Barred owl still perched high above dry creek bed--though gone, or moved, an hour later. Blue sky, a few high clouds to the north; breeze from the south. Mallards and children at the SE swimming beach. Painter at work at his easel. Three coots north of the SW bay. Swallows active around the band shell and over the water. Songbirds along the northern shore. Mallards and three large turtles share the willow branch on the water, the mallards more restless.
