Can’t believe we only have 2 more weeks of fieldwork to go! This means we start the countdown with only one citizen science day left at each site. Today we had an awesome group of folks from as far away as Maryland and New York to wrap up our final citizen science day at the schoodic beaver pond! #acadiabugproject #parkscience
Parks are full of creepy-crawlies that people try to avoid. Oddly enough, these same creatures may also have the same fear. This harvestman, a relative of the spider, is being hassled by even smaller mites. #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #oregoncavesnationalmonumentandpreserve #oregoncaves #oregon #natureupclose #insects #harvestmen #harvesters #daddylonglegs #mites #bugs #parkscience #caves #cavelife #fridaythe13th @oregoncavesnps
Since I’m (Allyson) laid up with a broken ankle, I’m going to continue a narration of birds and bugs from the couch. This is a Common Yellowthroat, a species that has become a star of our bird sampling effort because they are common in shrubs around most of the wetlands in Acadia. They are a species of warbler and the males are bright yellow with that distinctive black mask. You can often hear them before you see them- their call sounds like witchity-witchity-witchity. They were my gateway into understanding warblers, so keep an eye out for them in a wetland near you, but watch out because you might get addicted!

Because they weigh just 15-25 pounds, adult bobcats (Lynx rufus) are often mistaken for mountain lion cubs. They are strict carnivores, typically eating rabbits, woodrats, squirrels, pocket gophers, and mice. They can range from tawny brown to reddish, and their tails are shorter than those of most cats (hence the name). Bobcats inhabit much of North America, and can be found in 10 of 11 Sonoran Desert Network parks. They are susceptible to diseases transmitted from domestic pets, such as mange, and vulnerable to the anticoagulant chemicals commonly found in rat poisons. To prevent secondary poisoning of bobcats and other wildlife, owners of homes and businesses can use wooden snap traps or rat-zappers. If rodenticides must be used, avoid ones with anticoagulants, such as bromadialone, difethialone, or diphacinone. Alternative rodenticides include chemicals such as zinc phosphide, which are still toxic to other animals but thought to have fewer long-term effects. @chiricahua_nps #ParkScience #bobcats #mountains #mammals [Image of a bobcat walking by a wildlife camera, mountains in the background.]

#DidYouKnow arctic ground squirrels adopt the lowest body temperature ever measured in a mammal? Like many other arctic animals, arctic ground squirrels have unique physiological adaptations that allow them to survive during winter. Arctic ground squirrels are obligate hibernators and spend 7 to 8 months in hibernation. Researchers at the @uafairbanks have shown that the body temperature of hibernating squirrels drops below freezing, a condition referred to as supercooling. At intervals of two to three weeks, still in a state of sleep, hibernating squirrels shiver and shake for 12 to 15 hours to create heat that warms them back to a normal body temperature of about 98 degrees Fahrenheit. When the shivering and shaking stops, body temperature drops back to the minimal temperature. This type of hibernation is rare among mammals and scientists are still studying this unique physiological behavior.

Just in case everyone is dreaming of quitting their jobs to become field biologists based on our photos- here is what our data ends up looking like. 5 traps were set, 2 flipped and collected no data, 3 captured these small emergent insects. Why do some traps have more bugs? Why do some sites have more bugs? How will this change over the summer?What does this mean for the birds? These are the questions we are trying to answer with all these labeled baggies of bugs! #acadiabugproject #parkscience
Organizing our citizen science samples! #acadiabugproject #parkscience

Wildlife Wednesday! How do you monitor something that lives underground? Speak softly and carry a camera with a big tube. At Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, we’re helping Tucson Audubon to see if underground burrows are occupied by burrowing owls, which have been in decline there. Our team uses a special camera with a long tube that connects the lens to a screen. Before we send the camera down, we check for signs of activity. Scat, pellets, whitewash, and footprints are all signs of an active burrow. The exact reasons burrow entrances are lined with scat remains unknown, but speculation is that it may attract insect prey, control microclimate, or help hide the smell of an active burrow from predators. Pellets are regurgitated, indigestible bits of food, such as bones. Whitewash is a type of excrement. If a burrow shows some of these signs, then we carefully navigate the camera down to get a look at who is inside. In this case, we found two baby burrowing owls resting. Our return trips will be to monitor the health and growth of these owls. Burrowing owls can be found in 5 of 11 Sonoran Desert Network parks. #owls #burrowcam #BurrowingOwls #babyowls @tucsonaudubon #ParkScience [Image: two baby burrowing owls staring at the camera in their underground burrow and two images of biotechnicians using the burrow camera.]
This dragonfly nymph, known as the Cordulegastridae, is a favorite in the lab so far! Not only does it’s spoon shaped prementum (used for grabbing and ingesting prey) look awesome under the microscope but it also eats mosquitos! Stay tuned for more pictures of this really awesome insect! (thx to @melia_arter for the question) #acadiabugproject #parkscience
We are trying to start identifying some of the aquatic and terrestrial insects that we have caught over the last two days! Do you have any questions for us? #acadiabugproject #parkscience #entomology
Dr. Jackson is putting together the microscope that we will be using to observe the terrestrial and aquatic insects that we have collected so far (and the ones that we will continue to collect, of course)!!! #acadiabugproject #parkscience

Wildlife Wednesday! Named for its oversized ears, the mule deer is larger than its cousin, the white-tailed deer. Mule deer can be three feet tall at the shoulder and weigh anywhere between 100 and 300 pounds, with a black-tipped white tail and white patch on the rump. Their excellent hearing and eyesight warns them of approaching dangers. Males, called bucks, have forked antlers. Antlers are shed in mid-February; the next set begins to grow immediately after. Antlers are covered with velvety skin until fully formed, when the buck scrapes this layer off. Females are called does and do not have antlers. This photo was taken in Saguaro National Park’s Tucson Mountain District, but mule deer can be found in 9 of 11 SODN parks, where they thrive in many different habitats. #ParkScience #MuleDeer #WildlifeCamera #mammals @saguaronationalpark (Image: Black and white photo of an adolescent mule deer walking away from the camera)
Summer kicks off this Memorial Day weekend including Missouri River float trips and island stop-over picnics. While on the river please be aware of nesting shorebirds, which use the same beaches people do. Least Tern, an endangered species, and Piping Plover, a threaten species use sandbars and islands within the Missouri National Recreational River from Fort Randall Dam in South Dakota to Ponca State Park, Nebraska to lay their eggs and hatch chicks. One way to protect chicks and increase populations of these birds, is to stay clear of islands that have posted signs. These little birds nest in small, shallow depressions in the sandbeginning in mid-May through August. The Missouri River is home for the greatest number of northern Great Plains population of Least Terns and Piping Plovers. #BirdYourWorld #FindYourPark #parkscience #birds #Rivers50 #birdsofinstagram #kayaking #endangeredspecies #MissouriRiver #greatplains
Caught this awesome dude while trying to catch bats last night. This is a Louisiana Waterthrush that is part of a study occurring in the park looking at how these riparian obligates are being affected by the loss of the hemlocks.

Wildlife Wednesday! The American badger (Taxidea taxus) is found throughout the western and central U.S. In the Southwest, they are primarily associated with grasslands and desert scrublands. Badgers eat a variety of burrowing animals, including small rodents, lizards, and even young burrowing owls. Badgers are mostly nocturnal, but are sometimes seen during the day. They typically live 9-10 years in the wild, and may need as much as 2,000 acres of suitable habitat to have enough food and other resources to live and raise a family. American badgers can be found in eight Sonoran Desert Network parks, including Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, where this photo was taken. #parkscience #badger #wildlifecamera [Image: American badger walking in the desert.

The serviceberry is in bloom! Amelanchier alnifolia is one of the first shrubs to blossom in spring. Though more colorful stories abound in folklore, the name “serviceberry” is likely derived from this plant’s similarity to its relative, the “Sorbus,” or mountain ash—whose bright orange berries signal summer’s end. Together, the delights of these plants bookend the summer season here at Glacier and elsewhere in the region. #WelcomeSpring #serviceberry #MayFlowers #AmelanchierAlnifolia #phenology #ParkScience #BarkRangerGracie @GlacierNPS @GlacierConservancy #GlacierNationalPark [Image: Head of border collie surrounded by white blossoms]

Wildlife Wednesday! The coatimundi, or coati, is a member of the raccoon family. They can be found from South America to Arizona. Sonoran Desert coatis are most often found in oak- and sycamore-lined canyons, or in lower elevation riparian areas in winter. They have long snouts with flexible noses which they use to root in the soil for grubs and other invertebrates. They can flip over rocks in search of snakes and lizards. Coatimundi are excellent climbers and forage for nuts, berries, or bird eggs in trees. They are most active during the morning and late afternoon (diurnal) and spend the night in trees or caves. Female coati and their young live in bands and are joined by males during mating season. Coatimundi can be found in 7 of 11 Sonoran Desert Network parks. #wildlife #parkscience #coatimundi #wildlifecamera [Image: Coatimundi walking across a wash, its tail in the air.]

Ever watch the river rise before your eyes? On April 30 (left photo, left edge of graph), the Middle Fork of the Flathead River was flowing at 13,000 cubic feet per second. When we took yesterday’s photo (right), the river was up to 19,000 cfs. The orange triangles at the bottom of the @usgs hydrograph show the Middle Fork is flowing at about three times the 78-year average cfs for this same week. Our record winter snowfall is starting to change its form. 🏔 #SpringRunoff #MiddleForkFlatheadRiver #hydrograph #ParkScience #BarkRangerGracie [Images: Dog with river over her left shoulder, dog with river much closer, USGS hydrograph of Middle Fork Flathead River, April 30-May 7, ranging from 13K to 9.5K to 19K cfs.]
Volcanic processes are constantly changing the Earth. Did you know that #kilaueavolcano has been erupting nearly continuously since 1983 (roughly 35 years!)?

“I love science, and I love nature. Put those two things together, it’s awesome for me.” --Dartanyan, Youth Conservation Corps This young citizen scientist collects dragonfly larvae as part of the #citizenscience Dragonfly Mercury Project. Dragonfly larvae live under water for years, and they accumulate mercury in their bodies. This makes the larvae an excellent indicator of the amount of mercury in the water. Air pollution is a major source of mercury in park waters. #AirQuality matters. #AirQualityAwarenessWeek #AQAW2018 #BeAirAware #parkscience
Wildlife Wednesday! American black bears (Ursus americanus) are the most common and widely distributed species of bears in North America. They can be found anywhere--from forests to beaches and even alpine zones. Black bears eat a variety of things, from fruits to small animals, depending on what their local environment and the season offers. Despite their name, black bears can be black, cinnamon, blonde, blue/gray, or even white! Black bears are found in 10 of 11 Sonoran Desert Network parks, including Chiricahua National Monument, where this photo of a black bear was captured. #ParkScience #BlackBears #Bears #WildlifeWednesday #Wildlife #Animals #SafetyFirst @chiricahua_nps

Wait—more snow? To try and find out where spring went, Gracie headed out to the park’s weather station with Ranger Ed, a biotechnician who maintains the equipment and downloads data once each week. To their left is the West Glacier precipitation gauge, which has been busy measuring this winter’s snow. (That fence behind them is actually 4-5 feet tall.) This is a “weighing gauge.” It records the weight of water collected over time and converts the data to rainfall depth. The circle of plastic baffles is a windshield. The baffles help keep rain from blowing into the gauge cylinder, causing overmeasurement. Weather information has been collected at this site since 1949. This long-term record helps us track trends and patterns—and have an idea of what kind of vegetation growth to expect in the coming months. Glacier’s weather station is operated by the National Weather Service, part of @noaa. #SpringSnow #ParkScience #TongueOutTuesday #WeatherStation @nws @GlacierNPS #BarkRangerGracie #GlacierNationalPark #RainGauge [Image: Border collie with smiling man in winter hat, crouching in snow next to a plastic cylinder encircled by plastic baffles.]

It's World Water Day! Throughout the year, park researchers check in on the ocean chemistry of Glacier Bay. As a marine park, fluctuations in ocean chemistry can affect what can be considered the cornerstone of life here: phytoplankton. The annual blooms of these microscopic marine algae are essential to life in Glacier Bay. They are the reason marine mammals like humpback #whales travel 2,500 miles to these waters each year, and as the base of the food chain they support everything from the tiny zooplankton that feed on them to the seabirds, bears, seals and more.
