Вклад птиц в захламление леса

Если вы когда-нибудь проходили мимо мусорного полигона, то наверняка видели тучи птиц, кормящихся на отходах. А также кучи мусора во всех прилегающих к полигонам лесах и полях. Часть этого мусора просто разносится ветром, но в очередную рабочую поездку на действующий полигон в Вологодской области, мне наконец удалось заснять и вклад птиц в захламление территорий. В прилегающем лесном массиве кучи мусора сосредоточены под высокими деревьями. Помимо мусора, на земле видны следы деятельност...

Westport Pelagic - Late July 2022 - Writeup summary

This trip to the pelagic zone off Westport and Cape Foulwind was the first of its kind ever for birding - a brief previous trip in 2002 (?) was much smaller scale and resulted in few birds seen. The boat used was a fishing vessel approximately 12 metres long and 4-5 metres wide, with an adequate open platform for viewing seabirds (and fishing, usually). There was a good group of eager bird-watchers, about 10-12. The boat crew and skipper were really nice guys and ensured everything ran s...

New computer vision model

We’ve released a new computer vision model for iNaturalist. This is our first model update since April 2022. The iNaturalist website, mobile apps, and API are all now using this new model. Here’s what’s new and different with this change:

  • It includes 60,000 taxa (up from 55,000)
  • It was trained using a different approach than our previous models, which made it much faster to train

To see if a particular species is included in this model, you can look at...

OK to add custom fields to your Indianhead area box turtle observations?

If you are tagged below it is because iNaturalist took off taxon geoprivacy and so now your records show up in our neighborhood box turtle project. I would like to add some custom fields to your observations for our project. It appears that I can do this, but I didn't want to do so without your permission.

You can see an example of the fields here

A Grosbeak adventure

A male Rose-breasted Grosbeak is a beautiful thing. When a family arrived a few weeks ago, there was great cause for excitement. First seen was the male, then the female, who was a slightly duller bird then her partner. She had a streaked belly, a bold white stripe above her eye, and a yellowish breast. Of course, she was quite large, and the same size as the male, who was about as big as an American Robin. They started feeding at the feeder, then disappearing. A few days later, a juveni...

Calling all curators for a virtual volunteer opportunity!

As we near the end of this growing season, there are many observations of our target plants that need to be added to the project. The process of adding an observation to the project is called data curation and we could use some help with it! This is a volunteer position and can be done from the comfort of your own home. Curating data is a simple process but is a task too large for just one person. The only things you need are access to a computer and some plant ID skills. No worries if y...

You can help protect species at risk using iNaturalist Canada

Nice to see some local contributions to this. Because of the citizen science efforts of @fylin and others we've been able to identify species at risk occurrences in Surrey that we weren't aware of. Information which is vitally important in informing our land use planning and public land management processes.

July Results and August Challenge

Hi Eco blitzers! How any of you made it out into the filed to look for our elusive banded gecko last month?

It has been a busy summer, sorry for the late notice we have a total of 6 banded geckos observed this year but only one from the past month. They are elusive and usually out at night. Good work Nick (cowturtle)

I apologize for the late notice for August Monthly Challenge Striped-tailed Scorpion. But you still have plenty of time this month to observe these species....

First Painted Lady of 2022 in Ames, Iowa

On August 16, 2022, I spotted the first Painted Lady of the season here in Ames, Iowa. It was large and fresh, with damage to the right hind wing that might have been caused by a bird attempting to catch it. The butterfly was nectaring on ironweed in a planted prairie bioswale. It spent at least 20 minutes in this area visiting ironweed flowers. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/131257109

Gall week 2022

Last year some gall observers posted observations to the Gall Week 2021 project. This year Gall Week will be from Saturday, Sept. 3rd to Sunday, Sept. 11th. This is peak season for galls in Britain & Ireland so I hope we may add more observations & species than last year. I'll be tagging some particularly prolific gallers in a subsequent post inviting them to join the Gall Week 2022 project.

Информация о виде

Благодаря общим усилиям пользователей iNaturalist на платформе накоплен огромный массив статистических данных. Посмотрите, что можно узнать, если вбить в строку поиска название вида в нашем новом видео.

Помните, что это только те данные, которые собраны пользователями-энтузиастами, поэтому считать их исчерпывающими и полагаться только на них не стоит.
