there has been a challenge posted via geekdad blog that they got from this blog.
the challenge is to Identify a 100 plants species within a mile of your home.
geekdad has expanded "...The 100-Species Challenge to include every living thing we could find and photograph – plants, animals, and indeterminate micro-organisms included."
so I will attempt a count down to see if we can identify 100 species.
I found a animal checklist site for BC.
#100. Amanita muscaria var. flavivolvata or Fly Agaric
#99 Pileated Woodpecker eating from a
#98 chokecherry tree.
#97 skunk(there is aparently a few different species of skunk but I haven't seen much info on them yet)
EDIT: Mephitis mephitis, also known as the "stripped skunk". there are 2 species in BC the stripped skunks and spotted skunks.
#96 great blue heron
#95 grey squirrel
#96 Raccoon mother and baby
#95 in the Juniper bushes
