Scopes were needed to see birds on the lake, but a variety of waterfowl were present. Horned Grebes and Loons dove. Mallards and Redheads and Buffleheads cruised in groups, to the delight of several new birders. Two Belted Kingfishers rattled along Spencer Creek. Thanks Rich and Karen Kassouf and Nancy Howell for sharing eBird lists. The list below is a compilation. - Penny O’Connor, Bird Walk Coordinator
Bradstreet's Landing in Rocky River, Ohio offers easily accessible views of Lake Erie waterfowl. Grebes, loons, scaup, scoters have been seen here, as well as Cave Swallows. Depending on local sightings, we will either stay at Bradstreet's landing, or move to other nearby Lake Erie hotspots.
Joint Field Trip with Kirtland Bird Club at Bradstreet's Landing and Rocky River Park Report November 2017
High winds meant big waves on Lake Erie, a mild but wintry day with some rain and snow. Red-breasted Mergansers streamed east and west. Winter gulls and waterfowl have arrived. Bald Eagles soared overhead.
With any luck we will see cave swallows that day. Or maybe not. Would be great!
Field Trip to Huntington Beach, Cahoon Memorial Park and Bradstreet's Landing, Saturday, November 26, 2016 Report
Wind and wave action made it hard to hear birds, but Red-breasted Mergansers were easy to see flying west low over the lake. Loons, grebes and goldeneye fished close to shore.
