Saw at least two mallards and a large number of other ducks that were too far away to be identified.  I would have liked to get a better look because people are reporting Common Goldeneyes.  Could have been that, and I thought there may have been Scaups in the mix.

Female Cardinal. We saw 6 males and 4 females.

Black-capped Chickadee. Near the entrance to the Magic Hedge someone had spread a bunch of seeds. Most of the sparrows, chickadees, and cardinals were here.
