Subject: Snowy Egret at New Russia Township Nature Preserve in Lorain County
Date: Fri May 6 2016 9:32 am
From: femme.metal AT gmail.com
 
Got a great look at a Snowy Egret at the pond/lake at New Russia Township
Nature Preserve on Butternut Ridge Road, near the corner with Rt. 58 on the
north side of Oberlin, just before 10 am this morning.

Also saw first of year (for me) Eastern Kingbirds and baby Killdeer running
around at the side of the drive. Further down Butternut, near the landfill,
baby Killdeer were IN the road. Keep an eye out!

Happy Birding!
Kristen

Subject: Upland Sandpipers in Ashtabula County...YES!
Date: Fri May 6 2016 9:17 am
From: sjlarue1 AT gmail.com
 
I was able to find the Upland Sandpipers that were reported by Jim earlier
this week. True to the post, they were perched atop telephone poles when I
got there and stayed for a bit before flying to the back of the farm
field. I heard the two mentioned before plus I think a third, but I
couldn't locate, so I didn't count it. I'll leave it up to local
birders/eBirders if they want to make it a hot spot. Other good bird was
Bobolinks...which made it difficult to hear the Sandpipers. :-D

List with link to online list below which includes a photo of my screen
showing one of the birds.

Happy birding and God bless,

Subject: North Coast Open -- Big Day Competition -- May 20-21
Date: Fri May 6 2016 5:50 am
From: mattkemp04 AT gmail.com
 
The Toledo Naturalists' Association will host the 22nd annual North Coast
Open birding competition this year on May 20 and 21. The competition
covers Lucas, Wood, Ottawa, Sandusky, and Erie Counties, which collectively
have many of the top birding sites in the state: the Oak Openings, Magee
Marsh, Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, Metzger Marsh, Maumee Bay State
Park, Pickerel Creek, Pipe Creek, and Sheldon Marsh, among many others.

If you're looking for a cure for the Biggest Week hangover/withdrawal, or
just need another excuse to get back out to the lakeshore in May, this is
it! Breeders should all be back on territory, migrants should still be
plentiful, and this is prime time for goodies like Connecticut Warbler and
Olive-sided Flycatcher.

Teams compete in a variety of divisions: Junior, Senior, Open, Freestyle
(ideal for families with little kids), and Human-Powered. The overall
winner is awarded the prestigious Peregrine Cup. The competition runs from
7pm May 20 to 7pm May 21. Bird all night or grab a few hours of sleep
before the dawn chorus hits. Teams must turn in their lists at the finish
line at 7pm on Saturday, which this year is at Tony Packo's in East
Toledo.

See the "Local Birding" tab on the TNA website (toledonaturalist.org) for
rules, registration, and past results. Note that the rules vary slightly
from traditional ABA Big Day rules (e.g., everyone on the team must
see/hear every bird; no broadcast of tapes/recordings). There is no fee to
participate.

Feel free to email me with any questions.

Cheers,

Matt Kemp

Subject: Western Tanager
Date: Thu May 5 2016 21:05 pm
From: emullholand AT careyevs.org
 
So I have been working on the report for the Records Committee on the
Upper Sandusky Western tanager, and I am finding some interesting
information. First, a WT was in Pa for the last 5 months (Nov to
April). It left PA on April 17. A WT arrived in Toledo on April 26
(300 mile west). A WT arrives in Upper (70 miles south) on April 27.
The PA bird was starting to molt when last photographed on April
14th. The Toledo and Upper bird were fully molted 10 days later. That
is cool whatever the real story is! I'm doing some more research. Can
the Gordon's or Rosenberg's of Toledo please e-mail me a specific
timeline or details and some pictures if possible. The e-bird pics
were good but I'm not sure if there are more or if it is OK to use
them. Thanks in advance! By the way the bird was still there today.
What a treat!

Another crazy story about all this. My friend who isn't a birder
overheard the homeowners talking about the bird at a restaurant. He
asked them about it and said he knew someone who would know what it
is. He sent me a picture of the bird. I thought he was playing a
prank. I immediately called him back. He put the homeowner on and I
got the details. The homeowners are not birders but thought they had
figured out what it was. If my friend hadnt butted in or he hadnt
contacted me. The bird would likely have remained a neighborhood
novelty instead of an Ohio record, and life bird for many. How cool!
Have a great migration.

Subject: New Ohio shared bird reporting Hotspots and Birding Drives active
Date: Thu May 5 2016 8:53 am
From: ken.ostermiller AT gmail.com
 


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

http://ohioebirdhotspots.wikis...



New: Here is a tip on how to get a “life list” of all the birds you have
reported to eBird at a personal location, such as your backyard.

http://ohioebirdhotspots.wikispaces.com/Location+Life+List



Several new Ohio Birding Drives have been added.

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

Birding drives have been developed for some of Ohio’s “under birded” areas,
hoping to encourage birders to visit these counties when they are traveling
in Ohio. There are 28 Ohio counties with fewer than 1000 eBird checklists
submitted. Here are the newest birding drives. There are now birding drives
for 18 of these 28 “under birded” counties.



Brown County Birding Drive

the Belmont Soil and Water Conservation District.)

Leesville Lake Wildlife Area--OH-164 and Desert Rd.

http://ohioebirdhotspots.wikispaces.com/Leesville+Lake+Wildlife+Area--OH-164+and+Desert+Road



Coshocton County

The hotspots in the Woodbury Wildlife Area have been re-named to use road
names, rather than areas of the wildlife area. A new hotspot suggestion
also south of OH-541 prompted this change.

Woodbury Wildlife Area--Co. Rd. 4 (new)

Woodbury Wildlife Area--Co. Rd. 286 (formerly Southeast, South of OH-541)

Woodbury Wildlife Area--Township Highway 302 (formerly Central, North of
OH-541)

Woodbury Wildlife Area--Township Rd. 56 and Township Rd. 58 (formerly
Northwest)

Date: Wed May 4 2016 18:49 pm
From: schroeder.m.d AT gmail.com
 
More on the birds and the bees: I posted around 4:00 this afternoon about a female Summer Tanager at our bee hives. I left the house for an appointment and returned about 7:30, and she is still hanging out feasting on bees. Interestingly, there is a male Cardinal who doesn't like her in his patch, apparently. So whenever she flies in to grab a bee, he swoops in from another direction and chases her away. She hides in a Witch Hazel bush until all is quiet, and then comes back for more.

Hi all,

I spent the morning volunteering in the preparatives for the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes plant sale this Saturday morning. New birds heard (not seen) there this morning were Baltimore Oriole and Great Crested Flycatcher. Both were independently heard by other people, but none of us saw them.

Best wishes,

Date: Wed May 4 2016 16:51 pm
From: mmvalencic AT roadrunner.com
 
Sometimes you are lucky enough to be taking a picture when something
interesting happens. Four Rose-breasted Grosbeak's were close enough for
some good pics this morning so I obliged them. However, this 'double date'
turned ugly fast! First one female attacked the other. The boys looked on
for a short while but soon one of them decided to get into the fray.
Eventually all four were tangled together. No damage seemed to be done to
anyone but it sure made for interesting pics. Check out Flickr for peek at
the action https://www.flickr.com/photos/...

Almost missed a Great-crested Flycatcher in our tiny front yard this
afternoon. Yesterday an Ovenbird showed up in back. My neighbor Randy
Rogers spied a Black-billed Cuckoo a few days ago, evidently eating tent
caterpillars in an unkempt yard in our subdivision.

Subject: New Yard Bird Suburban Columbus
Date: Wed May 4 2016 15:11 pm
From: schroeder.m.d AT gmail.com
 
My wife and I are beekeepers. I happened to be watching our bees with my binos, through my family room window, when an interesting (and beautiful) bird dropped onto the ground in front of one of the hives. She snatched a bee and flew to a nearby shrub. She then flew into an oak tree right in front of my window and I got a great look: Female Summer Tanager--new yard bird for us.  I checked pictures in a couple of field guides and ran across this comment in the Stokes Summer Tanager entry: "Fond of eating bees and wasps, and will raid their nests." This one must have read the book.

Subject: Bike path birding in Athens, SE Ohio
Date: Wed May 4 2016 13:35 pm
From: stefan AT gleissberg.org
 
I had a productive birding morning along the bike path in Athens between Currier Street and Armitage Road. I checked the old canal there in hopes for Prothonotary Warbler, without success. Instead, I found (and managed to photograph) a Wilsons Warbler there. There was also a Northern Watertrush, a Palm Warbler, and a Yellow-rumped Warbler. A male Wood Duck was on the water and a Green Heron (my first-of year) was in the trees. I wondered if both may be nesting there. On the opposite side of the path I had a singing Lincolns Sparrow. 

Half way along the mile or so of bike path, I could hear a Yellow-breasted Chat singing from behind the railroad tracks. They have been there in previous years. There were severeal Yellow Warblers and Common Yellowthroats, one gorgeous male Magnolia Warbler, and several singing White-eyed Vireos and Indigo Buntings. I had two singing Orchard Orioles, both were 1st summer males which are yellow, not chestnut, with a black face marking.

All 56 species seen (and some pictures) are listed here:

Spring birding is awesome!

Subject: More regional checklists
Date: Wed May 4 2016 10:56 am
From: billwhan AT columbus.rr.com
 
I found some more checklists, and also some lists of lists, so here they
are:

Baker, W. C. Breeding birds of Columbiana County. 1934
MacCoughey, V. The Birds of Darke County, Ohio. 1911
Field, I. The Birds of Licking County. 1903,
Henninger, W. A Preliminary List of the Birds of Middle and
Southern Ohio. 1902.
Hicks, 1934. The Breeding Birds of Muskingum COunty, Ohio. 1934
Jones, L. 1902. The Summer Birds of the Lake Erie Islands. 1902
Langdon, F. A Revised list of Cincinnati Birds. 1879.
Wharram, S. A List of the birds of Ashtabula County. 1925.
West, R. Summer Resident Birds of Belmont County, Ohio. 1935.
Oberholser, H. List of the Birds of Wayne County, Ohio 1935. (see the
work on the previous list)
Price,H. The Summer Birds of Northwestern Ohio. 1935.
West, R. Harrison County, Summer residents and visitants. 1935.
These are some of the rarer checklists, that you may have to seek
on the internet or in a good library; frankly, I was surprised to find
how many areas in Ohio have gotten this kind of treatment, and how
different the older ones are from today's.

Hi,

As Bill notes these publications are very useful.

As someone interested in the occurrence and ecology of the avafauna of the
Cleveland region I find myself constantly checking both the first edition
of "Birds of the Cleveland Region" (Williams) and the 4th edition (Rosche)

Looking at the differences over time can be especially instructive.

Has anyone seen or heard the fish crows that have been around the Rockside Road/Turney Road intersection recently?
(This is in Cuyahoga County for other birders.)

I checked the eBird Species map. No recent reports have been entered. But, I know not everyone does eBird.

Any updates would be appreciated. I may be in that area tomorrow or Friday.

Subject: Carroll Co. Warblers
Date: Wed May 4 2016 6:17 am
From: jcefus AT gmail.com
 
We had a 22 species of warblers yesterday morning in Carroll County.  Most of these we seen in areas east of Wattsville in East-Central Carroll on a high point at the intersection of Orlon Rd. NE and Ocelot Rd. NE.  I believe if we had the whole day available to us with a focus primarily on just seeing how many warblers we could find we may have been able to get over 25 species, but 22 is a pretty great number for inland Ohio with so many widely dispersed birds due to a lack of favorable migration conditions.  

Ovenbird
Louisiana Waterthrush
Blue-winged Warbler
Black-and-white Warbler
Tennessee Warbler
Orange-crowned Warbler (singing and seen)
Nashville Warbler
Kentucky Warbler
Common Yellowthroat
Hooded Warbler
American Redstart
Cerulean Warbler
Northern Parula
Magnolia Warbler
Yellow Warbler
Black-throated Blue Warbler (aka the Tuxedo Warbler)
Palm Warbler
Pine Warbler
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Prairie Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
Yellow-breasted Chat (at Fargo Rd. in western Carroll).

We also had FOY Veery, Least Flycatcher, and Eastern Wood Peewee.

Subject: A good day birding with Tanager bookends. :-D
Date: Tue May 3 2016 20:37 pm
From: sjlarue1 AT gmail.com
 
Greetings!

I played hooky from work...(which I'm glad I did cause I had a flat tire
half way to Upper Sandusky.) I would say that I started birding at Killdeer
Plains...but the shorebird birding was dismal. So I started birding for the
day up at Upper (Sandusky) getting the Western Tanager. :-D The owner of
the house came out a talked with us for a while and as if on cue, it just
appeared right in front of our eyes. She had some pretty good yard birds
all together. Her yard count list I made is a high count feeder watch.

I then piddled around Killdeer Plains Pond 30 for a bit with Ron Sempier
and John Games.

Then headed over to Lawrence Woods for some quiet weekday birding...and as
I was leaving, I got point blank 15 feet away Magee Marsh-esque views of a
pair of Scarlet Tanagers...at one point, one flew right in front of me, so
close I could reach out and grab it. :-D Somehow I missed Greg Miller and
his crew coming in, but they eventually passed me as we were making my way
out..I go reeeealy slow when I go through those woods. :-D they got the
Boblinks I reported last time, and I got the Veery they found
today...win/win. :-D I had 75 species for the day when I left Lawrence
Woods and added 5 more by the time I got home...nice day all around. :-D

Lists of the majors below.

Happy birding and God bless!
