"Then I thought of something, all of a sudden: 'Those ducks in that lagoon, that little lake... 
Do you happen to know where they go, the ducks, when it gets all frozen over? '"
- Holden Caulfield, The Catcher in the Rye

Mallards on Okauchee Lake

Maybe it's because I'm teaching The Catcher in the Rye or maybe it's because I always fed the ducks in Sturgeon Bay's Little Lake when I was a little girl, but I wondered too... I don't know where the ducks go when the lake freezes over, but on this first day of spring, I'm so glad that they're back!
