Have you ever watched weather radar at night during migration season?

US National Weather Service Key West Florida
Have you seen the radar clutter lately? It's picking up on bird (no, not snowbirds) migration season! In addition to weather, radars can detect large groups of birds and insects. Notice the big spike in activity just after sunset last night, about 1 second into the loop.

Biological discoveries are always exciting, at least if you’re a biologist. Imagine how much more exciting that is when the discovery is right in your home town. That’s what contributor Joshua Rose describes in the October 5 Earth Matters, an account of finding a particular species of dragonfly in Amherst.

P.S. If you’re unable to access the Gazette page, wait until Monday or Tuesday and go to the Hitchcock Center website, www.hitchcockcenter.org, where you’ll find the article on the home page.

Here’s the September 20 Earth Matters, by John Sinton. John describes an outing with several experienced naturalists in the wilds of Northampton last June, part of the Hitchcock Center’s annual Biothon. It’s a fundraiser for the Center but also a great opportunity to appreciate the diversity of life right around us.
