Red-Winged Blackbird

Urban Birding with @CLEAquarium

Situated next to the Cuyahoga River and close to Lake Erie, Greater Cleveland Aquarium’s property can play host an interesting variety of bird species. Join an Aquarium educator to find as many birds as possible and contribute to citizen science as we log the data in real-time using the eBird app. Learn about different bird adaptations before searching for them in the field. The Aquarium provides binoculars and a guide to common birds in the area.
