East 72 St. and Lakeview Cemetary February 8, 2009
Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society
Waterfowl were abundant in icy Lake Erie on this mild day at East 72nd Street. White-winged Crossbills prompted a side trip to Lake View Cemetery. We were thrilled to see these boreal acrobats dismantle pine cones by the Garfield Monument.
18 birders today at East 72nd street. People showed up a little later, so not all were in the picture.
At East 72nd Street: 21 species
American Black Duck
Great Black Backed Gull
