Jan 1, 2013: Happy New Year! Erv's Field Notes #50

The sun rises and welcomes the new year over Ada Hayden Park. Taken from the northwest corner of the park looking east over the north lake (-6 degrees!) - 1/1/13 (Kevin Kane)

New Years Day, 2013. Clear and cold.

I wish all of you a Happy New Year in 2013. And, on behalf of myself and the Board of Directors, thanks to everyone who renewed their membership with Friends of Ada Hayden Heritage Park at the end of the year. Your support will help us accomplish our goals for the coming year. A special thanks to Jon Hunstock for keeping our financial records in order, and to Wolf Oesterreich and Kevin Kane for their frequent contributions of photos and stories on the blogspot. If you haven’t looked at the blogspot, here is the address:

By the way, the lake is almost completely frozen over. A large flock of Canada Geese, Mallards and one Trumpeter Swan are still hanging out in and around a small area of open water on the south lake. Ice fishing has started on the north lake. If the extreme cold weather persists, the open water will probably disappear and the birds will have to move somewhere else.
