Black-necked Stilts - 26 Aug 2018


Robin and I arrived a bit too late this morning to see the Peregrine Falcon, American White Pelican, and Red-necked Phalaropes that were at Howard's Marsh Metropark in NW Ohio. Still, we enjoyed a nice walk on this overcast, soupy, hot and humid Sunday morning.

Just next to the parking lot I found a relatively cooperative Horned Lark that allowed me time to set up and digiscope from 20' away.



I managed to see and get some nice images of the resident Black-necked Stilts (as many as 10 birds!) despite the poor lighting.







An Osprey flew overhead and would roost in a snag next to the Stilt Pond and entertain a number of photographers for over a half-hour. 

I didn't wander over to where the gulls and terns were, but this Bonaparte's Gull flew by and showed me just how bad it needs to grow some fresh feathers...
