Creek running fairly high after recent rain. Some sunlight through high clouds; breeze from the south. Solitary mallard on a rock off the southwest inlet; blackbirds calling from the brush. Scores of coots diffusely spread out over a large swatch of water off the western shore, bobbing in the breeze. Two geese standing on the western embankment. Marsh on northeastern shore full to overflowing, loud with bird calls. Paths there busy; circling motorcycles louder than the landing planes.
