Bob Lane shared the following point-blank shot of a Marbled Godwit present at Conneaut this morning (Friday the 10th) along with a Willet, Black-bellied and Semipalmated Plovers, White-rumped and Baird’s Sandpipers, Ruddy Turnstones and more. Today’s weather was PERFECT for shorebirding along the Lake Erie coastline. Strong WSW storm fronts with intermittent downpours dropped birds out of the sky and onto the shoreline. In contrast to birding the NW region marshes, where birds build on large tracts of wetlands, shorebirding along the immediate Lake Erie front, on beaches and in harbors offers birders the thrill of change-over as birds are ever-moving and dropping in throughout the day. Conneaut is the best spot in Ohio for “drop-in” shorebirding.
