I had the pleasure of being invited by Jim Ray, wildlife biologist at Pantex, to volunteer for a Purple Martin conservation research project. The project would consist of trapping 22 Purple Martins which would be identified, measured, weighed and samples of feather and blood would be collected.
Do you have a favorite plant or animal (and by animal I mean that includes insects too!) that is likely to be found at Wildcat Bluff or in our region? If not, we can help you find one!
I was surprised to see this tiny bloom on February 17, 2013 even though our area has already had a few high temperatures in the upper 60's. The plant was not familiar to me and because it had already claimed some fame I had to see if I could learn more about it.
