Because of the number and variety of waterfowl by the Unwin Ave. bridge, I stopped there this morning en route to Ashbridge’s Bay.
As usual, there were dozens of swans.
I also saw two Greater Black-backed Gulls. A Ring-billed Gull measures about 19 inches while the Greater Black-backed can be more than 30 inches.
In addition, I found an American Coot and a Rusty Blackbird.
Birds at Ashbridge’s:
Poor robin redbreast,
Look where he comes;
Let him in to feel your fire,
And toss him of your crumbs. – Christina G. Rossetti (1830–94)
