American Robin (leucistic) | ©Robert Lewis
This partially leucistic American robin, Turdus migratorius (Passeriformes - Turdidae), found on Alvarado Road in Berkeley (California, US), has an interesting pattern of white and normal feathers, both on the head, back, wings and tail and also on the orange breast, caused by a failure to incorporate melanin into the feather structure - but only for some feathers.


Bitch!!!!!! Sit the fuck down and shut the hell up bitch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

North American Giant or Worm Millipede (Narceus americanus/annularis complex), Fontanelle Forest, Bellvue, NB, USA.
This is the largest species of millipede in the United States, getting up to 4.5 in in length. They live in moist forests in much of the Eastern 2/3 of the country. As with most millipedes, they are detritivores, and may exude a noxious chemical mixture from their back ends.
This specimen was about 4 inches in length, and was found on a trail descending form the upland forest down to the Missouri River.

I saw like five of these this weekend it was awesome

A male semipalmated sandpiper (Calidris pusilla) is recorded as flying over 10,000 miles in the past year! This tiny bird also made a remarkable six-day, 3,300-mile nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean from James Bay to South America, before moving on to his wintering area in Brazil…

According to a study in the journal Animal Cognition, chimpanzee’s do something that seems altogether arbitrary: ear accoutrements.

“Our observation is quite unique in the sense that nothing seems to be communicated by it,” says study author Edwin van Leeuwen, a primate expert at the Max Planck Institute in The Netherlands.

To figure out if this was really a tradition, and not just chimpanzees sticking grass in their ears at random, van Leeuwen and his colleagues spent a year observing four chimp groups in Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage Trust, a sanctuary in Zambia.

There’s no genetic or ecological factors, the scientists believe, that would account for this behavior — only culture.

Chimpanzees putting grass in their ears is like us wearing earrings.

The owl-faced monkey (Cercopithecus hamlyni) is found mainly in bamboo and tropical moist forests of the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Rep. of Congo. It is one of 218 mammal species found in Virunga, including 22 primates.  The monkey is listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. Many of its haunts are being lost as forests are cleared for agriculture. It is also caught in the crossfire of a civil war. The population is estimated to have declined by 30 per cent in the past three decades. image: Rod Williams/Naturepl.com
