Fall in May

With cooler temps, north winds, scattered precipitation, and two rare waterbirds, it felt more like a day in October than May. Below: a molting adult Red-throated Loon photographed off of Edgewater State Park at 7 am this morning by JB (originally found by Edward Kamposek on Sunday) and a Long-tailed Duck at Headlands Beach State Park photographed by Tom Frankel today. Also off note in the greater Cleveland region: Gabe Leidy scored 61 Semipalmated Plovers and 60 Semipalmated Sandpipers at Lorain impoundment today. Incredible numbers for the location and time of year.
