Mostly cloudy, calm winds becoming light southwest, low 30s. I checked the beach, Dunes, peripheral plantings, Magic Hedge, and Butterfly Garden, and scanned Lake Michigan from the fishing pier. Decreasing numbers of sparrows. Waterfowl diversity low. Excellent visibility on Lake Michigan. It's starting to feel like winter.
