Cicada-Palooza

Cicada-Palooza, Magicicadamageddon or whatever you want to call it, is off to a great start in the watershed. Both males and females of at least Magicicada septendecim are out and about, at least here in the Hyattsville and surrounding areas in PG County.

Remember that there are 3 species of Magicicada how to tell them apart? Find more info here: https://www.cicadamania.com/cicadas/where-will-17-13-year-periodical-cicadas-emerge-next/#species

But long story short: in order to make confident species ID you must take pictures of the abdomen and the presence/absence of orange coloring between the eye and the base of the wing.

This is also a great time to document interspecific interactions like predation and such. I saw/observed cicada nymphs, almost intact, in cat scat! Today I saw a House sparrow tackling a cicada while driving, could not make the observation...

Happy Cicada Watching!

Jorge

City Nature Challenge 2021 starts tomorrow!

The weather for the next four days looks lovely! Nature is inviting us to enjoy the outdoors, take some photos along the way, and share those observations on iNaturalist. Friday April 30 is the kickoff of the four day City Nature Challenge event. The event isn't over after Monday, May 3! There are another six days of identifications, and on Monday May 10th the overall results are announced.

Two events in particular might be of interest:

5! 4! 3! 2! 1! For City Nature Challenge Fun

If you happen to be out and about this weekend, every observation helps document the biodiversity of the Anacostia River! And, you contribute to documenting the overall DC region's wildlife for City Nature Challenge 2021. The DC region contains a great number of habitats, all coming to life in response to spring warmth. Check out City Nature Challenge Washington DC to learn more.

The event runs from Friday April 30 to Monday May 3. Results may be uploaded through May 9th. Observations uploaded are automatically included in the City Nature Challenge DC data if they are observed inside the regional boundaries. The resources page has plenty of helpful information.

This week 225 observers made 1462 observations between Sunday, April 18, 2021 to Saturday, April 24, 2021. Among the top five observers, @ronwertz observed 187 examples of life in the Anacostia watershed; @izafarr contributed 91; @dtread1 contributed 68; @stephen220 contributed 56; and @jmgconsult contributed 55. Rounding out the top observers, @lbyrley contributed 44; @epic2112 contributed 43; @wilpersm contributed 35; and @carrieseltzer and @kristin-marie each contributed 29. 90 people contributed one observation, 35 people contributed two observations, and 16 people contributed 3 observations. Plants stayed in first place (853 observations), followed by Birds (186 observations), and Insects (1839 observations). Protozoa had the fewest observations, with just one.

April 21: 8 days to City Nature Challenge 2021!

City Nature Challenge DC is an annual event that invites observers to record observations between Friday, April 30 and Monday May 3. Observations may be uploaded between April 30 and May 9. On May 10, the global results, organized by city, will be reported out.

The Anacostia watershed is fortunate to have many dedicated observers who regularly share their observations on iNaturalist. The information gathered helps document and celebrate the extraordinary richness of life in the DC region. There are safely distanced and virtual events planned if you would enjoy participating in a group activity during City Nature Challenge.
