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: NIKON D300    ---    410mm    f/11.0    1/250s    ISO 200 No Flips, the Heron wasn't into performing. 2. Green Heron strutting his tuft: 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: NIKON D300    ---    450mm    f/6.3    1/400s    ISO 200 Another rare bird for the area. 4. Marbled Godwit: NIKON D300    ---    460mm    f/6.3    1/640s    ISO 200 5. Dowitchers: 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 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.
