February and March Challenge Updates

Hello Eco-Biltzers! I wanted to give a brief summary of the February and March Challenges.

February-We had 6 observations of Phainopela by 5 participants.
And 19 observations of Mistletoe by 9 participants.

March (so far there is still 2 days to go!) 4 observations of Costa's hummingbird and 22 observations of four species of wolfberry (Lysium spp.).

Kudos to all of you Eco-Blitzers that were able to locate and photograph the monthly challenge species. I observed the Costas hummingbird on wolfberry at Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area....but was not swift enough to capture it! Some species take more skill and patience then others :-)

We also have an unexpected participant that is monitoring bats at the parks (permitted) and Matt is sharing the sonograms (echolocation calls) of the bats on here! So we are also excited about that!

I hope many of you are learning about new species and techniques for capturing photos while participating in the Eco-Blitz program!

Keep up the good work!
