A pair of Hooded Mergansers were on the Otonabee River between Locks 23 and 24. The Red-necked Grebe was still present at the same location and kept chasing the mergansers when they approached too close. The grebe would dive and surface close to a mergasner then flutter across the water towards the merganser. A male Ring-necked Duck was present on Little Lake yesterday and today. Several American Robins were calling this afternoon along Westbrook Drive.
