King Eider

Nov 13 13

The first Ontbirds report came in from Bruce Di Labio that there were three females on the Ottawa River at Andrew Haydon Park.   Then about 11 am, Anouk Hoedeman reported that there was only one, but that it had moved to the foot of Scrivens St.

I went right over and looked high and low for quite some distance on either side of Scrivens, but could not locate it. There were lots of other ducks and even a Hairy Woodpecker.  I returned home and got further posts reporting that it had gone back to Andrew Haydon.  So after doing some chores, I returned and saw some photographers with scopes - good sign.  Sure enough, she was there, but the light was starting to fade.
