Tranquille Marsh and Tranquille on the Lake birding March 21, 2019

Temperature right at zero for an early start this morning.  This eventually warmed up to 15 or so mid afternoon.  There was a real feel of Spring in the air and the birds are starting to move here with this low elevation marsh half melted.  Lots of ducks on Kamloops Lake waiting for other lakes to be open.
