Final Day to Observe!

Today is Day 4 and the final day to observe for this year's challenge. We've got until May 9 to upload and identify photo and audio files.

Did you know that both the Android an the iPhone apps now allow recording of audio files within the app? Update your app and give it a try! Audio is how we'll know if you have a fish crow or an American crow. In fact, we don't even need a photo!

At the moment, DC is doing beautifully in the global standings: 2nd for number of observations, 8th for number of species, and second for number of observers! I've been doing my part for the Species tally by recording every little gall and leafminer I can find. Big thanks to @megachile and @ceiseman for patiently and diplomatically handling my observations. If you want to give it a try, add your observations to the "Galls of North America" or "Leaf Miners of North America" project and be sure to note what plant species is the host. Shots of front and back of leaf, holding the leaf up for backlighting, and magnification will all get you a better chance of an ID to a species that not many other users have recorded (yet!)

Looking forward to the next week, we have some fun virtual events coming up. Wednesday, May 5, 7 - 8:30 pm is our Virtual ID Party. Register here! You can help with IDs and learn new species and iNat tips.

Monday, May 10, 7 - 8:30 pm is our Virtual City Nature Challenge Celebration! Register here! We'll be sharing CNC highlights and recognizing leaders in some fun categories.

Enjoy your day and I hope you find something new and amazing!
