There are a male and female Long-tailed Duck and one male and two female Common Mergansers at Salem Lake. There are a few hundred of other duck species there also. Best viewing is from the Marina area off of Reynolds Park Road. The main pool of the lake is still unfrozen. Salem Lake can be very good when all of the other lakes in our area freeze over. Maybe this cold weather will drive more waterfowl our way!
