Finally, the weather and temperatures were a little better, and a walk to the park was a good way to see the changes in the park.  First, most the open waters were frozen, with small areas open in the lake, and also at the upper pool.
The best site  with a lot activity was the feeders of Breezy Hill.
My best bird for the walk, a lonely Red-breasted Nuthatch visiting the feeders.
