Subject: [Ohio-birds] Birding Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve
Despite the cool temperatures, overcast skies and slight sprinkles, the Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve had some good species today, Sunday, Sept. 3, from 8:15 to 11:30 AM. It will, no doubt get better as weather systems bring in birds. If you go on Labor Day, watch the traffic from the Cleveland Air Show. Here is the list I had from today:

Great Crested Flycatcher 1 Unusual plumage in that it had patches of white feathers on the belly and the patches of light colored feathers on the wings were almost a pale yellow, but the rest of the bird appeared to have normal colored plumage. Keep an eye out for it.
