Fall is an excellent time to plant and prepare for spring growth. Don't be fooled by the dormant appearance. Remember, a yard full of exotic plants does not meet the dietary and forage needs that native bird friendly plants can for our Northeast Ohio birds, bees, and wildlife to survive.

Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society Hotspot Field Trip to Hawkwatch at Lake Erie Metropark (MI) on Saturday, September 21, 2019
Mid-September is a terrific time of year for hawk migration through the upper mid-west. While eastern North American raptors migrate through the area between late August right through early winter, the dates we have chosen give us the best opportunity to see large kettles of Broad-winged Hawks. In addition, good numbers of American Kestrels and Sharp-shinned Hawks should be on the move as well as a few other raptors and some songbirds such as Cedar Waxwings and Blue Jays.
Summer is ending and we may see a hint of the start of fall migration. 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.
Fall migration is just beginning. Erie Street Cemetery is a downtown Cleveland hotspot migrant trap. It's located downtown Cleveland at 2291 East 9th Street, Cleveland OH 44115 across East 9th Street from Progressive Field, just north of Carnegie Ave.
Join us! Be a part of the August WCAS Conservation Project Lab-Bird Friendly Plants Fall Sale Project! We'll be working together on upcoming Fall sales at Tremont Arts & Cultural Festival. All are welcome!
