No Shoveler this time, but in addition to the usual mob of coots, there were the following feathered critters:
Great Blue Heron
Along the DeAnza Trail at the north end of town, I saw what appeared to be an albino California Ground Squirrel at a distance. Same siz and shape, but all white.
Signs of spring are common now. Plain Titmice and a Brown Towhee have been singing. Nuttall's Woodpeckers have been drumming. Some trees and shrubs are leafing out or blooming. And beautiful daffodils are at their peak.
