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, 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.

Tallahassee, Florida, February 3, 2013.

In the spirit of yesterday's comments this is a pretty minimal bucket.  It is sunny and in the low 60s in north Florida.

The storm several days ago appears to have caused the wintering flock of white pelicans to move on - I haven't seen them since early last week.  Large numbers (many dozen, perhaps over 100 at times) of white ibis and smaller numbers of egrets remain feeding in the shallow water of Lake Jackson opposite our house.

Our bird feeders seem more popular this year than in the past which is strange given the mild winter.  Goldfinches, which  appeared irregularly last year have settled in and are now the most frequent visitors.

That't it for me.

What's going on where you are?
