BobHirshon3_200x268.jpgI don't want you to miss even one of these wonderful vlogs by Bob Hirshon who attended Bioblitz 2013, so I'm providing a summary list for you to follow his adventures in Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve just south of New Orleans. Learn about pirates, the late night amphibian inventory walk, and the morning bird inventory. Learn how a bayou is different from a swamp. Hear the night sounds. Meet the migrating armadillos. Consider what it means to the animals when earth changes are fast, like a volcano, earthquake, meteorite, or hurricane, or fairly quickly like the Mississippi Delta bayous and the glaciers of the ice ages, and some forces that take millions of years, like plate tectonics.
