Fairport Nursery road had more birds including a Cooper’s Hawk and Red-tailed Hawk. We located at least one Snow Bunting. The black, white and brown bird was continually flushed from the edge of the road by oncoming traffic, often flying right in front of the approaching vehicle. We were able to clearly see the distinctive white flashes in flight. A Northern Shrike was perched high in a bare tree, showing its unmistakable black mask. Two Common Ravens flew in for close looks at their wedge shaped tails and large bills.
On next stop was Sim’s park where we saw Common Goldeneyes and a couple Black Scoters. We stopped to watch a young tom Turkey in the front lawn of a home on Grayton road next to Cleveland Hopkins Airport. It was vocalizing and displaying for us on the snow covered lawn. We saw a Red-tailed Hawk and American Kestrel at the airport.
