For the first time in over a week the marine stratus layer never broke up. There was even a chance of showers today. Though I didn’t notice any rain, Rowan told me that it one point it had started to rain a bit. There was a bit of a breeze, but at the house it didn’t seem steady and was pretty much down this evening.
I took advantage of the cloudy day to work on catching up with photos and unfinished blog posts from the past couple of weeks. I didn’t get through everything, but have added a couple of posts so far.
I took a short walk to the store this evening, and as I was approaching Market Center heard a starling imitating the song of a Golden-crowned Sparrow. I was also interested to see the Tree Swallow on the powerline where it was perched yesterday until 10pm. I didn’t keep watch on it this evening, so I’m not sure if/when it left. I did lean over to see if I could see a bird in the nest box this evening. I couldn’t really see well, but did see movement, so I think the female(?) is probably starting to incubate her eggs.
