After yesterday’s post boasting of 100’s of Golden-crowned Kinglets at Ashbridge’s Bay, I received several e-mails from people who went there this morning and didn’t find a single kinglet. My apologies. It seems that dozens of them had flown to Humber Bay to enrich this morning’s walk.
In addition we had several Horned Grebes who are on there way from the south-eastern United States Atlantic coast to north-western Canada and Alaska to breed.
Just as yesterday, there were many Brown Creepers:
Species list: horned grebe, red-necked grebe, double-crested cormorant, mute swan, Canada goose, mallard, gadwall, long-tailed duck, common goldeneye, bufflehead, red-breasted merganser, common merganser, ring-billed gull, mourning dove, northern flicker, downy woodpecker, black-capped chickadee, winter wren, American robin, golden-crowned kinglet, European starling, house sparrow, red-winged blackbird, common grackle, brown-headed cowbird, northern cardinal, American goldfinch, dark-eyed junco, song sparrow.

Some views of the park:
Oh, how fresh the wind is blowing!
See! The sky is bright an clear,
Oh, how green the grass is growing!
April! April! Are you here? – Dora R. Goodale (1866–1953)
