March 26 & 27, 2011 Eurasian Wigeons still at Presqu'ile P.P.

Hi Ontbirders

If you haven't had an opportunity to do any waterfowl birding at Presqu'ile this spring the conditions are still excellent. Over the weekend we observed 20 species including the 2 male Eurasian Wigeons. There were observed both Mar.26/27 along Bayshore Drive just north of Lilac Lane. Also, in Presqu'ile Bay there were still over 5,000 diving ducks with a nice variety including Redhead, Canvasback, Greater and Lesser Scaup, Ring-necked Duck and all 3 mergansers. With the overnight freezing temperatures the number of puddle ducks were up and included Green-winged Teal, American Wigeon, Northern Pintail, Gadwall, Mallard and Am. Black Duck.
Good Birding, Bruce

Presqu'ile Provincial Park exit 401 south at exit # 509 follow the signs to the park through Brighton (about 15 minutes). Maps available at the front gate.
