There is a lot of open water now, and ducks have joined the geese: Wood Ducks, Hooded Mergansers and Green-winged Teals, along with the usual Mallards and Black Ducks. Raptor activity has picked up as well. No sign of the Tree Sparrows that have been present up to now -- a hint of approaching spring?
