Description:    Beginning at Humber Bay Park, both East and West, we will scour Lake Ontario for Redhead, Canvasback, Common Goldeneye, Bufflehead, Hooded and Red-breasted Merganser, Black, Surf and White-winged Scoters, Greater Scaup, Long-tailed Ducks, Trumpeter Swans, and others, late migrants and early winter arrivals along the shore, raptors, mammals such as Muskrat and Mink, possibly American Coot, Common Loon – and whatever else we can find! Northern Mockingbird is always a possibility at Humber Bay. There will be a number of stops to increase our chances of finding a wide variety of species. As mentioned we will start at Humber Bay Park, moving from there to Colonel Samuel Smith Park, on to Lakefront Promenade in Mississauga, and ending at Bronte Park in Oakville. Depending on time we may include a couple of other stops.

This is a full day’s outing so be sure to pack a lunch and snacks if you need them. Dress according to the weather, bring binoculars, a scope if you have one, a field guide and lots of enthusiasm. Car pooling should be possible and we encourage this practice as long as you are comfortable riding with others.

Registration is required by contacting David. We can accommodate twenty-five people for this outing as long as COVID restrictions are not reimposed.
