Feb 1, 2014: South Lake Freeze and Thaw

Two days on the south lake side by side. 1/27/14 & 1/28/14 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

Thanks to the strong winds, the open water continues to expand southerly along the east side of the south lake.  Today, Mallards were concentrated at the south end, along with the Northern Pintail, while the Canada Geese grouped at the north end.

One third of yesterday's open water was now covered with ice.  This photograph was taken almost 24 hours apart.  The waterfowl are now concentrated in the north section.
