SMEW - Dec 27, 2011 An unusual visitor.

A Smew is a small merganzer that lives in Europe and Asia. It is a very rare straggler to North America. But we saw it at Whitby Harbour. Lovely looking bird and was hanging around with the red breasted merganzers.


  1. Great bird for sure, rare as it gets for our area.


  2. I was wondering what unusual visitor you might have met/seen.

    With the barrage of storms and wind, its not at all surprising to find an uncommon visitor for sure. Happy to hear you were able to capture and share it with us all.

    Here's wishing you a New Year full of cheer and good health. May you cupboards never be bare, and your camera always at the ready.
