Another late year for the Golden-crowns? September 16, the earliest date
for their arrival in the North Berkeley Hills in the 40 years I've kept
track, has come and gone. My records are very close to the capture dates
recorded by PRBO beginning in 1977 at Palomarin.
In the meantime the banded argiopes are fattening on their webs, and
evenings are rich with tree cricket songs.
