Hello all,

I had the Western Grebe this morning (approx. 0915 hrs) at the SE part of Ashbridges Park. It was quite far out, so a scope is recommended. Make sure to scan each bird closely, as when this bird rests with its head tucked in, it can appear like a sleeping Long-tailed Duck, when viewed at a great distance. 

At Col. Sam Smith in Etobicoke, neither the Greater White-fronted Goose nor King Eider showed. There were about 25 Red-necked Grebes and 4 Horned Grebes.

Directions:
Ashbridge's Bay Park is found sourh of Lakeshore Blvd, just east of the Don Valley Parkway, at the foot of Coxwell.  Park in the marina
parking lot and walk south-east.


Good birding, 
Josh Vandermeulen
