I visited my field location for the fifth time on November 9. It was about 46 degrees and very overcast. The length of the day was 9 hours, 54 minutes, and 54 seconds. There were a few different kinds of birds chirping (see video at the end of this post). The stream was very flooded and the water was over the usual bank. Also, the ground around the whole area was much more saturated with water. I didn’t see any animals/bugs. Everything felt very cold and empty. My dissolved oxygen resulted in a 35% saturation of the water.
