Welcome to 2021! The new year is off to a great start, with 59 observers making 162 observations between Sunday, December 27 to Saturday, January 2, 2021. Among the top five observers, @carrieseltzer and @ronwertz each observed 15 examples of life in the Anacostia watershed; @dtread1 contributed 14; @stephen220 contributed 12; and @rauvbbj contributed 9. Rounding out the top 10, @kristin-marie contributed 7; @coffeefirst, @environeill, and @jmgconsult each contributed 6; and @cczoom each contributed 5. 37 people contributed one observation, 6 people contributed two observations, and 4 people contributed 3 observations.

Actinopterygii, Amphibia and Reptilia were the least observed Taxon, with one observation each.

And speaking of the New Year, City Nature Challenge 2021 is planned for Friday, April 30 through Monday, May 3 for observations. Identifications will continue until May 9. On May 10, the outcome of the event will be announced. Due to COVID, the activities most likely will center on individual observations and virtual collaborations. Observers in the Anacostia watershed are key contributors to the overall observations for the Washington, DC region. Share the word, mark your calendars, and think about all the favorite places that are home to the amazing living things that make up our world!
