I’ve had the chance to bird Rotary Park a few times in the two weeks we’ve lived here.  Up to 22 species for the area so far.  It is much dryer than what appears to be usual.  The pond surface has shrunk down to a pondlet clogged with duck weed.  Much of the lakebed now overgrown with willow, cottonwood and grass.  Baker Creek is running low but the dense riparian habitat is full of berries and insects still
