Daily Observations

Villous Cinquefoil Flowers

Weather: It was partly cloudy throughout the day with little wind.

There was a Dark-eyed Junco calling today around the house, I later saw him foraging. It is the first one I have seen around the neighborhood since the flock that wintered here moved on.

I heard the first Swainson’s Thrush I’ve heard singing this year in the evening along Lincoln Street.

Flora: I saw a number of different flowers that have probably been blooming for at least a couple of days, if not longer.

The purple violets are blooming in the neighbors yard. They are either early violets or Alaska violets, but I am not sure which.

Huckleberry bushes are now flowering as are the villous cinquefoil along Sage Beach.
