The first day of fall greeted us with the coolest morning of the season to date. Temperatures were in the low 50’s but sunny skies made it seem nicer. We were treated to excellent views of Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and several warblers along the all-purpose trail through the woods to the fire station.
Walk the woods and fields of Cleveland Metroparks Huntington Reservation and the Lake Erie Shore in search of migrating warblers and other birds moving through the area on their way south.
Six warbler species, including eight American Redstarts, six Magnolia warblers and five Black-and-White warblers were viewed by the group in several locations. We had some good birds including a Barred Owl, a Scarlet Tanager, and a pair of Solitary Sandpipers.

Seven Magnolia Warblers were among the six warbler species on this walk in 2016. What will we see in 2018?
