Several highlights include 23 Yellow-rumped warblers. Good looks at a Yellow-billed Cuckoo. The Cuckoo was initially on the ground, flew up at eye level for about a minute, then flew up higher before disappearing.
In October 2017, two Bald Eagles flew overhead and there were great views of two Pileated Woodpeckers and two Eastern Bluebirds. Fall migration reached a point when the only warblers to be seen were Yellow-rumped Warblers. What will we see in 2018?
I recognized that I love to connect to people and get involved in a community. As a part of my life, I want to keep volunteering even if I am in a foreign country. Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society gave me a great chance to do that, and I appreciate the many people that surround me who are always encouraging me!
Joint Field Trip with Kirtland Bird Club October 7, 2018 at Erie Street Cemetery and Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve Report
Once at the preserve the skies still had not lightened up, but the fog had lifted. It is a good day when going from the parking lot to the preserve entrance takes a long time. At the nature preserve 43 species were totaled without the group going very far at all. Chipping sparrows and White-crowned Sparrows were in the grass around the parking lot while Yellow-rumped Warblers, both species of Kinglets and Red-breasted Nuthatches greeted us in the pine trees.
Joint Field Trip with Kirtland Bird Club October 7, 2018 at Erie Street Cemetery and Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve
We begin at Erie Street Cemetery, a historic 8.9-acre cemetery located on East Ninth St within walking distance of Progressive Field. From there we travel to Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve, a National Audubon Important Bird Area host to 290 unique recorded species.
What inspired you to purchase Bird Friendly Coffee? I like the idea that coffee can be grown in areas where our migrants winter, and other birds homes have not been taken away.
Every day is an opportunity to preserve bird habitat, whether you are out on the trail or standing in your kitchen sipping a newly brewed cup of coffee. Birds and Beans links conservation and coffee together by providing Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society an annual rebate of 5% annual sales volume to put towards Ohio’s conservation projects.
Speaker Series 2018-2019: “Careless Whispers? Deciphering the Hidden Vocal Repertoire of a Common Backyard Bird, the Dark-eyed Junco”
Evidence seems to indicate that these “secretive” sounds are an important part of the bird’s ability to survive and reproduce.
