Swans, Cranes and Longspurs

These are a few of the highlights from the Western Hamilton County CBC.

Fernald had 5 Tundra Swans along with 13 Cackling Geese and  9 species of ducks on the Weapons to Wetlands Lake.

Miami Whitewater had 3 Red-headed Woodpeckers, 1 Barred Owl and 2 Short-eared Owls.

We found a mixed flock of Horned Larks and Lapland Longspurs in a field at the corner of Rte 128 and New Haven Road.

It seemed we were always hearing calling Sandhill Cranes. We saw over 400 today. Many were flying low and saw 7 on the ground at the Miami Whitewater Wetlands.
