Erv's Field Notes #18 (1/2/2012)

What a difference a day makes!  On my way in to work this morning both lakes had turned from rough, open water to glazed over with a sheet of ice.  Only the south-central shore of the south lake was open enough for all the bird life to congregate.

Here are Erv's note from yesterday:

Monday, January 2, 2012, 1:30-3:30. Sunny, temperature in the 20's, brisk wind blowing from the northwest. The wind has helped prevent the water from freezing in the lakes and the only ice today is that which is frozen on the rocky shoreline. When the wind dies tonight, the lakes will most surely freeze over.

I walked around the lakes today with Kevin Kane. We took our cameras and took a lot of pictures. Kevin has created a blog with lots of information. Anyone can read or post messages of observations at the Park. The link is: http://adahaydenpark.blogspot.com/. This will be a great supplement to the web site. Kevin and I met Wolf Oesterreich who later posted the report  (below).
