1,000 Observations

Wow, what fun! 1,000 observations of nature and I’ve loved every single one. I’ve found that through using iNaturalist has brought me so much closer to the natural world… and I have learnt so many more species through interacting with the community!

It is interesting, that a simple observation can be done so differently by different people too. Let me explain...

I love Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo's (Zanda funerus), and will always grab a photo where I can. As I’m taking the photo, I will try get a photo of each individual (say there are 5) and upload each one as a single ‘observation’ - then each one can be assigned it’s own data. I'm an undergraduate biologist, and individual organisms makes statistics much easier so I upload in that style. While others I’ve noticed might take one photo of a group.
If there is anyone reading this, I wonder, do you observe individuals, or groups of species?

Here's to a thousand more observations of our incredible natural world!

About me

Hello everyone,
My name is Lucas, and I live in the Hunter Valley, NSW.
I am a birder of about 2 years, but hoping to observe lots of other animals!

In 2018 I found the iNaturalist app on my phone, but I didn't really take to it.
Now, in 2022 I went onto the iNat website and found the community side of things (not accessable on the app) and thought it was brilliant! Since then, I've been uploading some of my older more interesting observations, and filling out my profile. I am also studying a BSc at the University of Newcastle.

Although birds are my favourite class of animals, I have been enjoying herping recently (particularly frogs). I am still quite new to the frog and reptile world, so any corrections are appreciated!

This profile acts as a little personal record, and a way of interacting with fellow nature lovers! If anybody is interested, I have a little instagram page called the Kingdom of Animals, where I show some of my films to encourage others out into the natural world:

Looking forward to uploading lots more and helping contribue the little I know, thanks for reading!
