Sunny, some high clouds; mild; breeze from southeast. A couple of mallards near the southeast shore; more near the southwest. Four loud geese there, two of them swimming around with their necks stretched out, lowered to the water. Three men in a boat setting out the floating boat anchors along the western shore. Calling blackbirds and a robin in the northeast drainage marsh. Several dozen coots riding close to the shore there. Various plants greening up the path along the creek, pushing aside the brown leaves; scattered naturalized scillas the first to blossom.
