2023's CNC Stand-outs

In 2023, San Diego County's most-observed species during the City Nature Challenge was of blue dicks (Dipterostemon capitatus), and the second-most observed species was red bush monkeyflower (Diplacus puniceus).

And while every single observation and identification counts, we want to recognize our to our top observers and identifiers from last year as well, and give them a special shout out!

Our county's top five observers were:

How iNaturalist is Life Changing (Podcast Episode)

Like so many, iNaturalist has been a life changer for me. It's a huge part of the equation that has set me on to devote my life to nature conservation.

I want to share how great iNat is and encourage more people to use it, so I've created a new podcast episode as part of my Jumpstart Nature organization:

Monday: Scat Pack

It's day two of New Jersey Audubon's BioBlitz 2024!
Yesterday's challenge was a tricky one...finding an animal with gills. But you did it! Shoutout to tom_reed for submitting a horseshoe crab observation. These ancient creatures breathe through book gills...flap-like membranes that resemble pages in a book. And the winner of Sunday's challenge is dianneconnor for their observation of the common pill woodlouse (aka roly poly). These terrestrial critters evolved from aquatic ancestors ...

This Alpine Haircap Moss, or Polytrichastrum alpinum, is a moss species that I had not seen before! Although it is naturally occurring, I have also seen it planted in landscaping and gardening uses—especially in a potted flower arrangement. I observed this species when I was getting back into my car after a hike on the Lunch Creek Trail outside of Ketchikan. While on the hike, it occurred to me that there are not a lot of wildlife, plants, or just wild specimens across the board that ...

Third Hike-Bittern Marsh Trail

My third hike was Bittern Marsh Trail within the Merced National Wildlife Refuge, a notable wetland habitat in Central California. The weather was ideal, with temperatures in the low 80s and no wind. The trail offers a flat and well-maintained path, making it accessible for both hiking and leisurely walks. This setting provides a great opportunity for wildlife observation and photography, particularly of the diverse avian population that the refuge supports. I even found multiple owl pel...

Walk to North Beach

I walked to North Beach 4/20/24 at 5pm. It was very breezy and low 50s. I noticed a lot of birds in Burlington singing until I got close to them as if they didn't want me as a predator to know where they are. Or they start singing extra loud when I am there for me to know that this was there space. A house sparrow was defending a bare bush which didn't seem like the most desirable territory, which maybe that means they weren't of the highest fitness. Nest selection can be seen from birds...

Intertidal Advice for the City Nature Challenge

Not long now until the start of the CNC. Some of you might be considering a trip to the rocky shore. Here are a couple of important points to consider before planning your trip:

1) Please avoid intertidal reefs located in Western Taranaki currently covered by the shellfish ban under section 186A of the Fisheries Act 1996. Taranaki Iwi, associated hapū and others are understandably keen that locations with potential kai (the list of species is much longer than yo...

A journal post so people can add comments because I will have missed taxa to include / exclude and that's probably easier than messaging

Self-explanatory title. This project is meant to collate any observation of any tree (and a few bigger woody shrubs, because the line's a blurry one) in London, be it freshly planted, self-sowing and thriving in natural spaces, or even garden and park specimens.
