Did you know that more than 200 kinds of birds live in Mentor Marsh? That includes the blue-winged teal, yellow warbler, American wigeon, gadwall, heron, American black duck, red-winged blackbirds, Northern shoveler and hooded merganser.
And bald eagles.
Yes, that’s right. There are a pair of nesting bald eagles just a few miles from your home (presuming you live in or near Mentor, Ohio.)
If you want to learn more about these incredible animals, come to our Headlands Branch at 2 p.m. this Saturday, April 11, for the latest program in our Where You Live series. Mentor Marsh Naturalist Rebecca Donaldson will offer all kinds of facts about the bald eagles in our backyard. (You can register for it here.)
The Where You Live series is our way of letting you know more about the amazing natural history of Lake County. We’ve talked about everything from the Morton salt mines to the other denizens of Mentor Marsh.
Come join us this Saturday for an amazing program!
