|The Daily Bucket is a regular feature of the Backyard Science group. It is a place to note of any observations you have made of the world around you. Insects, weather, meteorites, climate, birds and/or flowers. All are worthy additions to the bucket. Please let us know what is going on around you in a comment. Include, as close as is comfortable for you, where you are located. Each note is a record that we can refer to in the future as we try to understand the patterns that are quietly unwinding around us.

fly below the orange nest for more please
We seemed to need a bucket today, so I decided to throw up an empty one when I noticed fresh House Finch fledges. I don't really have records for anything like "last fledge", but these seem a bit late in the year for here to me, though I cannot document that. I will have some documentation next season, though
