On The Search For Stragglers

I'm on the hunt for Brood X stragglers.

I have not found any yet, I don't think it's quite warm enough. I did not see my first magicicada until May 20 last year, and it was another week before they were in the billions.

I have found earthworms. Many earthworms. They are so weird, and I'm starting to like them. I love seeing them stretched out over the ground at night, the light reflecting off of them.

The little brown beetles that are so prevalent this tim...

304-Perspectives in machine learning for wildlife conservation

    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-022-27980-y here is a mismatch between the ever-growing volume of raw measures (videos, images, audio recordings) acquired for ecological studies and our ability to process and analyze this multi-source data to derive conclusive ecological insights rapidly and at scale. Effectively, ecology has entered the age of big data and is increasingly reliant on sensors, advanced...

Painted turtle

Not sure which species of painted turtle this is and only now do I realize how bad this picture is, I am going back to the area this week with a better camera, hopefully ill be able to find them again when I do!

Crayfish corpse

This one was a little morbid its the front half of some kind of crayfish, considering it was pretty high on the bank its probably a corpse and not a shed exoskeleton found this on the opposite side of the shore as the Leopard frog right near the artificial island.

Double-crested Cormorant

like I said in my original post I will try and get a better picture of this cormorant, they've moved into the area recently and I see them just about every day in the pond and also up near the rapids along the left side of the Carleton campus. I often see them drying their wings on a rock or stump, this picture was taken on may 10th when it was real hot outside but ive also seen them during heavy rain and less extreme weather.

Northern leopard Frog

Caught this little guy on a hot summer day in brewer park in the pond area furthest away from the river, in the center of the pond was a double crested cormorant. This was only a couple weeks after the development project that created the artificial island out of the previously swampy river path.

Leaf Photos are Key!

Don't forget to add in a photo of leaf detail along with your tree photos - this will help others confirm your ID and bump your observation up to research grade. Every confirmed siting is one step closer in keeping spotted lanternfly at bay in Oregon!

Noticia ranística (y un par de reflexiones):

Este es el resultado de mi último paper, recién salido del horno.

¡Se acaba la incertidumbre! ¡Sí hay ranas de pecho espinoso en Chiloé!
Desde que comencé a estudiar las especies de ranas chilenas y su distribución en el territorio, me pregunté por qué no habían ranas del género Alsodes en Chiloé. En la Isla están presentes Batrachyla antartandica, B. taeniata, B. leptopus, Eupsophus calcaratus, Eupsophus emiliopugini, Hylorina sylvatica, Pleurodema thaul, Rhinoderma darwinii...

City Nature Challenge 2022 North East England Summary of Results

Well, we've had time to digest the data and statistics from the #CityNatureChallenge this year and we are over the moon with the effort you all put in to the event!

Overall, we came 101 out of 445 cities which took part. This position is based on the total number of observations made. For number of observers taking part, we came 109th but we did even better when we look at some different aspects of the data, for example, we came 84th for the number of species recorded.

Llegamos a las 50 mil observaciones en NaturalistaUY

Como quien no quiere la cosa, hoy llegamos a las 50.000 observaciones en NaturalistaUY. Este es un tremendo hito para nuestra comunidad en Uruguay. En abril del 2020 celebrábamos las primeras 10.000 observaciones, es decir que en 2 años ¡hemos quintuplicado la cantidad de registros en la plataforma!

Estas 50 mil observaciones representan más de 4,700 especies reportadas por más de 1,700 personas. El grupo más re...

Welcome!

This project is for my environmental class, and what I have chosen to do for my final project of the year is to set up a scavenger hunt for the lower school kids and families. The INaturalist app, you can take out your phone and use the camera function and it will be able to identify any and all organisms. As you can see on the map there are 10 locations all around the LS campus, and your adventure is to find each organisms and post it to this project. Once you find all 10 you win! Good ...

Tak for alle de nye arter til 8.C fra 3 Falke skolen

I dag registrerede 8.c fra 3 Falke Skolen arter hos os. Vi fik uvurderlig hjælp af deres lærer Holger, som er uddannet forstkandidat. Tak for de gode råd om hvordan vi kan blive endnu bedre, vi begynder at kigge på mulighederne for at integrere sten og grus i det kommende år. Særlig tak til Hektor for det omhyggelige arbejde med de planter der ikke var registreret endnu.

Rückblick und Ausblick

Das war meines Erachtens wieder ein tolles Treffen gestern bei super Wetter - besonders mit dem großen Finale bei Sonnenuntergang 😉

Ich fand den Standort sehr spannend und die Zeit verging wieder viel zu schnell.

清晰的照片将有助于鉴定

主体过小、过于模糊等将增加鉴定难度,推荐您上传更清晰、易于鉴定识别的角度(包括背面观、正面观等)。
