Quellón: Ecosistema urbano

¡Quellón es una ciudad hermosa y (bio)diversa! Por eso, esta es una invitación a registrar las formas de vida que la habitan, desde las aves que sobrevuelan en los muelles o reposan en los jardines, hasta los árboles que no se inmutan ante el viento y los hongos que crecen bajo ellos, esperando que de esta manera podamos reflexionar sobre los seres con los que compartimos nuestra cotidianidad.

Lepidium nitidum anther #

Jepson Flora CA says it has 4 anthers, Flora North America says it has 4 or 6. Ihsan Al-Shebaz did both treatments. Here is an observation with a definite L. nitidum (flat pedicel) showing 6 anthers, so I guess 4 or 6 is right.

January 21, 2022 Briar Summit Open Space

The start of a new year and new observations.

I'm happy to report that despite the DWP mowing down all the plants along the road in this area last spring/summer, many of the plants are growing back. Thanks to our great rainfall in December, things are looking really good. However, if we don't get anymore rain, I think our spring time may be early and possibly brief. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

I checked this place out a few times in December and many, many brittlebush were growing in with a few flowers on some. A few of the laurel sumacs are also growing in. The black sage is leafing out and looks pretty healthy. And several of the buckwheat have had a few flowers for awhile. And of course, there is plenty of mustard and a few other invasives.

With our warm weather in the last few days and with a bunch more flowers in bloom up on Briar Summit, it appears bugs have begun to come out all over. I'm still truly amazed at the number of insects California brittlebush attracts. Even without flowers there are plenty of insects if you look closely and have patience.

On this day, perhaps the most commonly seen insect was the sunflower seed maggot as well as a few other species of Trupanea. But I would say my most interesting finds are the three species I found in the vicinity of the smallseed sandmat which is also in bloom in a few patches. Just sitting in the dirt next to the plants I found these three interesting insects: a cool looking true hopper, a colorful tiny little plant bug (about the size of a large mite) and an insect I found the week before which I think belongs to the genus of spurge flea beetles. Last but not least I found a warty leaf beetle which seem to like the brittlebush and are such interesting little creatures.

I'm not sure how all these early arrivals will affect our wildlife as I'm sure they get confused with our erratic weather. By visiting the same areas on a weekly or bi-weekly schedule you can observe all the newly emerging plants and animals, even if it's not as exciting as going to a wholly new area.

Bird songs, calls and other bird sounds

In some habitats, to observe directly a bird may be extremly difficult; the identification of a bird relies then on identifing its call.
There are different methods to identify a bird through its song, call, noise, etc:

1) training the ear by listening to the calls and songs of birds properly identified and recorded in audio material (Cd, tape, etc.) that you can reproduce as often as you wish, and then compare the learned and memorized song and sound with that that you hear in the field in situ.

Humblebees 🐝

There is something attractive, real attractive to the Brown– belted Bumblebee, 🐝 and that is something sticky, sweet, and something irresistible. NECTAR! “The clovers are calling and I must go” is the number one saying of the bumblebee! One look at the clover and they’re dive bombing it! We know that when bees receive nectar they get some thing else too — pollen! And when they travel to the next flower they carry the pollen with them as well. As they dive onto the next flower the the pollen immediately sticks onto the stigma! Sometime later, seeds are formed because the pollen was transferred from one flower to another. But there is a valuable lesson that we can learn from this. God has called us to be like bumblebees. He has a work for each one of us. First of all he wants us to get to know him. His word is like nectar. It is sweeter than honey from the honeycomb. It bring life to our souls. It makes us happy to know that we have a friend who forgives us. But when we come to get the nectar there’s something else we get — and that is the pollen. Pollen is like the seeds of truth which are found in the Bible. And wherever we go we carry the gospel with us. The bee dispersed the pollen as he traveled from flower to flower. Wherever we are we can always spread God’s love. It may even produce seeds. (Fruit) In the same way the flowers can produce good things like fruits or seeds so our characters produce good things. We can produce the Fruits of the Spirit! The fruits of the spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (See Galatians 5:22,23) We should use every opportunity for good. “ In the morning sow you seed and in the evening do not withhold your hand; For you do not know which will prosper, either this or that, Or whether both alike will be good” (Ecclesiastes 11:6) We do not know who might be impacted by the seeds of truth that we have to share. That is why we share the love of God with all whom we come into contact with. Christ’s character can be shown in us by our words and unselfish actions. We can be humble like the bumblebees, faithfully doing the work that God has given us.

    How to identify Geranium core-core (Alderney crane's-bill)

    This project collects observations of Geranium core-core (Alderney Crane's-Bill) in California for the purpose of facilitating identification and preventing misidentification of this species in iNaturalist.

    Photo tips:

    • It’s important to get a picture of the entire plant.
    • It's also helpful to get close-up pictures of the face of the flowers, sepals, leaves, and fruits, if present.
    • If there are multiple plants in the picture, it’s helpful to crop your photo to focus on the plant of interest.

    How to identify Geranium core-core:

    • Leaves: This plant has broad wedge-shaped leaves divided 55‒80 % to base. Leaves have 5‒7 segments.
    • Flowers: The flowers have dark pink to purple petals that are broad and shallowly notched. The sepals are smooth – there are no long hairs.
    • Habitat: disturbed places.
    • Flowering Time: March through October


    Similar Species:

    • Geranium dissectum (Cut-leaved Crane’s Bill)
    • Geranium pusillum (Small-flowered Crane’s Bill)

    How to differentiate G. core-core from G. dissectum:

    • G. core-core leaves are darker and fuller; G. dissectum leaves are lacier.
    • G. core-core is much less common than G. dissectum.

    How to differentiate G. core-core from G. pusillum:

    • G. core-core flowers are a darker pink to purple and petals are broader and not so distinctly notched.

    Preliminary analyses! (1300+ observations! Now what?)

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you to all you amazing folks out there sharing your observations! More than 1300 observations have been shared by nearly 200 dedicated community scientists! Awesome.

    The collective movement of this community is an incredible demonstration of the power of working together to accelerate research and foster shared understanding. Please pat yourself on the back :)

    The observations shared in this project are invaluable for research and will be useful for identifying the factors affecting redcedar! We're thrilled to share we've been taking a deeper look into the data and are excited to see this effort translate into meaningful information for conserving redcedar.

    The below (preliminary) data visualization shows how healthy and unhealthy trees group differently when plotted against a combination of environmental factors (soil, climate and topography). The next steps are to identify what factors are most important for whether trees are classified as healthy or unhealthy.

    Learn more by attending one of our monthly research updates ( Anyone is welcome!

    Beaver Wetland Walk

    Yellow-rumped Warbler
    © Photographer: William Wise | iNat Observation: 66707961 - Yellow-rumped Warbler; Walton County, Georgia. January 24, 2018.

    Wednesday, 7:42 AM - at first light on the main water retention pond:

    • 17 Redhead ducks
    • 2 Canada Geese on the water
    • 1 Great Blue Heron by the bank
    • 13 Canada Geese fly overhead in V-formation

    Lunchtime - I pull on the large black rubber boots that my daughter Amanda bought for me. What used to be a small, usually dry overflow creek from the main pond has now turned into some fairly wide wetlands. Trekking down through the wet, muddy standing water I find several large beaver dams now transect the area. I turn on a GPS iPHone app to try and sketch out a map.

    There are five impressively long and somewhat high dams. It is amazing how much mud, leaves, sticks and branches are all pressed together to build these levee walls. They are so well constructed that there is no problem holding my weight. It is obvious the beaver have been quite busy here, though I failed to see any on my trek.

    Canada Goose
    © Photographer: William Wise | iNat Observation: 66707962 - Canada Goose; Walton County, Georgia. January 24, 2018.

    On my short, lunchtime nature walk I spot:

    • 4 Wood ducks flush, south end
    • 22 Canada geese on the pond at the southern terminus
    • 2 Black Vultures soaring
    • 1 Red-shouldered hawk hollering
    • 1 Red-bellied Woodpecker
    • 1 Carolina Wren flitting about
    • 1 Eastern Towhee scraping in dry leaves

    Later in the afternoon: a first quarter moon that rose at 12:42 PM is now plainly visible and hanging in the blue sky about 35° from the horizon, to the east.

    Return to Richmond

    After leaving Richmond 18 days ago, today marked our return. Our journey spanned nearly 4000 miles by van, and the adventures really began the more we traveled by way of foot and watercraft. Our 17 nights were spent at 9 unique locations, some of which were more challenging to get to than others. The real meat of the trip, or hummus, depending on who in our crew you ask, lies within the tales we won’t soon forget, and today’s long haul back our second home of Richmond gave us plenty of time to reflect on these memorable moments of our journey. Between the NPR podcasts and 2000s’ throwback playlists (yes, the 2000s are now throwback territory), tales of vibrant birds, reptiles, and sunsets were recounted. The trip was smooth, with a few stops for gas, and one for Chipotle, being the only hold-ups. The sight of falling snow sparked excitement for some and agony for others, but certainly served as a reminder of the stark differences in climate between the southeast ecosystems we had spent the past weeks studying and our home away from home in Indiana.

    The special group of novice naturalists, armed with the guidance of their fearless leader Chris “Antz” Smith, open ears and minds, and an avid distaste for mosquitoes, extracted every ounce of knowledge they possibly could from their one-of-a-kind firsthand field experiences. All Earlhamites returned to Richmond safely, and we look forward to formally sharing our experiences at our Presentation of Learning in the near future. Thanks for keeping up with us!

    Species at the Edge

    I've been thinking about species I've found in the Bogus Run Corridor project area that are at or near the edge of their range. Are there any patterns?

    Here's a hypothesis -- and I'm just putting it here to memorialize it. I'm not sure if there's anything to it at all.

    Species that are at the south edge of their range (i.e. are mostly more northerly, esp. more north and east) are found here in hyrdric habitats. Species at the north edge of their range (i.e. are mostly more southerly, esp. more south and west) are found here in xeric habitats.

    Now, at some point I would need to pick out, say, twenty or so species that are at the edge of their range - at least as mapped in iNat, and then see if this holds up.

    Video of finfish and invertebrates at Wall Beach, Northwest Bay, Salish Sea, January 23, 2022

    Yesterday, my dive buddies and I explored the sea life off Wall Beach. This is a shore dive site between Madrona Point and the log booming area in Northwest Bay, east of Parksville, BC, Canada.

    We observed 2 small Puget Sound king crab, salps, crinoids, a Monterey doris, swimming scallops and other invertebrates. We also observed lingcod (and 3 ling cod egg masses), many quillback and copper rockfish plus 2 tiger rockfish, and kelp greenlings. I was buzzed by a stellar sea lion while swimming back to the entry point.

    There is a steep stepped bouldery slope with some shallow walls at the deeper edge of this dive site, I will be returning soon to explore the deeper sections (my maximum depth yesterday was 108 fsw).

    The video including some of our observations is posted at

    Bird songs, calls and other bird sounds

    In some habitats, to observe directly a bird may be extremly difficult; the identification of a bird relies then on identifing its call.
    There are different methods to identify a bird through its song, call, noise, etc:

    1) training the ear by listening to the calls and songs of birds properly identified and recorded in audio material (Cd, tape, etc.) that you can reproduce as often as you wish, and then compare the learned and memorized song and sound with that that you hear in the field in situ.
    You may also record the sound, call or song during your field trip, reproduce it later at home and then compare it with the audio of the referenced songs.
    For comparison, choose the audios from species that you most likely will encounter in the habitat you are going to visit. In this way, you narrow the spectrum of songs you have to learn. It is thus important, you gather first information on what type of habitat are in the region you are going to visit and what species can be found in such habitats. Open sources audios of birds can be found in:
    This plattform allows you to download audios or hear them online. You may also download the sound frequency spectra of the audios.

    2) analysing and comparing the sound frequency spectrum of the call, song, sound of the bird you have heard with the sound frequency spectrum of audios recorded from properly identified species.
    The pattern of the sound frequency spectrum is species specific. Although some birds also may include in their species specific songs some elements from other species...
    This method requires additonal equippment apart from your "ear" and "brain" and the tape recorder, CD-player or whatever apparatus you may use to reproduce audios; at least a device with which you can record the bird song in situ is necessary (your smartphone, a small recorder...) and a software that converts your audio into a sound frequency spectrum.

    Open source software or applications that converts your audio into a frequency spectrum which you can then print or save and compare with referenced frequency spectrums are, for example:

    2a)Raven Lite (
    This software was conceived by the laboratory of Ornithology from the Cornell University specially for animal sounds. There are also more professional versions from Raven whose licence you may acquire through payment. In Raven Lite, there is an upper frequency upon which the programm won´t be able to analyse and represent graphically the sound frequency spectrum. This upper limit, however, is above the spectrum of bird song. Thus, you may be able to represent graphically the sound frequency spectrum of all the birds you may record.

    2b) The software developed by Audacity (
    You download the softfare to your computer and run it. Besides of analysing and representing graphically the frequency spectrum, this software allows you also to cut pieces out of your audio, reduce noise and much more.

    3) using a program of automatic bird song recognition online through the application of BirdNET (
    You upload online your audio; the application analyses then the audio and proposes you with an likelyhood estimation the identity of the bird species. The more "clean" the sound is, the less background noise there is and the louder the sound of the specimen of interest is, the higher is the likelyhood of the correctness of the proposed bird identity.

    4) identifying the bird call through sharing your audio with users of citizen science plattforms. This is a friendly and easy way to identify the bird whose call, sound, song etc. you have recorded. You upload your audio in such a plattform, share it with all the community and allow birders, trained users or experts to identify the bird for you ;-). Appart from using for this purpose you may also upload your audio in

    Recognizing birds through their song is fascinating and opens you the pandora box in at a first glance an apparently empty landscape...Viel Spaß! :-)

    Fight against Needs id

    Winter is a time of ids, but it's hard to feel for me, for more than a month I wait to see my level of unided observations to drop to 11k to upload some backlog, but it just doesn't happen even though my rate of uploading is close to zero. I already have a list of taxa I dropped observing as they get no or little attention attention no matter how much you try (lichens, mosses, tipulids, mosquitoes, snails, worms, etc.), it really seems birds are the only group I can be sure in to get an id/agreement, everything else fails.
    This year brought me 4+k of needs id observations, 1/ of all observed that time, last yar (2020) it's still 3,7k, so again still 1/4, it's frustraiting as far from that is unrecognisable observations, many are, but just checking what's already on species level would be cool enough. I know it's a rant that won't change anything and I don't want to have some blind agreements, but recieving ids is very motivating to both observing and making own ids, so in the end it's the platform that wins from it, not just myself. Facts that I fail at everything I try doesn't help that situation in a slightest, so I have no motivation to go out in winter.
    It's just amuzing how slow it's still in winter times, last summer it was just standing still, now it's 10 ids/day as a max and mostly lower.

    Another month of this! :(

    I was looking at climate data, and it appears that for where I live, February on average is 4 degrees warmer than January in its highs, and 2 degrees warmer in its lows. The days are getting a little longer, which is nice, but overall, it looks like it will be four more weeks of blurry grey blobby birds and lichen.

    I am looking forward to spring now!
