The Red-necked Grebes nesting in Bronte Harbour are continuing to incubate.
As of this evening there were a total of five eggs. Four of these eggs are
heavily soiled and one is fairly white indicating that it was only laid a
few days ago.
There has obviously been some egg loss. On June 10 there were seven eggs.
They have been incubating since at least May 7. We heard a third-hand report
that there was a hatching two weeks ago by that the chick was taken by a
An Osprey flew by while we were watching the grebes.
Directions: Exit the QEW at Bronte Rd. (Oakville) and go to the lake and
turn left, the only option. The nest is just east of the Lighthouse
