Hartstown Marsh (known for it's assortment of Herons & lots of Muskrats - but at this time there was literally hundreds and hundreds of dead fish along the bank. (The Ice at the beginning of March was so thick the sun could not reach the vegetation under it and there was no oxygen for the fish and the lack of oxygen killed the fish). Geneva Marsh same birds as last night plus a Belted Kingfisher. Pymatuning Lake, in the afternoon the wind had started to pick up and the water at Pymatuning was very choppy.
