Second visit to the park for the year.  I met Rob Bate at the ballfields, trying to find at least 1 Cackling Goose among the 100s feeding there.  No luck. But at least 3 individuals have metal bands on their legs. 
Most of the activity I saw was around the feeders, being a Red-breasted Nuthatch, the best one. 
Midwood, Rick's Place, Vale the activity was almost zero.  Maybe too cold and windy today.
