I decided to head out to Guthrie Park at Corunna where there is much action. On the way, I noticed a Snowy Owl perched on a post, as well as the usual Northern Shrike at Ladysmith Line. Each winter there is a shrike here!
Upon arrival at Guthrie, Mike Bouman already had the place staked out. After he departed for warmer climes, I took over and watched for some time. It seemed to be a better day with better conditions and more birds.
A couple of Iceland Gulls were milling about. They have been scarce this winter, while Glaucous Gulls are plentiful.
I counted around 20 Glaucous Gulls during my stay.
Lots of Herring, a few Great Black-backed and a Lesser Black-backed were tallied.
There was no sign of any rare ducks, but a local Black X Mallard hybrid made a pass with its partner.
Other ducks made some passes.
While others were napping.
It was interesting to sit and watch the activity, as it was constantly changing.
Farther downriver, I encountered two Great Blue Herons at the OCF outflow. They were FOY and seemed a bit out of place this winter. I was not able to get photos though.
On to yet another week.....
