Urban Birding with David Lindo Week | Lights Out Cleveland Hotspot Field Trip, Workshop, and Bird Walk
Join us for a Lights Out Cleveland field trip to explore downtown Cleveland birding hotspots and learn how birds interpret cityscapes. Our next stop is Lake Erie Nature and Science Center for an informative workshop and dialogue about Lights Out Cleveland and Urban Birding, we'll enjoy a catered box lunch, and participate in a collaborative conversation with Tim Jasinski, Wildlife Rehabilitation Specialist, and guest David Lindo, The Urban Birder. Our meet up concludes with a bird walk at Huntington Reservation.
Help Diving Ducks Survive in Extreme Cold Temperatures by Tim Jasinski, Wildlife Rehabilitation Specialist
Ducks, mainly diving ducks, may need help with these cold temperatures so here's what to look for.
Warblers appeared in a flock at the end of the walk, making a circle in the shrubs and trees by the entrance of Lake Erie Nature and Science Center. Seven warbler species included American Redstart, Blackpoll Warbler, Cape May Warbler, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, Magnolia Warbler, Wilson's Warbler.
Enjoy a walk through the woods, fields and beach at Cleveland Metroparks Huntington Reservation. Early migrants will be our focus, early warblers or maybe late shorebirds.
Common Nighthawks high overhead and a fledgling Barred Owl delighted forty birders on this warm and windy evening. Colorful Baltimore Orioles sang at many locations.
Enjoy an early evening bird walk in Huntington Reservation. Meet at Lake Erie Nature and Science Center, 28728 Wolf Rd., Bay Village, OH 44140. Good chance to see Barred Owls as well as migrating warblers.
Barred Owls have nested next to Lake Erie Nature and Science Center for some years now, and the female of the pair sat quietly in the favorite tree on the edge of the ravine by Porter Creek.
Birders today enjoyed a hazy, pleasant day with crows and jays mobbing a raptor or owl unseen by any of the humans on the ground in the trees above Porter Creek by Lake Erie Nature and Science Center.
The shores of Lake Erie are prime staging spots for migrating birds on their way south from breeding grounds in Canada.
Barred Owl fledglings and multiple Swainson's Thrushes were highlights of this early evening bird walk around Lake Erie Nature and Science Center.
Migrating warblers stop to rest and feed before crossing Lake Erie on the way to nesting grounds in Canada. Huntington Reservation, around Lake Erie Nature and Science Center, is a great spot to view them.
