Diane Deming spotted three mute swans flying around the east end of the lake this morning looking for a place to land. As you can see, the dark colored juvenile was with them, perhaps learning how to take off and land on ice.
For those not at the lake right now, here’s a quick update. The lake has frozen over in most areas. But after the initial freeze, the rains came leaving a layer of water on the surface. Today, November 23rd, the temperature are in the upper 40s. If you’re interested in keeping up with changes on the lake in real time, check out the DamCam also on this website. It provides live video of the Palmer Dam at the east of Clark Lake.
