First Month Down! Two to go!

We are a third of the way through our Fall Fruits, Seeds and Nuts bioblitz! 157 observations from 99 species so far from 63 observers are included; 76 (48%) observations are still unconfirmed. We tend to look at spring flowers, and speaking from personal experience rarely look at the fruit which can be just (almost?) as colorful! Plenty of time to get out and add to your knowledge.

First 30 days! - 865 species

The most species in the first 30 days of our Wolf Ridge projects! In 2019, we recorded 655 species by Sep 30. In 2022, we recorded 657 species by Sep 30. Wow! We are headed towards a higher total number of species for the year. Can we do it? That would be more than 2176 species by the end of August 2024.

Summary Report: October 1, 2022 - September 30, 2023

This is the first summary report of Urban Owls project that I created on July 8, 2023. My owling season, that is roughly based on the lifecycle of Great Horned Owl, usually ends on September 30 of current year and starts on October 1 of previous year. Therefore, I am writing this 2023 summary report for the period from October 1, 2022 to September 30, 2023 mainly based on all iNaturalist observations. However, my personal research from other online resources may also be included. The cov...

Urban Mothing: Test #1 / Back of Balcony / High Position / Dry Season / Four Sessions

Test #1 Results:

This configuration seems to attract individuals at a somewhat slow rate, the slowest being about one individual per hour. The quantity attracted per session is about seven individuals on average. This does not reflect individual species, but rather the raw amount of total moths seen. Now when it comes down to the moths' identities, most of them consist of Tribe Phycitini. Some more rarer moths seen include: pearl moths, owlet moths, geometer moths, and others

Naturplejedag ved laden

Idag har et stort hold af friske frivillige lavet naturpleje vest for laden.
I løbet af nogle somre har tilgroning med brombær, hindbær pil og birk taget til i det ellers åbne areal ved det eksisterende sommerhus, vi kalder laden.

Vi har meget skovbund på vores areal, men ikke så meget, der kan kaldes skovlysning, og den biotop, vil vi gerne fremme.

Der blev gået godt til den med optrækker-grej og spader.
En lidt tyndet bræmme af pil og birk blev efterladt ud mod...

End of September

I am at 604 species identified in the prairie.

Yesterday I identified a Queen (Danaus gilippus) and also saw another Great Purple Hairstreak (Atlides halesus). A first time for the Queen and a second for the Great Purple Hairstreak. Both were found on Bidens.

The plants blooming right now are Bidens (lots of bees and flies) and boneset (Lots of wasp and bees). Goldenrods are starting to bloom also. Still very dry and hot mid 90's.

Sept insect survey night.

Thanks to Tony and Daniel for bringing the moth sheet and light so that we may observe a whole range of species. It was a warm night, a little windy but we managed to get some good shots of the moths that visited. Thankyou to everyone who came down and showed interest. Its time to start logging those observations.

Bioblitz, 27 September

A fantastic first mini-blitz of the project! 25 CAWS members came on a walk with us, and we saw some fantastic wildlife. Highlights included a gorgeous caterpillar of a Spectacle moth, a Hornet Hoverfly (Volucella zonaria) that everyone got to see, and the brilliantly named Blue Long-horned Snailkiller Fly. We also recorded a good diversity of Spider genuses, plenty of flowering plants and some fascinating galls, such as the Six Button Spangle-Gall Wasp. Overall a fantastic day out with ...

28-30 September 2023 trip to Central West NSW

I planned a trip to the Central West to attend this event near Garema: Loam's Soil Carbon Field Day - soil carbon projects for cropping and mixed farms🌱. My parents came along because they wanted to see spring flowers, especially canola.

Here are the observations I took during the trip, and I was surprised to see so many adult Amegilla sp. in Orange.

Why do all ungulates not simply share a single walking gait?

(writing in progress)

Ungulates are defined by their feet, which bear hooves. Given this pedal specialisation, one might expect all ungulates to walk with similar gaits.

But this is not the case.

In this Post, I classify, illustrate, and explain the walking gaits of ungulates, which vary considerably and in ways related to habitats and niches.

We can begin by referring to the most relatable of non-ungulate mammals, similar in body size to fairly small ungu...

Green Brittlegill

The Green Brittlegill, or Green Russula, is a type of fungi found in Southeast Alaska and other northern temperate regions such as Britain and Ireland. (O'Reilly) It is often confused with the Russula virescens, which is also sometimes known as the Green Russula since it is part of the Russulaceae family and is green. This Green Brittlegill is, as I mentioned, part of the Russulaceae family, which is a family of fungi known for encompassing almost 2000 species of fungi (Russula). Usually...

Forest near campus

It was a very nice day and a good way to catch a break from all the school stress. I saw many things that you would expect in a forest. I am particulary proud of the picture of the bird because I was hearing birds all the time but could never see them so i actually had to walk around for 15 min just for a bird picture. I also saw a bird nest.
I also got a picture of a squirl that took be 5 tries because it would run away as soon as it spotted me and unfortunally tehy are a lot quick...
