p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · More Nesting birds from Southern Ohio!


I went with a friend to his 75 acre property in Hocking County. It's a great piece of land with hardwoods, pine stands, fields of scruffy mixed stuff and a couple ponds. As you could image, it was bird haven! We just show up, and we hear a Pine Warbler singing, oh and a Black-and-White Warbler. The Pine was so wonderful, and not the slightest bit shy.
All pictures taken with Canon 40D and 400L on a tripod.

Next we went to a little ravine like area with a flowing creek through it. I heard Bee Buzz Buzz. My heart stops and I get really excited. Unfortunately it was not what I so hoped for. This area was loaded with birds. A Hooded and a Kentucky were to be found here, but these guys do not like their photo taken. They are on the top of my target list because of this. Here are two photos that I really shouldn't have even bothered processing, but I do love them so...

Took a break to eat lunch. Thanks to my wife who made up some awesome home-made barbeque sauce and chicken! After lunch we tried again at those two but gave up. Off to the ponds! This is just a awesome area. I wish I had taken a few environment photos, but did not. I'll have to do that next time down. After seeing a Spotted Sandpiper at the pond we searched out more song birds. We found them! Seeking a b-list target bird, Yellow-breasted Chat we stopped and were surrounded by White-eyed Vireo, Blue-wing Warbler, Common Yellothroat, and Indigo Bunting. I didn't get photos of the Vireo or Blue-wing, but I got the others.

Indigo Bunting







One of the treats of the day was to see this Female Indigo Bunting. I can't remember seeing one before. I'm sure I have, but it is a rare sighting. She is a beauty!

By now it was getting late. What a wonderful time shooting birds. I was really thursty and my water supply had run out, so back to the truck we went. We took the long way around. As we got back to the truck we heard and then saw (wonderful looks) 2 Great crested Flycatchers. I so wanted a picture of them, but it was not meant to be.

Onward home. Over all I didn't get a lot of photos, but some of the ones I did get, turned out pretty nice. Thanks Greg for sharing this awesome place with me. I can't wait to go again.

Thanks for looking!
Bruce

Wow, great set! Lots of great photos here - I think the PIne Warblers are the winners here for me - beautiful! So when you say you heard 'bee buzz buzz' - I assume you were hoping for a Golden-winged Warbler? I can't think of another bird that sounds like it (except blue-wing - which is bee buuuzz). I would assume you did hear a golden-wing - just didn't see it?

Anyways, great set! Sounds like such an exciting trip!

Yes, I was thinking a Golden-wing!
What is weird is I did see him, a lot, just did not get any pics. He was a regular old blue-wing. I was hoping that at least he was hybrid.

It was fun!

What a thrill to have access to a bird haven like this Bruce.
The Pine Warbler images are the standouts for me... well done.

I'd be interesting to know if you definitely heard "bee buzz buzz" (sometimes 3 buzz's) and not a blue-wing song, because there is something known as a cryptic hybrid, which occurs when a golden/blue-wing hybrid backcrosses into the pure population. Which could be either a Golden-wing singing a Blue-wing song or a Blue-wing singing a golden-wing song(maybe what you saw?). DNA testing usually confirms birds that do this have a small amount of DNA introgression from the other species. I worked in an area w/ a lot of golden-wings and quite a few blue-wings, and I never did get a decent blue-wing shot!

Thanks Ron. It's interesting, the Black-and-Whites aren't real shy and will let you get close, but they never stop and since they are clinging birds (only warbler like that) I find them extra hard to get a real clean image of them. they never seem to just perch and sing like the Pine.
