"For birders, spring migration is a difficult time to remain at or near home, but under the circumstances it needed to be done. So this challenge became a fun activity to get out and see what birds are close to home. Western Cuyahoga Audubon accepted the challenge with 21 members and guests of WCAS stepping up and finding 102 species over the 24 hour period. Wow." ~ Nancy Howell, Compiler
Join us for monthly Conservation Project Labs to share ideas and build projects that matter for people, wildlife, and the planet.
"It was a slow day for birding. Weather was cold and windy. We had 6 observers. 38 species were observed. The warblers were disappointing, with only 2 species, the Northern Waterthrush and the Nashville Warbler. We had good looks at the White-throated Sparrow, 20 were counted in several locations. Highlight was a first-of-year Great Crested Flycatcher." ~ Bill Deininger, Bird Walk Leader
What will we see in 2020? "In 2019, the 2nd 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." ~ Bill Deininger, Leader
Ever wonder how to attract more birds to your home without buying bird seed? Audubon’s Michael Goldman will explain how to do just that. By planting native plants in your yard you too can have a whole menagerie full of birds.
