Join us as we watch migratory birds return or travel through our area towards their summer breeding grounds during the 86th Annual Series of Spring Bird Walks. Celebrate one of the oldest citizen science partnerships with a total of 6,160 Spring Bird Walk checklists entered into eBird, dating back to 1955!
We had 36 observers that attended the bird walk. We only had 35 species, with only two warbler species. It was a slow night for birding activity. However we had excellent looks at a Barred Owl and one Owlet. Every one had good looks. The owl treated us with its song "Who cooks for you, who cooks for you-all" several times. All observers were thrilled at this vocalization. Three Red-headed Woodpeckers put on a nice display for all. We finished the walk with the Oriole rescue. - Bill Deininger, Bird Walk Leader
The Second Saturday of the month Bird Walk had over 50 observers. We chased down 69 species on a cool, sunny morning. We had 15 warbler species, in several "waves", in several locations. The Pileated Woodpecker was making several trips to his nesting location. A pair of Red-headed Woodpeckers made a grand appearance and hopefully the pair will stay and nest. The Barred owl was observed high up a pine tree, visible to all. The Scarlet Tanager and the Rose-breasted Grosbeak looked radiant as their colorful feathers flashed in the bright sunlight. The Veery made several close appearances, once only about 10 feet away. - Report by Bill Deininger.
The southern shore of Lake Erie is one of the principal stopovers for migrating warblers in need of rest and refueling enroute to their nesting grounds in Canada. We will walk the woods and fields of Huntington Reservation, from Lake Erie Nature Nature and Science Center to the lake and back. Chances are very good for a look at nesting Barred Owls and Red-headed Woodpeckers near the nature center.
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.

Bird species that pass through Northeast Ohio during migration or live here in spring and summer, are also found on Central and South American forested coffee plantations in the winter. Some, like the enchanting, tree-top loving Cerulean Warbler, are declining. One important reason is the habitat they depend on in Latin America is degrading or disappearing, much of it for agricultural use.
One of the biggest success stories in conservation was the reintroduction of the Peregrine Falcon to the eastern U.S. In Ohio, cities, such as Columbus, Toledo, Cleveland and other “urban mountains” became the stronghold of the falcons. Chad and Chris Saladin have been falcon watchers and trackers for a long time and know the history of many of the pairs of birds in and around northeast Ohio. Find out how the falcons are faring on the bridges and buildings of the urban canyons.
Bid on this beautiful collection of creative masterpieces donated by the artists themselves to fundraise for chapter conservation programs for the birds. Plan to attend the Tue May 7th speaker program hosted at the Rocky River Nature Center and WCAS Peeps, please bid generously! Proceeds support chapter conservation activities.
Walking the trail we encountered common birds, American Robin, Blue Jay, American Goldfinch, Northern Cardinal, Red-bellied and Downy Woodpeckers and more. Rounding a bend on the trail with a different view of the lake, a Double-crested Cormorant came in for a landing and later a flock of six cormorants flew over. A Blue-headed Vireo sang and was seen by most, but lighting was terrible due to overcast skies, so the beauty of this early vireo was lost.
Project Labs connect with like-minded social entrepreneurs, share ideas, and support project teams who take ideas to action for birds and habitat conservation. Saturday's Lab will work on final preparations for the Bird Friendly Plant Project. Join us!
