This may be a strange request but I am teaching a class on birding to a
group of children this Friday. The teacher fell and broke his leg this
morning and I got recruited so I need this pretty quickly. J I need a source
or website of bird silhouettes like are in the front of Petersons field
guide that only gives the viewer that bird family and not the exact species.
Any help is appreciated.

 Feel free to email me directly.



Blessings to you,

Well, I don't have the needed birding advice, but I just happily spent the hour 
reading your nephew and his cycling partner's blogs. What an adventure and 
amazing photos!!

I'm a few days late in posting this, but here it is:
Thursday Sept. 25 - saw an adult Bald Eagle around the I-71/US 35 interchange 
in Fayette County; it was working a couple of the borrow pit ponds near the 
interchange. 

Thursday Sept. 25 - while attending a Cincinnati Reds game in Cincinnati, saw a 
Peregrine Falcon 4 times hunting in the stadium during the game. It of course 
kept flushing the stadium pigeons and doves. Never saw it get anything. Last 
view we got of the bird, it cruised at eye height about 40 feet from us -- 
great view!

Greetings all,

The previously reported duo remained present this afternoon (09/29) circa 12:30 
at Indian Lakes Oldfield Beach. Thanks to Troy Shively for not only bringing 
these birds to everyones attention but also for donning Jane Riley Riker and I 
with the tidbit that this bird tends to forage well out in the lake, which is 
exactly where it showed up. Many Ring-billed and Herring still present, as well 
as a few Bonaparte's. Happy birding! 


- Scott

From: Jerry Talkington <jerry073352 AT ATT.NET>

 The Wake Robin boardwalk has been active the past week with migrants. I 
tallied 5 Nelson's Sparrows, 7 Lincoln's Sparrows ,4 Marsh Wrens , many Song 
and Swamp Sparrows. Also seen in past few days were Orange-crowned Warbler 
,Sora, Virginia Rail, A. Pipit,Sharp-shinned Hawk, White-crowned and 
White-throated Sparrows to name a few. 

 For those looking for Nelson's Sparrows keep in mind it is a very small and 
does't pump it's tail as takes flight . It is usually the last bird to take 
flight and flies the shortest distance . Watch for moving weeds as it moves 
like a Marsh Wren through the weeds . When it lands it will most likely stay 
longer than the other sparrows. 

 If you don't press it and move back 20 feet or so it will often come to the 
same place . With patience and as little movement as possible you may get as 
close as five feet to these little guys. 

 I have stuck several dead branches in the mud on west side of the pond for the 
birds . If you lucky you may see one on one of them. 

  Good luck
  Jerry

The phalarope was seen throughtout the weekend east of 225 bridge in Stark 
county. The bird is a ways out at the water to the east. I last observed the 
bird yesterday evening at 6:00 pm. 


Parking is at a premium. I parked south of the bridge at the pull off with the 
poles on the west side of the road. Walk along the road to the bridge and go 
down the NE side of the bridge to the mud flats. 


The bird is very active.

From: Robert Evans <benbovas AT GMAIL.COM>

As of the evening of September I have been back home, after being gone (at
sea) since April 10. I am very happy to be back.

The birds are about as expected this latter half of September, which is to
say that that nature here is thoroughly delightful.

I note that some northern Ohio posts mention the lack of hummingbirds for a
few days. Our feeders here in rural Muskingum County are still being
visited by a few, or at least one. I had a single individual
female/immature type visit the feeder, spotted once yesterday morning, and
around 1PM today.

A pair of pileated woodpeckers have been flying and calling in the forest
every morning. A couple nights we have heard a distant great horned owl
just after dusk.

Raising a smile for me in the "Spring Hollow" during our morning hike
today, was a singing white-eyed vireo.

For my Ohio birding friends who may be curious, I picked up 4 North
American lifers this past spring and summer from our location about 160
miles off Charleston, SC: a late spring masked booby, and three others that
showed up in some numbers following Hurricane Bertha - sooty tern, and
Cory's and Audubon's shearwaters.

Spent a few hours birding around these migrant traps along the Scioto River in 
Columbus. South of Downtown, I hiked around Scioto Audubon & Berliner Park, 
then drove out to Dublin to check on Kiwanis Park & O'Shaughnessy Dam. Migrant 
numbers were uneven, with no site having 'fallout' numbers. Highlights included 


Cormorants - they're now easily the most common waterbird along the Scioto, 
which may not be a good thing 

Green Heron - 1 rather late bird was at Kiwanis
Great Egrets - at least 6 were fishing in the low water along the river at 
Scioto Audubon 

Turkey Vultures - a flock of 60 was roosting around O'Shaughnessy Dam
Sapsuckers - singles were at both Scioto Audubon and Berliner Park bikepath
Flycatchers - there were still a Wood Pewee and a E.Phoebe at Scioto Audubon
Vireos - a Philadelphia was at O'Shaughnessy Dam (Frink Park), while 
Blue-headed and Red-eyed were along the Berliner bikepath 

Wrens - House Wrens were at every stop, which is unusual in these riparian 
sites 

Thrushes - Swainson's were calling at every stop, which is much more typical of 
these riverside forests 

Mimids - Catbirds were at every stop, and a Brown Thrsher was at Scioto Audubon
CedarWaxwings - small flocks at every stop, topped by 40 at Kiwanis Park
Warblers - no big numbers, but did have Parula, Tennessee, Magnolia, 
Black-thr.Green, Blackburnian, Redstart, and Com.Yellowthroat 

IndigoBunting - 1 was actually singing briefly at O'Shaughnessy Dam
Sparrows - few, and only the expected Chipping and Songs

They seemed to be everywhere along with the dozens of palms that have
been here for the last week.
Also first of season ruby crowned kinglets and white crowned

4 Franklin's Gulls remained with the big gull flock on the beach at Alum Creek 
Lake yesterday morning, mostly sticking together in a small group among the 
600+ Ring-bills and Herrings. Little else besides Kildeer graced the beach, but 
the nearby forest & meadows had a burst of later migrants, including many Blue 
Jays, 2 sapsuckers, 2-3 Ruby-cr.Kinglets, Swainson's Thrushes, 8 warblers 
(Tennesssee the most common, followed by Redstarts, Black-thr.Greens, 
Magnolias, ComYellowthroats, Black-thr.Blue, Yellow-rump, and Parula), and 5 
sparrows (Field, Chipping, Song, Lincoln's, & White-throated), Raptor migration 
was minimal, with only 22 Turkey Vultures, 1 Sharpie, and 2 Red-tails in 2 
hours at New Galena.

Jaegers (including 2 adults), 3 distant unidentified jaeger species, and three 
Little Gulls (2 adults, one first year). A blog post with collective photo 
highlights from the Sept 21 and Sept 27 will be posted in the near future. A 
smashing 26 total Parasitic Jaegers, 1 Long-tailed, and one Pomarine, plus 7 
distant unidentified jaegers brings the total (for two trips) to 35 jaegers 
between 9 total hours of observation between two trips.

Subject: A busy day at the Hoover Nature Preserve, Del. Cty.
From: Charles Bombaci <cbombaci AT ATT.NET>
Date: Sat, 27 Sep 2014 11:33:38 -0700
Today was another workday at the Hoover Nature Preserve. With the assistance of 
some great friends we cleaned and did maintenance on the nest boxes located in 
the Old Sunbury Road area. During the past week, often with help, I have 
cleaned and serviced nest boxes at Mudhen Marsh, Oxbow Road, Wiese Road, Dustin 
Road, Areas M and N in Galena and Old Sunbury Road. I still need to install a 
few replacement nest boxes in these areas and re-number the boxes, but as a 
whole we have made much progress and only three major areas remain to be 
covered. 


This was the first time helping with the nest boxes for a few of the 
individuals. A new awakening to nature for some as they got to watch Deer Mice 
jump over tall people with a single bound; Deer Mice look at them with big soft 
eyes pleading for them not to pull their warm nest from the nest box; Wolf 
Spiders the size of Mini Coopers; and soft mud that devour boots. Then there 
was the steeplechase competition. This is where you try to negotiate over large 
fallen trees with a back pack. Reminds me of my Army training. No one suggested 
nominating this as a new National pastime. We had Prothonotary Warbler nests in 
12 nest boxes and in some of the other boxes there were Tree Swallow and House 
Wren nests. Only two nest boxes had a House Wren nest. This is a good statistic 
as the House Wrens are a major problem along many nest box trails. 


The gang earned extra points as they policed trash as we went along. By the 
time we finished everyone looked like a Santa Claus escapee from a homeless 
shelter. 


They did receive some rewards from nature. We observed 6 Bald Eagles, ranging 
from two full adults to what were likely the juveniles from this year's nest at 
the preserve. There were numerous Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets feeding on 
the shore and edge of sand ridges exposed in the water. Red-headed Woodpeckers 
made an appearance along with a few Downy Woodpeckers and Northern Flickers. 
Other than American Robins and Carolina Wrens the songbirds were mostly 
missing. Warblers were AWOL as we did not see a single bird. 


The mudflats at and near Pelican Island are now exposed. None of us had our 
field glasses with us and because of this only the noisy Killdeer were 
identified. There were many shorebirds near the water and some up in the area 
away from the water. All were small peeps but that is the best I can say for 
lack of optics. The equipment backpacks were enough to handle by themselves but 
a return trip with a scope is in my plans. This is good habitat to look form 
Baird's and Buff-breasted Sandpipers among others. 


A very big thank you to everyone who has helped with the nest boxes. I 
sincerely appreciate your help and your company. A big gold star for you.

Subject: Clay-colored Sparrow Erie Street
From: Gautam Apte <gapte3 AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Sat, 27 Sep 2014 13:07:33 -0400
Hello all,
 The continuing Clay-colored Sparrow was still present at the Erie street 
cemetery today as of around 10:00 AM. It was mixing with a flock of about 20 
White-throated Sparrows, 10 White-crowned Sparrows, and 5 Chipping Sparrows. 
The bird was mostly hanging around the middle of the cemetery, hugging the 
wall. It was foraging on the ground, but would occasionally fly up into a tree, 
no more than 10 ft off the ground. At some times, it actually flew over the 
wall, but always came back. It seemed to be very tame, flying up to the ground 
within 10-15 ft of the observer. Also present were a large number of flickers, 
a Swainson's Thrush, numerous Common Yellowthroats, Dark-eyed Junco's, 
Lincoln's Sparrows, and 1 Swamp Sparrow. 


Good birding, 
Gautam Apte

Troy Shively called me on his way to work just after seeing one juv.
Sabine's and several Franklin's gulls at the beach at Indian Lake SP.
They were among a good-sized flock of more-expected gull spp, standing
side by side. A flush of Franklin's shows up every few years, but this
many Sabine's here and elsewhere in Ohio is a rarer phenomenon. As
before, chances of getting close to the gulls are much better in early
morning and late evening, but there are some indications that loafing
gulls will settle in at the south end of the beach even if swimming's
going on--Troy tells me few swimmers are daring the waters this late in
the season, anyway. There seems to be no such thing as a bad time to
take Fido out for a dump, tho.

I heard a cacophony of bird yells this afternoon and went out to investigate. 
An immature hawk, Coopers, I believe, was perched on the edge of the woods, 
being mobbed by assorted angry birds. It flew off but I took the opportunity to 
sit on a log and just watch birds for awhile. The angry birds dispersed (blue 
jays, flickers, red-bellied woodpecker, downy woodpecker, tufted titmice, 
chickadees, robins) but one bird stayed nearby - a brown creeper!!! I have only 
seen one in the yard once before. It did its creeper thing for awhile before 
moving to a farther tree. 

Back at the house a Carolina Wren was calling and I located it going in and out 
of the woodshed. Glad to see it nearby. 

A barred owl called from the woods.  
Notably absent:  no hummingbirds since September 23rd.

The LeContes sparrow is still at Frohring Meadows today.

Seen in the wetland that has the paved trail around it.
Walk out on the recently mowed small dam. That's the
area where it has been seen regularly.

Fellow birders: As I have posted before, the Geauga Park District is under 
attack from the Probate Judge and the new Park Board. There have been layoffs 
and most park employees have had a demotion. On Sept. 18, the Honorable Judge 
Timothy Grendell addressed the Geauga County Tea Party in a performance full of 
exaggerations and hypocrisy. In one segment, he picked up on the topic of the 
Virginia Rail. This bird is nesting in our Frohring Meadows and the opposition 
to our Protect Geauga Parks has used it as an example of the mission of the 
parks to preserve, protect and conserve. We have been criticized in letters to 
the editor for this "out of state bird from Virginia" which does not pay taxes. 
Now the judge gave his flapping bird performance to the Tea Party (two photos 
from the video above), saying we objected to the sun reflecting off of the 
soccer goals ( which he said we had indicated would disturb the bird) while we 
drove our big shiny cars through the parking lot. ( We drive a dusty Prius) 
This is the attitude toward preservation and in light of the recent State of 
the Birds report, we nature lovers in Geauga find this very disturbing. We are 
being called "environmental elitists", "whining malcontents" and my favorite, 
"Nature Nazis." The judge has taken out full page ads in 4 newspapers berating 
us and essentially calling us liars. All park districts in the state are under 
the local probate judge and it is his/her decision on how to interpret the Ohio 
Revised Code sec. 1545. If any conservation minded individual, especially those 
in NE Ohio, would care to write letter to the editor of the Plain Dealer, or 
contact our park board by email (go to geaugaparkdistrict.org) we would 
appreciate the backing. If your local parks have any similar agenda planned, 
please let me know. It will take a state wide effort to get the Ohio Revised 
Code changed. Meanwhile, if you can add your support to our group, Protect 
Geauga Parks, which is a non-partisan effort to keep our parks preserving, 
protecting and conserving over 9000 acres, please join our Facebook page 
(Protect Geauga Parks) or let me know privately at this email address if you 
would like to join our googlegroup to receive email updates. If you belong to 
any conservation minded groups, please share this with them. I haven't been 
called a "treehugger" in 40 years (it makes me feel so young)

On another note I found a five-sided quick release plate. Let me know if it

Subject: [Ohio-birds] Autumn Reflections
Greetings Bird Enthusiasts, Autumn is typically a time of reflection for me and I have been reflecting on my experiences as someone who has joined a larger community of people who share an enthusiasm for our avian friends, and the beauty of the natural world around us. I have come to appreciate just how difficult this "past time" is. I suppose that nobody knows just how deep the rabbit hole goes when they get into this, but as someone who has a strong appreciation for working out challenges in an intellectual way, I have yet to experience anything quite like birding. Grad school is a cakewalk compared to identifying fall warblers or shorebirds. So much subtlety. So many environmental and habitat challenges. So many unexpected ethical questions. So much soul searching when uncertainty trumps the desired result. I appreciate the people that I have met and the help I have received from so many. So much passion. So much, at times, obsession. Calm heads. Hard-charging chasing. Some who seldom utter a word. Some who utter too many. Intellectuals. Poets. Artists. Scientists. Young. Old. Renaissance women and men. Those who go with the flow and those who cannot help but go against the grain. I appreciate them all. I hope that I say ‘thank you’ enough to those who have so kindly given their time and knowledge to me. My gratitude runs deep and I often wonder why I should be so fortunate. I now better understand the difficulties faced in a world of growing social media. So much potential, yet so many unexpected and unforeseen consequences. I am someone who appreciates a dialectical approach when in conversation, whether that is in person or in media such as this. I have learned that not everyone appreciates that approach and this is fine. It’s easier to smile and look at the birds than to change a mind, mine included. I have not always been as diplomatic as I could have been and for that I’m sorry. My love of digging deeper into the reasons for something are not always effective or appreciated and I am learning to adapt to those around me. I am growing as a human and I make mistakes along the way. I am proud that through my photography I have introduced friends and family members to a world around them that they were barely aware of. I am also proud of the days when I have left the camera at home and just walked quietly, watching and listening. Being fully present with no agenda. No goal. No list. Just me and the world around me interacting with as much peace and compassion as a human can try to know. Sorry to the tiny unseen creatures that fall under my steps…I am only human. There are days that I despair. I fear for the fate of our natural world. I fear for the fate of our avian friends when I read that 314 species of birds are on the brink of disappearing in my lifetime. I get angry and frustrated when I see thoughtless actions that create harm. Yes, sometimes I despair, but more often than not I am able to pull myself back from the darkness and see the good that people are trying to do. Awareness brings progress, though sometimes it is glacially slow and invisible to the mortal who, if fortunate, gets a 70-year ride on this planet. I encourage anyone who has read this far to move out of the darkness that says that the challenges are too great and move into the field of action. However small that action may be, it can create changes that you may never even know in your lifetime. Give money if you can. Give time if you can. Educate if you can teach. Share your passion and skills with someone new. Be the change you want to see in the world...

As of 4:30 PM there was a Golden Plover feeding on the mudflat just off the end

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder (and a request!) about Neil Hayward speaking tonight in
Columbus about his record breaking ABA Big Year last year. Plus, we'll kick
things off with a short program by Ohio's very own Dan Sanders (715 species
in 2005) and Jay Lehman (733 species in 2013) about their Big Year efforts.

Details are at

http://www.columbusaudubon.org/index.php/14-announcements/announcements/1308-upcoming-program-tuesday-september-23 


I'll be moderating some Q&A sessions, and whether or not you can join us, *I'd
love to ask them some questions from all of you!*

Feel free to email our questions to me at this address, or for those of you
in the Birding Ohio facebook group, comment on this post
.

Good birding,
-Paul Hurtado

Subject: Delaware county Franklin's gull NO Am. Golden plover YES!

Checked Alum Creek beach this morning but there was no sign of the Franklin's 
Gull. I then went to The Hoover mudflats where an American Golden plover was 
still present. The mudflats are exposed all the way out to the end of the 
boardwalk now and the plover was easily viewed with just binoculars. There were 
also numerous warblers in the parking area of area M. Including Tennessee, 
Magnolia, Palm, Northern Parula, Blackpoll, and Black throated green. 


Good birding,
Rob Batterson

Arrived somewhat late at about 9:45 am but still before dog walkers at the
beach.  There were still two Franklin's Gulls on the beach with the flock
of Ring-billed Gulls with two Common Terns, a young Bonaparte's Gull and a
young Herring Gull.  Met Jason Cade there who also had the two FRGU just
after sunrise.  After about 20 minutes, the FRGU took off and circled up
and disappeared but may still be in the area feeding.  Frank Frick arrived
and is still searching and hoping they return to the beach.

observed loosely organized group of nighthawks flying south over west Akron 
(near Merriman Rd. and Memorial Pkwy, zipcode 44303) on Saturday, September 20, 
2014, in the early evening around 6 PM. I counted 15 individuals at the time of 
observation. However, in the past, I have observed groups of nighthawks 
migrating southward when the group would take up to 15 minutes and would number 
over 50-75 over the observation period. As I did not linger for a longer period 
to observe, this count was made in about 5 minutes.

In years past we have had 3 clutches in the hay loft of our barn. This year
the first babies fledged in late May but then we disrupted the hay loft and
no more this year.  However, they remain active in the buckthorn next to the
barn.  Always junco's in our yard.

Haans,

I had one in my yard 2 days ago. They had 3 clutches this year in my hanging
baskets in Geauga Co. I was surprised to see them this late too. Parent
feeding young one mealworms from my feeder until fledgling plopped himself
in the middle of the bowl and ate on his own.

Have a nice day

DCBC PROGRAMS FOR AUTUMN

 

September 22nd: “Ohio Wildlife Center’s Educational Wildlife 
Ambassadors”, Darlene Sillick. 


 Join Darlene Sillick, an OWC 25 year educational raptor volunteer and meet 
some college interns and a high school student who are specially trained to 
handle the OWC raptors. Learn what our youth is doing to teach others about 
wildlife. There will be a live raptor presentation and educational and 
interactive PowerPoint. Please feel free to bring cameras to photograph these 
beautiful educational raptors as they are presented. Try to bring some children 
to this program! You will meet Caitlin McNaughton a junior at OWU and Stephen

the birds. 


 The mission at Ohio Wildlife Center (OWC) is to foster awareness and 
appreciation for Ohio’s native wildlife. Founded in 1984 by Dr. Donald 
Burton, a few staff and many volunteers have admitted over 70,000 wild animals 
to the wildlife hospital on Billingsley Road and provided educational programs 
to over 1,000,000 at the Cook Rd educational facility and at public outreach 
programs. Staff and volunteers have responded to over 550,000 wildlife hotline 
calls. And proudly, over 650,000 hours have been donated by dedicated and 
passionate volunteers. 


 

 Visit our website to learn how you can help native wildlife by donating and or 
volunteering your time. www.ohiowildlifecenter.org 
 


 Please plan to either make a monetary donation or bring some items from the 
OWC wish list on their website.
