Wooster Memorial Park is a 300+ acre wooded park west of Wooster in Wayne
Co. Most of the park is fully wooded with deep ravines, but there are two
sizeable meadow areas. I have done breeding bird surveys there for nearly
10 years. To begin the 2016 census, this morning, from 6:30-11am, I walked
most of the park and tallied the following 32 species and numbers, detected
by sight or sound. Randy Rowe, Wooster

Subject: Scioto Audubon & Grove,5-30: no migrants
From: rob thorn <robthorn AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Mon, 30 May 2016 19:02:13 -0400
Migrants were virtually absent from these two migrant traps along the Scioto 
River south of downtown Columbus today. We spent an hour hiking around Scioto 
Audubon, then tooled down to spend another hour down at Scioto Grove. Both had 
plenty of resident birds, including: 


Great Egrets - at least 2 were hanging around the bay at Scioto Audubon
Spotted Sandpipers - singles were along the river at each park; nesting is 
possible at either 

Osprey - the old impound lot nest is active at Scioto Audubon, with 2 adults 
attending 

Pileated Woodpecker - at least one was near the overlooks at Scioto Grove
Flycatchers - lots of Wood Pewees at both parks; Scioto Audubon also had 3-4 
Willow Flycatchers in the fields north of the GIAC. Both parks also had 1-2 
Great Crested Flycatchers and E.Kingbirds 

Vireos - Scioto Audubon was heavy on the Warbling (5-6), while Scioto Grove 
majored in Red-eyed (5-6) 

Swallows - both parks had good swallow diversity, with Tree, Rough-winged, 
Barn, & Cliff. Scioto Grove also had a few Banks foraging over the river. 

Thrushes - the only ones around were 3-4 singing Wood Thrushes in the riparian 
woods at Scioto Grove 

Mimids - Catbirds were abundant at both parks, while Grove also had a singing 
Brown Thrasher. 

Warblers - both parks had singing Yellow Warblers and Prothonotaries, though 
Grove had 3-4 of the latter. Both parks also had singing Common Yellowthroats 

Tanager - only one Scarlet was singing in the riparian forest at Scioto Grove
Grosbeaks&Buntings - Indigos were common at both sites, and Grove had 2 singing 
Rose-br.Grosbeaks 

Sparrows - Fields were common at Scioto Grove, which also still had a singing 
Vesper Sparrow 

Orioles - a few Baltimores were at both parks, and both also had singing 
Orchard Orioles

2 new yard birds this morning. I had a Rose-breasted Grosbeak singing like 
crazy, then I heard a very loud woodpecker call. I looked out of my window and 
a Pileated was at the top of a snag.

Subject: Hoover Nature preserve, Delaware County
From: Charles Bombaci <cbombaci AT ATT.NET>
Date: Mon, 30 May 2016 00:45:09 +0000
  Today we launched the H.M.S. Hoover for the year's maiden voyage. We 
monitored sections of my Prothonotary Warbler nest box trail up Big Walnut 
Creek and Little Walnut Creek. One of our goals was to look for individuals 
that had been banded both last year and this year and to locate individuals 
that had yet to be banded. Trying to get a correct reading of four colored leg 
bands on a foraging Prothonotary Warbler will test your skills. We located 39 
Prothonotary Warblers, many of which wore our exquisite colored jewelry. We did 
have success in locating some individuals that Dr. Tonra's eager and energetic 
graduate assistants will now try to catch in their mist nets. 

In 2015 forty-seven PROWs were banded and so far in 2016 an additional fifty 
have been mist netted and banded. If you visit the Hoover Nature Preserve look 
for Prothonotary Warblers with their colored leg bands. Also in 2015 
twenty-five individuals had geolocators attached as part of a project to 
monitor their migration movements with the goal to determine their movements to 
and from their breeding and wintering territories. The study will enable 
science to better protect their habitat at both the breeding and wintering 
territories. Loss of habitat is a material factor in the 40 percent decline of 
the species numbers since the 1960's. To date 7 of the 25 geolocators have been 
recovered. 

The day was not restricted to Prothonotary Warblers as we observed a good 
variety of species during our travels. Red-headed Woodpeckers are having 
another banner year as we observed quite a few along both creeks. Green Herons 
were also present in good numbers, but the plum was found during the afternoon 
as we located a nesting pair of Brown Creepers. We watched them bring food to 
the nest site, located under loose bark on an old Cottonwood Tree. You could 
slightly see part of the hammock shaped nest through the opening in the tree 
bark. 

The nesting Bald Eagles are doing well. An adult was at the nest with two 
juveniles.

Subject: Lake Snowden, SE Ohio: Common Gallinule
From: Stefan Gleissberg <stefan AT GLEISSBERG.ORG>
Date: Sat, 28 May 2016 22:53:30 -0400
I was birding the paths south and north of Lake Snowden dam in Athens County 
this morning, with more than 50 species in four and a half hours. 


http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S29951683

A highlight were a Common Gallinule (flagged as rare in eBird) in a small 
patch of reed and willow just as you walk up the grassy path to the dam. I had 
good close looks from the top of the dam, and could see the birds red shield 
and bill with yellow tip, white flank stripe, the giant green feet with widened 
toes that were red at their upper end. 


Another surprise was a Common Loon. It was swimming quite close to the dam, 
apparently avoiding the fisher boats farther out, and allowing good views and 
some pictures. It was not in adult breeding plumage. 


A Willow Flycatcher was making an impression near the parking area at the 
Hocking College Fish Hatchery, singing in plain view from a power line. A 
Double-crested Cormorant flew over. A Purple Martin was repeatedly dropping a 
rather large prey item (maybe a cicada?), then catching it again while flying. 
A singing Yellow-breasted Chat was graciously allowing unobstructed views and 
some pictures. 


Keep birding
Stefan

From: rob thorn <robthorn AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Sat, 28 May 2016 21:07:56 -0400
Lots of singing, but few obvious migrants out in these 2 MetroParks southeast 
of Columbus this morning. I hiked part of the wetlands and the 5-Oaks trail at 
Slate Run, and did the Ridge-Homesite trails loop at Chesnut Ridge, and also 
stopped at several places along Little Walnut Creek (Waterloo, Ashworth Bridge, 
Bareis Preserve). Notable birds included: 


GreenHeron - 1 was in the small wooded pond east of the Slate Run wetland 
parking lot. 

Sandhill Cranes - a pair was at the southern edge of the SlateRun wetlands. 
Others reported a baby with them, but I couldn't confirm this. 

BarredOwl - 1 juvenile calling along the Maple Loop at Slate Run (staff have 
seen 1-2 for a week now) 

AmerKestrel - a pair have set up a territory at Bareis Preserve
Hummingbirds - common for a change, with 1-3 birds at every stop

Flycatchers - WoodPewees abundant, especially at Slate Run; Acadians were 
common only in the forested areas. 4+ Willows were at Bareis. Great Cresteds 
were in many locations 


Vireos - Red-eyed were abundant at Slate Run & ChesnutRidge, while Warbling 
were more common at the Little Walnut Parks. The only Yellow-throated was at 
Chesnut Ridge. 


Thrushes - 2 Swainson's were still lingering at Chesnut Ridge, while Wood 
Thrushes were widespread 

Mimids - singing Brown Thrashers were at Bareis and the Slate Run Wetland

Warblers - Knetuckies were big news, with 4 singing birds at Slate Run and 
another at Chesnut Ridge. Hoodeds were also spread between these 2 parks as 
well. Also had Parula, Yellows, Yellow-throated, and Common Yellowthroats. The 
only possible migrants were AmericanRedstarts at Waterloo and at Slate Run. 3 
Louisiana Waterthrushes were still singing along the ravine creeks on the 5Oaks 
trail at Slate Run. 


Tanagers - only Scarlets, with 2 at SlateRun, 3 at Chesnut Ridge, and 1 at 
Ashworth Bridge 

Buntings,Grosbeaks - singing Rose-br.Grosbeaks were at Bareis and at Chesnut 
Ridge. Indigo Buntings were at many different locations. 

Orioles - Orchards were at many different locations, while the only Baltimores 
were along L.Walnut Creek

It's Saturday, but I've been teaching all day and haven't turned it off
yet...  Andrew... Southern flying squirrels are what you mean rather than
sugar gliders, right?  The sugar gliders are superficially quite similar
looking to our flying squirrels but are marsupials in Australia.

And yes, the flying squirrels are out there in great numbers though rarely
seen.  I know they eat fruit among other things, so nectar does not seem
like much of a stretch.

Invest in a trail cam and you'll find out. We have learned some interesting 
things about night critters out here in the Perry county woods. Have photos of 
a fox taking a dead chicken that I left out to be recycled. Others have gotten 
a bobcat. Maybe it's vampire bats.

I had been wondering where the Common Yellow Throats were. A couple stopped by 
a few weeks ago but didn't stay. We usually have three or four breeding pairs 
near here (Russell). I finally heard one yesterday. I saw one and heard more 
this morning. It is strange to have the Willow Flycatchers back before the 
Yellow Throats. 


Other migrants Friday included a male Wood Duck, a Wood Thrush (h--first one 
that I have heard near here this spring), Cedar Waxwings, Red-Eyed Vireos 
(h--first ones that I have heard near here this spring), Kingbirds, Willow 
Flycatchers, and Dark-Eyed Juncos.

The decline in nighthawk numbers is being noticed everywhere. The fall 
flocks, formerly numerous, are especially pathetic in numbers. Here are 
remarks for central Ohio:
"Spring migrant flocks tend to number in the dozens at best, moving at 
higher altitudes than in fall.  Usually arrives by 5-10 May.  Very early 
local records come from 4/16/1899 (OSUM specimen #882), 4/18/2011 (fide 
M. Skinner) and 4/19/1985 (OC 8(1):23); Trautman (MS OSUM 5/6/1963) 
reported a “large flight” in Columbus 4/26/1963; judging by what he 
writes elsewhere (1940:281) this may have involved ~25 seen during the 
day.  The highest twilight counts of fall movements usually come from 
late August-early September, and include a description of circle-soaring 
by “at least several thousand” over the OSU campus 9/3/1968 (Mueller 
1970), 3000+ on 9/3/1976 (Thomson 1983:206), and ~2500 on 9/3/1992 (OC 
16(1):21). [[what's magic about 3 Sept?]] Later in fall, 224 migrants 
were observed over Clintonville 10/3/2006 (OC 30(1):20).  One entered 
the OSU campus’s main library on 10/22/1965 (WCB 11:46).  Late records 
were two in Columbus 11/5/2015 (OC 39(1):17) and one seen and heard 
calling on 11/20/1975 at High St. and Morse Rd. (J. Stahl, WCB 
1(20-21):42)."
        I recall eating a picnic lunch with my wife at a remote Ontario park 
one September 20 years or so ago, when the nighthawk migration was 
underway. Mosquitoes were thick, but so were the nighthawks, some of 
which swooped after bugs beneath our picnic table, even between our legs...

And I am reminded that the sounds of birds that show up in Ohio (and
elsewhere) can be studied at http://BLB.osu.edu  . OSU also has an egg
collection that ranks among the top ten in the USA: I and a friend
mostly did the data for more than 10,000 eggs of North America---want to
examine a slaty-backed gull egg? No problem. I can dig up this database

With the spring migration winding down, some folks might be more
interested in learning about birds by searching the websites of natural
history museums. Some institutions offer photos of specimens, and of
course data about dates, place of collection, etc.
         Local birders in Columbus did most of the basic data entry for
the OSU
Museum collections of tetrapods, including birds. After vetting, these
data have been made public on the Web at the idigbio site. To have a
look at the birds, I recommend
https://www.idigbio.org/portal/recordsets/3b9ecf1e-3c04-4d8b-84cd-9ae48e70e13a
   . You can search and scroll down through data on 26,079 OSUM bird
specimens. Other collections we helped to catalog include those for
amphibians, reptiles, and mammals; data for insects and fish were
assembled earlier by others and are listed in the catalog.
         The Cincinnati Museum Center bird collection is available on
this site
at
https://www.idigbio.org/portal/recordsets/65c412fe-1f9f-4f10-aa75-9845b66ef235
. I can't find listings for any from the Cleveland Museum of Natural
History. I hope this collection will be available eventually, as it,
like Cincinnati's, is larger than OSU's.
         If some readers consider this merely nerdy, I offer this
anecdote. It
is quite possible to find rare birds in these lists of specimens. I, in
fact, found two new North American species in the OSU collection; an
article about them with photos will appear in Birding magazine soon. I
know there are treasures in the Cincinnati and Cleveland museums: the
Cinci collections include, for example, specimens from Audubon himself
(he worked in the Museum for a while), and a lot of curious old things.
Happy birding in these resources!

Following up on an ebird report by Carlton Schooley, we were able to locate a 
pair of Yellow-billed Cuckoos on the Sippo Lake Trail . They were in an open 
area about 20 yards before the trail takes a slight bend to the right and a

Hi all,

Thanks goes to Bill Whan for mentioning the bird database that contains so
much information for both armchair and field birders.

Here is a supplement to his list:

Although there is probably some (much?) overlap among databases, I would
like to specifically mention a couple of more.  Duplication not
withstanding the following ones sometime offer alternative ways to query
the the information, for example by county.

HOL - OSU's Insect database Hymenoptera Online

http://hol.osu.edu/

and the OSU Fish Division database which is a subset? of HOL that provides
access  to several broad taxa groups not previously mention in Bill's list

http://osuc.biosci.ohio-state.edu/Fishes/  OSU Fish Division Database

Enjoy!

From: John Pogacnik <jpogacnik AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 26 May 2016 14:13:34 +0000
I birded the Lake Erie Bluffs in Lake County this morning. There were 17 
species of warblers including a singing Connecticut warbler. It was found in 
the extreme southwest corner of the big loop trail west of Lane Road. The bird 
was singing very sparingly and was seen only briefly. It was in a dense stand 
of honeysuckle. Other birds of note this morning were 5 mourning warblers, all 
of the flycatchers except olive-sided, and 2,800 waxwings What was interesting 
was the waxwings were flying west and all of the blue jays were heading east. 



Lake Erie Bluffs Metropark--Lane Rd., Lake, Ohio, US

Comments: There were a lot of birds migrating today. Blue jays were heading 
east and waxwings west. A late meadowlark was seen flying out over the lake 
heading west. Warblers other than local breeders were mainly females. Most were 
high up in the red oak trees that were flowering.

there were 16 species of warblers including 7 mournings and a chat. All of the 
flycatchers were found including 3 alder and an olive-sided. There were several 
kettles of turkey vultures, which were probably locals, but they seemed to 
attract some hawks. Hawks found were northern harrier, sharp-shinned, 
broad-winged, and red-tailed. A merlin was sighted, but may be nesting locally.

Subject: Lawrence Woods SNP and a small Out of State Query
From: Steve Jones <sjlarue1 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 25 May 2016 10:57:44 -0400
First Lawrence Woods SNP in Hardin County is still settling into its
springtime pattern. 51 species(mostly heard) with very few if any migrants
remaining.  Still worth the walk though.

Yesterday was the first day that female mosquitoes were looking to hook up
with me, but I told them that I was a one woman man, and that they should
just go find a deer somewhere. :-D

List below.

And now the quick query. The family and I are heading up to Niagra Falls US
side, in July, and I was wondering if anyone knows of some good places to
find the eastern US woodland and north coast birds that we don't get
here...I'm plan to go just to Lake Ontario though, not to the coast...so
anywhere between Central Ohio and Lake Ontario north Pennsylvania and New
York.

Thanks much

Congrats to Chris Zacharias on hitting 200!!!! today in Montgomery co with the 
Connecticut warbler at hills and dales park in Dayton. He's managed to find, 
chase down, fight and even sometimes sweet talk 36 out of 37 warbler species in 
the county. Only one he's missing is the one that eats worms (worm eating). 
Will he try for 300? Stay tuned from SW Ohio 


Bird On!!!

A Connecticut Warbler was heard singing, but never seen, this morning
between 7:00 and 7:30 in Hills and Dales Metropark in
Dayton/Kettering/Oakwood.

The bird was initially located west of the boardwalk, opposite the two
benches that face east.

A little later, the bird had moved about 100 feet north, remaining on the
west side of the boardwalk.

Sorry for the late post, but we've been entertaining visiting relatives. During 
the visit, however, we took them on a hike at this newly-opened State Nature 
Preserve down near Lancaster. It has a long trail that follows an old logging 
road up Arney Run for nearly a mile before making two loops up the western 
ridge of the valley. The forest is rich here, both in plants and birds, and we 
had a great hike. In about 2.5 hours we had 


3-4 Yellow-billed Cuckoos
Many WoodPewees & Acadians, fewer Great Cresteds and E.Kingbirds
2 Yellow-throated and 30+ Red-eyed Vireos
10+ Swainsons and 8+ Wood Thrushes
16 warbler species, including Parula, Worm-eating, Tennessee, Magnolia, 
Chesnut-sided, Black-thr.Blue, Blackburnian, Yellow-throated, Black&White, 
AmerRedstart, Ovenbirds (many), LaWaterthrush, Kentucky, Hooded, Canada, 
ComYellowthroat 

8-9 Scarlet Tanagers
4-5 Indigo Buntings and 3 Rose-br.grosbeaks

Birds weren't the only treat. There was also a fresh hatch of both Tiger 
Swallowtails and Spring Azures, and we also had blooming Pink Lady's Slippers.

I took a hike in Bedford Reservation (Cuyahoga County) this morning in the 
trails above Hermit's Hollow (west of Overlook Lane). I was hoping for some 
Hooded Warblers because this area has been good for them and for thrushes in 
the past. A short distance down the trail I met a male Barred Owl perched in a 
tree. The owl let out some long "whoooooooos" before flying into the woods. 
Very cool! 


Later I checked the paved Alexander Road bike path to Sagamore Road and heard 
another Barred Owl calling across the field in the woods to the west.

I spent the day in Ashtabula Co. yesterday.  First bird of note was an Am. 
kestrel along SR 7 in Richmond Twp.  From there I went to Denmark Twp. and was 
fortunate to see the pair of upland sandpipers on poles along SR 193 just south 
of Stollaker Rd.  Also in that area were wild turkey, 6 bobolinks, and e. 
meadowlark.  Next I went to Conneaut harbor.  The gates to the spit are open, 
then the sand road is well-packed all the way to the spit.  There's a 
nice-sized pool at the east, it attracted the only migrant shorebirds: 
semipalmated plover, least sandpiper, and semipalmated sandpiper.  Other 
Conneaut birds were double-crested cormorants, a couple bald eagles, 6 
Bonaparte's Gulls, 3 great black-backed gulls, belted kingfisher, 5 warbling 
vireos, 75+ bank swallows (active nests seen at big sandpile in industrial part 
of harbor), tree swallow, barn swallows, gray catbird, yellow warblers, 
yellow-rumped warbler, and Baltimore oriole.  It was early afternoon by then, 
I headed to Indian Trails Park at E. 24th St. in Ashtabula.  The pond there 
was too high for shorebirds, but I did hear warbling vireo and yellow warblers 
at the park.  Last place I visited was Walnut Beach; found there were a pair 
of spotted sandpipers, 2 Caspian terns, 5 warbling vireos, gray catbird, c. 
yellowthroat, yellow warblers, song sparrows, and Baltimore orioles.  Craig 
Holt, Lowellville

Julie and I walked the bike trail east out of South Charleston this morning.
We found a few warblers and the usual nesting birds but we also found a
Bell's Vireo. We heard it singing and then got a good look at it. It was
about one and a half miles east of South Charleston. There is a large old
white and yellow building that used to be part of the feed lot on the south
side of the trail. We were past that a little ways.

Decent day at Lawrence Woods SNP.

Birds were in good quantities singing over top of one another with areas of
silence to help collect thoughts. :-)
Them French-Canadian Flycatchers (Acadian) are back and are scattered
through the woods.  Cerulean Warblers are between 3 and 4.  Geese were
absent today with only a couple flybys.
Looks like the Protonotary Warbler is picking nesting sites...looks like
one may be the box in the pond on the left.  It is also looking for natural
cavities on the right as you enter, and across the pond on the left.
Hopefully a female hears his pleas soon.
Bobolinks are in the field singing every once and a while.
Common Yellowthroats are all around the parking lot...and I saw one at the
pond.
Weirdest bird of the day was a Killdeer flyby.
Mosquito population is minimal at the moment with only two flybys.  Look
for increasing traffic as we go into June. :-D

Lists for prairie and boardwalk below.

Happy birding and God bless.

Subject: Red-necked Grebe South of Middleburg Still Present, 05/22/16
From: Jay Lehman <lehman.jg64 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sun, 22 May 2016 14:44:47 -0400
At about 2:30 pm, today, Sunday, 05/22, the Red-necked Grebe is still
present in the small pond south of Middleburg on SR 287.  It is diving and
feeding often close to road.  Park at driveway across the road from pond.
Great bird!  Thanks for Stefan Minnig's update yesterday and for telling us
on Friday evening at Oldfield Beach, Indian Lake SP at the Whimbrel
location that it probably was still there!  It still is!

An olive-sided flycatcher was found this morning on the Crane Creek estuary
trail at Magee Marsh. It was found on the beach side of the trail, near the
farthest west white "National Wildlife Refuge" sign. There's a clearing
there and the flycatcher spent most of the time on the top of a dead tree.

Ronnie Clark found it this morning. He heard it sing and had visual 
confirmation of eye ring. I am there now and have heard it singing. Woods are 
very dense, and it is a ways in. A visual would be tricky. It is on the south 
end of the Alder Trail.

I have personally seen this bird fly.  It went up about 100 feet then
circled back and relanded...didn't seem to have a problem taking
off...could be something more magnetic...

A Red-Necked Grebe is still present as of 6pm at a small pond off of State 
Route 287, just south of Middleburg, Ohio in Logan County. This is undoubtedly 
the same bird first reported May 1 and is theorized by others I've talked with 
to be injured in some way, due to the fact that it has been present in the pond 
so long. Nothing visually stands out to me to back up the prior statement. When 
I initially saw the bird on May 1, it was going through the motions of taking 
off, but only traveled with good speed 50-80 feet down the pond before settling 
back down in the water. Since this time, I've only seen it floating. Today the 
grebe was floating at the edge of the pond nearest to the road with good 
visuals. Of course that makes sense, as my camera was at home.

Subject: Ottawa Wildlife Refuge Auto Tour / Ottawa-Lucas Counties
From: robert lane <ohiomagpie AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Sun, 22 May 2016 01:47:14 +0000
A late day tour of the auto drive today, Saturday, from 4:15PM to 6:45PM was 
very rewarding. We recorded fifty-tthree species of birds. MS6, on the 
southwest corner of Ottawa Lucas County Road and Stange Road, in Ottawa County, 
provided the highlight of the day, a single Marbled Godwit, plus Dunlins, 
Semipalmated Plovers, Semipalmated Sandpipers, Killdeer, Least Sandpipers, and 
Caspian Terns. The remainder of the birds were seen in the Lucas County 
sections. From the previous location mentioned, looking across the dike to the 
north into MS3, we viewed a pair of Sandhill Cranes with a single tiny colt 
swimming along behind mom and dad, who were both wading. Also here was a late 
Horned Grebe in breeding plumage along with a single Gadwall. Continuing the 
drive to the east in MS5 was a male American Wigeon and a Black-crowned 
Night-Heron. Following the outside perimeter roads looking west from North 
Estuary Road into Pool 3 were 32 male Wood Ducks with no females. From 
Trumpeter Trail looking to the north, the Cliff Swallow colony on the Metzger 
Marsh control structure could be seen. Continuing along Metzger Marsh Drive 
were numerous Marsh Wrens and Swamp Sparrows, a Sora, a White-crowned Sparrow, 
and a Common Nighthawk, just to name some of the species seen today. The most 
unusual sighting of the day was a Pink Flamingo in Lucas County, that could be 
viewed with a spotting scope looking west down the Ottawa Lucas County Road 
Dike, from the Marbled Godwit site. Looking down the dike to the far end of 
MS3, scope sweep a short distance to the right to a dirt pile, check out the 
right side of it. The tour of the auto drive was a fun way to end the day.

From: rob thorn <robthorn AT EARTHLINK.NET>

I walked along the bikepaths of this south Columbus park during this rainy 
morning. Despite the weather, there wasn't a great fallout, but migrants could 
still be found with some persistent searching. I checked at 2 areas in 
3-Creeks: Cruiser park & the Groveport bikepath aa well as the Confluence area, 
and also stopped at Blacklick Park in nearby Groveport. Notables included: 


Yellow-billed Cuckoo - 1 was calling in the rain at Groveport's Blacklick Park.
Pileated Woodpeckers - singles were at both locations at 3-Creeks
Flycatchers - Pewees, Acadians, and GreatCresteds were at both locations, while 
the bikepath had Willow Flycatchers, and Confluence had an Alder calling near 
the powerline right-of-way, a reliable spot for them. 


Vireos - only Warblings & Red-eyed here, but they were common. A 
Yellow-throated was at Confluence, while a White-eyed was at Blacklick Park 

Thrushes - Swainson's were widespread, but never saw more than 4 at any single 
site; Wood Thrushes were also at all locations. 

Mimids - Catbirds were abundant at both spots, but the only Thrasher was at 
Blacklick Park in Groveport 


Warblers - Redstarts were the most common, if you can call 8 in 2 hours common. 
Next in abundance were Magnolias, Yellows, Yellow-throateds, and Common 
Yellowthroats. I also found Parulas, Nashville, Tennessee, Black-thr.Green, 
Blackburnians, Chesnut-sided, Blackpoll, Ovenbirds, N.Waterthrush, Canada (1 at 
Confluence), and Mourning (1 singing along the Groveport bikepath). 


Buntings,Grosbeaks - Indigo Buntings and Rose-br.Grosbeaks were common at both 
locations in 3-Creeks 

Orioles - Baltimores were along the creeks at both locations, while an Orchard 
was singing at Cruiser Pond.

I stopped at Highbanks MetroPark today, hiking around the Dripping Rock Trail 
as well as along the Olentangy River in the Big Meadows area. For comparison, I 
also hiked the ravines of nearby Shale Hollow and the riverside meadow along 
Taggart Rd. Some migrants, like flycatchers & vireos, were very noticeable, 
while others, like warblers & thrushes, were very spotty. Notables included: 


Flycatchers - Pewees and Acadian Flycatchers were abundant in the forested 
ravines; I had 20+ Acadian along the DRT. Big Meadows also had an Alder & Least 
Flycatcher, while Taggert Meadows had 3 Willows. Great Crested Flycatchers and 
E.Kingbirds were present in both riverside meadows. 


Vireos - Red-eyed were abundant in the forested ravines, while Warbling were 
common along the Olentangy River at both Big Meadows and Taggart Rd. Also had 
White-eyed and yellow-throated along the DRT. 


Thrushes - small #s of Wood Thrushes and Swainson's were in the forested 
ravines 

Mimids - only Catbirds, but they were common, especially in the riverside 
meadows 


Warblers - the only common ones were Chesnut-sided, Redstarts, and 
CommonYellowthroats, but I also found Yellows (both riverside meadows), Parula, 
Yellow-throated, Black-thr.Green, Blackburnians (2  AT  Shale Hollow), Magnolias, 
Tennessee, Canada (1 Big Meadows), Kentucky (1 DRT), Hooded, both Waterthrushes 


Grosbeaks,Buntings - no grosbeaks, but lots of Indigo Buntings, especially in 
riverside meadows 

Orioles - plenty of Baltimores and Orchards in the riverside meadows, both Big 
Meadows and Taggart Rd.

A short time ago at about 3:40PM today, Friday, we had our first of the year 
for Ohio Cattle Egrets, two of them, on the south side of SR2, about halfway 
between SR590 and Lickert-Harder Road. They were in a ditch running 
perpendicular to SR2 about 150 feet south of the road, and just east of a 
residence at 14594 SR2. This is also just west of the entrance to Ottawa NWR.

Subject: Swainson's Warbler
From: Michael Gertz <michaeltgertz AT GMAIL.COM>

Apologies for the late post. I had what believe was a SWAINSON'S WARBLER this 
morning at the trees near the Hebrew College driveway right across Clifton Ave 
from Burnet Woods in Cincinnati. Initially I thought I had a Worm-eating 
Warbler. I watched the bird for over 10 minutes, and was a bit perplexed at the 
time. I went back at lunch to get a photo at lunch after realizing what I had 
seen. No luck at lunch. The bird had dark stripe through its eye with light 
eyebrow above. The movement through the eye was stronger than a Tennessee 
Warbler and more reminiscent of a Waterthrush. Noticably long sharp bill, not 
hooked like a Red-eyed Vireo. I had good looks of the bird's back and top of 
head. Warm brown back and cap, not green or gray. Off-white/creamy unstreaked 
breast and under tail. The bird did not have a stripe down the middle of the 
top of its head like a Worm-eating or Black-and-white. There was no yellow 
under the tail like a Palm Warbler or Red-eyed Vireo. A Swainson's Warbler in a 
tree above the Clifton sidewalks is pretty weird, but it had just rained, so 
I'm guessing this was a migrant trap situation. This is a rare sighting, so I 
welcome any questions, discussion, and/or criticism. 


Keep smiling birders, 

Mike Gertz, Over-the-Rhine
