We continued from Lake Erie Nature and Science Center to Huntington Beach where we observed several Gulls and Hawks. We didn't have many duck species, as Lake Erie is still frozen close to shore and open water was far beyond our reach. Gull species included Ring-billed Gulls, Herring Gulls, and Great Black-backed Gulls.

Description: Four people joined the Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society hike. We started the hike with two people and two more joined in a little later. We started the hike on the bunny trail and found one Barred Owl! We continued from Lake Erie Nature and Science Center to Huntington Beach where we observed several Gulls and Hawks. We didn't have many duck species, as Lake Erie is still frozen close to shore and open water was far beyond our reach. Gull species included Ring-billed Gulls, Herring Gulls, and Great Black-backed Gulls. I tried hard to locate Glaucous and Iceland Gulls with no luck. There were also three Hawks present at Huntington Beach. One Red-tailed Hawk, one Red-shouldered Hawk, and one Cooper's Hawk (it was banded)! We watched and heard many American Crows overhead. We believe there were somewhere between 8 and 10 American Crows present. Also spotted my first Common Grackle of the year. - Janice Farral
