Hello again,

Posting again for Bruce Di Labio who just (1400h) found a male Eurasian
Wigeon at Coot Lookout.  It was with coots and Ring-necked Ducks near
the vegetation on the far side of the water (200+ metres away) directly
across from Coot lookout.  He also said that the Barrow's Goldeneye was
along the same sight line as before, but was closer, taking shelter in
the lee of Gull Island's eastern tip (which reached toward Owen Pt.)

Directions:  Coot Lookout is the small gravel pull-over on Bayshore Rd,
about 200 m beyond the first cluster of 6 or 7 homes.  Presqu'ile is
best reached by taking Cty. Rd. 30 south from Hwy 401 and follow the
park signs once in Brighton.
