Birders in Saint John might want to keep an eye on Major's Brook which runs from the highlands near Morley Crescent, down past McAllister Place, behind WalMart, under Major's Brook Drive, beside Best Western and eventually into Marsh Creek.
The section behind the WalMart, in particular, draws lots of ducks and some gulls to the parking lot behind Westmoreland Mall (?).
They are tame enough to impede traffic. I've only seen Mallards, Blacks and Pintails on my few stops but who knows? Last week there were two Iceland and one 1st year Glaucous Gull sitting around the parking lot and easily approachable in a vehicle.
