Ice Out in March
Just this morning I watched as an adult Bald Eagle and, by its markings, likely a second year juvenile Bald Eagle had a meeting on the thin ice of Oake Lake, scattering the seagulls at their presence. At the same time, two Trumpeter Swans swam carelessly on the other side of the lake where the ice was already gone.
Uplifted, I walked away from this glorious sight and spent some time working on the computer. A few hours later I was astonished to see that the ice was out! The windy sun soaked morning created ideal conditions for this event.
The ice is out on March 29th!
