Rock Cut Monday

I stopped by Rock Cut today after stopping by work for a little while. (I had to make sure everything was going to be ready for the holiday.) The lake was only about 10% frozen thanks to the unseasonably warm weather. There was a decent smattering of waterfowl Canada Geese, Cackling Geese, Mallards, Coots, Great Blue Heron, Common Goldeneye, Ring-billed Gull, Herring Gull, and Hooded Mergansers. Also of interest was a Muskrat munching on some water grasses near the Lion Den fishing pier. I briefly stopped by the beach on the other lake at the park. It was frozen solid, but that is ok since I wanted to check the praire area there for possible Meadowlarks. I was rewarded with a Rough-Legged Hawk perched on some sort of tower. He/She stayed for about 10 mins as I watched until the Crows started to move in.
