Bronte Harbour Revisited

Today Andrew and I were at a job site in Oakville and had a few minutes to check out the nearby Bronte Harbour.  As I mentioned before, this is a great spot to see all sorts of waterfowl species, and today was no exception.

We saw a wide variety of species including Greater Scaup, goldeneye, long-tailed duck, redhead, bufflehead, white-winged scotor and red-breasted merganser.

I love redheads! Don't be jealous Caitlyn ;)

Not many ducks look as nice as a male Long-tailed Duck
I also saw my favourite gull: Glaucous Gull! They are really big as you can see in this picture.  This bird is a 1st winter individual.

Unfortunately this time we didn't see any Snowy Owls or any Mink.  But so far Bronte Harbour has always delivered something of interest!
