Actually they are early in the morning, but well past sunrise.

Wow. I always enjoy the nature photos. Awesome.

I saw a honeybee the other day, which seems awfully early but I'll take it. I hope they find enough to eat, there's not much blooming. Maybe I should put out a feeder? I've never put a feeder out for bees.

I happy to report that this time the coyote was not hunting the bunny. We have seen the coyotes hunting rabbits there.

We saw 3 bald eagles today, which is quite something for this area. Two were a nesting pair and the other we saw glide over us as we were biking. They really must be making a come-back.

Awesome! We have a nesting pair in Santa Cruz but I have never seen them.

Yesterday when we were out biking we happened to see a natural artesian well bubbling up out of the ground.
