“You will come to learn a great deal if you study the insignificant in depth.”  –Odysseas Elytis

Many deciduous trees turning yellow.  In bloom now are invasive weeds: wild chicory, Queen Ann’s lace, sweet peas, dandelions. At one point at Joe Dancer a busy flock of Bushtits moved through the short trees and brush along the trail.

The light drizzle begins about 11:20 AM.  It lasts about half an hour.  This may signal the end of the long summer drought.

Large flock (>20) of American Goldfinches at feeders.  The garden spider webs are scattered across garden shrubs and lower branches of trees.
