|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.

Today's original bucket, concerning some very unusual heron nesting behavior was published early by accident. It can be found here if you're interested.
Meanswhile, we needs us a bucket for today, so here we go. You all know the drill, observations, with location information, in the comments.
