Andrew Keaveney lead our December walk at Humber Bay Park. It was sunny and calm - surprisingly comfortable for a December walk! Although there weren’t large numbers of birds, the diversity of species was impressive. Along with many of the typical winter residents and visitors, we found a lingering Great Blue Heron, a Hermit Thrush and two Orange-crowned Warblers. This was the first walk where we had the newly revised and updated CCFEW Bird Checklist. The new checklist has 206 species that have been seen on CCFEW walks. Thanks to Andrew’s keen hearing, we managed to add number 207 to the list: a fly-over Bohemian Waxwing!

Here’s the full list of birds seen on the walk:

Many thanks once again to Birds & Beans Coffee for sponsoring another very successful year of Bird Walks! Many of the walk participants typically meet at the café after the walk for a hot cup of coffee to warm up - especially after the winter walks.

Here are some photos from the walk. Many thanks to Anil Menon and Zeny Lloyd for most of these:
