Still Cold! - 23 Feb 2015

A week of subzero temps continue here in SE Michigan, and the ducks are not happy about it! The Great Lakes are seeing ice cover that is now more extensive than last year when the Polar Vortex ruled the Earth. Here along the Detroit River there is surprisingly a decent amount of open water, but duck numbers are a bit sparse.

This Ruddy Duck swam by the Wyandotte Boat Launch while a female Canvasback napped in the mid-afternoon sunight on an ice flow next to shore.

No warm-up forecasted for the near future...
