From the Archives: Second Saturday Bird Walk May 11, 2019 at Rocky River Nature Center Report
"The Second Saturday of the month Bird Walk had over 50 observers. We chased down 69 species on a cool, sunny morning. We had 15 warbler species, in several "waves", in several locations. The Pileated Woodpecker was making several trips to his nesting location. A pair of Red-headed Woodpeckers made a grand appearance and hopefully the pair will stay and nest. The Barred owl was observed high up a pine tree, visible to all. The Scarlet Tanager and the Rose-breasted Grosbeak looked radiant as their colorful feathers flashed in the bright sunlight. The Veery made several close appearances, once only about 10 feet away." - Report by Bill Deininger.
