Hello there. The continuing WESTERN GREBE and HARLEQUIN DUCK at Colonel Sam Smith Park in Etobicoke, were re-found this morning by Joanne Redwood and I.

The Western Grebe was viewed in the lake off the western spit. Photos were taken and excellent views were had.
The Harlequin Duck also showed well, and was with Common Goldeneye and other divers in the eastern most bay of the park.

No sign of the Snowy Owl today but it is a huge area so it could be anywhere. 

Red-necked Grebe and a singing Northern Shrike(first I've ever heard) were other highlights.
