MONDAY AUGUST 7, 1978
When I first woke up this morning, I saw a lot of FUNNEL WEBS on the front lawn from my bedroom window. At breakfast I saw a lot of ORB WEBS in the tree outside the kitchen window. On my way down to the Nature Center I saw more orb webs and some free-hanging gossamer. Last night was warm, moist, humid, and there was dew on all the webs. Did a lot of spiders hatch or disperse last night? At about 9:00 p.m. I heard a FOX barking. They bark one high-pitched bark at a time, not woof-woof-woof like a dog. Bob says it’s unusual to hear them bark at this time of year. He says they bark most often during the mating season.
