Two very large sheets of ice remain on the lake but much of the surface is now clear. A good count of redhead Goosanders today with nine present. They were fishing actively for a time and very successfully. They often came up with small fish and small pieces of weed caught on their serrated mandibles, suggesting they were diving quite deep for the catch. It was interesting to watch them feed. They were very sociable in their underwater pursuits. They spent several seconds looking underwater before diving as one sketch shows.
