|The morning was cool and crisp. Just
a August morning for a nature walk. One dozen WCAS and Olmsted Falls
residents got up early and beat the heat to see the wonderful River
Park and surrounding cemetaries. Dan Hill, our Olmsted Falls local
cemetary expert told us lots of interesting stories about Olmsted
Falls history. This is a very beautiful park.
Here's a list of the birds we saw too. A female Scarlet Tanager was a fun surprise at the old Chestnut Grove Cemetary (known as Turkeyfoot to the locals.) Not bad for the dog days of August. A female Tiger Swallowtail was a non-bird highlight.
Great Blue Heron
Ruby throated Hummingbird
Eastern Wood Pewee
