HINCKLEY TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WJW) – The buzzards are back!

It’s once again time for the annual Buzzard Day celebration at the Hinckley Cleveland Metroparks Reservation.

The event attracts bird-watchers of all ages to NE Ohio to watch the hawk-like, birds of prey return to the area — a sure sign Spring is coming!

The family-fun celebration is in its 66th year and will take place Sunday, March 19 from 7 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Fox 8’s Kenny Crumpton put on his binoculars early this morning hoping to be one of the first to spot the unique migratory bird.

This year’s event includes an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast, an art and craft fair, as well as Buzzard Buzz Carnival, and Buzzard Buzz Pet Contest. More details can be found here.
