Sign of Spring: Mergansers in the Bay

We are waiting for the spring flush at home in Minnesota. So far only a few water fowls on Fountain Lake and Edgewater Bay. There has been a few Common Loons for a week. Not as spectacular as a few years ago when the lakes north of us were still frozen. The ice went out of both Fountain Lake and Minnetonka in Mpls the second earliest recorded. (over 100 years) The Bald Eagles and Turkey Vultures made there way back. Waiting for Kinglets which are reported in Freeborn County.
