According to them, golden crowned kinglets take from four to six days to build their nests. If my pair had started on May 30, when I first saw them, June 2 was their fourth day. On most days I managed to watch them for an hour in late morning, but golden crowned kinglets build their nests throughout the day so I missed much of the activity..
I have been working on this pattern since 1999 in college when I noticed a snowstorm in Lawrence, KS had an odd look to it. We had another snowstorm about two months later that had that same odd look to it. A couple months later we had a severe weather outbreak that again had that same odd look.
We in the Artist Studio, down here at the Des Moines Social Club with Marji Guyler Alaniz. Thank you so much for letting us come. You have an exhibit that is opening. I went on to the woods beyond the Far Field where a brown headed cowbird sang and a ruffed grouse crept off into the underbrush. I imagine he was the drummer I stalked back in early April.

The red maples have been looking poorly recently, but awild black cherry sapling has grown into a respectable tree nearby and black walnuts have also sprouted from squirrel buried nuts and grown up to take the place of the maples. Black walnuts are known to produce the chemical compound juglone in their leaves, nut hulls, buds, stems, fruits and roots that inhibit the growth of some plants, but red maples are not on the lists I consulted. And happily, tulip trees, which Dave planted beneath the black walnuts, are also not affected by juglone..
Partial Mantel test showed a significant correlation (R2 =0.16) between environment and bacterial community structure while controlling for spatial distance. Canonical correspondence analysis demonstrated distinct clusters corresponding with specific environmental drivers’ characteristic of specific tributary types. The gut microbiome of fish at these sites showed a significant correlation with environmental bacteria but not with other environmental parameters or spatial distance.
