Making your home a haven for bats is easier than it may seem. Bats may get a bad rap due to spooky myths and legends, but they are beyond helpful to humans. Having bat habitat around your home benefits for other wildlife, too! Bats are nature’s insect control, keeping mosquito populations in check - and the pests that eat your garden plants. Learn more about bats and how you can make your home a healthy and safe home for them.

Happy first day of summer!

Stay cool this summer by rolling around in your favorite mud patch, OR by visiting a refuge within the USFWS National Wildlife Refuge System near you. http://ow.ly/Gmgn50JE5jQ

If you're searching for summer nature spots to find wildlife, we have suggestions. Beat the heat AND the crowds at your local national wildlife refuge: http://ow.ly/CfaR50JE5jP

Look for some High Temperature records to be broken today! (mainly in central Nevada). First heat of the summer, so it may feel as warm as the middle of the summer, even though it is not as hot. Try to stay cool & hydrated!

06/09/2022

Warming trend continues today through Saturday, with much above normal temperatures. Friday is expected to see the highest temperatures, with many valleys reaching into the middle to upper 90's! (a taste of summer!). This puts northern and central Nevada, in a Moderate Heat Risk on Friday, meaning those who are sensitive to heat, especially those without effective cooling (and dont forget the elderly and pets!) need to stay somewhere cool and remain hydrated. A cooling trend is not expected to provide relief until Sunday. Please go to weather.gov/lkn and click on the map for your complete 7 day forecast.

Have you ever wondered how sand is formed? You might be surprised to learn that sand comes from many locations, sources, and environments.It can form when rocks break down from weathering and eroding, or as the by-products of living things such as single-celled, shelled organisms and even waste from fish like this parrotfish! https://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/sand.html

Scorpions might not be your favorite creature we have at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, but maybe they should be!

Scorpions have one of the neatest tricks around – these nocturnal creatures glow in the dark under a blacklight. This continues long after they die, and even scorpion fossils can glow!

Scientists aren’t completely sure why they do this, but one thought is they use it to help keep them safe. If a scorpion can see that it is glowing, then it knows it isn’t completely hidden from predators looking for a snack.

Try out the blacklight trick for yourself tonight, but we recommend not doing it in your own backyard. Some things, like how many scorpions might be hiding on your palm tree, may be better left unknown.

Have you ever wondered why Gambel’s quail (Callipepla gambelii) have topknots on their heads? They’re adorable, certainly, but it seems like it might be a bit in the way at times.

While both male and females have the topknot, it is much more prominent in the males. Studies have shown that the males use these to intimidate each other for status. Next time you see a covey of quail at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, see if you can spot the top male – his topknot will be held high up, while others will be more flattened.

[Image description: Gambel’s quail drinking water from a puddle at the picnic area at Red Spring. From the forehead area is a collection of black feathers roughly the same length of his head that curve together like a black comma. The tip of these feathers are resting in the water, creating a ripple larger than the ripple from its beak.]

It's an owl...it's a gull...it's...a red-tailed hawk!?

It's true: Those few pigmented feathers and the dark eyes mean that, rather than being albino, this bird has a rare genetic condition called leucism. Cornell Lab estimates that out of 2 million red-tailed hawks in North America, only about 360 are leucistic, making them highly rare to see -- but this one visited Ohio River Islands National Wildlife Refuge!

You have now entered...the peak migration season.

On any given night during this time of year, millions of birds are flying across our skies on journeys spanning hundreds and even thousands of miles. Sadly, the light coming from our cities and homes can pose serious threats to these birds during their night migrations. That's why we're using on May 14th to raise awareness about the negative impacts of artificial light on birds and take steps to "dim the lights for birds at night!"
