This is what we saw when we first arrived. Lots of Mallard ducks in this area and quite a few seagulls.
The harbour was frozen and the sky was a beautiful blue.
Mute (orange bill) and Trumpeter (black bill) swans were plentiful down the path at the feeding area.
Three Canadian geese were making their way toward the feeding area. It looked like they were walking on water, but it is really ice.
The water was open at the feeding area. A man who was feeding the swans said that the birds weigh between 30 and 40 lbs.
Canada geese, Mallard ducks and swans all together at the feeding area.
A beautiful Mute swan.
We enjoyed the day, though the walk back to the car was a bit chilly. We were facing into the wind, but what better way to enjoy a beautiful winter day?
On the trip to the Marina, we saw a Cooper's hawk at the side of the road. He was gorgeous. After I dropped the boys off, I drove along the river and saw an otter. That was a surprise. I didn't realize otters lived this far south. I know we have them in northern Ontario. Interesting day.
