Shreve Spring Migration Sensation Pleases Birders by Tom Romito, Board Member, Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society
Perhaps the most productive observation area was Wright Marsh on the northeast corner of the complex. At least 250 Redheads (Aythya americana) and 400 Ring-necked Ducks (Aythya collaris) were there in the morning. Other notable species included 50 Northern Shovelers (Anas clypeata), 50 American Wigeons (Anas americana), and 50 Northern Pintails (Anas acuta).
International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) or World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is the brainchild of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center (SMBC) and is dedicated to fostering greater understanding, appreciation, and protection of the grand phenomenon of bird migration.
The Council of Ohio Audubon Chapters (COAC) Workshop March 2018 began with seven COAC members attending a bird walk before the meeting.

Council of Ohio Audubon Chapters (COAC) Bird Walk Sunday, March 4, 2018 at Novak Audubon Sanctuary Report
Council of Ohio Audubon Chapters (COAC) Chapter Representatives gathered from across the State of Ohio for an early spring bird walk proceeding the quarterly workshop at the beautiful Novak Audubon Sanctuary hosted by the Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland. Our bird walk featured Ring-necked Ducks, Eastern Bluebirds, Ring-billed Gulls, and nesting Bald Eagles.
A Barred Owl was located high up in a pine tree. Everyone was able to see the Owl before it flew off. Cardinals were everywhere. Many gorgeous male Cardinals singing in many, many locations through out the entire walk. One Pine Siskin was spotted up high, but few of us were able to put binoculars on the elusive bird. Four Bald Eagles were spotted flying high overhead.
In 2017, 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. What will we see this year?
High School science teacher, Mike Sustin, highlights the biology and ecology of the black bear - once extirpated in Ohio – from life in the den to foraging behaviors to the management challenges facing Ohio’s population.
