Evening all,
I've been cleaning the gutters this afternoon, not too bad as are cleaned each year and we are not under trees so just light debris but found a few earthworms in there. How does one suppose they got into the gutters which are about ten feet above the path? Thanks in anticipation.



Climbed up the downspouts in moist, but not drenching, weather? In my neighborhood, it would be kids throwing dirt clods onto the roof! :/

Eggs in the soil on bird's feet or surviving the journey through the bird's guts.

The latter I couldn't believe, at first glance, but nature keeps surprising me!

Most informative, thank you both.
