Mid-afternoon in Clintonville

Robin Brunotts (not to be confused with Robin Mullet, who is reporting separately from Coshocton County) and I had a very slow afternoon in Northmoor and Whetstone Parks. We added only five new species: Turkey Vulture, White-Breasted Nuthatch, Crow, Chipping Sparrow and Cowbird. This brings us to 38 species all within a two-mile radius of my house in Clintonville.

Sharon split off this morning to put in a few hours of work at COSI, but just called in from the bike trail on the way back home to report a Ruby-Throated Hummingbird and a Scarlet Tanager - just north of Spring Street downtown! She and I plan to work the bike trail to the north later this afternoon and, as previously reported, visit Greg Cunningham's house for the owl this evening.

For the record, we started our Birdathon at 7:40 am today, which means we can still get up early and work the OSU wetland again tomorrow morning for at least another hour, ending at 7:39. We carbon-conscious Birdathoners never give up!
