In my last blog post, I mentioned that I was only eight bird species away from hitting 250 Ohio species for the year.
I thought I might expand on that and list some of the birds that I still need for my year list AND still have a halfway decent chance of adding, ahead of my Columbus Avids trip this Saturday.
The list includes, in no particular order:
Greater White-fronted Goose
Of the above, Pine Siskin would be an addition to my Ohio life list.
There are also some less likely birds I could get, which include:
Northern Saw-whet Owl
Sanderling (maybe some late birds???)
Of these birds, Harlequin Duck, Little Gull, Pomarine Jaegar and Black-legged Kittiwake would be life birds, and Red Crossbill, Common Redpoll and Golden Eagle would be Ohio lifers.
Of the above lists, the species I think I have the best chances of adding are:
Greater White-Fronted Goose
That's seven. So basically, I need to get LUCKY!
