Andrew Haydon Park

Sunday April 19, 12 noon

Barbara and I were up to our ears in Scouting stuff, so needed a quick fix, and popped out to Andrew Haydon Park for a picnic lunch and birding. Right away we noticed a pair of Hooded Mergansers in the east pond. We checked the Ottawa River and saw a few dozen Lesser Scaup, some close enough to shore to photograph. We had our lunch, and were amused by the boss Ring-billed Gull who patiently waited for scraps, while keeping the others at bay. We circled the ponds, and got fairly close to the mergansers.
