The lake opened up a few days ago, and already there are 100's and 100's of ducks and other waterfowl on the open water! Just today, I saw, Bluebill (Scaup), Goldeneye, Bufflehead, Ringneck, Hooded Merganser, and even a couple Canvasbacks. Of course there were also many Canadian Geese and 3 pairs of Mute Swans too. Also have seen many Sandhill Cranes making their way to the lake as well. I'm sure it was most probably this miserable weather that brought them in in these quantities; I wouldn't want to fly in this weather either! Should have a few pics to post tomorrow.
