|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.
OK, yesterday was my first Ruby Crowned Kinglet for this year (didn't see him at the beginning of the year, for some reason)
11/28/13 First Ruby Crowned Kinglet
Today, I've had up to 25 goldfinches at a time, running maybe 20 AMGO to 5 LEGO. Sightings while doing dishes and clean up are, as best as I recalled and noted during breaks: TOWA, AMGO, LEGO, BEWR, HOFI, WCSP, CALT, RBNU, ANHU, PUFI, -- Townsend's Warbler, American & Lesser Goldfinches, Bewick's Wren, House Finches, White Crowned Sparrow, Anna's Hummingbird and one Purple Finch (so far).
"Green Diary Rescue" will be posted every Saturday at 1:00 pm Pacific Time on the Daily Kos front page. Be sure to recommend and comment in the diary.
Now It's Your Turn What have you noted happening in your area or travels? As usual post your observations as well as their general location in the comments.
