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.

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
