Come and see the mallards

Come see the mallard ducks at the Pelican River's outlet from Lake Sallie, near the Hotel Shoreham pizza place. Here, at about 5 p.m. every afternoon, resident landowner Tom Lynch tosses out 100 pounds of shelled corn. And the big, beautiful drakes and susies arrive, greedily consuming the grain. You can come out and see this! How about this evening at the time stated? You'll see hundreds of wild birds that you didn't realize are in the area.
