While taking part on the Massena-Cornwall CBC this morning we spotted the Smew at 8:45a.m. off the west end of Ault Island from the foot bridge near the Guest house at Upper Canada Village. The Smew was with a small group of Common Mergansers. After watching it for a while the group fly east and disappeared around the west end of the island. It was relocated and observed flying west along the shoreline and landing off Chrysler Farm Monument in Upper Canada Village. A bout five minutes it flew east and disappeared around the southwest tip of Ault. During the latter part of the afternoon it was observed off the south side of Ault Island. This bird does move around the general area and is usually with mergansers, either Hooded or Common. If you do locate the Smew please post to Ontbirds. Also, remember the OFO Birding code of ethics.
