UltraBird May 23, 2013

The weather was just perfect. It was about 66 degrees most of the morning. The birds were singing like crazy in Hinckley. This is the first year we have "eBird"ed the UltraBird.
Below is our report for Thursday May 23. Thanks to Mary Lou Hura, Tom Romito, Penny O'Connor and Mary Anne Romito for participating.

The weather was quite a bit chillier. It stayed about 45 degrees all day. The birds still sang but the comfort level for the observers was considerably colder. At one point we adjouned to Cafe Ah-Roma in Berea to warm up. Still we came up with a respectable total today. Mike Pasek joined us today. Thank you.Terri Martincic heard a Great-Horned Owl at Willow Bend.

The wind died down and made the 34 degrees weather much more tolerable. It eventually warmed up to 55 degrees. Highlights today for the UltraBirders were Yellow-throated Warbler singing at Lagoon, a Brown Creeper was singing too. A mother Woodcock and 2 young did their Woodcock strut across the open field near Cedar Point Rd. We were joined by many birders today at Rocky River Nature Center. See picture at right.

The UltraWalkers, Stan Searles and Steve Mather walked the entire length of the Rocky River IBA today. Congratulations. They were joined by several people for the last 5 miles. See their picture at the right. The UltraWalkers and our board members met many people along the way and introduced them to WCAS and the wonders of our Important Bird Area and birding.
