Subject: Lake Wilhelm in Mercer County
     There were a lot of birds today on Lake Wilhelm in Mercer County but not quite the variety as on April 8.  Common Loon, Red-breasted Merganser and Herring Gull were much fewer but Double-crested Cormorant, Bufflehead and Ruddy Duck were way up.  Bald Eagle and Osprey are very watchable here all day long.  The loon and cormorant numbers are only what I saw but there are likely more scattered around the lake.  List is combined of the four best vantage points on the lake which I believe are Launch 1, Launch 2, Marina/causeway and upper causeway.  Highlights only.
