We stopped to check the Osprey nest on the high electric line tower on the Ohio side at Meldahl dam. We saw two little ones in the nest. There could be more the nest is deep and way up there! There was one adult when we arrived and another adult flew in with a fish and took it to the opposite side of the tower from the nest and ate it while the other adult moved to the nest.
There was also a Peregrine Falcon on the dam. We only saw one and it stayed perched in the some spot the whole time we were there.

I saw the most fabulous white hawk flying near the Kenwood/ Madeira area one June 8, 2017! Magnificent! I’m wondering if it an albino or what type of hawk it was ? Anyone?

Bell’s Vireo at Ellis Lake Wetland on 05/20/17, at the 8th pole along the paved bike path west of the circle, this Bell’s Vireo was singing repetitively at 7:00 pm. The bank along the south side of the bike path had been bush whacked to the 9th pole, but the Bell’s Vireo was still present. Because the bank had been cleared of the honey suckle bushes, I walked up to the top, and observed the vireo in the bushes on the south side of the water channel at the top of the bank. Great bird and fun to see! Access to this site from Firebird Lane from the north side of Union Center Boulevard west of I75 north of I275. Bell’s vireo had been first reported at this site on Cincinnati Birders by Mike Busam on May 14, 2017, seen with Bob Lacker.
