Wandered down to Penn State Lake Perez today to see if the ice had melted. It mostly hadn't except for one shallow bay where I found the American Coot feeding by itself. Only the second time I'd ever seen one; weird looking bird. I can see why they call some folks crazy ol' coots. Walking along I encountered a Skunk Cabbage whose spathe(outer covering) had open up revealing the heat generating spadix, adorned with tiny white flowers. Now the pollination begins. Interesting day.
