Our February 7th walk was lead by Garth Riley at Humber Bay East. It was another cold, snowy one, but fortunately it wasn’t windy. Cold weather meant there was a lot of ice in the protected bays, but not many birds close to shore. We still managed to find a nice variety of birds. The nicest surprise was a Bald Eagle. It was seen perched in a tree at the eastern end of the park, but had moved on before we were close enough to give most people a look. We managed to find a total of 26 species. A full list is below.

Mute Swan
Gadwall
