Cormorant in Duckweed at Duck Lake

A habitat for Canada geese, cormorants, black-crowned night-herons and snowy egrets, more so than ducks these days, the growth of duckweed gives new meaning to the name, “Duck Lake.” As of late summer this year, duckweed has taken over the entire surface of the lake in City Park.

Is this a problem? What’s your view?

    The Duck Lake is an embarrassment, an eyesore, and perhaps a health issue. Coupled with that the geese droppings in the lake and in the park do nothing to enhance human usability of City Park. Too many geese with no natural predators needs to also be addressed. It is a City Park, not a primarily a bird sanctuary.
