Riverside Cemetery Field Trip

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Leader: Mary Anne Romito


Riverside Cemetery, founded 1876, is 90 tree-lined acres in Cleveland's Brooklyn Centre neighborhood, overlooking the Cuyahoga Valley.  WCAS was joined by the Brooklyn Centre Naturalists and a group of scouts, for a total of 21 on the bird walk. Overnight chill to the low 40's from previous mild weather limited bird activity. A Yellow-bellied Sapsucker was one of the few migrants. Nevertheless there were Chipping Sparrows, White-throated Sparrows and robins throughout. White-tailed deer also appreciate this urban green space.
