This morning at sunrise I saw the Ross’s Goose on Bronte Creek at the edge of the ice near the boat ramp in Bronte Beach Park. The bird had flown a few minutes later when I returned. The two blue morph Snow Geese were in the Bronte Outer Harbour Marina but they also had flown by the time I left.
Directions: Exit the QEW at Bronte Road (Oakville) and turn left (from east or west) to go to the lake. The Outer Harbour Marina can be accessed from the end of Bronte Road. To search Bronte Beach turn right (west) at Lakeshore Rd. and left on West River Street. The area can be accessed on Oakville Transit routes 3 and 14 from GO Train stations. Here is a photo of the Ross’s Goose that I took a couple of weeks ago: https://www.flickr.com/photos/gavin_edmondstone/39337438404/in/dateposted/ Gavin Edmondstone Oakville _______________________________________________ ONTBIRDS is presented by the Ontario Field Ornithologists (OFO) - the provincial birding organization.
