Watchers1

Garth Riley lead our December 9th walk at Humber Bay. Humber Bay East was pretty quiet, with few waterfowl and even fewer passerines. A large portion of Humber Bay East is still closed for shoreline rehabilitation work, but that probably didn’t affect the results too much. We made our way over to Humber Bay West for the second half of the walk, where we found a greater number and diversity of birds. In addition to large flocks of waterfowl there, Garth spotted 2 Iceland Gulls on the docks at the Etobicoke Yacht Club.

The greater number of birds on the west versus east side has become a trend in recent years. It may prompt a change to our usual starting location going forward. Read the next Bird Walk announcement carefully!

Here is a list of birds found on the walk:

Canada Goose
Mute Swan
Gadwall
American Wigeon
Mallard
Redhead
Greater Scaup
Long-tailed Duck
Bufflehead
