Stouffville Reservoir features a lake and many trails.
American Coots are duck-like but blackish with a stubby white bill, round head and body.
The lake also had about two dozen Common Mergansers swimming in it:
Common Mergansers are found on inland lakes even in winter if there is open water. They nest in tree cavities or on the ground near large lakes.
In with the mergansers were two Ring-necked Ducks:
The ring is seldom seen and they are best identified by the tall head and sharp peak on the rear crown.
The little white clouds are racing over the sky,
And the fields are strewn with the gold of the flower of March,
The daffodil breaks under foot, and the tasseled larch
Sways and swings as the thrush goes hurrying by. – Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
