The Birds That Audubon Missed: Discovery and Desire in the American Wilderness is about birds and taxonomy, history and art, the birding god we have revered and torn down, the ornithological originals we’ve ignored or simply don’t know. It’s also about personal journeys, where knowledge comes from and how it is shared, investigating the past through the lens of history and the lens of informed imagination, learning how to negotiate the grays of our ornithological heritage, and

PLEASE HELP- CRESTED GECKO

Reddit Animals

Hello everyone!! My crested gecko has a vet appointment July 8th, that is the soonest they could get her in. This is due to me living in an area exotic vets ate uncommon due to the low demand of them. I have a part time job, and my checks are usually about 400$ every two weeks. I live 30 minutes from my work so usually spend about half of that on gas there and back home.

Rupununi River Cruise

10,000 Birds

Originating from the word “Rapon” which translates to Black-bellied Whistling Duck in the Makushi language, the Rupununi River flows north and then east, where it then joins the mighty Essequibo River that flows northward through the rest of Guyana, ultimately meeting its end at the country’s (only) Atlantic coast. During the rainy season the Rupununi River shares a watershed with the Amazon and is connected to several other water courses via flooded plains.

Kerkini: Europe’s Best Bird Lake?

10,000 Birds

Though the birding around Lake Kerkini may be outstanding, it’s inevitably the lake itself that is the centre of interest. It’s a reservoir, not a natural lake, and was formed by damming the Striminos river, which flows into Greece from neighboring Bulgaria (unfortunately bringing with it huge amounts of plastic rubbish, creating problems for the National Park.

Yellow-legged Gulls Larus michahellis breed on the Rock of Gibraltar and the late spring arrival of Griffon Vultures Gyps fulvus coincides with the time that the gulls have chicks on their nests. Gulls are aggressive in the defence of their young and they don’t like big raptors getting close.

Birding Shanghai in May 2024

10,000 Birds

May is the month in which spring migration basically comes to an end in Shanghai. The month starts with many birds and ends with very few – but some of those are quite spectacular. So, particularly near the end of May, we have the usual mixture of boredom and excitement that birdwatchers all over the world are familiar with. To defend itself from being accused of being boring at dinner parties, the Brown-breasted Flycatcher proudly points to its orange feet.

best tools for on the go bug observation?

i love going on walks and observing/taking pictures of the insects I find along the way, and was wondering if anyone could recommend a magnifier or tool of some kind I could carry with me! I don't really capture bugs, just watch them where they are and move along. I've been thinking I could get a loupe or a pocket microscope, but I'm not sure what magnification or model would be best!

Rescued a hurting crow

Reddit Animals

Hello. Where I live there are a lot of stray cats and I saw a few of them gathered in a place on my walk this evening. There was also the sound of a crow, and I was curious because they don’t usually make sounds in the evening. I walked there and saw the cats gathered closely around a crow. The crow clearly couldn’t fly or run away, it was hurt. I realized the other crow was yelling to protect the sick one.

Dog gets sick every other day

Reddit Animals

For the past two years my dog will lick the floor aggressively. She then paces quickly around the door and whines to be let out. After we go outside, she eats grass as if she’s never eaten anything in her life and either poops, throws up, or just ends up being fine. I have spent a lot of money on vet appointments for them to do blood panels, check stool, etc.

Do you think some animals are less afraid of certain people?

Reddit Animals

Genuinely curious why animals are scared of some people more than others. Wild animals aren't really afraid of me at all. I notice this all the time where they just go about their business as if I'm not even there. Heck even deer standing just 6 feet away from me just stare for a moment then walk away. Birds too will come up right next to me looking for food when I'm sitting down.

How to introduce 2 cats to each other?

Reddit Animals

So I have a 5 year old Arabian Mau and I recently adopted an abandoned 2 year old Turkish mix. I have separated them as my 5 year old hissed at the 2 year old and I’ve put them each in one half of the apartment. The thing is, they talk to each other very rarely behind the door and I haven’t found a way to show them to each other other than putting one in a carrier or having the door very very slightly opened.
