2 of us with cabin fever paddled Harrison Lake through some April showers this 
afternoon. Even through the grey fog and rain, signs of spring were all about. 
An Osprey put on a good show for us as did an Immature Bald Eagle. Heard a 
couple Prothontary's along the shoreline. The beavers have been sprucing up 
their lodges with some fresh timber and lily pads are starting to dot the lake.

A few highlights:

Osprey
Bald Eagle (immature)
Tree Swallow (many)
Great Blue Heron
Mallard
Hairy Woodpecker
Pine Warbler
Prothonotary Warbler
Yellow-throated Warbler
Blue-grey Gnatcatcher
Eastern Bluebird

Must say the cup of tea and the woodstove felt mighty good after peeling off 
the paddle jacket and boots.
