Thanks to all the birders who located and kept in their eyes on the Sabine gull 
- it was great to see it feeding with the killdeer and acting like a shorebird 
- appreciated the specific location information on this list. 


Today I have a pair of red-breasted nuthatch at the seed feeder - perhaps the 
same pair that were seen throughout the summer here.

Subject: BCWEC Falconry Event Invite Reminder
From: robert lane <ohiomagpie AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Fri, 30 Sep 2016 12:55:53 +0000
Just a reminder, tomorrow Saturday October 1st, there will be a Falconry Event 
held at "The Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center" in southeastern Columbiana 
County, from 11:00AM to 4:00PM. Join master falconer Mick Brown, 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, Mountain Lions, and Grizzly Bears, are a sampling of the mammals. See 
how many of the mounts of the 187 species of Ohio birds on display, you can 
find with a provided checklist. Great Gray Owl, Black-billed Magpie, 
Chuck-will's-widow, Golden Eagle, Painted Bunting, and even Passenger Pigeon, 
are just a few of the exciting birds on display. 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 
Columbiana County, we guarantee you won't be disappointed. "The Center" is 
located at 12798 Echo Dell Road, East Liverpool, Ohio. Hope to see you there!

A friend of a friend posted a picture of a Greater White-fronted Goose on

with a group of Canada Geese on Quail Hollow Golf Course in Painesville,

I got out for about a half hour during one of the few periods between 
rainstorms yesterday and hiked the Coyote Trail at Highbanks MetroPark, north 
of Columbus. There were small flocks of birds in many places, undoubtedly 
grounded by the storm, but the dark, drizzly weather made viewing tricky. 
Included in the mix were 

-quite a few House Wrens (4-5) and 1 very late Blue-gray Gnatcatcher
-6 species of warbler, with Hooded being the only unexpected species, though 7 
Redstarts was nice 

-quite a few Swainson's Thrushes and Catbirds
-several small groups of Field Sparrows, but few other sparrows
-one cluster of 4 Indigo Buntings

This is a quick reminder to register on-line before October 14th to get the 
early registration prices of $15.00 for students and $25.00 for non-students. 
Additionally, if you'll be presenting a poster or oral presentation make sure 
you submit your abstract to tuckercasey AT hotmail.com by Oct. 14th. 



I'll be sending out a link to the conference booklet, in pdf form, with all of 
the titles, abstracts, and conference details, including directions to Denison 
and the public parking garage connected to Samson-Talbot Hall (Denison's 
Biology Building), shortly after the 14th. As a reminder this document is made 
available as a pdf to reduce paper waste and printing costs. 



This year there will be an informal get-together after the conference in 
downtown Granville at the Broadway Pub (http://www.broadwaypuboh.com/). A group 
got together after last year's conference and we had a great time, so we 
thought we'd try it again this year. Everyone is invited, and it's a great 
opportunity to talk birds, science, and all things nerdy over a pint or two 
(for those of age--legal disclaimer). 



The conference is made possible through the generous support of Columbus 
Audubon's Wilson Fund, The Nature Conservancy of Ohio and Denison University. 
The conference is endorsed by the American Ornithologist's Society. 



If you have any questions in the meantime please don't hesitate to contact me. 
Look for at least one more message from me prior to the conference. 



I look forward to seeing you all in October.


My Best,


Casey Tucker

 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 AT ee.doe.gov
 . on or before October 21, 2016 to
ensure DOE receives written comments in time for consideration in the draft
Environmental Assessment.

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

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.

From: rob thorn <robthorn AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Sun, 25 Sep 2016 21:26:56 -0400
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.
From: inga schmidt <ingais AT EARTHLINK.NET>
Date: Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:25:05 -0400
I am always fascinated by the boldness, the aggressiveness of
young sharp shinned hawks.  Here at my house in Geauga Co. 
Ive 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.

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
From: Jon <jcefus AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sun, 25 Sep 2016 07:43:57 -0400
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!

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!

Subject: Re: Sabine's Gull update
From: Dan Best <bestdan AT WINDSTREAM.NET>
Date: Sat, 24 Sep 2016 15:44:35 -0400
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
From: Stefan Minnig <stefanminnig AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Sat, 24 Sep 2016 13:23:53 +0000
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: rob thorn <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.

From: Jon Cefus <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.

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,



Matt Valencic

Subject: 2016 Winter Finch Forecast
From: Andrew Sewell <semillama AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 22 Sep 2016 17:37:01 -0400
Ron Pittaway's annual Winter Finch Forecast is available, and it contains
some information of interest to Ohio birders...

http://www.jeaniron.ca/2016/finchforecast16.htm

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

Subject: Looking for Research Locations: Scioto River South of Columbus
From: Blake Mathys <blakemathys AT HOTMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 22 Sep 2016 15:27:31 +0000
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,

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.

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!

From: Bill Whan <billwhan AT COLUMBUS.RR.COM>
Date: Wed, 21 Sep 2016 10:22:00 -0400
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...

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.

From: Charles Bombaci <cbombaci AT ATT.NET>
Date: Wed, 21 Sep 2016 01:25:25 +0000
 I took advantage of the nice weather today and headed to Oxbow Road to clean 
and do maintenance on my Prothonotary Warbler nest boxes there. The rains from 
Sunday night proved to be my biggest obstacle as it created mud somewhat like 
wet clay. The mud caked to my boots making them heavy and it acted like they 
were its food for the day. The sound of my boots being yanked out of the mud 
make a sound worthy of the movie Ghostbusters. Me and the boots did make it 
through the morning. I got my reward for this obstacle course before the 
morning was done. All boxes cleaned and mother nature gifted me with some nice 
birds. 

I worked my way around the shore line working on each box as I reached it until 
I got to the north tip area f Oxbow Island. I stopped to refresh myself with a 
drink of water as I sat on a log. Then I realized that there were birds 
flitting about in the trees and a few on the ground. I always take my 
binoculars when I clean and I took the out to see who was about. There was a 
variety of warblers although mostly only one or two of most species. American 
Redstarts topped the count with 7. Others included Tennessee, Nashville, 
Magnoila, Cape May, Black-throated Green, Blackburnian, Blackpoll, 
Bay-breasted, Black & White, Pine and an Orange-crowned Warbler. As I exited 
the path from the wooded area to the road to the launc I spotted a single bird 
moving in the underbrush, a Connecticut Warbler. All told there were no more 
than 30 individuals, but it still was a wonderful flourish of warblers. 

Some of the other species I observed were an Osprey, an adult Bald Eagle, 2 
Blue-winged Teal, a Yellow-billed Cuckoo, lots of Cedar Waxwings and many of 
the common species expected in the area.

Correction. After getting an email from Rob Thorn I think that it most likely 
was a Snowy egret. It was actively feeding. Patting it's feet and moving almost 
constantly.

Here are a few pictures of the Geauga County (LaDue Reservoir) Sabine's Gull
from 4:30pm today https://www.flickr.com/photos/85567104 AT N05/.  It spends a
lot of time on the ground with the Ring-billed Gulls, Killdeer, Yellowlegs
and Mallards, but has no problem flying when it wants to.



Best time for pictures is after 4:00pm.  Morning sun will be 'in your face'.
You will be able to see the bird with a scope but pictures will be terrible.

On Saturday Carl Winstead reported two Lesser Black-backed Gulls at the beach 
at Deer Creek State Park in Pickaway County. I attempted to chase those birds 
yesterday (Sunday) but the beach had been taken over by model airplanes, which 
were the only things flying. There were no birds in sight. 

I went back this afternoon and found one LBBG along with 275 Ring-billed Gulls. 
Surprisingly, although I checked carefully, I found no Herring Gulls. The only 
shorebirds were two Killdeer.
