The best birding time for Mallard marsh is either very early or after 2:30 PM.  The Piping Plover has been present at dawn yesterday and today.  Shorebird banding is in the morning and disturbs some of the birds causing many to feed far from the road.  Snow geese are still present as well as many ducks.  American Bitterns, Yellow-headed Blackbirds, Common Yellowthroats and Warbling Vireos are on territory.
