I'm a herpetologist by training but a naturalist at heart. My masters thesis is looking into the Panamint alligator lizard, Elgaria panamintina. In particular I'm focusing on identifying its range and testing out a variety of novel techniques which may benefit the field of herpetology as a whole. I post things that interest me and often post updates on what I'm doing in the vertebrate museum, in the field, or in the lab.
This guy shoots way too close to the houses (illegally close) and either has the worst aim ever or is taking way too many mourning doves. There’s only a small handful of collared doves in the area, but there’s oodles of mourning doves back there.
Alas, unless he shoots someone I get to listen to him shoot about a hundred times a day for the next two weeks (as I am not going to hop my fence and go looking for a possible poacher/guy shooting a shotgun… by far the worst advice any law enforcement person has ever given me as a general public person).
