Field Trip to Brookside Reservation, Cleveland Metroparks on Saturday, April 25, 2020
We will travel beside Big Creek to the Fulton Road bridge where Peregrine Falcons have nested in recent years. For accessibility, this field trip will combine "bird by car" and "parking lot birding"; with stops for some short walks, birder's choice.
"We had 38 species. Highlights were a fly over bald Eagle, both Golden-crowned and Ruby-crowned Kinglets, our resident Barred Owl and a nice look at a female Pintail." ~ Bill Deininger, Bird Walk Leader
The 87th Annual Series of Spring Bird Walks is one of the oldest citizen science partnerships between Northeast Ohio park systems, Audubon groups and other organizations.
What will we see in 2020? "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, Palm warbler, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Golden-crowned Kinglet, and Blue Gray Gnatcatcher." ~ Bill Deininger, Bird Walk Leader
Join us to see birds, wildlife, and explore mature urban forest and residential plantings in historic Tremont, Ohio.
Speaker Series: Emergent Mechanics of the Cup Nest and Its 'Mechanical Synthesis with Dr. Hunter King, University of Akron
Photo: Dr. Hunter King at The University of Akron received an NSF grant to study the collective mechanical interactions of disordered, randomly packed elastic filaments, or slender rods similar to twigs as used in birds' nests. Pictured here are "nest" materials in his lab. CREDIT Dr. Hunter King, The University of Akron
How do distinctive mechanical characteristics relate to structural demands of natural nests? Get your science on as we begin to address these questions through experiments with artificial 'nests', and observations of the construction process.
