Field Notes No. 23 (Feb 11, 2012)

Saturday, February 11, 2012, 12:30 to 2:00 pm. Bright sunshine, temperature 19 degrees F., brisk wind from the northwest.

North lake completely frozen over except for an opening under the bridge and some open water near the shore.

South lake is about two-thirds frozen with a large area of open water in the center. Most of the geese and ducks were sleeping on the ice on the west side of the open water area. Numbers are about the same as previous reports. I spotted one male Common Goldeneye duck. A juvenile eagle was in the air over the Skunk River east of the park.
