Today, checking out the lake from the Springweather Nature Area
overlook relatively few waterfowl were present: a few Mallards,
American Black Ducks, Common and Hooded Mergansers, and one great Blue
Heron. Surprisingly there were no Canada Geese. Great Horned Owls
are once again nesting in the large white pine near the boat launch on
the west side of the impoundment. Also, a mature Bald Eagle was
perched on a stump sticking out of the water.
