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.
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.

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.
Special Event: "Bird Migration Knows No Boundaries" with Imad al-Atrash, Global Environmentalist, Wednesday, September 14, 2016
Every autumn and spring, half a billion birds of about 280 species pass over the Levant, including Palestine, Israel and Jordan, migrating between northern Europe to eastern and southern Africa.
In the marshier areas, Soras were seen in two different places – on occasion, providing great lasting views. Our gathering of birders was a great sight to see.
The Sandspit at Conneaut often attracts an array of exciting shorebirds. We are partnering together with Kirtland Bird Club for this field trip.
Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society joined with Kirtland Bird Club for birding on the Lake Erie shore. Scopes were essential for most sightings, but a group of Common Loons flew over the group at the start of the field trip.
