Migration Patterns of Pacific Newts

Here's the scoop about the newt migration:

"With the first rains in late November or early December, adults emerge from the saturated ground and migrate from their upland habitat to ponds and streams for breeding. Males migrate before females and remain at the breeding site longer...

The female newt lays her fertilized eggs in water where the larvae hatch and grow. Young newt larvae look like frog tadpoles but with longer, thinner bodies. When metamorphosis is complete, the juveniles emigrate from the breeding site and spend the next few years growing to sexual maturity. When they are fully grown, they typically return to the same breeding site year after year to mate.

When the breeding phase is over, females are the first to return to their upland habitat, followed by males and juveniles. However, some adults might remain in the pools for an additional few months to feed. Since the return migration is more sporadic and less weather-dependent than migration to the vernal pools, it is much harder to protect the newts as they make their way back to the forest."

Wasatch Hollow Nature Preserve and Open Space January 18, 19, 20 – Journal

Wasatch Hollow Nature Preserve and Open Space
January 18, 19, 20 – Journal

Since the winter solstice (Dec. 2019), the nature area has experienced a gain of about 30 minutes in additional sunlight (day length = approx.9 hours 41 minutes) with sunrise at 7:47 am and sunset at 5:28 pm and at noon the sun is at an approximate 29 degree angle in the southern sky – rising higher each day.

Today (Sunday) the temperature reached about 40 degrees and it felt like a cool early March day given the bright sun (no clouds) – and with these conditions, I could sense that the birds would be out in the early afternoon.

As soon as I entered the nature preserve, I observed a Red-tailed Hawk flying slowly over the open space area (to the north) and it was just about 20 feet above the tree-line. The Red-tailed Hawk landed on the top of a telephone pole and as I walked up to get better images, if flew off further into the open space area. I have some images of the Hawk launching from the top of the pole, but I would not use these for posting for Research Grade, but rather as images for observations purposes. It was good to see the Red-tailed Hawk again after the winter conditions in the past few days.

After going through the gate and into the Nature Preserve and toward the Open Space area, I observed an Accipiter (genus) Hawk on a branch in large tree near the creek - but it was also overhanging the trail underneath. I think it was a Cooper’s Hawk (COHA) – given the characteristics versus a Sharp-shinned Hawk (SSHA) and given my capacity to observe the front and back of the COHA as I walked along the trail. I was fortunate to gather several images of the Hawk perching and in flight and yet – I was still not happy with the results, but this is the downside of the 2x “telephoto” on an iPhone camera. I think the Hawk is a male (smaller size) Cooper’s (COHA) and it hangs around this area frequently (depending on the weather). It flew away – but (not) surprisingly, on the way back (the round trip on the trail in the open space – about 40 minutes later) – the COHA was back! On the same limb – the same branch on the tree!

Going further into the Open Space – (the first loop), I was able to observe the usual suspects of birds: Northern Flicker (4 different birds); Woodhouse Scrub Jay; Juncos; Chickadees; Magpies. I saw a few Fox Squirrels, but they were further away on distant trees outside of the open space boundaries.

On the way back from the second loop (farthest from the entrance and at the north end), I stopped to observe Magpies go into their “gang” mode; that is many were flocking into on tree on the other side of the creek (east). I knew something was up…because when they do this…it can also mean (based on past observations) they are challenging (as a group) a bird of prey in the area.

I heard the bird of prey before I saw it. On my left, I hear a series of high pitched screeches, and then a hawk (or falcon ?) zoomed overhead, about 10 feet above my head, just above the tree line – going from my left to right without one wingbeat – it was gliding in FAST and over to another tree on the westside of the open space (or southeast facing slope). And then the gang of Magpies (about 10 or so) follow and land in a tree right next to the Hawk/Falcon.

This hawk had to be a small Sharp-shinned Hawk (SSHA) or a Falcon given the smaller size and compact look…I have a few images of the Hawk flying overhead, but I was lucky even to get those at all…this bird moved very fast. The Hawk then flew over into the center of the Magpies and circled up and out (to me it seemed an act of aggression or defiance against the Magpies) and then the Hawk flew off – heading north. And a few Magpies followed….

In summary, a very active weekend for birds and observations. Two kinds of Hawks – possibly three (RTHA, COHA, and a SSHA) although I am not sure about the third one – falcon or SSHA?

Les 100 premières observations de l'année 2020

Les 100 premières observations de l’année du projet Flore 74 ont été réalisées alors que nous ne sommes que le 20 janvier. Il faut dire que l’hiver 2020 démarre dans la douceur, permettant déjà, ou encore, la floraison de certaines espèces. Comme les alpages et les sommets sont sous la neige, l’essentiel des observations est fait en milieu urbain et dans les vallées. Les 100 observations décrivent 82 espèces botaniques, 67 plantes et 15 champignons ou lichens. L’espèce la plus photographiée est le Polypore marginé, Fomitopsis pinicola, qui nous rappelle qu’un quart de la biodiversité dépend du bois mort et que nous sommes dans un département forestier. L’hiver donne l’occasion de répertorier en ville les nombreuses espèces introduites à partir des jardineries ou des serres municipales. Les arbres, et en particulier les confères au feuillage persistant et aux cônes à maturité, restent bien identifiables. En cette saison les mousses et les lichens, gorgés d’eau, sont très photogéniques. Quelques floraisons sont à remarquer comme celles des noisetiers dans les haies ou de la ruine de Rome sur les vieux murs, sans parler des hellébores et des euphorbes, ou des pâquerettes, primevères ou pissenlits qui pointent déjà leurs pétales dans les pelouses ou les prairies. Merci à tous les contributeurs de ce projet pour lequel nous referons un point fin janvier.

There are lots of birds in winter; invite them into your yard.

When it comes to enjoying birds in your own backyard, winter is a season of both copious entertainment and a few practical challenges. On the positive side, this is the time of year when we enjoy the greatest variety and abundance of birds, as northern migrants find refuge in the mild climate of coastal California, and the relative scarcity of natural food encourages visits to feeding stations.

CNC 2020 Preparations have Begun!

We're just starting the preparations for CNC 2020 Ann Arbor! If you are interested in helping out, drop us a note in a comment. We're not sure what all the roles may be, but we'll probably want to generate advertising materials, organize hikes & other events before and during the CNC, host/facilitate ID parties, and much more, taking very little to somewhat more time/effort. Join us to make the 2nd Ann Arbor/Washtenaw County CNC a success!

Berry Springs Preserve Herps of Texas report, 19Jan2020

Two frog species were seen at Berry Springs Park and Preserve during the first monthly amphibian monitoring of 2020. Four Blanchard's Cricket Frogs (Call Index = 0) were photographed - two at the middle slough springhead, one where the middle slough crosses the trail, and one at the main ponds. At least two American Bullfrogs (CI = 0) were seen in the ditch in the pecan orchard, and Mike got a photo of one of them. It was a cool but clear night, and there had been about half an inch of rain during the previous week.
After the monitoring hour was complete, we got to watch the International Space Station rise in the southwest, go overhead, and then disappear into the earth's shadow in the northeast. Cool !
There was no flow to the pond from the middle slough springhead, but there was more water there than last month. The water level in the main ponds was average.
The monitoring period was 17:55 - 18:55.
Participants were Kathy, Christie, Mike, Diane, Krystal & Mark (welcome !), and Tracy & Mark.
Environmental conditions at the middle slough springhead at sunset:
- Air temperature = 53.6 deg F
- Water temperature = 64 deg F
- Sky = No/few clouds
- Water level = Below Average
- Relative humidity = 41 %

235 000 !!!

Дорогие друзья!
Прошла половина календарной зимы, а у нас очередная круглая отметка - на сей раз 235 000 наблюдений! На очередные 5 000 наблюдений в этот раз потребовалось ровно 11 суток (в прошлый раз мы ждали этого 9,5 дней). За эти дни число наблюдателей флоры России увеличилось на 30 человек, а число выявленных и подтверждённых видов увеличилось ровно на 100 штук. Пополнение проекта "Флора России" данными идёт благодаря экспертам, разгребающим неопределенные фотографии бэклога; владельцам крупных архивов, которые продолжают постепенно развёртывать их на платформе iNaturalist; наблюдателям-полевикам, которые загружают на портал только что сделанные зимние наблюдения. Тем временем в Крыму и на Кавказе уже началось цветение ранневесенних растений. Правда, пока очень скромное. Давайте зафиксируем статистику для истории.
Итак, 235 000 наблюдений наш проект достиг 19 января 2020 г. около 12:00 MSK.
The project reached 235,000 observations in 19 Jan 2020 at 12:00 MSK.
Статистика проекта / Project stats:
235,162 observations - 5,789 species - 1,980 Identifiers - 3,888 Observers
Статистика антипроекта / Anti-project stats:
28,918 observations - 3,169 species - 650 Identifiers - 2,092 Observers
С прошлого замера проект вырос на 5,2 тыс. наблюдений, антипроект подрос на 0,15 тыс. наблюдений.
Интересным событием стало появление в Википедии статьи о портале "Флора России" на iNaturalist.
Из вновь загруженных за 11 дней наблюдений больше всего лайков получили два интереснейших наблюдения пользователя @cryptobasis из Волгоградской области. Это папоротник марсилея, которая дождливой весной начинает стремительную вегетацию на дне лужиц в опустыненных степях региона, и невероятная по плотности цветущих особей популяция рябчика. Думаю, вы зацените, а мы попробуем теперь каждый раз при оглашении круглых цифр объявлять самые популярные фотонаблюдения из числа недавно загруженных!

Government of Canada invests to protect Eastern Hemlock forests in Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site

From: Parks Canada
https://www.canada.ca/en/parks-canada/news/2019/12/government-of-canada-invests-to-protect-eastern-hemlock-forests-in-kejimkujik-national-park-and-national-historic-site.html

News release
December 16, 2019 Maitland Bridge, Nova Scotia Parks Canada Agency

The Government of Canada is committed to preserving our national parks, protecting and restoring healthy, resilient ecosystems and contributing to the recovery of species at risk.

Today, the Government of Canada announced a federal investment of $1.4 million to enhance existing efforts to protect the threatened Eastern Hemlock forests in Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site. The announcement was made by the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard and Member of Parliament for South Shore—St. Margaret’s, on behalf of the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Minister responsible for Parks Canada.

Eastern Hemlock trees are critical to the park’s ecosystem and provides important habitat for many other species. The trees have lately been under threat from Hemlock Woolly Adelgid, an aphid-like insect, unintentionally introduced in Eastern North America from Asia, which has killed thousands of Eastern Hemlock trees over the past three decades in the United States. In 2017, this invasive species was found in southwest Nova Scotia and, a year later, was detected in Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site. The insect is a significant threat to the park’s forest and up to 80 percent of Kejimkujik’s Eastern Hemlock trees could be lost over the next three to ten years. Although it is not possible to completely eradicate this invasive species, Parks Canada acted early, implementing several measures in the park to control the insect’s population and slow its spread and impact.

As a result of the funding announced today, Parks Canada will continue collaborating with partners to implement new measures to reduce the spread of the invasive Hemlock Woolly Adelgid and increase the resiliency of Eastern Hemlock. Through the Slow the Spread – Ensuring resilience in the forests of Kejimkujik with Hemlock Woolly Adelgid project, control methods for priority old growth forests will be investigated. Parks Canada will also use silviculture and planting as a way to manage the growth, composition and health of priority hemlock forests in the park. Over the next five years, Parks Canada will have implemented critical steps to manage the invasive Hemlock Woolly Adelgid.

Parks Canada collaborates with academic and scientific institutions on ecological projects and partners with Indigenous communities and organizations across the country to conserve and restore natural ecosystems and important habitat. By working together, we can protect and conserve Canada’s key ecosystems for future generations.

Butterfly observations at Sinhagad valley Pune 19.01.2020

Today 19.01.2020 once again I decided to visit Sinhagad valley. So based on last Sunday's experience I had my breakfast at home with family 😊 and left for valley around 9:30 am. I was lucky enough to get a direct share auto from Nanded City main gate to Sinhagad Paytha. I reached around 10:15 am.
As my stomach was already full so didn't waste any time and directly went to the valley. On the way I peeped in the garden where we had spotted the Peacock Royal last week, but it wasn't seen today morning. It seems Royal's arrive in the afternoon only 😊.

It was a normal sunny day today and not that cool so the butterflies had already started their routine work of basking and nectaring.
Today my observation started with a hedge blue. And slowly all the common species were seen around.
A huge patch of the Lantana plant which is seen in the farms in the valley is the main attraction for these butterflies. the grass yellows, Emigrants, Pansy's, Tigers and few Rare buddies can be spotted on this plant. The Lantana plant flowers is a good nectaring for the butterflies as well as few birds too.

There are few patches of farmland in the valley. In the last week we had spotted few butterfly species in the farms but today the scene was different. The farmers have started ploughing their farms and getting ready for the Rabi season due to which the tiny flowering plants/weeds have been removed from the farm. So few blue family butterflies were not spotted in this patch.
Today i was lucky to spot a new species - Abnormal Silverline.
I had visited the stream also where i spotted mud pudding activities too. I managed to see the Common Nawab today but unfortunately it had become a prey to the Indian Paradise Flycatcher bird.

Following is my list of today's butterfly observations at Sinhagad Valley Pune.
1. Common grass yellow
2. Common Jezebel
3. Common Mormon
4. Common Crow
5. Daniad eggfly (M&F)

Gilbert Riparian Preserve

After seeing many interesting iNaturalist observations from the Gilbert Riparian Preserve, I paid it a visit today with my progeny @ejones17. It shares parking facilities with the Gilbert Library. We got there before the library opened and the parking lots were completely full. We were lucky to happen upon a car leaving and took its space within seconds of it clearing. Bit of a human zoo, but a large, spread-out facility with many lovely trails. Not much happening botanically, though the place is thick with Lycium fremontii which were beginning to bloom. It is an eBird hotspot, with 306 species (and 106 other taxa) known from the area. I didn't run an eBird checklist, being too busy taking photos. I added a few species to my life list. It's most definitely a place worth visiting if you find yourself in the area.

Beetles and fire kill dozens of ‘indestructible’ giant sequoia trees.

Deadly interaction between insects, drought and fire damage have forced California’s park officials to trigger climate crisis plans intended for the 2050s.

Nalle Bunny Run 2020-01-18

Only three folks joined me this morning for the monthly group walk on Hill Country Conservancy's Nalle Bunny Run wildlife preserve. What was originally forecasted to be a cold and rainy morning turned out to be beautiful: a little foggy at first, then cloudy and in the 60s with no wind and the sun peeking out a few times. We found 23 species of birds and here are some highlights.

A mixed species songbird flock appeared before we left the parking area and we spent a few minutes watching a couple Ruby-crowned Kinglets and a Blue-headed Vireo, and listening to Carolina Wrens and Black-crested Titmice. Carolina Wrens were one of the most numerous birds this morning and we never saw one. We only heard their songs and calls.

By the spring we found this neat yellow fungus growing on a dead juniper trunk. Its common name is Witch's Butter and I'm hoping to learn more about it from folks here on iNaturalist:

Witch's Butter Fungus

Birds were active but pretty difficult to see until we got down to the sandy prairie area by the lake. There it was easier to pick out some Northern Cardinals, a couple Yellow-rumped Warblers, House Finches, a single Ring-billed Gull flying over, and this beautiful American Kestrel perched on the fence line. That fuzzy vertical line is one of the cables making up the Pennybacker Bridge over Lake Austin:

American Kestrel

We heard plenty of Carolina Wrens but still never saw one!

On our way back up the hill from the sandy prairie we spent some time enjoying the waterfall. While we were there a mixed-species foraging flock arrived and it was great fun to finally get some good looks at Carolina Chickadees and Black-crested Titmice. An Orange-crowned Warbler also appeared.

Following the path through the western half of the preserve, bird activity was a little lower. But we enjoyed seeing some neat plants like Anacua Tree, Kidneywood, Brasil, and Blackjack Oak. Yaupon Holly full of bright red berries was all over the place, and I took this photo of one holly bush when the sun briefly came out:

Yaupon Holly

Almost back at the gate we spotted and watched an Eastern Phoebe looking for insects.

Here's our complete bird list on eBird.

And attached are my iNaturalist observations.

A Rocha Brooksdale Biodiversity Project kick-off!

Welcome to the A Rocha Canada Brooksdale Biodiversity Project. Here we hope to catalogue the biodiversity at Brooksdale Environmental Centre and share records among team members, volunteers, and visitors. This project can also include biodiversity observations from A Rocha-related activities within the broader Little Campbell River watershed, such as bird walks, habitat restoration activities, or species surveys. All are welcome and encouraged to contribute observations of any taxa (birds, mammals, fish, plants, fungi, insects, slime molds - you name it).

This project also kicks off a larger A Rocha Canada umbrella project, which will encompass the A Rocha Brooksdale Biodiversity Project along with projects from other ARC hubs, such as Cedar Haven Eco-Centre (ON), the Boreal Ecology Centre (MB), and Northern BC. Our hope is to encourage friendly competition among hubs to catalogue as many species as possible on the pieces of land that we collectively steward across Canada.

Why did we chose iNaturalist as a platform for storing our biodiversity records? iNaturalist contributes "research grade" observations to global databases (such as the Global Biodiversity Information Facility). Here at Brooksdale we are blessed with the task of stewarding an amazing property within the Little Campbell River watershed, and by recording the biodiversity present here on iNaturalist we can contribute to scientific research and conservation worldwide. iNaturalist also provides a user-friendly platform that makes it easy to submit and share records among team members, building a sense of community both here at Brooksdale and also across Canada. For example, a farmer working in the fields can quickly submit (via smart phone) a geo-referenced observation of a toad in the kale patch that can automatically contribute to the science team's Western Toad monitoring program.

Finally, we hope to encourage all those we work with to know and understand our place through keeping a close eye on the creatures who share it with us.

Happy naturalizing!

Projet Flore 74

Les observations vont bon train. L’application est facile et rapide d’utilisation. Il faut dire aussi que ce mois de janvier est clément et ensoleillé. Je n’ai jamais vu d’herbe aussi verte et autant de fleurs en un début d’hiver. Aujourd'hui on pouvait bien voir dans les haies, à côté des chatons, les fleurs femelles des noisetiers. En plus de mes observations, j’ai démarré le projet d’illustrer la flore de la Haute-Savoie. Les filtres que j’ai mis en place sont : des observations de 2020, limitées à la botanique (règnes Plantae et Fungi), sur le territoire du département. Personnellement j’en suis à 65 espèces, le projet à 92 observations et 78 espèces grâce aux contributions de 8 autres observateurs. Je pense qu’avec le printemps puis les fleurs d’alpage cet été, les champignons à l’automne, cela va donner un beau panorama de la biodiversité végétale de cette partie des Alpes.

Nature Nova Scotia's Big Tree Project

This iNaturalist project is part of the effort by Nature N.S. to create a database of the largest trees of all native species that grow in the province. The project started in 2005 and has collected about 60 tree measurements before this iNaturalist project was created. The naturens.ca (https://naturens.ca/trees) webpage has information on tree measurement as well as all the tree data and pictures for those large trees.

The NatureNS project was an addition to the Nova Scotia Forest Technician's Association (http://www.nsfta.ca/) selection of the annual biggest tree contest.

Calling all iNaturalists - the City Nature Challenge 2020 is April 24-27!

Welcome to the 3rd year of the City Nature Challenge: Lower Rio Grande Valley. We've increased our observation and species numbers each year - it'd be awesome to continue that streak! To do that, we'll need everybody we can to help explore our four counties and add observations from April 24 - 27 (but they can be uploaded and identified through May 3).

All observations are welcome! We do ask that if you make observations of captive or cultivated organisms, please mark them as such. However, documenting wild organisms is especially encouraged. Knowing when and where wild organisms occur is an important step in making urban ecology FOR cities; using ecological information to help inform decision-making for a more sustainable future.

I'm tagging some of our top observers for the region below. If I've forgotten someone you think would like to be included, please tag them as well.

This is the global website from the California Academy of Sciences and Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County: http://citynaturechallenge.org/

And here is the the Texas Parks and Wildlife site: https://tpwd.texas.gov/naturechallenge

I hope you’ll join in the adventure to whatever degree you want to or can – every effort is wonderful and appreciated. Feel free to share your thoughts/concerns/ideas in the comments. See you out there!
