The birds are back in town!
By: Mark Zloba, Ecological Manager
This weekend is World Migratory bird Day (Saturday, May 9th). Bird migration is at its peak right now in the Cincinnati area and on our Edge of Appalachia Preserve. All of our bird breeders that leave for the winter are now back in southern Ohio, Indiana, and Northern Kentucky and singing in their territories. Others are passing through and continuing on their merry way north. You have no doubt heard many of them while staying at home this Spring. To help you identify these wanderers if you see them in your yard or neighborhood, here are some photos from the Edge for reference. Enjoy!
Includes Cincinnati History Museum, Museum of Natural History & Science and The Children's Museum
