CCFEW Bird Walk - Sept. 10

Don Burton lead our November 14th walk at Humber Bay Park East. Mild (for mid-November) weather, sunny skies and light breeze made for a pleasant day to be out by the lake. The birds were less cooperative. Birds were scarce - especially land birds. We managed to find 28 species, including some late migrating hawks, and the best bird - a late Catbird. After a brief initial sighting, Andrew Keaveney managed to coax it out of the Sea Holly thicket long enough for everyone to get a good look.

Here’s out full list of species seen:

Canada Goose
Mute Swan
Long-tailed Duck
Common Goldeneye
Hooded Merganser
Red-breasted Merganser
Ruddy Duck
Common Loon
Red-necked Grebe
Northern Harrier
Red-tailed Hawk

Ring-billed Gull
Herring Gull
Mourning Dove
American Crow
Black-capped Chickadee
Gray Catbird
Northern Mockingbird
European Starling
American Tree Sparrow
Song Sparrow
Northern Cardinal
House Finch

We missed several common species.
