The Green Heron chicks have hatched. The adult is much higher on the nest, and there are feathered creatures moving under her; too early to say how many.
There was a Common Gallinule swimming and calling loudly at the south end of the main pond.
Otherwise, a flock of (late?) Cedar Waxwings, five Black Phoebes at the observation platform (a family group?), two Pied-billed Grebes, one calling, and one each of Coot, Double-crested Cormorant, and Western Bluebird.
