Magee Marsh - Crane Creek Ohio

I had a business meeting in Cleveland yesterday... I got up early and headed to the Marsh before my meeting at noon.... Migration is still behind, about a week.... It was a really nice day... got to the park at about 7am... The Marshes are flooded... No shorebird habitat anywhere and that includes the Ottawa Wildlife Refuge...  list of a few highlights... Total 60 species... in about 2+ hrs of birding...

Blue-winged Teal
Northern Shoveler
Ruddy Ducks
Wood duck
Hooded Merganser
Pied-billed Grebe
Common Morehen
Trumpeter Swan
Bald Eagle
Golden Eagle
American Kestrel
Great Egret
Great Blue Heron
Yellow, Yellow-rumped and Palm Warblers
Virginia Rail
Common Morehen
Forsters Tern
Warbling Vireo
Baltimore Oriole

All in all a slow day, but a good chance for me to scout the area....
