A campaign to sell Cleveland International Film Festival movie tickets to the celebrated Finnish documentary, ‘TALE OF A LAKE’  and Western Cuyahoga Audubon donation tickets to support local conservation education programs.
TALE OF A LAKE (Järven tarina) is not just a hydrobiologist’s dream, this film will carry viewers of all ages along its course, revealing the power of flowing water that teems with eternal life.
With extensive grassland habitat, Carlisle Reservation also attracts Eastern Meadowlarks, which were singing for territory along with dozens of Red-winged Blackbirds.
Eastern Meadowlarks and Eastern Bluebirds are among the many species to be seen here. Black River Audubon has maintained 70 bluebird boxes in the area. Carlisle Reservation is the largest in Lorain County Metro Parks, 1,917 acres. We will walk trails in the Equestrian Area, which has grassland, forest and some ponds.
A Pileated Woodpecker was just what one birder needed for his Ohio list on this 20-degree morning. The Brown Creeper was another nice addition for the seven who made the walk. American Tree Sparrows were numerous, as they had been in January and February 2017.
Caleb Rykaczewski of Mentor High won a $100 special award from Western Cuyahoga Audubon for his research on seasonal variation of food intake by raptors at a wildlife rehabilitation center.
Join us at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival for a fantastic listing of films (2 showings). Be sure to stop by our booth at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History to say hello!
Migration brings interesting birds. Last year's 2016 highlights of the walk were a Rough-legged Hawk in flight over Fort Hill and a Redhead duck in the pond at the Frostville end of the trail and Eastern Bluebirds exploring tree cavities.
