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.

Description: 33 birders headed out for a fun morning of birdwatching. We were joined by the Kirtland Bird Club as well as guests from the Bay Village 60+ Active Seniors. 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. We missed both the resident Barred Owls and Wild Turkey but two Rose-breasted Grosbeaks were a nice consolation. Along the beach and creek we excellent views of Belted Kingfishers and the new prairie area was full of spectacular wildflowers. 44 species were tallied on the day.
