I saw an American White Pelican at 16:15 today (Monday) in Cootes
Paradise. (Probably a juvenile, but seen from rather far with no
scope.) Two white egrets, presumably Greats, were perched in a tree
beyond (north of) the pelican, who was standing on a log by a large
cattail stand along the north shore.
The birds were seen from the South Shore Trail, about 400-500 m east of
the Chegwin Trail entrance (which is just north of the McMaster
University football field)... hence several hundred m west of Princess
Point.
happy fall birding,
