After Work at Col. Sam Smith Park

A trip to the office would not be complete without a little after-work excursion to Col. Sam Smith Park in Toronto.  It was nice to get out for a little walk on a warmish evening (relatively speaking).  The bird numbers were not high but it’s all about the quality!

Long-tailed ducks were in close giving crazy good looks and a lonely White-winged Scoter drifted by.  The long-staying Snowy Owl was still at the marina. My sort-of target bird for the trip was ‘Red-necked Grebe’ which are easy to see here compared to back home.  They didn’t disappoint!   What more could you ask for?  Well sure – a rarity or two – but that’s birding!  You never know what you’re going to see (or not see).  Just nice to be outside.

RANT WARNING – The only disappointment this evening was the amount of dog poop in the park!  What’s up with that? I also saw used “doggy bags” just sitting along the trail.  Is it that hard to pick it up and toss it in the garbage bins? Sheesh.  RANT OVER.
