Chestnut Hill Reservoir Nature Walk November 28th 2022

Today, I walked down to and around the Reservoir in search of animals, specifically, insects. However, this proved to be a very hard task. While originally, I believed that this would be one of the easiest Nature Walks to complete, I found that in turn, I could not even fully complete it to the ability I wanted to. It was only at the end of my walk when I was exiting the Res. , that I was able to spot any insects at all. After 30 minutes of walking and seeing birds, geese, ducks, and squ...

Back at Houghton Trying to Find Animals

I failed, I did not find 5 animals but I had a great experience anyway. I started my walk because I needed some calm time after a long day of travel and a nature walk made sense. I went to Houghton Gardens again to find some insects and animals. I immediately grabbed a stick and started moving the piles and piles of leaves, which ended up being a problem, the leaves. I did see a pill bug as well as a high-jumping flea larva, but taking their picture was impossible. These insects have ada...

(Mostly) Insects

I went for a walk in Coldspring Park in Newton, MA where I turned over downed logs to search for insects. It was just under 50 degrees and the sun was beginning to set. At first I saw millipedes, small beetles, and extremely small spiders. Unfortunately the camera on my phone couldn't register the beetles and miniature spiders. When I moved to the next log I saw a moth resting on the side of the log as well as another millipede or maybe a type of centipede. I saw a spider web on the last...

Chestnut Hill Reservoir Walk on November 28, 2022

On November 22, 2022, I walked around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir by myself. The weather was cold and my hands were numb by the end of the 35-minute walk. The landscape was very different from when I walked the reservoir at the beginning of the semester. It was very hard for me to find animals, especially insects. I tried to look in the dirt near the plants and at the bottom of the trees. I anticipated that I would be able to get a bunch of pictures of them; however, that was not the cas...

November 28, 2022

For this nature walk, I decided to walk down to the Pine Tree Reserve by the Plex at BC and around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir because I thought that these would be the places that I would be most likely to find animals and insects. However, as the weather has gotten much colder in the past few weeks, there were many less animals and insects out and about today on my walk. I went in the middle of the day with a friend around 3:00 between my classes and it was sunny outside so this walk w...

Nature Walk on November 25, 2022

I took a nature walk over Thanksgiving break while I was home. I live in rural Pennsylvania, so I walked around the woods for about an hour. The weather was sunny, but windy and chilly. At first it was difficult to find insects, but once I figured out where to look it became easier. I found that most of the insects I found were hiding under logs or rocks. I needed to flip these objects over to observe the insects. There are definitely not as many insects around as there are in the summe...

11/28/22

I took a walk to and around the Reservoir. It was nice and sunny out with brisker wind by the Res. I was only wearing a light jacket most of the day, but I put on my coat as it felt pretty cold being outside for a long time. I kept hearing bird chirps, but it was hard to find the individuals that match the calls. And even when I did, it was hard to get an up close picture of them, especially as they flew off so easily. I have always seen Canadian Geese at the Res, and occasionally see so...

4th Nature Walk

For my final nature walk I decided to do it at my home in rural Maryland in order to see and record varying plants/animals from the ones in Massachusetts. Because it is almost December and the weather is getting colder, it was difficult to find many insects. However, I was able to find some very large black beetles (horned passalus beetles) in our firewood pile as well as stink bugs that frequent the indoors in the colder months. In addition, I found an eastern gray squirrel, which was n...

Walk in Singapore

For Thanksgiving break, my family and I went to Singapore. Singapore is so beautiful with tons of wildlife that I do not see in the US. They dedicate a lot of land to preserving nature on the island. On Thursday, Nov. 24, I took a walk with my family to Windsor nature park. It was a beautiful day with 85-degree weather and the sky was cloudy when I began my walk but cleared up towards the end. It had so much greenery and some brightly colored plants. I thought I would not be able to see ...

Animals and Insects Observations

Today, I started off with the objective of finding a lot of different insects. Because I knew that insects could be anywhere, I walked all around campus in hopes of coming across some either under rocks or on the trees. I was able to come across the ant when I was kneeling down looking at the ground however in general, it was very hard to come across insects. I believe it was due to the weather today, it being very chilly around 40 degrees. No matter where I looked, I was unable to find ...

Animals/Insects Nature Walk

Today I went on a nature walk around campus. I saw several insects and animals including a common ant, a house sparrow, a few ducks, many Canadian geese, and a common mouse. I started my walk at the top of the stairs next to the parking garage and walked down towards Voute. When I got to Voute, I found an ant hill in the mulch next to a tree trunk. There were several ants around the hole, but they did not appear to be carrying anything. As I walked along the way from Voute towards my dor...

Coyote Behavior in Winter (November – March)

Coyote Behavior in Winter (November – March)
It is not uncommon for coyote sightings to increase during the winter months in Wisconsin. In parks and natural areas, foliage is sparse so it may be easier to see coyotes moving throughout their environment. Although urban coyotes are primarily active during dawn and dusk in order to avoid human interactions, the winter season presents challenges to a coyote’s typical routine. Because their main food sources such as rodents and wild veget...

Nature Walk 4 - Animals

My nature walk was split between both my home town in Nevada and the Chestnut Hill/Newton area following the break period. The weather in both areas was cool and brisk but was not unmanageable. I thought it was very interesting seeing how much different and similar the species on either side of the country were and this very much relates to the idea of how, even in just one country, there is so much diversity in nature and how these species have found their niche in these differing envir...

Walk through Farnsworth Reservation

Over Thanksgiving break I took a lovely walk through Farnsworth Reservation. It was a cool day, around 40 degrees Fahrenheit and very cloudy/overcast. There were very few animals I saw on my walk which I think is attributed to the colder weather and winter season settling in due to the tilt of Earth’s axis. Because of this, it was hard to find many animals or insects. The first thing I saw on my walk was a flock of what looked like to be geese migrating south for the winter. As I looked ...

添加观察的正确坐标

因为google地图在国内的精度原因,它的路网和卫星图存在错位。如果要往项目里添加观察,应先将地图切换至“卫星影像”视图,且经纬度坐标需要以卫星图为准。去掉“卫星影像”下的“地名”勾选可以隐藏google地图错乱的道路网。 使用技巧可查阅inat论坛帖子。

We need crab records!

Dear Waterberg iNaturalsit community

Following on from my request for observations of amphibians, please can you also looks for and photograph any crabs you might come across.

Crab taxonomy is notoriously difficult, but we would like to have some records of where they may occur so as to assist with planning field work to document and collect scientific specimens to go into museums and also for DNA studies as part of the FBIP funded Waterberg Biodiversity Project

What is a range extension?

Range extension is flexible.

  • If it is only known from a 1mx1m patch, then 1000m is a range extension.
  • If it occurs from Ethiopia to Durban, is a record from Port Shepstone 50km a range extension?
  • Similarly, any record in a new country is a range extension, even if it is only a few hundred metres.

Let the user decide.
