Hugh Currie led our November walk at Humber Bay Park. Despite a weather forecast that promised all day rain, we dull but dry conditions for the walk. Hugh, a retired meteorologist, assured us there would be no rain until after the walk. There was a general lack of waterfowl, and a large portion of the park is closed for construction, but we still managed to find a nice variety of birds, including some rather late Ruby-crowned Kinglets.

As usual, especially in the winter, a large group of participants headed over to Birds & Beans Café after the walk to warm up.

Here’s the list of birds found on the walk:

Canada Goose
Mute Swan
Northern Shoveler
Gadwall
Mallard
White-winged Scoter
Long-tailed Duck
Bufflehead
Common Goldeneye
Hooded Merganser
Red-breasted Merganser
Common Loon

Red-necked Grebe
Double-crested Cormorant
Ring-billed Gull
Herring Gull
Rock Pigeon (Feral Pigeon)
Black-capped Chickadee
Golden-crowned Kinglet
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
European Starling
Northern Cardinal
American Goldfinch
House Sparrow

And here are a few photos from the walk:

Goldfinches become almost invisible in the winter.
