The viewing conditions from the East side of Stewart Park this morning were quite good; it's bright and although it is quite cold, there is very little wind.

The most notable birds were two Greater White-fronted Geese sleeping next to a small group of gulls and easy to find. If these two stick around for the bird count we will have a record. The species has been seen only twice before, and only solo.

I searched in vain for a Glaucous gull, but found none.

The raft of ducks is visible from there, but they are much better seen from East Shore Park. Among them were two Pintail, two Ruddy Ducks, a handful of Lesser Scaup, and a few Ring-necked Ducks. I was surprised to find no Canvasback.
