Greater Mohican Audubon's annual Bobolink Festival at Byers Woods, on reclaimed landfill turf. See Bobolinks, Meadowlarks, and a variety other grassland specialists. Butterflies too!
An Acadian Flycatcher and a Cedar Waxwing on their nests plus singing Veeries highlighted this perfect June day. A slightly downy juvenile Barred Owl was another great find.
Rocky River View Scenic Slide by Bruce Buchanan, Stained Glass and Decorative Arts
I was attracted to the Scenic Slide because I've been a long time admirer of Bruce's work and because the Slide has special meaning to me - I've hiked and walked a lot of the pathway that runs along the Rocky River depicted so beautifully in the Scenic Slide.
New to birding? You will be amazed how much you can learn in this friendly group.
The weather was overcast, in the low 60's, and a bit breezy, reminiscent of mid-April. A few layers of jackets and sweaters kept us warm as did the camaraderie of members and guests. A nice variety of plants were brought and exchanged; houseplants, bulbs, seeds, ferns, tubers and more graced the table and all found homes.
The final meeting of the 2016-2017 year is the Western Cuyahoga Audubon picnic and plant exchange. Bring your dinner (grill will be available for cooking), your family or friends AND bring any plants, seeds, bulbs that need homes.
Birders enjoyed a sunny warm summer day at Acacia Reservation, a former golf course returning to nature. Baltimore Orioles nest here, as well as numerous Barn Swallows. Two Bald Eagles flew over, as did three Green Herons and two Red-tailed Hawks.
Wendy Weirich will lead this walk at Acacia Reservation, a 155-acre former golf course returning to a natural state.
