The Buzzards of Hinckley Reservation

The return of the North American turkey vulture (known locally as the buzzard) to Ohio is a spring ritual, celebrated in the area around Hinckley every year on March 15th.
We wanted to see the whole event (although we didn’t make the pancake breakfast in town, whose small country roads were jammed with bird enthusiasts). When we got to the buzzard roost site at the Cleveland Metroparks Hinckley Reservation, Jessica and I took some video of the returning birds on what seemed like the first day of spring.
