June Challenge wraps-up

Hey Team!

I know it has been hot out there in the desert these last few weeks, but i have to say i was surprised by the number of White-winged doves i saw devouring the Saguaro Cacti fruit this year. Maybe it is because i have been made more aware of this relationship or maybe it is because the saguaro cacti are producing above average number of fruits. If I would have had my camera with me I would have had a plethora of WW dove and saguaro pics.

We had a total of nine WW dove observations at four parks (Estrella Mountain, White Tank, Usery and San Tan Regional Parks) and six saguaro cacti for this month. Our challenge winner is Ecoexplorer with 4 observations. Great work Kathy!

Some good news!! Maricopa County Parks Eco-blitz was recently in the news paper.. link is below.

It would be great if we could get over 100 participants join the program by this years end...please tell your friends about it . It really is a super fun and and interactive way to learn about our native plants and animals while contributing to science!

Thanks all.

Next months challenge is the Harris Antelope Squirrel , new post coming soon.
