Like every spring semester the Ohio Birds class is in full swing! 56 students are eager to learn about the life of birds and how to identify birds in the field. We use our museum specimens to take close looks at detailed features on each bird and then apply this knowledge in the field. Due to the warmer than usual weather the last couple of weeks we were able to watch birds outdoors, at Blendon Woods metro park and last week at Greenlawn cemetery. So far we have seen some 38 bird species which is not bad for winter in Ohio! The highlight so far was a mature Blad Eagle that flew close over heads at Greenlawn cemetery.
