"Yesterday, October 5, 2017, was the greatest number of birds collected in one day. There was a total of 63 birds with 38 dead and 25 live." - Amy LeMonds, Director of Wildlife, Lake Erie Nature & Science Center, 28728 Wolf Rd, Bay Village, OH 44140.
Northeast Ohio Fall Migration and Birds and Building Collisions Update
These are the total from Fall Migration 2017 all so far (only 2 were from before Sept 1, 2017):
The top 3 species found are Common Yellowthroat (#1 with total of 82), Lincolns Sparrow, and Bay-breasted Warbler. Blackpoll Warblers trail closely behind.
There are about 30 active volunteers involved logging over 500 hours (estimated) since September 1, 2017.
There is so much to learn from all the data we collected this year that we have only just begun to look at some interesting trends.
We recently had a meeting that had some good participants that may lead to building owners participating in getting these lights off. And we have had a recent commitment from First Energy Stadium home of our Cleveland Browns to turn off their lights.
