The bigger and deeper lakes in northern Minnesota are finally freezing over. This has pushed a huge number of Goldeneyes south and they are now hanging out in the Duluth harbor. The harbor is also starting to refreeze, which means for those of you who like opportunities to observe “eyes” from up close, that is becoming quite possible from the 1890 Interstate Bridge and the Aerial Bridge Piers.
Also found this Snowy Owl enjoying the sleet this morning down in the Port Terminal area. I suspect it does not mind having more food sources around!
