Be aware that avian flu is spreading throughout the United States. It is carried by migrating birds like Canadian geese among others. The watershed at Optimist Lake provides water, a resting place, and is a transitory path for hundreds of migrating species. If you have pet birds who could be susceptible to the avian flu use biosecurity measures for your yards as recommended. Especially change your shoes before you walk from the park then back into your yard where your pet birds reside as you could be carrying feces from a potentially sick migrant to your pets. Be clean, follow the rules, use common sense, enjoy your pets responsibly. http://extension.msstate.edu/…/biosecurity-measures… and https://www.theguardian.com/…/bird-flu-bald-eagles…
