Skies were cloudy and there was a bit of a rain throughout much of the day. It was enough to bring precipitation for October up to within an inch or so of the 20 (or 30?) year average for the month (~13 inches).
I spent much of the day inside on calls or working on catching up on various projects, but did go for a short walk late this afternoon as the sun was setting.
I stopped by Swan Lake, but did not see any Ring-necked Ducks or American Coot. Most years both show up at the lake in the fall, but don’t tend to stick around all winter (unless the lake stays open).
