- Walked around Lake Cleone 12/14/09.
I saw a strange looking bird on the south side of the lake, on the water in the a sheltered cove. To me it resembled a common moorhen. But that makes no sense.
Saw a river otter in water on north side of lake, near boardwalk.

Yellow-rumped warblers myrtle population
1 Eurasian collared-dove
1 female varied thrush from the dirt path on south side of lake
