There were 2 Black-necked stilts at Howard Metropark in Curtice (Toledo),
Ohio (Lucas County). They were where the road turns left toward the parking
area on the right at 3:30. They were not bothered at all by us sitting in
the car and lots of traffic going by. Close enough for quality video with
My old 2002 "Ohio Bird Records Committee Checklist of the Birds of Ohio"
shows no records from the 1st week of June and only 2 in the last week of
May. (Is there an update to this by the way?)
Funny story by the way, my wife and I talked about this very bird (and
others) at the Toledo Museum of Art while viewing the Before Audubon:
Alexander Wilson's Birds of the United States not an hour before seeing
these 2 beautiful birds. What a cool addition to northwest Ohio and bird
habitat. Good job Toledo Metroparks!
