Overcast, cool (low 50's), light east winds. I checked the Dunes, beach, Lake Michigan from the fishing pier, the Magic Hedge and peripheral plantings, the butterfly garden, and the harbor mouth. Excellent numbers of birds, particularly mid spring migrants like Northern Flickers, Hermit Thrushes, and several sparrows. A nice movement of waterfowl too.
