Though it’s starting to feel like summer in the Great Lakes region, with temperatures soaring into the 80s (Fahrenheit), icebergs are still loitering in Lake Superior — a reminder of an especially harsh winter.

Last week, a marine warden with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources was patrolling Lake Superior when she spotted seagulls resting on a huge chunk of ice near Madeline Island, off the northern coast of Wisconsin.

“Normally the ice is mostly gone by end of April with some bays having some ice chunks floating around,” said warden Amie Egstad. “We were doing commercial net checks and had been seeing the ice floating around the area. This one was the biggest we had seen so far.”
