Andrew Keaveney lead our February 10th walk at Amos Waites & Humber Bay West Parks. It was a snowy, but relatively mild day, so much easier to take than our January walk. We had good views of many of the typical winter waterfowl, but we didn’t find any rarities. The highlight of the outing was a flyby Bald Eagle. It flew low over the lake, sending ducks and gulls scattering. Land birds were generally scarce. We missed some typical species, like Chickadee and House Finch.

By the end, we found 21 species. Here’s the list:

Canada Goose
Mute Swan
Mallard
Redhead
Greater Scaup
White-winged Scoter
Long-tailed Duck
Bufflehead
Common Goldeneye
Red-breasted Merganser
Bald Eagle

Ring-billed Gull
Herring Gull
Iceland Gull (kumlieni)
Rock Pigeon (Feral Pigeon)
American Crow
American Robin
European Starling
American Tree Sparrow
Dark-eyed Junco
House Sparrow
 

And here are some of the birds we saw:

One advantage to starting and ending at Amos Waites Park, is that it’s a short walk over to Birds & Beans for a post walk round up and warm up.
