For the April 2019 field trip, Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society joins in on the third week of the Audubon Spring Bird Walks, held throughout Northeast Ohio at many locations. Spring migration is ramping up and Lake Isaac's varied habitats attract a variety of bird species, migrants and residents.
Attend all or part of an action packed day at Lake Erie Nature and Science Center! Programs and activities designed for birders, adults, youth, and families. Stop by to visit us at the Western Cuyahoga Audubon educational display, play a new bird card game, sample a cup of shade grown coffee, and learn about our Bird Friendly Plant Sale.

We had a surprising number of birders on this 2nd Saturday of the month bird walk for April 2019. We counted over 60 observers. We tallied 52 species. First of the year Solitary Sandpiper was bouncing around only 10 yards in front of us. Also first of the year Palm warbler, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Golden-crowned Kinglet, and Blue Gray Gnatcatcher were hopping around. We both heard the call of the Barred Owl and then later we were able to locate the Owl. Tree Swallow and Northern Rough-winged swallow also are back on their nesting grounds. - Report by Bill Deininger.
The monthly Second Saturday walks are a great opportunity for birders of all skill levels to enjoy the woods and wetlands around the Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Nature Center. New to birding? You will be amazed how much you can learn in this friendly group.
Join us for this introductory discussion on the technology tools that birders and naturalists can apply to their endeavors in the field and at home to increase their knowledge, improve their experience and support science and conservation efforts.
WCAS Bird Friendly Plants will be for sale on Saturday June 1, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Frostville Museum Farmers' Market, 24101 Cedar Point Rd, North Olmsted, Ohio 44070. The Frostville Museum is a living history of 19th century Ohio run by the Olmsted Historical Society.
Join us for the next Project Lab to connect with like-minded social entrepreneurs, share ideas, and be part of a project team to take ideas to action for birds and habitat conservation!
Stop by The Rock Pile Garden Center, 900 Nagel Road in Avon, Ohio on April 6 - 7, 2019 to shop for your spring garden needs. Tell your cashier you support Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society and a percentage of sales will be donated to support WCAS chapter activities. The Rock Pile is the perfect go-to shopping destination for spring planting and summer garden needs!
This presentation uses photographs to help group warblers by appearance, preferred habitat, and behaviors, such as tail wagging, which helps with identification. In addition, songs and ways to remember songs will be provided. This should get us prepared for migration!

Nature has always been a fundamental source of inspiration for work. From nature comes spirituality and an inner emotional vision. My favorite subjects are the things I love from the natural world: People, animals, birds, and spiritual visions and yearning. ~ Beth Nilges-Nehamkin
