Good Mon. Pleasant day here, somewhat pale after a lovely weekend. Temp in the high 40s.

We toured some local ponds Saturday and Sunday and saw quite a few birds that were new for the season, including a long-tailed duck, two
kinds of grebe, and some canvasbacks—the latter are among the first to leave after completing their business here and generally are gone by June 1. Also saw
both kinds of swan and heard a snipe. There were quite a few shorebirds, and also some who were not so shore.
