Other observers:

The dam area at Brookville Lake was packed with waterfowl yesterday afternoon because the rest of the lake was frozen. I did not venture north of Fairfield causeway because everything was frozen there save for a small lead in the north basin and the marina area at Sagamore Resort.  There were also many ducks on the Whitewater River below the dam through the town of Brookville. I also had 10 Lapland Longspurs and with 75 Horned Larks in the nearby countryside. The White-winged Scoter was an immature/female type and loosely associating with pintail on the main reservoir.

Reporter: Eric Burkholder

Other observers: Joe Bens

There was a large movement of Snow Geese,with some Ross’s Geese,  in our area on Friday and Saturday.  During the Western Hamilton County Christmas Bird Count we had 6 flyover at Fernald in the late morning.  Then at about noon  Joe Bens and I had a flock of 325 flyover Miami Whitewater Wetlands. I was able to take  multiple photos of the flock in the air. We first heard the flock coming from the Northwest flying over the field next to the wetlands. The field now planted with oversized houses. We hoped they would land in the wetlands, which is full of water but no luck. In the next twenty minutes they flew over us 2 more times each time heading back to the Northwest.

After the count was over, I stopped at Lost Bridge. There were 200 Snow Geese , 34 Ross’s Geese and  4 Greater White-fronted reported there on Friday.  There was still about 80 Snow Geese at Lost Bridge around 4:00 on Saturday. It was hard to get an accurate count because the geese were in the back pond  and partially hidden by the levee that runs between the two Ponds. Also on Friday at Armleder, 1 Snow Goose and 1 Ross’s Goose were found.

During the Great Parks Winter Bird Count on December 9, 2017 , Snow Geese were reported at Miami Whitewater but the exact number never got put into the count results

Reporter: greg hoeting

Other observers:

A flock of about 70 snow geese in a somewhat disorganized V-shape flying northward direction relatively low to ground as though they had taken off from a nearby location at about 7:30 in the morning just west and north of I-71 and I-275.  Definitely not Canada since their appearance was smaller and they had a high pitch hock-hock sound as they flew. I was able to verify their sound from the Audubon app at the time of the sighting. Unfortunately no pictures :(.

The female king eider remains at Chilo as of 3 pm, December 4. She often hugs the riverbank below the riverwalk, just east of the parking lot, so one has to wait until she swims into view.

Also, in Madisonville, there is a winter wren along the Little Duck Creek Trail immediately north of the Roe Street bridge.

I went to look for the Clingman’s WW Scoter at this park.  On arrival, I spotted a bird diving just off the boat ramp.  It didn’t look right to me for any scoter.  I looked at eiders on my phone and concluded that it was a female KING EIDER.  The bird swam up under the Ohio bank several times and out into river channel.  Photos on FB.

The Audubon Society field trip to Brookville Reservoir today looked like it might be a bust if the predicted weather forecast came to fruition. I am glad to say it did not. Skies were overcast but we didn’t have a drop of rain and the strongest winds didn’t occur until the trip was over.

Only 6 hardy birders threw caution to the winds (pun intended) and showed up for the trip. All things considered we had a great day. Highlights included Snow Goose, Peregrine Falcon 300 Sandhill Cranes and large numbers of Bonaparte’s Gulls and Hooded Mergansers. Thanks to Joe Bens, Chris Moran, Darlena Graham, Heather Farrington and Larry Bowdre for their contributions to a fun day and great birding. Joe and I went over the list and we may have missed something others had, but our trip list total stands at 57 species.

Birds observed today were as follows: Snow Goose 1, Canada Goose 160, Gadwall 3, Mallard 15, Redhead 18, Bufflehead 2, Hooded Merganser 260, Ruddy Duck 3, Wild Turkey 7, Common Loon 9, Pied-billed Grebe 22, Double-crested Cormorant 17, Great Blue Heron 16, Black Vulture 100, Turkey Vulture 50~, Bald Eagle 1, Red-shouldered Hawk 1, Red-tailed Hawk 8, American Kestrel 3, Peregrine Falcon 1, American Coot 45, Sandhill Crane 300+, Killdeer 3, Dunlin 7, Bonaparte’s Gull 3,500, Ring-billed Gull 500, Rock Pigeon 20, Mourning Dove 65, Belted Kingfisher 3, Red-bellied Woodpecker 2, Downy Woodpecker 8, Hairy Woodpecker 1, Blue Jay 4,  American Crow 90, Horned Lark 20, Northern Rough-winged Swallow 1 (very late, good looks), Carolina Chickadee 10~, Tufted Titmouse 2, White-breasted Nuthatch 1, Red-breasted Nuthatch 1, Carolina Wren 6, Golden-crowned Kinglet 4, Eastern Bluebird 9, American Robin 30, Northern Mockingbird 1, European Starling 250, Cedar Waxwing 45, Song Sparrow 4, White-throated Sparrow 6, Dark-eyed Junco 10+, Northern Cardinal 8, Red-winged Blackbird 25, Rusty Blackbird 15, Common Grackle 10, House Finch 15, American Goldfinch 5, House Sparrow 8.
