There is a bridge on Unwin Ave. near the entrance to Tommy Thompson Park which is a good spot to see a variety of waterfowl in winter.
In with all of these was a Greater Black-backed Gull. A Ring-billed Gull measures about 19 inches. A Herring Gull: 23 – 26 inches and a Greater Black-backed Gull: 28 – 31 inches.
This handsome, big gull breeds along the coasts of the Atlantic Provinces and occasionally winters around the Great lakes.
At one point, wet snow began to fall so I put some seed on a rock to see who might come by.

Here delicate snow-stars, out of the cloud,
Come floating downward in airy play. – William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)
