Field notes:

It’s been a relatively mild wintr so far and signs of spring are coming. Indian plum is breaking bud, flowers are starting to open. Alders are flowering and the catkins on hazels are opening. Ducks and geese are flocking; the bufflehead ducks are still around. Beavers are stripping bark off of everything in sight.The big cottonwood is still standing, but leaning precariously toward the meadow; just waiting for a winter storm to blow it over. On sunny days like this, more visitors, many with kids, come out to enjoy the natural area.
