"Lakewood" count circle includes western areas of Cuyahoga County, from Lake Erie south into Berea and Olmsted Falls, and Lakewood and Cleveland Zoo too.
CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT 2016!
By Nancy Howell, compiler for the Lakewood Christmas Bird Count
Do you like birding? How about watching birds at your feeder? Would you like to be a “citizen scientist” and add to data about the birds you have seen? If any or all of these are something you like to do or would like to know more about, then consider helping with the Lakewood Christmas Bird Count - 2016.
The Lakewood Christmas Bird Count, with its center point of the count circle located in Lakewood, OH, will take place on Friday, December 30, 2016. For those unfamiliar with the Christmas Bird Counts, they are the longest running “citizen science” projects with over 100 years of collected data. Information from the count goes to the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology’s database.
The Lakewood count circle covers a large portion of the Lake Erie shoreline west of the city, south to the northern Strongsville border, east to the Tri-C West campus in Parma/Parma Hts and western Cleveland neighborhoods, west into Lorain County just beyond the Cuyahoga County line (North Ridgeville, Avon and Avon Lake).
Left: Lakewood Christmas Bird Count (CBC). Like all CBC circles, the circle is 15 miles in diameter. The center of the Lakewood CBC circle is approximately Center Ridge and West 214 St. Click the map to enlarge.
Participants tally all bird species and numbers of birds, yes Rock Pigeons, European Starlings and House Sparrows are included. Birders may go out in groups or individually as long as the tallies are in the count circle. We would love to have as much of the count circle covered as possible which means neighborhoods, parks, cemeteries and any green space are fair game.
