Here in Lambton County we are off to a great winter birding season! On November 22nd we were treated to a Harlequin Duck sighting! The picture doesn’t do it justice. It was out in the lake in the company of 2 goldeneye ducks and in front of about 600-800 redhead ducks. We know it was around the following day too, from e-bird reports.
The Harlequin Duck is uncommon in Lambton County, spending most of its time on the west and east coasts. Just about every year, one or two will be seen in Lambton County.
