iNat Intro: Using iNat to Scout for Hiking Sites

This is meant to be a resource to introduce my students to the site and to supplement an "Intro to iNat" program I'm giving. If you're already an active iNat user, you probably don't need this (but if you're planning to do a program of your own or are trying to brainwash friends and neighbors, feel free to link people here).

Let's use the iNaturalist website ( https://www.inaturalist.org/home ) to scout...

Marine Aquatic Invasive Species

When considering invasive species, attention is often focused on freshwater and terrestrial environments. This is not to say that marine species are completely ignored; however, they receive less focus in research and policy. While control of marine invasives through biofouling (the buildup of organisms on the hulls and niche areas of ships) and ballast water exchange of commercial vessels is outside the purview of Nova Scotian recreationalists, it is important to note that your everyday...

Nuevos avances en delimitación

Procedí a subir un mapa más preciso del Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo procedente del Atlas CR 2014. Para diferenciarlo del anterior (con límites menos precisos), al nuevo mapa (place) lo nombré: "Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo (Atlas CR 2014)". Luego hice un flag en el mapa anterior para conocer que opinaba algún curador o administrador de la discrepancia entre mapas, o de que ahora coexisten dos versiones de esta área protegida. No he obtenido respuesta. El mapa que yo subí parece...

A Vacation of Home

After going for so long with so little actual birding done, I was eager to make the most of my brief (June 17-July 2) stay in Chicago. A Black-tailed Gull, of all things, showed up in the first few days of June, but didn’t stay for long. A Snowy Plover was found a few days later within a mile of where the gull was found, but it too fled for different shores. So with nothing much to chase, I arrived in one of the dullest times of the year; when the breeders have slowed their singing and t...

Mixed group foraging

Very hot and smoke-filled day. Almost August and warblers will start their migration again. Today I came upon this group foraging together in the early morning. These different birds can co-operate in finding food and alerting others in the flock of danger. I was wondering if there is scientific term for this kind of mixed group foraging? And are they preparing for the migration?

Now I can recognize a few types of birds and understand certain types of behaviour. Guess I'm getting...

On Saturday 7/27, we'll be hosting our first ever Moth Night at Mt. Tabor Park as part of National Moth Week! held annually worldwide during the last full week of July and celebrates the beauty, life cycles, and habitats of moths around the world as well as spreads awareness of these important insects whose global populations are rapidly declining.

To attract and observe a diversity of the park's moths, we'll be using a technique called lightsheeting, where we will set up several...

Conocé la propuesta de FARN de Corredor Biocultural Cuenca Matanza-Riachuelo

👉La diversidad natural y cultural de la cuenca Matanza-Riachuelo es un asunto muchas veces subvalorado o postergado. Sin embargo, existen a lo largo de su territorio espacios naturales, históricos y culturales que son estratégicos para el reconocimiento y cuidado de un corredor biocultural urbano que conjugue ecosistemas, especies, cultura e historia con un uso y una gestión responsable del territorio. Esto contribuye a realizar el mandato judicial de restauración de la cuenca que data d...

Monterey Audubon - Fall shorebird migration / Pectoral Sandpiper

Fall shorebird migration is already underway! While Monterey County hosts a variety of shorebirds year-round, many species are passage migrants that appear during more compressed windows while in transit between their breeding grounds and wintering grounds. Adults tend to appear earlier than the juveniles born this year.

Pectoral Sandpiper is one of our uncommon but regular fall migrants. It is quite recognizable thanks to its medium size (standing out as larger than nearby "peep...

Identifying California's Whiptail Lizards

Before we begin, I feel obligated to declare that I am not an expert herpetologist (not yet at least). However, I am very passionate about our whiptails here in California, and I have done a fair share of observing, identifying, and reading on them, to the point where I at least feel confident enough to write this guide. I feel confident that it will contribute a little more than just the information on the amazing California Herps website from ...

MBP - AOS Supplement | Scopoli's Shearwater

Check out this very nice summary of recent American Ornithological Society (AOS) changes to bird taxonomy: https://www.aba.org/aos-supplement-2024/.

MBP aligns closely with the MD/DC Records Committee (MD/DCRC), which follows AOS. So far we've removed the second hyphens from Yellow-crowned Night-Heron and Black-crowned Night-Heron. They are now Yellow-crowned and Black Crowned Night Herons.

MBP - Luna Moth

Today we continue our celebration of National Moth Week with one of the most breathtaking moth species in the world, the Luna Moth (Actias luna).

When I was a nature-obsessed kid, the Luna Moth may have been the species I stared at in my Golden Guide more than any other. I'll never forget my long-awaited first, which wasn't until I moved to Maryland as an adult. Thankfully, they are widespread in Maryland and found in all 23 counties and Baltimore City. They prefer deciduous har...

July in the Garden 2024

A summertime visit to the Botanical Garden is a singular pleasure. When the temperatures finally rise to something resembling summer heat (hopefully this will happen in July), the forested paths of the woodland areas of the Garden beckon visitors to enjoy a cool respite from the sun. It’s easy to while away the hours sitting on a bench by a pond watching the antics of birds and dragonflie...

This year has been so much fun and so successful. We have officially identified more species this year than any other year, and are on track to have the most observations of all time too.

If you need some inspiration for where to explore and get out in nature, some under-explored areas of the island are:

  • Tom Nevers
  • Milestone Rd
  • Sconset leading ...

Guide to millipede orders

This summer I've been working on organizing information on millipedes that I've been collecting for quite a few years now. I've also been thinking about ways to make this information available to others. Below is a link to a guide for 16 orders of millipedes. The information has been added to the American Isopod and Myriapod group web page. The guide gives some basic background information, overview of some of the biology and ID information for each order as well as giving photos and dra...

North-east corner of Battersea Park - near Chelsea Bridge

There is an area of trees, long grass and rough vegetation in the north-east corner of Battersea Park (beside the River Thames in Central London) where the vegetation has been allowed to grow longer. I have been able to see a number of unusual or under-recorded species in this area, in particular on the Daucus carota. The area is approximately 50 metres x 50 metres.

Since 1 January 2024 I have posted 129 observations of 79 species in this area, mostly of invertebrates. 65 are ins...
