Saw a killdeer and redwing blackbirds while I was there. Water quite high and moving pretty quickly.
Sandhill cranes flying overhead. Water flow is high, ground very wet and muddy.
So much salt residue still on the roads from the winter weather event the other day. Little snow accumulation here and there.
This is the first time I’ve been able to measure at the site since getting my permit because of ice.
Because we are expecting a wintry mix today, I’ve seen salt trucks in the area since last night
Water very high and silty
Water seems high, very muddy. Had a lot of rain lately.
Saw the first red wing blackbird of the season, also saw 2 mourning doves and 4 Canadian geese.
Water was very silty and barely flowing. Retention pond upstream of collection site still had a little ice on it.
Ice was mostly off the water, some thin ice upstream in the pond.
Snowed 2 to 3 inches two days ago. Creek is icy covered but was able to gather in a natural opening. Sky clear.
Water movement slow.
