Number of identified species:  55

Mostly cloudy then becoming mostly sunny, breeze from northwest becoming stronger towards the end, upper 40s to mid 50s. I parked in the south lot, walked to the hillside grove, walked the sanctuary/lagoons, with a side trip north through the upper field and back, and then followed my usual meandering route counterclockwise around the west half of the park. There were lost more puddles than usual. The sanctuary lagoons had 42 bird species and the rest of the park 41 species.
