We just saw one fishing yesterday. Bald Eagle. In bold. Impressive. Guess I forgot I was living in the USA. Oh my, but this was just a bird for t.v. nature programs when I was younger!

OK, this post will kinda be outing me. I assume this should have happened somehow. But not that many readers don’t know me already, right? Here is the big news: a paper of mine has just been published in American Naturalist. Yep, I’m happy for sure! (Oops, realize that it’s been online since one month already…).
There is a great post about chameleons at Rigor Vitae, with cool pictures and drawings… You better have a look!
Comme je n’ai pas beaucoup de temps pour écrire et poster ici, les lecteurs qui ne sont pas effrayés par un peu d’anglais peuvent faire un tour ici pour une petite lecture fort intéressante sur les caméléons, avec de superbes illustrations…
Open door. Backpack filled with field guides, water and camera. Walking a few blocks and then… Frick Park, Pittsburgh, PA. Time to begin blitzing wild.
Hey guys, I’m looking for freaky beasts and strange plants. I know spring’s been around already, young leaves are tilting all over the branches. Now that’s going to be fun. Actually, plants were standing still. Quiet.
I always wondered Amerindians’ tales were populated by so many animals. There always was a crowd of crows, a crew of shrews, rabid rabbits, ever beavers or rocking rococo racoons. And nothing like a Groundhog Day.
In contrast, when I was a child, I always had a hard time to even see any furry animal. Just a cat’s meeow in a while. They are so shy, overseas. Maybe I was too furious too. Dunno, but damn still.
Now it’s just like they are at every corners. It’s not only about rodent dances, funny bunnies, chirpy chipmunks, but when you may open the door : “Oh dear… A deer!”. Plain city, a deer. Never would have I imagined something like that. That’s one reason why America rocks.
