The Buzzards Return to Hinckley

When: Sun., March 20 2011

Let Capistrano keep its wimpy swallows. Here in the wilds of Northeast Ohio, we have buzzards to mark the return of spring. The giant carrion eaters — a.k.a. Mother Nature's clean-up crew — return to Hinckley annually in mid-March; today they'll be celebrated throughout the town with a flock of related activities. At the Hinckley Reservation, for instance, you'll find hikes, bus tours, storytelling, live music, and a "Birds of Prey" program featuring our fabulous feathered friends. The free fun runs from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the park's Buzzard Roost, at the corner of State Road and West Drive in Hinckley Township. For a schedule and more information, call 440-526-1012 or visit Meantime, if all the outdoors doings pique your appetite, head over to Hinckley Elementary School (1586 Center Rd.) from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for the Chamber of Commerce's popular pancake breakfast. Cost is $6 for adults and $4 for kids 10 and under, and includes craft show admission too; for more breakfast info, call 330-278-2066. — Terry Jozwiak
