Put this under, anything can happen in the birding world... Had to go to Cleveland Museum of Natural History yesterday and bird the way home to Tiffin. Cleveland lakefront was a little slow. But along US 6 just before the Cuyahoga-Lorain county line, in a residential area close to Lake Erie, I noticed a crow harassing a raptor which I thought at first was a Red-tail but as the bird began to try to escape, I realized it was a Short-eared Owl. All of this was above the tree tops at 12:30 PM and not a field to be seen... The owl continued north and, I assume, out over Lake Erie.
At the Lorain marina, I found the reported adult Laughing Gull resting on one of the sets of docks. There were 100's of Ring-billed Gulls resting on these docks but this individual was resting by itself.
