My Favourite Posts: #42 Steller's Jay

The Steller's jay is definitely one of my favourite birds. They have so much curiosity and personality. This post also has a photo from the top of the Vernal Falls in Yosemite National Park, which was an amazing place to visit

My Favourite Posts: #95 Magnificent Frigatebird

For me, frigatebirds have always been synonymous with the tropics, pirates, all that jazz - probably too much Monkey Island as a kid - so seeing them in person was awesome

There's soon to be one less species on the list for me to find. Unfortunately, this case is unrepresentative of modern extinction, most of which are believed to be occurring without us even knowing
The last Rabb's fringe-limbed treefrog :-(

A male of this species has died, bringing the population of this Critically Endangered amphibian down to a single remaining individual.

The male had been kept at Zoo Atlanta in the USA, in an effort to save the species from extinction. However, following a decline in its health the zoo took the difficult decision to euthanize the frog, to prevent it suffering and also to ensure that invaluable genetic material could be preserved. This material may one day allow scientists to study the species further.

I think some of these would be problematic in practice, but good ideas nonetheless. I especially like the idea of public labs, and everyone voting on a dream project, as well as building a "city of the future"

My Favourite Posts: #89 Inca Dove
In Mexico, at least in the areas we were traveling in these doves were extremely common. They're very cute - a lot smaller than the pigeons I'm used to - and they make a funny rattling sound when they fly
