Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] 1/7/18 - Lake George Canal - East Chicago (Lake Co.)
With the cold weather freezing a lot of the water in LakeCounty, I decided to check the Lake George Canal in East Chicago this afternoon,which typically stays open. I checked the canal from three different bridges(W. Columbus Drive, W. Chicago Avenue, and W. 151st). I was also pleased to have a single Common Redpoll and a Sharp-shinned Hawk in my backyard today. Below is mylist.
