McIntosh Lake

McIntosh Lake

From the city park on the south shore, scan McIntosh in the colder months for waterbirds of any stripe. Shorebirding can be good if the water levels are right. Bonaparte’s Gulls often hang out here in November and a number of rarities have been found here, from Brown Pelican to Great Black-backed Gull. You never know what you might find!
