Parts of the Richelieu River are open. On a rare trip to Quebec
this past weekend I was surprised at the amount of open water (and
gulls and ducks) along a stretch of this river between Iberville and
Highway 20. Parts of the Saint Lawrence are also open. Made me wish
I had allowed time for a few birding stops....
