It's Spring! (sort of)

It is definately starting to feel like spring outside.  I had my first grackle for Hancock County of the year leaving a "calling card" on my car this morning.  Over at Camp Berry, where I stopped by to talk to the camp manager, I heard several Red-winged Blackbirds fly overhead.
At the Wastewater Treament plant just beside I-75 in Findlay sported Several Redheads and a Lesser Scaup.
The Findlay Reservoirs are still iced-over, but will be opening soon.  The shoreline is starting to show water.  Of course this didn't stop the ice fishermen from being out there.  At least three were on #2 at noon on Saturday.  I rather enjoy fishing but I'm sorry, I don't get it.  You couldn't pay me enough to walk out on solidified water, especially when it's melting!
