CAS UPCOMING EVENTS

  • November 18th 7:00pm – Fledge – Walter Gachuk –  This is the amazing tale of a pair of kestrels nesting and successfully fledging five chicks within sight of the West Side market in Cleveland!  Walt Gachuk had not been involved with birds for thirty years since he returned to his long-ago interest for this project. This webcam project is the first opportunity he has had in helping wildlife, but it was a memorable one for himself and his family. He has worked in the construction industry for forty years.

OTHER LOCAL BIRDING EVENTS

  • September 1st – October 31st  – Fall Warbler ID birding challenge – Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society – We love to observe the Wood Warblers in the spring. Birds are in their flashy, breeding plumage and they tend to concentrate in areas. Forget spring (for now) and look forward to fall and the warblers that pass through at this time of year. “Ugh, those confusing fall warblers” … nope, not really. Many warblers, especially the males, have similar patterns to their spring plumage. Yes, females and young of the year can be a bit tougher and there are some species that appear quite different in the fall, but not many. This is when YOU become a better birder. Click here for more information
