American Coots and Lake Passing Gas

American Coots
With no waterfowl on Bassett Creek Park's pond I headed over to Medicine Lake in Plymouth, Minnesota to see if I could once again find the migrating Trumpeter Swans.

I wasn't able to locate the swans, but did come upon a couple of dozen American Coots.  They were swimming together about 20 yards out. They were diving for weeds and snacking.

Lake Passing Gas
On the way back to the car I passed over a bridge that had a great view of some ice that was transitioning with the warmer temperatures.

Much to my surprise I discovered that the lake was passing gas through small holes in the ice.
