April 11,2019

I arrived at South I Street at 3:40. It was cloudy out with an overcast and pretty windy and around 54 degrees. Our tree had new growth. There were some buds forming and there were a few spots that had tiny leaves. I headed over to Klopp Lake around 4:00. The tide was very low but I did not see any avocets. I saw some ducks and birds though.

I arrived at South I street at 5:00pm. The sky was somewhat cloudy but the sun was still out. The willow tree did not have any changes to it again. The ground around the tree was muddy and wet. I arrived at Klopp Lake at 5:30pm. The tide was very low. I saw Avocets feeding in the sand. Some had the cinnamon color while others did not. There were about 30-35 of them. I also saw some other birds and ducks in the water.

I walked along the trail and saw some mushrooms. It was low tide, but still no avocets were seen. Many other ducks and birds were in the lake though. I then headed back to the car and left.
