Walking with Barbara Bauer in Cass Park today between 1 and 2:15 we saw three ospreys flying near the platform that is in what I think is Union Field. Two of them seemed to be interacting, possibly aggressively; one would land on a light, and the other would fly over and land there and the first

...a day makes! Yesterday (Sunday) I too went up the lake and thru Montezuma's Wildlife Drive and Tschache Pool areas, areas Laura Stenzler described Saturday. I saw no Canvasbacks in the main pool, although maybe I missed a few way across, and not too many waterfowl anywhere, and Tschache pool
