After a quick trip to the Bean Lake cabin this A.M., to replenish the bird
feeders before the heavy snow comes in...we stopped by Lewis and
Clark/Sugar Lake and found a little open water near the picnic parking
area...where they continue to run the 'lake bubblers'.
There were thousands of snow geese (didn't take time to check for Ross's),
some mallards, and hundreds of Canadas in the water and on the immediate
surrounding ice.
One lonely coyote traveled the full length of the lake  east to west, all
the while eyeing the geese-gathering...am sure he was planning a
'snatch and grab' foray later in the day or night.

Many Canadas in the field just west of the campground.
Several Bald Eagles in the area also.

Near Halls, MO, west of hwy 59 where thousands and thousands of snows in a
cornfield.

The fyi was to let ya'all know of the open water there at
L&C/SLk...probably bears watching through the winter as there is
practically no other open water up here in NW MO.
