Thursday November 10, 7:30am
Today there were only Paul, Rick S, Tony, Nina and me. We started scoping the Ottawa River at Ottawa Beach, where hundreds of Canada Geese were taking of into the rising sun. Tony pointed out a couple of Cackling Geese flying with the Canadas.
We walked over to the west section of Andrew Haydon Park and scanned the river. We were able to see 3 White-winged Scoters among the raft of Greater Scaup. We also saw a few Red-breasted Mergansers and a Mallard eating a large frog.
