Subject: [wisb] Collins Marsh-2/22/17
After an appointment in Manitowoc, I returned to Appleton after
circumnavigating Collins Marsh. The flowage is still frozen over with the
ice that turns dark gray just before it disappears, but the fields both
north and south of the flowage were flooded. The usual mid-March arrivals
were there including Canada Geese, Mallards, Gadwalls, Ring-neck Ducks,
Redheads, probably Green-winged Teal--they were flying too far out to see
any field marks, one Hooded Merganser, a Bald Eagle coursing over a cut
corn field like a gargantuan Marsh Hawk, one Killdeer, one Sandhill Crane,
two rooster Ring-necked Pheasants, Horned Larks, a lone robin, starlings,
and Red-winged Blackbirds by the dozens.
Later,
