Happy Family Day All,
A male King Eider, found by Brian Ahara and Manley Baarda on February 16 , can still be observed in the same location (Port Weller-St. Catharines). Jean and I viewed the eider at 3:30 p.m. this afternoon from the east pier trail. It was with many Common Mergansers on the west side of the canal, approximately 100 metres north of the canal wall (between the wall and the first posted orange marker).

Exit the Queen Elizabeth Highway in St. Catharines at Niagara Street. Proceed north 5 km. to the T intersection at Lakeshore Road. Turn right here and drive east .9 km over the Lock 1 bridge of the Welland Canal to Seaway Haulage Road. Turn left, cross over Broadway Avenue and continue on Seaway Haulage Road (as it parallels the Welland Canal) to the barrier that stops all traffic. Park here (off to the side) and walk out the west side bicycle path (not the main gravel road). Once along side the canal, immediately start looking for the bird
