Ruddy Ducks, Pied-billed Grebes, Dunlin

Several new arrivals at the Bracebridge Ponds this morning. All were still there as of 11 a.m., as well as the American Avocet.

Ruddy Ducks in cell 2 (female and interesting leucistic male)
Pied-billed Grebes - four in cell 1 and one in cell 2
Dunlin in cell 1 at west side towards north end

The Avocet was swimming and feeding with the ducks at the north end of cell 2 when I arrived. Lots of loud banging from construction at the gas plant seemed to be making the bird a bit nervous and it flew back to the south beach. It had moved back near the north-east corner of cell 2 when I left at 11 a.m. Note that you would not be able to see the bird from the viewing stand at Kerr Park if it is at the north end.
