Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Sunny, virtually cloudless; breeze from the west. Broken ice pressed along the southeast shore; a shelf of ice up to fifty feet wide runs out from the southern shore. Mallards paddle near the edge of the ice, gulls fly over it; two geese stand near the edge, on one leg like flamingos. Three mergansers swim southwest. Large floating corks mark radial lines, nets, and fish traps at half a dozen sites all around the lake. A loon calls and dives repeatedly near the northwest shore. Many loud blackbirds call from trees in the marsh.
