Overcast, light rain early, breezy (10-15 mph) from the southeast, mid-30s. I checked the beach, Dunes, peripheral plantings, Magic Hedge, Butterfly Garden, and I scanned Lake Michigan from the fishing pier. No surprises. Modest flight of waterfowl on Lake Michigan. I found the remains of a young Bonaparte's Gull on the fishing pier the Peregrines caught and ate. Decent numbers of sparrows, mainly in the Butterfly Garden.
