|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.

On 4/10/14 I was informed that the Humpback Whales were already in Monterey Bay, "about a month early" by a tour boat operator.
On the same day a local park ranger informed me that the migratory Brown Pelicans had been back from Mexico "for a couple of weeks". These, he noted, were the breeding population, while the non-breeders who had no need to bother with that trip constituted the handful of full time residents that hung around the docks and such.
