I went out in search of trilling toads and while they trilled away when I first found them the day before, they stayed silent throughout my podcast. Lips were sealed! The photo here is of one of them, clearly just waiting me out 🙂
In this episode we have a reading from The Virginia Naturalist entitled: “Finches Flocking to Local Feeders” – a timely subject in the heart of winter with the songs of birds like the White-throated Sparrow singing out it’s beautiful melodies.
Eleni just started on her first full week with us and we’re happy to have her on board for the summer. In this podcast you’ll get to hear in her own words a bit about why she wanted to take on this internship with Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy and what she looks forward to doing over the course of the summer.
In this episode, we talk all about our local groundhogs – their life cycle, the burrows they dig, their hibernation and their raising of young.
For this episode of our podcast, we are joined by Mike Hayslett, expert herpetologist and vernal pools specialist. For the past 11 years, Mike has been joining Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy in an exploration of our spring wetlands and their inhabitants and has helped us learn about the really special wild places that Loudoun has to offer.
Foxes are great backyard wildlife that play an excellent role in our ecosystem. They live in urban, suburban as well as wooded habitats so its quite likely that there are foxes around you. Sneaky, huh.
Eastern Screech Owls…they’re one of our smallest owls here in Loudoun yet also one of our most common. In this episode, we talk about their nesting, their habitat needs and setting up an owl house.
Flying squirrels – yes they do exist! In this episode we talk about their habits and habitats as well as how to attract them to a tree where you can watch them and enjoy the show!
In this episode we are joined by Spring Ligi and Joe Coleman to talk about the Loudoun Bird Atlas Project that we just launched.
In this episode we talk all about Eastern Box Turtles and answer that question …. why did the turtle cross the road? Box Turtles are great wild neighbors with every encounter being a special one. Their populations are in serious decline however, so it’s up to us to help them.
