Overcast, mid 30's, light southwest winds. I checked the beach, Dunes, peripheral plantings, Magic Hedge, and Butterfly Garden. Decent assemblage of gulls at the east end of the public beach feeding on crayfish in the debris at the shoreline. Not much else of note. Low numbers of expected waterfowl on Lake Michigan, probably because of the unseasonably mild winter so far. Few passerines either. No ice on Lake Michigan or the harbor.
