Chilly Morning Birding

Springbank Park - near Wonderland Rd area, London, Ontario

Cloudy, -6c, feels like -13c.   wind W 19km/h

I went for a walk in Springbank this morning to see if I can find any interesting birds.  It was quite cold.  As I walked, I looked up and saw two large birds flying close to each other over the river.  I tried to get my camera on them but they were too far away at that point.  One of them decided to turn around and come back.  There were a group of gulls in the middle of the river and all of a sudden they took off  before the eagle flew by.  The gulls all returned to the rocks in the river.  Once again they took off again as the other eagle came along.  I got some shots of this one as I was ready.  I was pleased to see the bald eagles.

It was lovely to see these handsome Hooded Mergansers.
