oops! sorry- I see you are in Ohio. Thanks.
Southwest Ohio, Preble County to be precise. Nearly all of my dedicated birding this spring was on my dad's property: a woods, a pasture with a small creek with trees along it, and fields and fencerows. This is why there are virtually no waterbirds, shorebirds, etc. on my list.
