Ospreys stacked up

On Friday at Pelican Lake, the Ospreys were stacked up like cordwood.

There was a small patch of open water where the Pelican River exits Pelican Lake at Orr and there were 7 Ospreys hovering in the strong north wind waiting their turn at a fish.
Many other waterfowl were also present.

Lakes in the area are still ice covered with small strips of open water along the edges. A group of 6 Swans on Myrtle Lake were taking advantage of this.

Saturday we received a couple inches of snow (not welcome) and the small yard birds; juncos, white-throated sparrows, fox sparrows are taking refuge under the porch of my
house.
