1,200

I just happened to notice that this project has reached 1,200 observations AND 510 different species. As you're out and about at different locations in Meriden, please take a few moments and document what you see, from lichens to mammals and everything in between. Perhaps at some point, someone will find value in the observations and data from this project.

I'm also interested in establishing a pollinator pathway through the city, and I'd love it if we could pay special attention to what's pollinating the wildflowers.

I hope also that more people will become interested in documenting the many different life forms that we have here in our little city. If you haven't already, please join me!

1,000+ observations!

We have now surpassed 1,000 observations in Meriden! As of this writing, we have observed 428 different species. I'm sure that most people have no idea as to the diversity of life found in our little city. I am still amazed at what I observe just in my own backyard (literally) as well as when I'm out on a trail or visiting a pond.

I hope that more people will join the search for lifeforms in Meriden. I believe that it's important to recognize the diversity of plants, animals, insects, and other lifeforms found in the city. It helps reinforce how important it is to preserve and value open space as well as our own backyards, which definitely can contribute to habitats.

Happy searching!

Spring!

I've been trying to visit Hanover Pond regularly to see what birds are passing through. I recently saw hooded mergansers and common mergansers. Today I saw some grebes, as well as a female common merganser. They were pretty far out, so I didn't get the best photos of them. I'm hoping to spot a common loon at some point. Please share what you observe anywhere in town!
