Hugh Currie lead our November 16th walk at Humber Bay Park. It was a very wintery day for mid-November, with much of the snow that had fallen earlier in the week, still on the ground. In a couple of months, we might think that -7C is comfortable, but this early in the season, it’s cold! Despite the wintery weather, there were few winter waterfowl here yet. We made up for the lack of individuals with a nice diversity of species. Notable were a Peregrine Falcon, a flyby Cackling Goose, and a fairly cooperative Fox Sparrow by the parking lot at the end of the walk. We ended with 32 species and one hybrid (a Mallard X Black Duck).

Here’s a full list:
