A mallard duck flies over an open ferry channel on Lake Champlain on Wednesday, March 5, 2014, in Essex, N.Y. Lake Champlain is frozen solid, except for two stretches of open water where two ferries carry passengers between Vermont and New York. The only open water within miles is attracting thousands of ducks and bald eagles looking to eat the ducks. It is had the side benefit of attracting birders from far away looking to spot rare duck species. (AP Photo/Mike Groll) less
