Good morning Peter,
The Upper pools have some good birding this morning. I counted 11 Wood Ducks in the outlet stream just below the dog beach area, as well as several Mallards. A large mixed flock of Robins and Cedar Waxwings could be seen on the shore close to the waterfall. Finally, a Merlin was busy eating what looked like a Junco, perched on a lookout tree between the two pools.
