Northern Watersnake - 07 Oct 2017
Thanks to Tom Kemp and the Toledo Naturalist Association for allowing me to tag along at their Sparrow Search at Metzger Marsh and at Krause & Stange Rd. We managed to see a couple of Lincoln's Sparrows, tons of White-throated Sparrows, a female Indigo Bunting, White-crowned Sparrow, Song Sparrow, and Swamp Sparrow. A Blackpoll Warbler and Magnolia Warbler was a nice addition. Our best looks of the day came when a pair of Northern Watersnakes were found along the canal just north of the Krause / Stange Rd. intersection. This one was pointing directly at us, while the other had its tail to us.
