Erica porteri, Erica tenax and Erica thomae

A few observations turned up from Pringle Bay that are purple instead of white (thomae), green (tenax) or purple with white tips (porteri).
So what are they? None of this is helped by Ted Oliver sinking them all into Erica thomae and not recognizing any subspecies or varieties under the species, despite the historical taxonomists regarding them as good species.

So what do we have on iNaturalist?

Journal 5.

Tuesday, March, 21st.
The weather was +6 degrees Celcius.
It was not windy (6 MPH from W).
The location is Conference House Park, Staten Island, NY.
The time was 10:55 am.
While walking in a park that I liked after visiting it for the first time on Friday while working on our group project, I saw a pine tree. The genus Pinus is one of my favorite types of plants, so I was excited to take a picture of a beautiful small tree by the beach.

Pubescens versus Plumosa

This species pair seems to cause quite a lot of confusion, and in many observations it is not resolved.

On the Peninsula they key as follows:

  1. Petals lanceolate, oblanceolate, ovate or lanceolate-ovate, or consisting of an ellipitic or linear blade and basal claw, never hood-shaped in the upper part. Calyx tube with hairs within: P. pubescens
    1' Petals with upper part hood-shaped; bracts leaf-like, twice as long as the flowers: P. plumosa

Discoveries during David Weges Wildlife Tracking Course - March 25-26 at the Apricot Centre

David's course is fabulous and we highly recommend him for an in depth study of tracking, trailing and learning the signs and behaviours of UK animals. A perfect course to prepare us for the Dartington Parish Bioblitz on the 13th May.

March 26th - Taeniaptera trivittata

We're happy to announce another online workshop! Here are the details:

This week we'll look at the Micropezidae and learn how to recognize the common species T. trivittata using the existing notes. I will also work on improving the notes and hopefully making a more formal resource.

As always, our meetings are completely informal, and everyone is invited to speak their minds and ask questions to the group. Participation is vital for learning!

Please feel free to le...

Rainy days 2 -3

Day 2 was a rainy one, and the few dry windows didn't line up with my work schedule. So it was a rainy early evening walk, but I had a walking companion and we did a nice 3.5 mile circuit through the neighborhood. No observations posted, but miles were logged! We did not gain any new donations, but we did gain 2 new iNaturalist project members - welcome!

Day 3 so far - I snuck in a 1.5 mile loop through my neighborhood park in the morning during a lull in the rain. Recorded 2 pla...

Hi all,
I was hoping some folks might volunteer to lead some in-person or virtual events (outings, walks, discussion hours, ID blitzes) for the upcoming CNC.
Myself, I am recovering from a broken ankle, and will likely have quite limited mobility over the course of the four days, but I am hoping I will be mobile enough to lead a limited outing after insects and spiders. Remains to be seen though, and in all likelihood I won't be able to roam very far.
So if you have someth...

Last Day of Spring Break Birdwalk

Field Journal #4
4:20-5:30pm Centennial Woods
Partly Cloudy, 26 degrees
Streamside woods habitat

I set out for Centennial Woods this past Sunday and got to the entrance closest to campus at 4:20. I carefully walked down an iced over path to get to an open, sunny spot where I had seen birds before. I packed a sandwich and I was hoping to find a log or rock to sit on with a view of good perching branches above the brook. As I started down the hill towards the brook, I h...

Location: East Woods, South Burlington, Vermont
Weather: Sunny, 38 Degrees Fahrenheit. Mixed hardwoods and Hemlock forest, forest clearing.

A multitask of sorts, birding throughout a trip to Potash Brook for a lab assignment. The first hour was spent unsuccessfully. After the appearance of a few American Crows flying overhead before walking down the ice-covered trail, there were practically no birds to be found. ...

BioBlitz results!

Thanks everyone for joining our annual winter BioBlitz at Kelley Park! We love visiting Kelley Park in the winter, as it's a great place to observe winter life in the middle of San Jose. During our event, we saw California slender salamanders, arboreal salamanders, native snails and slugs, and even slime molds and mushrooms. In fact, we documented 34 species of fungi, on mulch, logs, dead and living trees, and also on some annual plants (rust).
We're always amazed by the high number...

Animals of interest in the Seba Beach region.

Wabamun Lake has seen significant change in landscape in the 20th and 21st century that have vastly changed it from what it once was. As to be expected, these changes have been reflected in the fauna of the area, with certain populations declining and some increasing. Apart from the human changes to the Wabamun area that makes it notable, its location also serves as an unusual mix between boreal forest, parkland, and foothills. With old foothills to the west of the lake, as well as on Co...

On Saturday, March 18, I spent a couple of hours at The Desert Conservation Area near the border of Marlborough and Sudbury, MA. It was sunny, about 50 degrees F, and there was enough wind that I could hear it blowing in the pine trees. The Desert is a 615-acre pitch pine/scrub oak community, which is fairly rare in Central Mass. I’ve been visiting The Desert for most of my life, and I remember when the Conservation Commission did a prescribed burn about 10 years ago to stop eastern whit...
