In the Roberts Bird Sanctuary, just north of the lake: mallards, grackles, chickadees, yellow-rumped warblers, robins, calls of red-wing blackbirds and cardinals. Also two pairs of wood ducks on the water on one side of the path, and another half dozen on the other side. Great horned owl on a nest high in a tree (feathers patterned like the bark of the trunk), with at least one large chick.
