Bothering People

Hi all! I just @ a ton of people in order to get some of my many Needs ID plants and other organisms confirmed. I've tried to only tag the same people for two or three observations at maximum, feel free to tag me back if there's something you need confirmed that I could probably look into.

Southern Illinois Trip

I just got back from 4 days in Southern Illinois- I'm going to have a LOT of observations coming over the next few days since I took 1,800 photos over that time. My most interesting non-iNattable sighting was a barge stranded a mile inland near Miller City, Illinois, due to floodwaters from this spring.

Discord Server Update

Yesterday, on my iNaturalist Discord server, we got to interview the Crime Pays but Botany Doesn't guy from Youtube briefly. I started that server expecting maybe 20 people. 200+ members and counting, and now we're interviewing YouTubers. Second to getting out of bed in the morning, I think that's the best thing that we've achieved all year. Most of the credit for setting this up should go to @michaelpirrello.

CTAP

I'm proud to announce that from now through August 31, I will be working for the Critical Trends Assessment Program of the Illinois Natural History Survey, monitoring plants across the state of Illinois. Since many of the monitoring sites are on private land, quite a few of my observations will be obscured. Just figured I'd throw that out there.

Update- March 30

https://lostinnatureblog.wordpress.com/2019/03/30/lifer-damselfly-on-a-youtubers-shirt-and-other-snake-road-adventures/

Well I've gone and posted another entry to my blog. I also want to say that of late I've heard that a few people intend to try and win this Illinois Botany Big Year, and that at least one of them isn't me. I want to wish my competition good luck. Many of you know FAR more about field botany than I do, and I've enjoyed learning much about plants in this state from your observations.

I'm thrilled at the arrival of spring and I wish anyone who reads this has a good and productive spring.

New blogpost for Spring Break. I'm looking forwards to even more spring. Thanks again to everyone who IDs what I put out here. I'm learning so much from it.

Armadillos and Cottonmouths, Oh My!

Another blogpost entry, after the associated observation blew up in a couple of Facebook groups.

Getting Back into Blogging!

Hi everyone!

I'm starting up the old blog once again at https://lostinnatureblog.wordpress.com

Today's post is about yesterday's adventures along the Mississippi River Valley (Kinkaid Lake Spillway, bottoms around Jacob Illinois and briefly in Oakwood Bottoms)

Thanks!

Hey, thanks to everyone who's attempted to ID my plants/amphibians/birds this year. I've learned many ways to misidentify plants, and I've found a few neat ones along the way. One of my favorite recent discoveries was my lifer Pennywort:

Winter Botany Attempts

Well, as I'm joining in the Illinois Botanists Big Year, I figured I'd try my hand at winter botany. Be forewarned, my woody plant ID skills suck.
