Just spreading the word - Texas Parks and Wildlife - Winter Storm Uri Wildlife Deaths project

Please, spread the word to add your Texas winter storm death observations to the Winter Storm Uri Wildlife Deaths project. Spread the word, please.

Texas Parks and Wildlife is trying to better understand the impacts of Winter Storm Uri (mid-February 2021) on wildlife. Please contribute any observations of wildlife that you suspect were killed due to the cold and include photos where possible. Please also complete the extra observation field "Number of Individuals" so we can account for multiple individuals that were noted in a given observation.

Naturalist @greglasley - he will be missed

I just found out that Greg Lasley @greglasley passed away on January 30, 2020 after a long and difficult recovery effort from a double lung transplant. He was retired from law enforcement, a super birder, birding literature contributor, avid moth-er, iNaturalist super observer and was always willing to share what he knew. I'm glad to have had a virtual connection with him, and I'm glad to know he is free from pain and breathing beautiful air. You made your mark and earned your wings, friend.

Am I the only one that cannot access the iNat Forum?

For months I have been trying to access the iNat Forum. I was able to create an account whenever the forum was first released, but I have been unable to access it every since. I have sent an email to iNat help, but I haven't received a response yet. I've tried clicking the link under Community>Forum and the link that comes in the email digest that I get from the Forum. After clicking either way, I get a white screen and the tab keeps spinning, like it is trying to load, but it never does load. I have tried different computers, locations and web browsers to no avail. Is anyone else having or had this problem? If so, have you been able to resolve this issue and how? You're help would be greatly appreciated.

Global Big Day is this Saturday, October 6! Please, report your bird observations in eBird also:)

Global Big Day is this Saturday, October 6! Please, report your bird observations in eBird also:) You don't have to be birding exclusively or have verifiable photos either, just report your bird sightings in ebird.org this Saturday, and try to be as accurate as possible with location, identification and how many of each bird species that you see. Thanks, friends!

Quote from eBird.org:
"Every year for the last four years Global Big Day has set new heights for a single day of birding. This massively international collaborative birding event has been so great we want to have another worldwide eBird Big Day in October. Why October? Because spring is rejuvenating the southern hemisphere and the northern reaches of the world are in the midst of migration. No matter where you are, we’re confident you can find some great birds on 6 October. Let’s see what we can find together on the first October Big Day!
How to participate
1) Get an eBird account: eBird is a worldwide bird checklist program used by hundreds of thousands of birders. It’s what allows us to compile everyone’s sightings into a single massive October Big Day list—while at the same time collecting the data for scientists to use to better understand birds. Sign up here. It’s free.
2) Watch birds on 6 October: It’s that simple. You don’t need to be a bird expert or go out all day long. Even 10 minutes in your backyard counts. October Big Day runs from midnight to midnight in your local time zone. You can report birds from anywhere in the world.
3) Enter what you see and hear in eBird: You can enter your sightings via our website or—even easier—download the free eBird Mobile app. You can enter and submit lists while you’re out birding, and the app will even keep track of how far you’ve walked, so you can just focus on watching birds. While you’re downloading free apps, try out the Cornell Lab’s Merlin Bird ID app for help with identification. Please enter sightings before 9 October for our initial results announcement.
4) Watch the sightings roll in: During the day, keep an eye on how the lists are growing in different parts of the world. Follow along with sightings from more than 100 countries. Stats will be updated in real-time on our October Big Day page."
