A shout out goes to all the Gray Treefrogs(Hyla versicolor) out there. Great job at hiding mysteriously while calling new observers to iNat!:

BRRRRRRRRRRRRT!

There are millions of species who also inhabit this precious nearly spherical squishy rock. Maybe they aren't as outspoken as our own species. Maybe that is reason to listen and watch more carefully.

Oh, Oh, who are the species in your neighborhood?

In Your Neighborhood?

In Your Neighborhood?

Say, who are the species in your neighborhood?

The species who you meet EACH DAY!!!



The home team I root for doesn't import players from around the country and for them it's not a game, it's life or death. In my opinion, one of the greatest perks for choosing the Erie County Natives is that I actually get to see some of my favorite team members in person regularly, even daily. Not to brag, but some even know me personally.

GO NATIVES!!!


I have known Tilly Dee for six years. She is very precious to me. Knowing her has brought me great joy. I hope that, like with pets, the emotional attachment from a human makes her life valued as worthy of protecting by other humans, but I do not believe that is what gives her life significance.

She is a being with emotions, who feels stress and excitement, who knows fear, who feels pain, cold and hunger, and maybe some happiness and satifaction. She has raised young. She has taught them and her community. She is an excellent, experienced sentinel who protects her family and community and warns them of danger. I often have a hard time distinguishing her by sight, but she has her own way that lets me know its her.

Her species has been on this land for hundreds of thousands of years. In the past few hundred years, their landscape has been utterly transformed by a culture of one species that generally looks at any life that a member of its own species isn't emotionally attached to as something, without question, to subdue, exploit, encourage, transform or eradicate to fit whatever fleeting fashions of the time or impulsive whims that an individual may have. Humans suffering from critically low nature deficits often seek supplementation and a connection with nature through bird feeding habits that unwittingly endanger her by exploding populations of invasive birds, specifically "English" house sparrows that would kill her, her young, and other native species.

For the bird feed and feeder industry, there are no legal requirements to encourage environmental responsibility and education would harm profits. Like with many things in normalized dysfunction, the math is easy if you dare look at it.


Mang Park, Kenmore, NY, US has biodiversity!


When being supported by living earth, bare feet allow for a more nuanced perception of how much it gives.

A recent survey found that one out of one toads preferred humans to not wear footwear.

Without supplementation, Vitamin B12 can be virtually absent from the vegan diet and is typically the main deficiency responsible for the vegan malnutrition horror stories passed around from the news. If your foods aren't fortified enough with it, a bottle of 365 1mg B12 tablets can be purchased for about $12 or less. If you divide them up into US RDA doses, that's a 415-year supply at less than $0.03/year. Another deficiency is D. D2 needs to be converted by the body to D3, which is often considered better nutrition. It is usually derived from animals, but it can be obtained from lichens at a higher price or often as a free by-product of supplementing a more common modern deficiency, time outdoors with nature.
