Spent a pleasant day at Grand Pass CA today (north of Marshall, MO). Roads
in good shape, mostly dry, a few muddy spots; estimate about 1/4 of the
area still closed unless you have a hunting tag but still lots to see. Only
saw two other visitors/vehicles the entire time.

Highlights included thousands and thousands of mallards present; 40+ bald
eagles; 20+ sandhill cranes (feeding together on the levee opposite the
observation tower); a smattering of sparrows; one small flock of snow geese
and surprisingly few canada geese. In total had about 30 species.

Only downside - bathrooms are locked and a huge ice slick in front of the
port-a-potties rendering them unusable.
