A surprise Long-eared owl was calling at the dunes (Girdham Rs) in Oak Openings Preserve Metropark at about 5:00 this morning. Also had 13 whip-poor-wills in the park.

I know this probably isn't incredibly late (I seem to remember seeing the them on the boardwalk in May before), but would you venture a guess as to the latest long-eared we've had in the area?

I tried for the Owl at 5am this morning. No luck.
Although Terri and I did observe a Olive sided Flycatcher at this spot about 9am this morning.

Brandon, actually, this is an extraordinarily late record for a Long-eared owl. There is a single Toledo area breeding record - a nest with six young discovered by Laurel Van Camp at Reno Beach on May 11, 1942. Otherwise, the latest spring departure, as best I know, is way back on April 28, 1940! The lateness of this record certainly raises the possibility of nearby nesting.

Very cool Matt. Perhaps I was mistaken about timing out at Magee. Could of swore it was May. We'll have to keep an eye on that area.
