Welcome to Today at the AHATS Wildlife Observation Area (formerly TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area.) I've been visiting this small park regularly since 2008. This is a log of all the wildlife and nature I experience nearly every day.
I rarely see mergansers at the TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area but I saw some tonight. The ice is about 25% out on Lake Marsden. I'm especially excited for the next few days as the ice recedes more. It's the best time of year to see the river otters.
I also see many "firsts" when I'm out at the WVA. Tonight was no different. I saw the biggest airplane I've ever seen fly by. An Antonov:
