A late report on late Saturday afternoon: Warm, sunny, the paths crowded with hundreds of walkers, bikers, skaters, dogs, the sky busy with planes. Mallards in the drainage pool at the southwest. A few mallards in the melted edge near the bandstand, including one with a vivid green head and large white bib. The northern edge of water now a yard wide. A couple of dozen mallards in the creek, now running full.
