Their feet were not made for waking on ice - funny!!
They were calling for it and it was cold out there but who'da thunk it!! We woke up to a proverbial blizzard this morning and it is still snowing out there - albeit not as hard. The birds were not too happy - there were flocks at the feeder so I went out to put some more seed down for them. Lots of Junkos!! I noticed the raven on the ice feeding on something so we were out and took a look - it looked like a big fish - either a bass or pickerel - was being consumed on the ice. The otters may have been here earlier and caught it and left some on the ice for the ravens. It will remain a mystery.
We also had a pair of Black Ducks on the ice yesterday - they were just preening then went for a dip in the exposed water along the shore. The ice is slowly retreating but I imagine today's weather may slow down the melt a bit.
We are heading over to Mitch's this afternoon for a sauna, then back home for some ribs and home fries and a salad. Gotta keep the big guy fed.
See Ya Bye
