On Saturday I went to Rock Cut with my dad and we had a nice mix of birds. Pierce Lake was still mostly frozen (with lots of ice-fishing) but the open water by the dam had a ton of Mallards, a few American Coots, at least one American Black Duck, and a pair of Ring-necked Ducks.

Best bird was a male Pileated Woodpecker that flew down the bike path directly overhead.

We also found 3 American Robins and a group of 40+ Cedar Waxwings and 1 Northern Shrike near the prairie before the road that heads towards the campground road.
