    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:

    No Flips, the Heron wasn't into performing.

    2. Green Heron strutting his tuft:

    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:
