Wildlife Sightings We enjoyed a rain-less "listening to the lake" Sunday, June 28,2010. An osprey flew back and forth several times, and a kingfisher, along with barn swallows chasing insects over the water. Geese paddled single file past the pier and mallard families fed around the burgeoning macrophyte growth. We saw Caspian terns and the usual gulls. And this snake (see picture) which I photographed near the shore as we were leaving.
