Ontario Beach and Charlotte Pier • January 16


Ontario Beach and Charlotte Pier, Monroe, US-NY
Jan 16, 2012
Protocol: Incidental
Comments:     It was a partially sunny and 30F noontime stop at Charlotte Pier. The raft of Long-tailed Ducks was up to thirty birds and I saw a raft of a dozen Common Mergansers near Summerville Pier. Above the mergansers on Summerville Pier sat the Snowy Owl by one of the posts. I ran into local birder Jay Greenberg, who was engaged in the Waterfowl Count, and it was he who pointed out the Snowy Owl's location to me. It was a nice noontime break!
