We've had very cold temperatures from January 7 through January 12.  This meant that the temperature of our lakes has also cooled.  Certain exotic (bad) species of fish, such as tilapia, have been killed by the cold water.  Well, wading birds such as Ibis, Egrets, and a very special visitor, a Wood Stork, are feeding on the fish!  Come to our lowlands and see the birds taking advantage of a "buffet" of tilapia.
