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.
