Description: We went to 4 different places yesterday. The weather was a balmy 30 degrees and lots of sunny blue skies. 50 people showed up. We even had some people from Blackbrook Audubon join us for part of the trip. A Peregrine Falcon put on a show at the Lorain Impoundment area. We drove over to the Black River after birding the Impoundment. Lots of ducks congregated in a small area of open water on the mostly frozen River. From the Black River we drove to Sheffield Lake Boat Ramp. Patty McKelvey of Black River Audubon posted beautiful pictures on her Facebook page of the ice formations and the Peregrine.
