Prospect Lake , winter spot

In all likelihood, the best winter spot is Prospect Lake. Here, surprises abound at times, and on rare occasions, some good ducks

End of the workday calls for a quick looker at the lake before calling it a day. And such, with free time left , from west lake drive, I spotted two very whitish ducks in the middle of the lake , along where ice met water. Its two drake COMMON MERGANSERS.

I drove over to the Peninsula  to get better looks; the mergansers were quite close, working the edge of the ice mass, quite beautiful in their bright plumage.

Hope they stick around...
