Wendy Park at Whiskey Island, Cleveland OH
A singing Winter Wren was a great find at Wendy Park. Just four species of warbler showed their colors, though a flock of Yellow-rumped Warblers made a pretty spectacle over the causeway to the old Coast Guard Station. A pair of American Kestrels perched on wires above the railroad tracks.
Fall is here, with cool damp weather. Fall birds, too have arrived: Brown Creeper, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, and white-throated sparrows. Blooming patches of prairie and freighters coming and going on the Cuyahoga River were a bonus for the ten birders.
BIRDS 30 species
