The evening of April 24th was drippy and getting dark, but I wanted to see if the Loons were gathering again. The loons were there but they were scattered throughout the lake. Instead a pair of Ruddy Ducks was the find on Fountain Lake near Dane Bay. The next day I went out hunting for the ducks but no luck. Instead a Great Egret was hanging out at the Channel by Brookside School. An Osprey was flying overhead several times but no chance at a shot, may be next time.
