It appears that Summersville Lake is completely frozen. Yesterday I drove down to the Gauley River put-in below Summersville Dam in hopes of atleast finding Common Mergsansers. No waterfowl on my short walk but was surprised when an American Pipit landed about 20 feet from me and fed along the river bank.
Also were several American Robins taking advantage of a single berry-filled holly tree at the road intrance.
