Many of you will have seen Brian Keelan’s recent report of a 2014 big mammal day. It turns out Brian has been interested in mammals for a long time but only stumbled upon the mammalwatching blog and site recently. He has some great information and I’m delighted to say he is happy to share it!
Brian has been kind enough to send me this page on bat recording and identification in California. If others have similar information for other areas please do let me know.
Brian has also started a list of where to see some of the USA’s harder mammals, with some specific (detailed) locations for a bunch of species that are quite tricky to see (he put this together for birders). What a pity that we didn’t know about this in time for Vladimir’s upcoming guide on where to see the mammals of north america. Brian’s page on “mammal finding in the ABA area” is here.
In the longer term he and I are thinking about trying to add information from others to make this a more complete reference for the rarer species. But more on this in due course….
