Help Blackbrook Audubon find migrating birds during its next monthly survey at Beaty Landing Sunday, October 25 at 8:00 a.m. Members and guests will meet at the larger, lower parking lot of Beaty Landing, 543 East Walnut Avenue, Painesville.
Blackbrook plans to monitor this site on the fourth Sunday of each month until March 2021. Wearing masks is encouraged.
The list of birds found is posted on eBird.org. Last month birders got to see four species of woodpeckers including Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and 15 Cedar Waxwings.
The trail is rated moderate on compacted gravel and has four access points to view the Grand River. As a Lake Metropark facility, Beaty Landing occupies an oxbow of the Grand River within the Grand River – Lower Watershed Important Bird Area (IBA). National Audubon designated this IBA for its unique mix of habitats: river, forested floodplain and open field.
