Migratory waterfowl, and that bear again

Any of us who were lucky enough to be on the lake for ice-off last May saw an incredible number of waterfowl migrating through our waters. Diana got these great photos of many of them. Our research told us that those little horned grebes aren’t usually common to our area, even as migrants. We were especially excited on the morning when we saw at least 40 loons through the fog, gathering near the edge of the ice.

That was two hours ago by tomorrow the lake will be ice free.

A special thank you to Arch for the use of his pontoon boat and to Mike and his friend Bob for their assistance.
