> birds which winter on Lake Ontario go to breed. Right now we are trying to
> locate major concentration areas for LTDUs...particularly first thing in
> the morning (where do they first go to feed ?) and in the evening (where
> do they roost ?). We would greatly appreciate any specifc observations or
> information Ontbirders could give us on these kinds of concentration areas
> for LTDUs, especially in the Greater Toronto area. For example, to what
> extent do they roost in Toronto's inner, or outer, harbour ? What kind of
> numbers arrive at Humber Bay Park first thing in the morning, i.e. before
> sunrise or shortly thereafter ? Bluffer's Park ? Mouth of the Rouge ?
> Etc.....
