Friday, April 21, 2012

Gray sky, chilly breeze from southeast after rain. Few people on the paths; no one at Bread and Pickle. A few mallards near the south shore; a half dozen horned grebes farther out; a dozen buffleheads. Fluffed-up goose on nest on small island at southwest inlet; other goose in water nearby; two mourning doves at the water's edge. More horned grebes off the north shore. Dozens of northern shovelers mixed with dozens of pied-bill and horned grebes off the eastern shore, more than a hundred coots farther to the south, all in the lee of the wind. Creek running, though still low; one mallard on it.
