This Friday frilly was also a bit of a ... When frillneck lizards are released, they immediately run up the nearest, tallest object for safety. It's usually a tree. In this case, it was me.

While this wins the award for worst camera placement (the nest is in the top left corner), this video shows how hard work for their food! They eat invertebrates in the soil. Always scratching!

Pretty terrible day today. Spent most of it getting my car out of a very deep, very stinky puddle of mud mixed with hippo crap. But being greeted by cubs from the Munge clan on my way home made up for it!

Some days I collect a bunch of waterfowl nesting data. Other days I only manage to squish a single mosquito. Apparently June 21, 2018 was the second type of day.

Here is a leech that was unsuccessful in its quest to pierce my flesh and consume my blood. Many of its brethren were better at it. Parts of me are still very itchy.

I know people make jokes about lawnmowers destroying field sites but someone literally mowed a lawn and destroyed five of my samples

Today's msg from the field is that working on tiny, wild birds in rainforests is super hard. So many things can fail & most will, sometimes catastrophically. We post beautiful pics and joke about but staying positive when it doesn't work is really hard.

Any time I deal with dye (fluorescein), it's a big mess. This time it wasn't my fault! (Yay!) But it'll take a while before that all bleeds out. (Boo)

Mud and I have not been getting along today. Lost one of my Tevas in about 3 feet of mud and blew out both of my flip flops. Thank god I still have knee boots I can wear.

Looks like I 'win' ! I'm not sure if it truly counts as winning but was a great adventure anyways. Shout out to the elephant that chased me and trashed my equipment, and for making this.

Is still a thing? Because I just accidentally cleared an SD card on a camera that I had set in front of a fox den 😭😭😭

and altruism at its finest. We were so close to finishing this culvert survey without any issues. I fell down first with Emily trying to help me. We did find bats though :)

Today's CO2 efflux measurements took us above the clouds, until our flux meter broke and we had to go home to get another one Changes in CO2 efflux over time provide an insight into magma behaviour underground and may indicate movement

When turns to ! We forgot the arrows to get our lines into the trees for our powerful owl nets. A very nice straight eucalypt branch and a number of misfires later and the nets are up. Video by

A little today. Got stuck in an old warthog burrow while following M-376 this morning. But nothing a few big rocks & a highlift jack can’t solve. Sadly,by the time I got out, M-376 was long gone...

I can understand if no one wants to work with me again, but 15+ yrs kind of adds up. Also, needs a square for "Detained by military police"
