It looks like I'm subbing again.
The Daily Bucket is a place to catch your casual observations of the natural world and turn them into a valuable resource. Whether it's the first flowers of spring or that odd bug in your basement, don't be afraid to toss your thoughts into the bucket. Check here for a more complete description.
Mark will wish to map any information, so location information is important. Heck, it is important anyway, because an observation of a Keel Billed Toucan is or is not unusual depending upon where you are.
Share your own observations in comments, and I'll add a marker to the map. Please give a city and state (as close as you feel comfortable in providing). Green pins for observations mostly about plants, brown for animals, and blue for weather or other inorganic items. The letter at the center of each pin will be the first letter of the user who provides the data.
A bit more (a tiny bit) below the fold:
Here in Castro Valley, it is all of 55 degrees, but it isn't raining, though they say it will re-start soon and continue all week. The house and goldfinches are partying, as are the Towhees, but that is about it for the wildlife that I've noted today.
