Justin Haag takes a look through a spotting scope while Amanda Filipi consults a bird book during Friday’s bird-watching event at Lake Minatare.

Both work for Nebraska Game and Parks. Although birds were plentiful, visitors were few during the lake’s only exception to its winter-long closure, which ends Jan. 15.

“We had a few people early, but they couldn’t handle the wind — typical Nebraska weather,” Filipi said.
