An adult Nelson's (glaucous x herring) Gull was found today at Ottawa Beach, seen by Paul Mathews, Tom Hanrahan and myself. Also present was an adult Iceland Gull, at least until an immature Bald Eagle came by to scare everything off! Stops at various points along Lake Deschennes produced a total of 8 Common Loon, 1 Red-throated Loon, 2 RN Grebe, 14 Long-tailed Duck, 16 WW Scoter, 1 Black Scoter and 3 Surf Scoter.
