There was a light skin of ice on the water, and to show you how light Ring-billed Gulls are, they were standing upon the ice. The morning was quiet with a small amount of foot traffic. Today will be 60ish, but that is soon to be short lived. Enjoy the warmer weather while possible, as old man winter all soon be upon us again.
A man stopped me this morning, thrilled that he saw a Bald Eagle on Saturday, grateful for the beauty of our national symbol. I am grateful for everything that nature has to offer. Please do your best to protect it. If you see litter somewhere, please have it in your hearts to pick it up. You might be saving a bird's life. Thanks, caring friends!
