Note those vultures circling overhead? No, they haven’t come for the Cleveland economy — not this time — but rather in time for the annual return of the buzzards to Hinckley in Medina County.

Buzzard Sunday 2017 is the milestone 60th anniversary community-oriented celebration of the scavenger birds’ migratory reappearance in Medina County (sort of a Cleveland-joke version of the swallows returning to Capistrano, California).

Visitors can expect a pancake breakfast, storytelling, singing, refreshments, vendors, guided hikes, a pet contest, crafts, clowns and live-animal programs, featuring rehabilitated birds of prey, in addition to other fauna.

There will be several venues, including Town Hall, the Buzzard Roost spotting site in the Metroparks and Brongers Park. Shuttle buses can take patrons between the hotspots. Admission is free to the general public, and be sure to bring warm clothes and binoculars.
