I spent about an hour and a half mostly circling the south side of the lake. Highlights were a large mixed flock in a feeding binge on a sweetgum tree, including three female Purple Finches, and a little farther on a flock of six Rusty Blackbirds perched in the reeds. Also a banded Red-tail was hunting from very low perches, but I couldn't ever read the band.

South side of the lake, seemed to like to perch low if anyone is around and wants to try to read it. I got part of it, what appeared to be 1918.
