Wedge-shaped Beetle!

Ripiphorus Species (possibly R. rex).
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/25228961
by @merav

San Diego County only has two observations of these unique looking beetles, both in the month of May at Anza Borrego State Park.
These beetles have very short elytra that leave their wings exposed. They are often active on Sweetbush, though our observation is a very popular bachelor hangout (possibly near a patch of sweetbush?). Can anyone identify the plant?

Ripiphorus species have a fascinating life cycle. The female will lay eggs in flower buds and the larva will emerge at the same time the bloom matures. The larva will then hitch a ride on a bee and end in a bee nest cell, where it will parasitize a bee larva. Adults only live one to two days so the race is on to mate and lay eggs again!

The preferred bee species hosts are unknown.

Our two observations were in the month of May but Desert Insects & Kin (Lynn & Gene Monroe) describe an encounter in mid-March so both the Border Bioblitz 2021 and the City Nature Challenge should offer opportunity for some sightings if you find yourself in the desert region.

Who's up for the challenge?? I know these are now on my "bugket list" :)

Note: There is some controversy about the spelling of this genus, sometimes with an 'h' after the first 'R'. I stopped fighting the autocorrect which did not want to accept the more recent spelling iNat is using.

Less than 2 weeks till the CNC!

April 30th is creeping up on us pretty quickly! We hope you are as excited as we are about documenting biodiversity all over South Florida. Are you curious about what you might find in your area? The good news is you can get a really good idea by using the "Explore" feature of the iNaturalist website or app. There are many different ways to look through the data and it's a great way to get inspired to find all kinds of organisms around you. If you are new to iNaturalist and want to learn more, clicking around the website is a good start but you can also check this PDF out:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/16fWrL3Ggw0CA7OkuIE_RFQemLNYZITXV/view?usp=sharing
Another good resource is available here:
http://www.cassisaari.com/inaturalist-tips-tricks/

If you use instagram, make sure to check out our page @CNCSOFLO
We're also on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CNCsoflo
And we also have a website: https://cncsoflo.jimdosite.com/

Please spread the word to any nature lovers you know as we really need this to be a team effort to really showcase how many species we have here and how much we care about our nature :-D

Field Journal #6

Start: 1:05 pm
End: 3:45 pm
Location: Redstone pond, Burlington Country Club gold course
Weather, mostly cloudy, 8.7 mph wind east, 50 degrees F
Habitats: pond, birch stand, pine stand, bushes, open air, snags

Today I saw an amazing amount of bird species, most of which were songbirds. I was really lucky to see so many birds and I was at times overwhelmed by all the different songs and calls I was hearing. The highlight of the day I think was finding a group of four Hermit Thrushes walking around near some bushes and deciduous trees.

City Nature Challenge Frequently Asked Questions

Here is the link to the City Nature Challenge's FAQ page if you have any questions.

https://citynaturechallenge.org/cnc-faqs-page/

A couple of highlights:
1) When can I start making observations that will count for the City Nature Challenge? When should I stop?

All observations made starting on April 30 at 12:00am YOUR LOCAL TIME and up until May 3 at 11:59pm YOUR LOCAL TIME will count for the City Nature Challenge.

2) Do I need to join the project and add my observations to it for them to be included?

No. All observations that are made within the boundary of the project between April 30 – May 3 will automatically get pulled into the project – YOU DO NOT NEED TO ADD YOUR OBSERVATIONS TO THE PROJECT. You’re welcome to join the project though – that way you’ll get notifications about News posts that are made, and the project will be listed on your observations that get aggregated into it.

3) How can I make sure my observations are in my city's CNC project?

If your city is using iNaturalist, the easiest way is to go to your city’s project, click the “Observers” tab, and look for your name there! If you’ve joined your city’s project, you can also look at your individual observations and you’ll see your city’s project listed under the “Projects” sidebar..

4) Do I have to make observations using the app? What if I want to use a real camera?

For iNaturalist, while it’s convenient to use the app to make observations, it’s fine if you want to use a real camera. You can upload your observations using the Upload tool on iNaturalist, and if your camera doesn’t have a GPS, you can drop a pin to indicate where you made each observation. If you’re planning on making most of your CNC observations using a camera, we recommend watching this short video on how to best use iNaturalist’s Photo Uploader.

5) I took so many photos during the CNC that there's no way I can get them all uploaded before the end of the day on May 3 – what should I do?

Relax! Luckily we have a week – up until May 10 at 9am YOUR LOCAL TIME , where you can work on uploading all the observations you made during April 30 – May 3. They’ll still get added to your city’s CNC project, as long as they were made in the April 30 – May 3 window.

We look forward to your observations!

  • Greater KC Nature Challenge Team

Question about the Traditional Project Aggregator

Hi all,

iNaturalist still have 797 projects created by 264 project admins that are still using the old Traditional Project "Aggregator". We removed the ability for new Traditional Projects to Aggregate when we launched Collection Projects in 3 years ago and had hoped the projects grandfathered in that were already using the Aggregator would slowly convert over to Collection Projects. This post is to check in with those still using the Aggregator to try to learn more about why you haven't converted over to a Collection Project as we consider the future of this feature. It being the Northern Hemisphere Spring, we're looking for ways to make iNaturalist more efficient and this clunky Aggregator process which runs hourly on these ~800 projects is something we'd love to phase out.

Some background, Traditional Projects (ignoring the aggregator for the moment) require people to manually add suitable observations to the project. Collection Projects use "Observation Requirement" filters to find suitable observations and automatically display these observations in a project. The aggregator was built before we built Collection Projects to make it so that observations could be automatically added to a project. While Traditional Projects support some features that Collection Projects don't (e.g. requiring observation fields, slightly different details regarding sharing restricted location data, the ability to subset observations that can't be automatically filtered such as "Observation of the Day"), none of these features work well in a Traditional Project with the Aggregator turned on. So we're currently unaware of any reason why a project admin would prefer to stick with a Traditional Project with the Aggregator turned on instead of migrating to a Collection Project.

I've mentioned all 264 project admins along sides their Aggregating Traditional Projects. If you likewise aren't sure why you haven't converted over to a Collection Project we encourage you to do so! Click 'edit' on your project and if you're project can be automatically converted you'll see a banner that looks like this:

If you don't see this banner, it is because there's not a 1-to-1 correspondence between the "Observation Rules" used by your Traditional Project and the "Observation Requirement" used by Collection Projects. For example, Traditional Projects support a "must be on list" rule which would have to be replaced by a series of more than one "Include Taxa" Observation Requirements in a Collection Project. You can try removing the problematic rule, converting the project, and then adding any necessary requirements to the Collection Project. Or if you have specific questions, please add a comment here with links and details and I'll take a look.

Alternatively, if there's a reason why you can't accomplish the goals you're accomplishing with your Aggregating Traditional Project with a Collection Project please let us know here as we'd love to understand these uses cases better.

Lastly, if you are not actively benefitting from the Aggregator being turned on for your project and aren't motivated to convert your project to a Collection Project, please the Aggregator off by editing your project and unchecking "Automatically add observations to this project", many thanks!

Thanks in advance for seeing and responding to this mention!

Field Journal 6

On April 18, 2021 I went to the Richmond park in Richmond, VT and sat by the Winooski River starting at 4:00pm and walked along the banks until 5:30. It was clear and sunny and was about 50 F. This was mostly a riparian area because it was all along a river bank.

6th Journal Post

April 19th, 2021
Start Time: 3:00 pm
End Time: 4:30 pm
Location: High Ridge Circle, Franklin Massachusetts
Weather: Cloudy and drizzling, West 9 mph wind speed and 15% precipitation.

Temperature: 47 F
Habitat: Suburban community with tall trees all around, In my backyard with a pool and surrounded by small to medium bushes in a garden.

Species: 1 American Robin, 1 Eastern Phoebe, 1 House Finch

Today was sadly a light day, I believe this to be because it was not only cloudy but raining as well, albeit only slightly. I was sitting on a bench writing for a while, hearing only passing bird calls but not loud enough to record and not distinct enough to make out. However, after a while I looked at my house and I saw a bird on top of my house, a grey bird from the back but bright red, almost pink, on its chest and face and to me there was no doubt in my mind that was a House Finch, sadly I could only get the back end of it. After about 30 minutes, it was getting tiring, but after looking through my binoculars I saw a bird that had dark wings, a dark back and tail feathers along with a dark capped head but contrasted with a white belly, a large black eye, and a black small beak, at this point I knew it was one Eastern Phoebe. Sadly I could not get a picture of the bird, but I hope my description would suffice. 15 minutes more went by and I was getting restless, until that is I looked where I saw the House Finch earlier and I saw an American Robin, clear as day and I could get a good picture by looking through my binoculars with the camera and taking a picture. That was the last clear bird I was able to see for the day. Overall, it was pretty uneventful but the weather did not help.

Field Journal 6: Field Observations

Time: 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Date: 4/19/21
Location: Colchester Bog
Weather: 57 Degrees F, partially cloudy, slight breeze
Habitat: Bog habitat surrounded by mixed hardwood/softwood forest habitat

Colchester Bog was a good spot to bird today, with plenty of birds observed along with some other wildlife including garter snakes and chipmunks. While in the bog, I spotted multiple Northern Cardinals, and I continued to hear more throughout the walk in the surrounding woods. Also abundant were Black-capped Chickadees, some of which coming very close to me (I used the spishing technique, which seemed to work fairly well). The beautiful song of a Song Sparrow was clear to hear, even though there were Cardinals and Chickadees making noise as well. Other species observed while in the bog area include two Canada Geese which I heard from a distance, as well as an American Crow (which I also only heard). In the surrounding woods area (and field just outside of the woods), I observed two American Robin, 4 Tufted Titmice, 1 White-breasted Nuthatch, 1 House Sparrow, and 3 Downy Woodpeckers.

fj 6

Date: 4/19/2021
Start time - 7:45 am
End time - 9:15 am
Location - Winooski River Walk
Weather (great) - started out at around 45 degrees with some partial clouds and even a spot of rain later on, but as the sun started to really get going it got up to around 50 degrees by 9. There was minimal if any wind.
Habitat(s) - Wooded area along Winooski river: the woods are primarily deciduous trees, with a few small stands of young coniferous trees. There was a lot of forest debris like fallen snags, stumps, dead leaves, and branches. Now, there is a lot more greenery on the trees but still not a lot--I can see the tiny green buds up in the branches, though, and there's a lot more grass and plant life pushing through the detritus in the forested sections. The banks next to the river and the offshoots are much greener now, but that main marsh bit is still stubbornly yellowed and blown over. The grassier, open areas were definitely more grown than last time.

Celebrating Biodiversity in the Capital Regional District

Join the CRD in celebrating local species and ecosystems by participating in the 2021 iNaturalist Biodiversity Challenge, in honor of the International Day for Biological Diversity (May 22). Over a four day period, May 21 through 24, photograph and document local biodiversity in the CRD using the free iNaturalist website or app, and help to build a record of the nature that surrounds us.

Joining the CRD’s Biodiversity Challenge is simple and fun:

  1. Find nature in your backyard, neighbourhood, favourite park or beach between May 21-24. Observations of wild native plants, animals, fungi, insects, tracks, or even scat are all welcome.
  2. Use a digital camera or smart phone to capture your sightings.
  3. Create a free iNaturalist account and upload your observations and photos.
  4. Identify your findings as best you can and have people from the iNaturalist community help confirm your identifications.

By uploading photos of local biodiversity to iNaturalist between May 21 and 24 you will join a large community of local nature lovers who are helping to inventory and celebrate the capital region’s amazing flora and fauna. Observing and learning about the natural world that surrounds us can boost mental health and wellbeing, and is a key step in conserving nature for future generations.

Visit www.crd.bc.ca/biodiversity for more information on biodiversity in the CRD and the iNaturalist challenge, including details about prizes and iNaturalist resources that will help you get started.

Ornithology - April 19, 2020

Date - April 19, 2021

Start time - 1:12 pm
End time - 2:17 pm
Location - Woodside Natural Area
eBird Checklist - https://ebird.org/vt/checklist/S85908188

Start time - 2:17 pm
End time - 2:55 pm
Location - Saint Michael's Natural Area
eBird Checklist - https://ebird.org/vt/checklist/S85910708

The afternoon was warm and sunny, and unsurprisingly it started off slow which only Song Sparrows and a Northern Cardinal. Probably the most exciting sightings of the day were when we stopped to take a break at a bench overlooking the wetland area. Next to the bench area was a number of conifers where there were two Ruby-crowned Kinglets singing. Unfortunately, they weren't singing loud enough or consistently enough for me to get a good recording. As we were listening to the Kinglets, a pair of Black Vultures flew over the wetland area.

After we completed the Woodside loop, we walked into Saint Michael's Natural Area via the trail that meets the road near the Woodside parking area. There we were able to observe via sound several woodpecker species, including my first of the year Yellow-bellied Sapsucker! We also heard a triller next to a wetland area but were unable to determine if it was a Dark-eyed Junco, a Chipping Sparrow, or a Swamp Sparrow.

Non-bird observations included a Baltimore Oriole nest and a bunch of Painted Turtles.

Journal Post 5 - Prairie Peatmoss

Date: 3/16
Time: 4:15-5:20pm
Weather: Sunny, cool

Through the forest grounds that were exposed to sunlight, the prairie peatmoss began to make its appearance among the other emerging species across the forest floor. Emerging signs of life among what seemed to be a sea of dead dried-up leaves and twigs. The light green clusters are characteristics of a prairie peat moss and the wet, moist soil is a perfect growing ground for the species.

Journal Post 4 - Broom Moss

Date: 3/16
Time: 4:15 - 5:20pm
Weather: Sunny, cool

Going through the forest, steering away a bit from the lake are the bigger trees. Coming up on one tree, its base is lined with moss. As not much sunlight gets through to the bottom, there aren't many other species of plants observable, besides its own leaves that grow by the bark. The coarseness of these moss tufts is a prime characteristic of it being identified as broom moss.
