The wayside just south of Goose Island County Park, along Hwy 35 is offering excellent viewing of Tundra Swans and ducks once again. The Brownsville wayside on the Minnesota shore should be equally as busy. There are often DNR folks and other volunteers on hand over the weekend with spotting scopes. Bring your binoculars!!

American Bald Eagles are also abundant, but the water is open as yet so they are fairly well distributed.
