    What an awsome weekend! Through an email list that I am on for birders, I recieved an email saying that there was a Marbled Godwit in the Columbus area...How many Godwits are in Ohio right now you may ask...1 confirmed, this one. :biggrin:. So of course I had to go! While I was there, I visited a couple of other places and rounded off my Saturday. I will put an example of each species I saw and a link on the bottom to the rest.

    1. GBH Feeding:
    BirdingWeekend_04.
    NIKON D300    ---    410mm    f/11.0    1/250s    ISO 200

    No Flips, the Heron wasn't into performing.

    2. Green Heron strutting his tuft:
    BirdingWeekend_09.
    NIKON D300    ---    460mm    f/6.3    1/640s    ISO 200

    20 feet away and didn't care that I was there. There were seven there all within camera range and different ages.

    3. Virginia Rail:
    BirdingWeekend_13.
    NIKON D300    ---    450mm    f/6.3    1/400s    ISO 200

    Another rare bird for the area.

    4. Marbled Godwit:

    NIKON D300    ---    500mm    f/6.3    1/640s    ISO 200

    Showed up just as I was leaving..I had to go back.

    Almost forgot:

    6: Least Sandpiper
    BirdingWeekend_24.
    NIKON D300    ---    460mm    f/6.3    1/640s    ISO 200

    These were the shore birds that I saw that day, I will post pics of the land birds when I am done PP them.
