Ducks on Lake

Got down to the lake today which keeps getting a little more open water but not ice-out yet.  Two hundred or so Common Mergansers and a few Ring-billed Gulls.  Also saw Swallows skimming the ice/water.  No Bald Eagle sighting today.  I did see a pair of Wood Ducks flying over the village this morning.  Scared a Ruffed Grouse for the third time in a week or so while walking my dog, Athos, in the woods today.  It was actually hidden down by a stream bed and came exploding up!  Good luck dealing with the impending  nor'easter tomorrow!!
