Open for business lake

Most of Prospect Lake opened Sunday thanks to the warm melt and that attracts duck business.

As multiple 140 plus NORTHERN SHOVELERS scattered about on Prospect Lake, I spotted a drake RED BREASTED MERGANSER in the middle, an uncommon species here in Prospect.Though a common winter offshore species, this merganser is quite welcomed here at the Lake. That's the wonder of a lake that's not completely frozen:it brings in the ducks.
