Eastern Bluebirds greeted birders at the entrance to the picnic areas. A Ruby-throated Hummingbird sunned itself on a high bare branch, easily viewed by the group.
Pine Tree Picnic Area offers forest trails with a variety of colorful summer resident birds.
Midsummer can be a slow time for birding, but not on this pleasant sunny day. A highlight among the 52 species observed was a Red-breasted Nuthatch singing high in a tree. Other avian treasures were four species of thrush and a Yellow-billed Cuckoo.
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.
