The Marsh Discovery Trail is open again, most of the way. We'll see how it is affected by the expected heavy rains, but an open trail sure is a sign of spring. (Repairs are planned for the remaining storm-damaged section.)
Plenty of Ducks at DeKorte. A quick lunchtime check yesterday found Bufflehead, Gadwall, Green-winged Teal (in Teal Pool), Northern Shoveler, Northern Pintail, Ruddy, Hooded Merganser, Canvasback, Common Merganser, Black Duck and Mallard. That's 11 species.
