Description: The second in a series of urban bird walks, co-sponsored by Western Cuyahoga Audubon and Tremont West Development Corporation, took place on Saturday, June 26, 2021. Dave Graskemper was our bird walk leader and Michelle Brosius supported the walk. We had 18 total participants. The morning was sunny and the temperature was 81°F, but seemed warmer. Rain had been in the forecast, but instead, the group was treated to a fair breeze which made the high temps bearable as little shade is provided along the Scranton Road Peninsula section of the Towpath. Highlights seen during the walk include a Lesser Scaup, who is suspected to be injured, and therefore, grounded to Northeast Ohio, Eastern Kingbird, Northern Mockingbird, Yellow Warbler, and Orchard Oriole. High counts include Red-winged Blackbird, Canada Goose, European Starling, Mallard, American Goldfinch, and Tree Swallow. A discussion was had regarding the field marks of a Ring-billed Gull and Herring Gull. A Ring-billed Gull is aptly named for the black ring that appears near the tip of its yellow bill. A Herring Gull has pink legs and a substantial bill. ~ Michelle Brosius, WCAS Field Trip Co-Coordinator
