Critter Calendar

Happy 2016 everybody! To mark the New Year, we're rolling out a new weekly schedule of featured organisms that we're calling the Critter Calendar.

Inspired by National Moth Week, each week for the duration of 2016 we will announce a featured critter along with a little blurb to help you recognize them and know where to look. We will tally all of the observations made of the critter during the week in a project, and at the end of the week, we will recap what was found and highlight any interesting findings.

We've picked widely distributed, frequently observed groups and have arranged them based on the timing of past iNaturalist observations. So hopefully as many participants from around the globe as possible will be able to find these critters near their backyards.

This first week running from Sunday January 3rd through Jaunary 9th we are featuring cormorants and their relatives!

Still loving this concept, Scott. Each week, I've been hunting for the target taxa! :)

@nan333 this is Hymenoptera week -- time to go look for some bees and wasps -- or leave out some sugar and you're sure to find some ants! :)

Sam @sambiology where are you seeing what the critter is? I gave up on this a long time ago because I couldn't figure out where it was being posted.

If you look on the "wheel" above, you can see what the target taxon is... Is it showing up on your screen?

@sambiology , don't see any "wheel"

I see the conglomerate of all the weeks in over lapping circles and if I put the mouse over it the dates show up for the critter of that specific week.

but when I look up Projects, cannot find any for the weeks tied to the critters

I'm not sure that there are new projects created for each week. I'm still on the hunt for the taxon of the week every week (I wrote them in my calendar early this year!), but I think it has kinda phased out. All good -- I'm still having fun. Next week is 'deer week!' :)
