Hinckley, Ohio is famously known for its annual Buzzard’s Day celebration in mid-March. The world-renowned event is proudly sponsored and organized by the Hinckley Chamber of Commerce, comprised of local residents and business-owners invested in this vibrant community located mid-way between Cleveland and Akron. Proceeds benefit local scholarships.
ahhhh … SPRING THAW
(April 8, 2014 – Brunswick, OH) Ron Kitson today captured a couple of Brunswick buzzards sunbathing on a neighbor’s roof top. Ron, who kindly shared this photo, is a regular Buzzard Day visitor who enjoys Hinckley’s pancakes and sausage breakfast. Thanks for thinking of us, Ron.
Thanks to our 80 volunteers, Hinckley Elementary School, Medina County REACT and Cleveland Museum of Natural History for making this the best Buzzard Day ever. Vulture Culture Souvenirs are still available online here.
