Team Notes

Participants: Lisa, Paula, John, Marsha, Nancy, Pauline

Weather: 65 degrees, partly cloudy, winds from the west

Location: Lake Erie lakefront,Sims Park, Euclid Ohio

Time At Location: 6:00am- 5:30pm

Notes:
Large number of golden-crowned kinglets, and turkey vultures were surprising. Open water species were scant though C. Goldeneye, C.Loon, and White-winged Scoter were interesting finds this early. No warbler or other migrant fallouts resulted in a low count this year.

Anecdotes:
This is our third Sit. Thanks to the genius who gave us this reason to chuck the chores for a day and spend the hours outside on a beautiful fall day!
