Hello everyone


I'm not sure if this can be seen from the Canadian side (Niagara-on-the-Lake).

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to posting on birding on the net, but wanted to report a razorbill at the mouth of the Niagara, near Fort Niagara.  While drifting near the coast guard docks, a lone razorbill was diving near the boat for about an hour on 11/8 (I've been trying to figure out how to post on here since then!).  At one point it swam to within 25 yards of the boat!

Also observed were some LTDUs, BUFF, and COLOs.

I didn't have a camera with me, but did catch this photo with my phone.

"When a flock of bluebills, pitching pondward, tears the dark silk of heaven in one long rending nose-dive, you catch your breath at the sound, but there is nothing to see except stars. This same performance, in daytime, would have to be looked at, shot at, missed, and then hurriedly fitted with an alibi." - Aldo Leopold
