July 31, 2013


I have been following the adventures of a visitor to my fair city. Fortunately his visit is newsworthy enough that his activities are being closely documented.
"Cleveland has been hosting a mega-rare East Coast visitor for 39 days, now - an immature brown pelican. There are only two previous records of this species for Cuyahoga County - a one-day wonder on April 29th, 1990, and another one-day wonder, September 7, 2012 - both from Huntington Reservation. Overall, there's few records for Ohio and the Great Lakes! This summer 2013 individual is setting all sorts of records, and was still present on the outer Cleveland breakwall as recently as Sunday, July 29."
