Gadwall drake

A first sighting and photo for me. On Monday I met up with Barbaralynne and her husband at High Park in Toronto. They showed me around the spots where there were a few different species of ducks and other shore birds. A few were firsts for me including Wood Ducks which I was thrilled to see for the first time. The lighting was poor where the Wood Ducks were because they were in a shaded area so those photos aren't good but just seeing them and hanging out with friends was the best part. We also saw some swans which was only the second time for me and Barb got a beautiful shot which you can see here.


Thanks to Barb and Ham for a fun outing and chauffeuring me around the waterfront. Wonderful tour guides, spotters of wildlife and most of all friends :)
