“What kinds of spiders can you find in the United States?“ Many people are terrified of spiders and find them extremely creepy. This is unfortunate because they are crucial to our environment, and they are incredibly interesting creatures! Luckily, most spiders are harmless, and they control the insect population. In fact, without spiders, our food supply would be in jeopardy! Today, you […] The post 26 Common Spiders Found in the United States! (2021) appeared first on Bird Watching HQ.

I have yet to see either the Purple or White-letter Fritillarys nectaring but a trip to Fornebu yesterday to allow the Beast to run around socialise within the fenced in dog park gave me at least 5 Brown Hairstreaks (slåpetornstjertvinge) which were all nectaring and showing ridiculously well. I saw the upperwing of 4 and all these were males suggesting that they had only just emerged (males usually emerge before females). This is a very good count for this species in Norway and the planting of lots of ornamental plant including Blackthorn seems to have been good for them and Fornebu may well be one of the very best locations for the species. I also saw 3 musk beetles which is an enormous species of longhorn beetle. There were not many birds to see although I did flush a migrant Great Snipe from long grass whilst searching for butterflies. Today I was in Maridalen and came across quite a few Red-backed Shrikes. First I had a male with three young begging for food. It is normal that it is the male that looks after the young once they leave the nest and the female normally disappears very quickly. It was therefore surprising when I later found an adult female feeding a single youngster. Had the male been predated and she was left to bring up the young on her own? male Red-backed Shrike (tornskate) juvenile and male a headless youngster and an adult female with a youngster Brown Hairstreak (slåpetornstjertvinge) all brown upperwing shows it to be a male a Common Blue (tiriltungeblåvinge) and a slightly obscured Brown Hairstreak Musk Beetle (muskosbukk) Peacock butterfly (dagpåfugløye) Green-veined Whites (rapssommerfugl) attempting to mate

På Fanø og Rømø har rævesikre elhegn sikret terner, klyder og præstekraver fred og ro på familiefronten. Fuglenes fristeder i Nationalpark Vadehavet har givet de kollektive kystfugle succes med æg og unger efter flere år, hvor ræve har ædt rub og stub.

Almost everyone can identify a “garter snake” in the United States! But here’s the problem: There are multiple species and sub-species of garter snakes! Therefore, figuring out the identity of the SPECIFIC snake you are observing can be challenging. This is especially true since many of them have similar appearances and behaviors. Today, you are going to learn about 24 garter snake species […] The post 24 Types of Garter Snakes in the United States! (w/ pics) appeared first on Bird Watching HQ.


On 17 July 2021 BirdLife International lost its honorary member Fritz Hirt, one of the leading Swiss conservationists, a few days after his 76th birthday. Fritz Hirt was an integral part of the formation of BirdLife International, which would not exist in its current form without his visionary leadership.

Since my last post we have had a few days of rain but this has resulted in my birding activity increasing as rain at the end of July means good falls of waders in Nordre Øyeren. Fathering responsibilities and decorating chores have not given me time to walk all the way out to Årnestangen but Svellet has been very productive even though the viewing distances involved are at the absolute maximum for what can be described as acceptable for ID purposes. I have managed to see Broad-billed Sandpiper, Curlew Sandpiper, Little Stint, Bar-tailed Godwit, Knot, Great White Egret and Mandarin so it has been quite acceptable though. When the rain stopped briefly on Friday I was able to continue my search for Hairstreaks in my local neighbourhood and this time located multiple Purple Hairstreaks (eikestjertvinge) on oaks at two locations and saw egglaying at both sites. This was mid-morning and I think the butterflies were keen to be active after a few days written off to rain. In the afternoon when it was very hot I only saw a single Purple Hairstreak in the same areas showing just how difficult these species are to find. I also had two small butterflies flying high up in elms but they never stopped such that I could see them so I couldn’t ascertain what they were. I'll start with a male Common Crossbill - there are lots of cones in the forests and this winter could be good for finches. In addition there seem to be lots of rowan and asal berries so we could have lots of Waxwings and hopefully some Grosbeaks this winter a local rarity - Mandarin Duck and a now expected annual rarity a Great (White) Egret at Nordre Øyeren finally good views of Purple Hairstreak (eikestjertvinge) a driving lesson for Jr in Maridalen gave this very unusual sighting of Moose - unusual for two reasons - I don't remember ever before seeing a bull with antlers here before and it is perhaps only my second ever mid summer sighting in the Dale If you have read this far then you may also be interested in some pictures of dragonflies..... a small local pond that has been part of my dog walking / hairstreak searching route gave me a three very similar species on Friday from only 5 observed individuals. To see the differences between them you need to look at the leg colours and patterning on the side of the breast (I had to ask for help): here a Ruddy Darter (blodrødhøstlibelle) and a Black Darter (svarthøstlibelle) and a Vagrant Darter (sørhøstlibelle)
