Watch the spring migrants return or travel through to their summer breeding grounds during the 85th Annual Series of Spring Bird Walks.
Birders have participated in Annual Audubon Spring Bird Walks since 1932. Watch spring migrants return or travel through to their summer breeding grounds. Walks take place Sundays, April 15 – May 20, 2018 at 7:30am and are led by experienced birders in Cuyahoga County and surrounding locations.
For all birders, this is a wonderful opportunity to sample the waves of birds moving through some of the top birding spots around Cleveland. New birders, be sure to be out on each of these six Sundays. It is a great way to start birding.
Audubon Spring Bird Walks are co-sponsored by Cleveland Metroparks, The Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland, The Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Geauga Park District, Lake Metroparks, Huntington Reservation at Lake Erie Nature and Science Center, the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes and Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society.
Walks are led by expert volunteers from Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society and other local birding groups. The walks are free to all.
