|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.
Castro Valley, CA, 4/25/2013
I saw what is probably my first housefinch fledge of the year today. I qualify that because ther have been two prior sightings where I thought I saw a fledgeling, but couldn't be sure. This one is definite, practically no tail and little feather tufts on the top of the head. So that's it for me today:
4/25 - first HOFI Fledge of 2013
As per usual, as they say, please contribute any nature sightings you have made, of any kind, as well as information as to where. Thank you.
I will again only be checking in off and on, and, worse yet, mostly by tablet, but I will still manage to rec and reply at some point, so please pitch in.
