#30 of 2012

I hope this challenge will get ‘mites of a feather to flock together... :lol: :lol: :lol:

AND in significant numbers… for a change!

#1 – Last week I posted this photograph of feather mites. There are possibly tens of thousands of feather mite species in existence, most of which can be divided into four types (superfamilies) of bird-living mites. Which are these four groups of mites? (This answer will count 2 points)

#2 – Mites are permanent parasites living exclusively on birds, causing them all kinds of stress by feeding on various substances produced by the bird. Some bird observations are suggesting that birds can alleviate the infestation of mites by a natural remedy. What bird behavior constitutes such a remedy?


Have fun!

I don't know if it is my imagination... To me it feels as if the action on the SANParks forums are waning?

Way back in the days this place used to be rockin'!!!

If I'm right the question is who is our competition?

And what are they doing that is causing our "participants" to move somewhere else (to their sites) :hmz:

Here I am on a (very cold) Tuesday evening checking out the handful of entries for the Bird ID Challenge and I'm getting the echo... like shouting into an empty house...
