KenCheeks Banded Water Snake
Banded Water Snake commented on by KenCheeks Augusta, Georgia, USA5 years ago


I agree with your comment. This snake was photographed at Phinizy Swamp Nature Park, which is the coastal plain region of Georgia. For their species list, Phinizy lists Banded Water Snake but not Northern Water Snake. Northern Water Snake is usually found in the mountains and piedmont of Georgia. Thanks for the comment. I do like to make sure that my postings are accurate. I will correct the posting.

Well, I would have had no clue on the ID of this spotting. I browsed your spottings, and this is one of my favorites. By the way, I added my Carolina Mantis to the Marvelous Mantis mission as you suggested. By the way, I saw that you are a veterinary assistant. My niece is in her first year of vet school at the University of Georgia. Happy spottings!

Cool frog. I have never seen one, even in a zoo. I scanned your spottings, and you have a diverse collection. I added my Guinea Wasp to the Mission on Animal Architecture per your request.

This looks more like a Slaty Skimmer. Take a look at this link and see if you agree

Mountain Chickadee commented on by KenCheeks Arizona, USA5 years ago

I visited Phoenix about six years ago for a business conference, but did not have much time to spend birding. I did spend one afternoon in the Desert near Glendale. I never realized how beautiful the desert can be. If you ever get over to the Georgia-South Carolina border, let me know. I have some good public spots for birds, odes, and butterflies.

That is a good shot just to get this rascal into the frame. Nicely done.

You have an extensive collection of spottings, but this Mountain Chickadee was one of the more interesting species to me. We just do not get these in the southeast. Thanks for suggesting that I add the scientific name to my ring-necked ducks. I fixed the oversight. Here is hoping more good spottings come your way.

This blue crab is packing some attitude. I like your Beach Discoveries mission. Per your request, I added my sea rocket plant to the mission.

From the pic, it's hard for me to confirm. But, I am not an expert. If you do not get a confirmation on Project Noah, you might try posting in 1) Facebook group or 2) I have good luck posting moth pics at both places.
