Science Cafe: Birds, Buildings, Bridges, Barriers and Baseball In the days before Moses Cleaveland hit the shores of Lake Erie, migratory birds didn’t have much trouble navigating the Cuyahoga River valley. Today, they run a gauntlet of ballparks and high rises as they navigate our habitat. Friday on the Sound of Ideas, we'll get down to bird business and find out how birds, buildings, bridges, and baseball can co-exist. Friday at 9am on 90.3… you can join the conversation call, email or even send us a tweet!

Harvey Webster, Director of Wildlife Resources, Cleveland Museum of Natural History

I tuned in for the last few minutes of the program and was thrilled to hear the end of the discussion on the hazards that birds faced during their incredible Spring and Fall migrations.  Thank you for having this discussion which can help educate the general public on how continued habitat destruction and urban sprawl impact on birds and on wildlife in general.  I hope that there will be continued discussions on this topic.
