Re(1): Bonaparte's Gulls

This morning there were two immature Bonaparte's Gulls at the Bracebridge Ponds, but no sign of the adult seen yesterday. One bird put on a great show feeding over cell 4 and then perched atop a pole for a rest. The other bird was swimming around cell 1 picking insects off the surface. Both were still there when we left at 11:50 a.m. as rain moved in.

An American Bittern flew up from the ditch north of cell 4 and a Green Heron was in the ditch by the dumping ponds. Several Swallows were feeding low over cell 4, including at least two Cliff Swallows. Six Chimney Swifts were feeding high above the ponds. Two Merlins went zipping past, but didn't seem to catch anything.
