky, Yellow-throated, and
Golden-winged Warblers at Magee. At Black Swamp Bird Observatory's main
banding station (Navarre Unit of Ottawa NWR, about 5 miles east of Magee,
not open to the public), today also produced 27 warbler species, with
highlights including Orange-crowned, Golden-winged, Cerulean, and Hooded
Warblers, plus Louisiana Waterthrush. Between the two areas, at least 29
warbler species were recorded, an excellent total for this date in May.

The dominant species today were still those typical of the first wave, with
very large numbers of Yellow-rumped Warblers and White-throated Sparrows,
plus good numbers of Palm, Nashville, and Black-throated Green Warblers.
Yellow Warblers also have arrived in force, although many of these are
probably the local breeders. Other warbler species were mostly present in
much smaller numbers. Today also produced notable totals of Scarlet Tanager
and Baltimore Oriole, plus a first influx of Orchard Orioles. The last two
days have seen a big movement of Pine Siskins through the area, with flocks
moving along the lake shore and small groups visiting feeders in the area.

With the wind predicted to shift around to the north tonight, many of these
migrants will probably stay in the general area through the next couple of
days. The forecast calls for rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, but in between
rain showers, the birding could be excellent.

We don't always have time to post anything to the listserve, but for those
who are interested in the Magee region in particular, we try to post
regular predictions at http://cranecreekbirding.blogs...

Anyway - after a slow start, the migration is now definitely in full swing.
It's on! Hope to see you out in the field.

This afternoon the predominant birds were varying shades of brown. The lawn was moving & alive with birds together with the songs of the white-throated and white-crowned sparrows. The red-headed woodpecker was quite a surprise & a first at this cemetery for me.

Subject: Birding this morning at Huffman MetroPark in Montgomery county
Date: Mon May 4 2015 11:59 am
From: jespedal AT sbcglobal.net
 
At Huffman MetroPark near WPAFB in Montgomery County this morning, 8:30 AM - 11:15 AM Walked along the lake from the shelter parking lot to the parking lot at the other end of the lake and back.

FOY  indigo buntings and Baltimore orioles - lots of bothRobins, goldfinch, lots of blue-gray gnatcatchers, 1 great-blue heron flying over, mourning dove, blue jays, cowbirds, 1 Swainson's thrush on the paved path ahead of us, red-bellied woodpeckers, 1 pileated woodpecker, mallards, a few yellow-rumped warblers, 1 white-breasted nuthatch, Canada geese (a few), red-winged blackbirds, 1 great-crested flycatcher, a couple of soaring turkey vultures.
Seen but not positively identified: a bird in a sycamore that was probably a vireo, but could have been a warbler - totally grayish or buff breast and no other distinguishable markers seen. Eating something with enthusiasm, but not vocalizing. What was vocalizing in the same sycamore was what I think was a northern parula. I'm not good at sound birding, but I have heard the parulas sev. times this spring and it was high up in the sycamore, a perfect parula place. Also while there was almost no bird activity on the lake - a few mallards, one goose, I walked up to a spot where I could see the river and saw 1 swallow that flitted by to a place where foliage obscured it before I could get a good id.
Also heard (there are some birds I can identify by sound): Carolina wrens, titmice, a northern cardinal

Subject: new yard arrivals - geauga co.
Date: Mon May 4 2015 8:36 am
From: ingais AT earthlink.net
 
It seems like all the birds arrived together, Sunday and
this Monday morning.

Unusual for my yard, a pair of Red Headed Woodpeckers,
that paused to look at the old snag tree, and made a pass at
mating. (Ive never had them nest here, and assume they are
part of the movement of these birds in the last days.)

Also, a first Baltimore Oriole joined the Orchard Orioles, singing
from the tops of the trees. Yellow warblers, Eastern Kingbirds
(already checking out last years nest site on the power line towers)
and a Scarlet Tanager and Wood Thrush loudly announcing their
arrival from the woods edge.

From: celinalegal AT gmail.com
 
I have had a couple great (for me) days at Scioto Park on U.S. 36 in
Delaware Ohio. Yesterday, I saw a Cat Bird-on the same branch as a
Titmouse, which I thought ironic. An Eastern Blue Bird, Red Breasted
WoodPeckers, and a Baltimore Oriole.


Today was glorious! I saw 3 Black Throated Blue Warblers. 1 Palm Warbler,
3 Black and White Warblers, Several Butterbutt Warblers, A Red Breasted
Grosbeak, 2 Baltimore Oriole (perhaps Orchard Orioles) and a Northern
Flicker. Plus numerous Gold Finches, Cardinals and the usual
suspects---Robins, Mallards, and Canada Geese.



It was a beautiful walk this morning!

Subject: Common Loons at Springfield Lake yesterday
Date: Mon May 4 2015 7:11 am
From: 000000498c6bc993-dmarc-request AT listserv.miamioh.edu
 
Saw a group of four Common Loons early yesterday morning at Springfield Lake.  At first there were only a few sparrows and grackles, then male mallards showed up, then a few ring billed gulls.  Then the loons.  Watched an adult dive and come up with a mouthful of fish, which it daintily ate.  A juvenile was a little bolder, and swam closer, so I got a really good look at him/her.  Two women showed up to fish, so the loons swam away across the lake, and I didn't have clear view any more.

Hi all,

I visited the Edge of Appalchia

preserve
yesterday to do some hiking and birding. I started with the Portman trail
and followed up with The Wilderness trail. I took my time on Portman and
made an effort to find as much as I could. I am just beginning to learn the
Eastern songs so I'm sure I missed a lot. However, the birding was great.
My lists for both locations are below, with multiple pictures included. I
hope to return again soon to hike the other two trails on the preserve.
Good birding.
