WCAS invites birders to bird at a monthly designated field trip location, share stories to a public digital scrapbook, and participate in online community meet ups.
Walking the trail we encountered common birds, American Robin, Blue Jay, American Goldfinch, Northern Cardinal, Red-bellied and Downy Woodpeckers and more. Rounding a bend on the trail with a different view of the lake, a Double-crested Cormorant came in for a landing and later a flock of six cormorants flew over. A Blue-headed Vireo sang and was seen by most, but lighting was terrible due to overcast skies, so the beauty of this early vireo was lost.
For the April 2019 field trip, Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society joins in on the third week of the Audubon Spring Bird Walks, held throughout Northeast Ohio at many locations. Spring migration is ramping up and Lake Isaac's varied habitats attract a variety of bird species, migrants and residents.
In the more open field and brushy areas, Wild Turkey, Mourning Dove, Eastern Towhee, Brown Thrasher, Northern Cardinal, Eastern Phoebe, American Robin, American Goldfinch, Brown-headed Cowbirds, and Song Sparrows made an appearance and most sang or vocalized. Sharing the sounds of birds is important on these walks.
A variety of habitats around Lake Isaac includes forest and fields along Baldwin Creek as well as Lake Isaac. On a walk, the end of April 2017 birders saw 60 species. This field trip celebrates the 85th Annual Series of Audubon Spring Bird Walks Apr 15-May 20, 2018.
Western Cuyahoga Audubon birders will join in on one of the Audubon Spring Bird Walks for our April field trip. A variety of habitats around Lake Isaac includes forest and fields as well as Lake Isaac.
Blue Jays, Black-capped Chickadees and White-breasted Nuthatches were starting their nests. Singing EasternTowhees advised, "Drink your tea!" at several locations.
