|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.
As many of you know there is a local Great Blue Heron Rookery. It is at Lake Chabot, CA and a couple of years ago the herons relocated from their longstanding rookery location to an island in the lake after Bald Eagles moved into their area. Though birds at several other Bay Area rookeries started nesting early, these did not. In fact, it is about half-way through the normal nesting season, and it does not appear that they are nesting this year at all.
"Spotlight on Green News & Views" will be posted every Saturday and Wednesday 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.
