Here's the recap of another busy week at EwA and a few highlights of what's coming...

📸  So many sightings again this week. If we have to pick one, that'd be the observation of a pair of mallards by Christine (look at that male in flight: stunning colors!). Then there is also the flowering of ephemerals such as Dutchman's breeches observed by Kate (from Brandeis and who's joining EwA's summer internship program).

📊 Thanks to all for great biodiversity records this week!  - 268 observations total over 163 species. Curious about this week's records that have been validated by the iNat community so far? > here.


Running tally: To date, we recorded 60,980 observations of 6,009 distinct species! Check our EwA umbrella project and see the details per site/observer & more... > here
