Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society sponsored its first "Second Saturday" bird walk at on the trails around the Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Nature Center. The monthly Saturday walks had been held for many years by RRNC staff. When RRNC changed the schedule, the leaders and birders decided to continue the popular Saturday walks with WCAS as a sponsor. The group welcomed several new birders. Some highlights for this walk were a Magnolia Warbler and several Wood Ducks with ducklings.
