The author shares experiences as he had several bird-viewing in various location in the U.S. He cites Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory and Fruitgrowers Reservoir as the places where he visited and had seen various species of birds. He mentions rough-legged hawk, bald eagles, sandhill cranes, and waterfowl as birds that he had seen during his visits. Other than this, he likewise cites the Annie Proulx's "Red Desert: History of a Place," which has allegedly refused to sentimentalize the Red Desert.

    Abstract Multiscale analyses are widely employed for wildlife-habitat studies. In most cases, however, each scale is considered discrete and little emphasis is placed on incorporating or measuring the responses of wildlife to resources across multiple scales. We modeled the responses of three...

    The association of Antarctic krill Euphausia superba with the under-ice habitat was investigated in the Lazarev Sea (Southern Ocean) during austral summer, autumn and winter. Data were obtained using novel Surface and Under Ice Trawls (SUIT), which sampled the 0-2 m surface layer both under sea...

    Habitat quality and the impact of natural enemies might profoundly affect metapopulation dynamics and viability. However, their relative impact has usually been considered independently. Here we address the question of how caterpillar habitat quality and parasitism prevalence interact to shape...
