Field Trip, Sunday, January 11, 2015

2015/01/03

Cincinnati’s Spring Grove Cemetery, dating back to 1844, boasts an amazing collection of architecture, sculpture, and horticulture. The Cemetery encompasses 733 acres and over 44 miles of winding roads, making it is the second largest cemetery in the United States.  A National Historic Landmark, Spring Grove is the final resting place of many of Cincinnati’s most notable figures. Because of the mature conifers and other diverse botanical specimens found in the Cemetery, it is one of the best sites in our area for winter specialties such as Red-breasted Nuthatch, Pine Siskin, Purple Finch, White-winged Crossbill and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. A map of the Cemetery grounds can be found at http://www.springgrove.org/uploads/docs/SG_Map2012.pdf. This trip will be led by experienced Cincinnati birder Steve Bobonick. The group will leave at 7:30 a.m. from the TJ Maxx parking lot (on Locust Street across from McDonald’s) and return to Oxford in the afternoon. Pack a lunch and bring binoculars if possible.
