With Jeremy Rardin. Heavy overcast, light rain and drizzle at times, windy (15-20 mph) from the southwest, mid to upper 40's. We checked the beach, Dunes, Magic Hedge, peripheral plantings, Butterfly Garden, scanned Lake Michigan from the fishing pier, and checked the southeast corner of the harbor. Lower numbers of sparrows compared to recent days. Except for Red-breasted Mergansers low numbers of waterfowl. Also, a late Eastern Chipmunk.
