First time in all my years doing this that I saw cormorants on this stretch of the Mississippi nesting and fishing.

Wind has died down and sun is out. A lot of cormorants. No osprey. Heard loons. The delta area seems to be getting bigger. Marsh is thick.

Weather cloudy with sunny periods. Windy. Two osprey nests visible but no sighting of osprey. Saw heron and a kayaker as well as turtle. The delta weeds are just breaking through the surface of the water. Not too thick yet. Water was surprisingly warm for so early in the year.
