Buzzards return to Hinckley for 59th year

The buzzards returned to Hinckley, Ohio on March 15, 2016

Every year on March 15 since 1957, Hinckley Ohio has eagerly awaited the return of the buzzards at "Buzzards' Roost" at the Cleveland Metroparks Hinckley Reservation.

And today was no exception.

The first buzzard was sighted at 8:31 a.m.

Led by "Official Buzzard Spotter" Dr. Bob Hinkle, early risers raised their binoculars and cameras to compete for the first sighting.

The buzzard, a common name for the "turkey vulture," is a large, graceful bird with a bald head and red beak. No relation to the black, Old World vulture family, which includes the eagle, hawk, and kite, the buzzard is native to the Americas from southern Canada to the tip of Cape Horn.
