The Daily Bucket is a place where we can post and exchange our observations about the natural happenings in our neighborhoods. Birds, bugs, blossoms and more - each notation is a record that we can refer to in the future as we try to understand the natural patterns that are unwinding around us.Seattle. January 5, 2013.
Cold in Seattle early this week, with the neighboring rooftops frost-bright in moonlight and icy morning roads. There's still a thin film of ice in the shallows of the Wetland pond, and a crust of barely frozen mud along its edges.
On Tuesday, the first Red-winged Blackbird of the season called out against a cold blue sky.
Seattle. January 2, 2013. The first Red-winged Blackbird has arrived at the Wetland.
Your turn. What's happening in your natural neighborhood? Everyone's welcome to participate - just jump in with your observations and questions. Welcome and here's to a fine year!
I'll be in and out all day.
