'IDing party' for Northeastern Drone Flies

Hello everyone! There are currently 5,211 Eristalini that need ID in the northeast. Let's work together to chip away at these!

Let the fun begin! Let us know in a comment if you're joining and you'll get updates... even a couple IDs here and there count! And of course, feel free to start a discussion if you find a particularly challenging or interesting one.

You can join in at https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?taxon_id=364082&place_id=7590%2C6883%2C13336%2C7289%2C7587%2C6853%2C9116%2C13%2C44%2C3%2C38%2C24%2C32%2C35%2C26%2C29%2C20%2C31%2C7%2C33%2C39%2C4%2C42%2C51%2C48%2C52339%2C5

@upupa-epops , @trinaroberts and I have been tossing around ideas for communal ID initiatives either on Discord, group video sessions, or as it turns out thru journal posts in this project. If you have thoughts on any of these options please leave a comment or message me.

I ran through a bunch in Brooklyn. If I get time I'll try the other boroughs.

Hello, I'd like to join in! I may need to ask for some assistance, this is a new group of insects for me but I'm glad to learn.
