Birding Week Lectures

This May, birders from across the country will return to Northwest Ohio, the Warbler Capital of the World, to celebrate The Biggest Week in American Birding. To welcome birding enthusiasts and families to the Marblehead Peninsula, Lakeside Chautauqua will host free birding lectures from May 6-10.

While you visit Lakeside, walk the nature trails and lakefront path for scenic views of Lake Erie, pack a picnic and enjoy the many parks and playgrounds, shop and dine in the downtown business district and Village of Marblehead, and explore nearby birding hotspots like the Marblehead Lighthouse, Meadowbrook Marsh and Magee Marsh Wildlife Area.

Schedule of Events

LECTURE: WARBLER WARM-UP WITH MATT VALENCIC & KELLY STANEK
7 p.m., May 6 | Orchestra Hall | Free

Some of the prettiest birds on the planet are in Northern Ohio from April-October. Most are just passing through on their way north, but some stay here to have their babies.

Because we only see them for a short time every year, we forget how to quickly identify them. This presentation uses the authors’ photographs to help group birds by appearance and preferred habitat.

See all the warblers with eye rings on one slide. Learn about behaviors like tail wagging, skulking on the ground and walking along branches to help narrow down choices.

You’ll learn to appreciate trilling, buzzy and high-pitched songs to narrow down birds you hear but can’t see.

 

The event is finished.
