ID's in Dallas/Fort Worth... Been slacking on these!

I focused a lot of time during the city nature challenge to add in ID's -- tossed on about 6k from Dallas/Fort Worth, and I've not picked up since then! Anyways, just a short note to mention that sooner before later, I'll get back onto adding ID's. :)

Also, just FYI -- here's how I tend to do ID's. I'm just a regional person -- unfortunately, I'm not too knowledgeable about the flora and fauna outside of north central TX (at least, not too knowledgeable yet!).

I search for all observations made per day and switch the filters to those needing ID's and the ones that already have ID's (to check the verifications).

For instance, here are all of the observations uploaded on 1 June 2019 (observations that are uploaded on this date aren't necessarily observed on this date):
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?quality_grade=needs_id%2Cresearch&place_id=57484&created_on=2019-06-01&captive=false&createdDateType=exact
33 pages of observations! I start with the last page, and then move my way backwards so that I try to look at each observation. Some will slip through the cracks, but at least I'll try to see most of what people spotted.

The DFW area is pretty loaded with biodiversity - and there's a massive citizen science community here! It's awesome to see what everyone else sees here! :) I'll be back to adding ID's sometime soonish. :)

That's really cool! I like your strategy of starting with the last page first.
You make such a big impact, your presence, or absence, is definitely felt by all of us in the North Central Texas iNat community. :)

Every single person I meet that has been on iNat knows "Sambiology" by name if not by face. I think you are doing just fine...

I have always been so impressed with your ability and willingness to process IDs. I just wish I were knowledgeable enough to help. As I have often heard you entreat others, "Don't take it too seriously. Remember, this is supposed to be fun."

I learn so much by following your IDs and posts. Keep up the good work. You inspire the citizen scientists like me, to take a look around and notice the diversity in nature. and to challenge ourselves to learn a little more each time we venture out

Keep up the ids. I can't believe you are even able to identify so much. I'm basically restricted to birds, mammals , and a very small amount of other taxa.

I've been working on ID's for the month of April still. There is a lot out there to look at.
