The drive from Mount Vernon to the Bladensburg Community Center was a pleasant one on Saturday evening.  The sunshine was deepening to golden tones over the farm fields; the few clouds in the sky were shades of pink and on arrival, the temperature was perfect for standing around and searching the sky.  The attraction?  The annual Chimney Swift migration. 

Is there a sight more enchanting in the warmer Ohio months than a bluebird?  Bluebirds have the power, just by dint of their existence, to stop us in our tracks and keep us there until they glide out of view. 

Saturday, May 7th - in spite of the damp, chilly conditions, a friendly group of people met at the Brown Family Environmental Center for a bird walk led by Kenyon Professor Emeritus Ray Heithaus.
