        Home page of the Region 4 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, representing Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, the US Virgin Island, and Puerto Rico, a bureau in the Department of Interior. Our mission is, working with others, to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of. Some mammals, such as the Virginia opossum, are found throughout all the regions, whereas others, like the red squirrel, are restricted in range, occurring in one region or in only part of a region. Other species, like the black bear, are found in more than one region in .

      By the time birds evolved about million years ago, they were separated. And as the world’s climate and geography changed, birds evolved into different habitats. Some new species arose and others disappeared (a species lasted ab years). Speciation in birds, like other animals, is primarily due to geographic isolation. 1. Anhinga The anhinga is a fairly large (inch) diving bird that looks a little like a skinny cormorant. It is long and slender, with a long sharp bill it uses to spear fish underwater. Another name for this bird is 'snake bird,' because it frequently swims with just its head above water, looking like a snake. Anhingas also soar on thermals like hawks in midday.

      With the birds packed into this smaller region, the species is even more vulnerable to habitat loss in the tropics than in northern breeding areas. Hold to Expose Birds observed within an hour at. Geography - for the purposes of this exercise (or until someone informs me of an official designation), I am defining the Bellarine Peninsula as all the land east of the line roughly between Pt Henry (including the western shore of Pt Henry along Stingaree Bay and Corio Bay) and Pt Impossible at the mouth of Thompson Creek, west of Breamlea. This includes Moolap, Lake Connewarre, Reedy Lake.

Get this from a library. The geography, birds, and mammals of the Perry River region. [Harold C Hanson] -- Report based on data and collections made in The Irrawaddy River or Ayeyarwady River is a river that flows from north to south through is the country's largest river and most important commercial waterway.

It begins where the N'mai and Mali rivers join together. The river ends at the Andaman drainage basin is aboutsquare kilometres (, sq mi) and covers a large part of : Myitkyina, Mandalay, Bhamo.

The largest and most dangerous reptile of the Amazon River basin, the black caiman (technically a species of alligator) can approach 20 feet in length and weigh up to half a ton. As the apex predators of their lush, humid ecosystem, black caimans will eat pretty much anything that moves, ranging from mammals to birds to their fellow reptiles.

And mammals of the Perry River region book is also found in the seasonally flooded savannas in the region. This massive carnivore can grow up to 5 m in length and is the Amazon River’s largest predator.

Birds, mammals, fish, and reptiles constitute its food : Oishimaya Sen Nag. Peacock, any of three species of resplendent birds of the pheasant family. The group is made up of the blue, or Indian, peacock (Pavo cristatus) of India and Sri Lanka; the green, or Javanese, peacock (P. muticus) of Southeast Asia; and the Congo peacock (Afropavo.

Birds, more than any other vertebrate (an animal with a backbone), dominate Georgia's landscapes. The state's diversity of habitats and physical features, from the northern mountains to the swamps and coastal islands, provides habitats for approximately species of birds that live in Georgia at some point during their n 90 and species breed and nest in south Georgia.

The higher Himalayan region is home to many species of raptors and birds of prey. Nepal’s national bird, the Danphe or Impeyen pheasant, is also found in the Himalayan region. A rare bird known as Jerdon’s baza was sighted in Nepal while there is an effort to conserve Sarus cranes in Lumbini.

His ability to spot and find the elusive birds and mammals has earned him a big name in the wildlife tourism circle. Pradeep has done a documentary on Crocodiles with National Geography Chanel and is a member of IUCN-SSC Crocodile Specialist Group.

Birds are vertebrate animals adapted for flight. Many can also run, jump, swim, and dive. Some, like penguins, have lost the ability to fly but retained their wings.

Flora. There are rich sedge meadows in the river's 2 mi ( km)-wide delta area. Fauna. Bearded seal, bowhead whale, harbor seal, narwhal, polar bear, ringed seal, walrus, and white whale frequent the area. Boas River and associated wetlands is a Canadian Important Bird Area, site #NU (The elevation varies from 0 m (0 ft) to 60 m ( ft) above sea level.

Foxes, coyotes, rats, and rabbits are all nocturnal desert mammals. Snakes and lizards are familiar desert reptiles. Insects such as moths and flies are abundant in the desert. Most desert birds are restricted to areas near water, such as river banks.

However, some birds, such as the roadrunner, have adapted to life in the desert. The river for which they’re named is the French term for “marsh of the swans,” dating from the days when the Trumpeter Swan was a more common bird than it is now.

Today these two areas comprise one of the state’s top birding locations, a rewarding mix of bottomland hardwood forest along the Marais des Cygnes River, grassland, and.

Oklahoma, constituent state of the U.S. It borders Colorado and Kansas to the north, Missouri and Arkansas to the east, Texas to the south and west, and New Mexico to the west of its Panhandle region.

Oklahoma was admitted as the 46th state of the union in Its capital is Oklahoma City. Describing all of Colombia's birds, Steven Hilty and William Brown bring together information on one of the world's largest avifaunas-nearly 1, species. Over half of all the species of birds in South America are included, thus making the book useful in regions adjacent to Colombia, as well as in the country s: The vegetation and unperturbed tree life along the Rupununi river, is a haven for rare species of bird-life.

A biodiversity study conducted by BAT (South Rupununi Biodiversity Assessment Team), discovered a total of bird species living along the river. The critically endangered Red Siskin (Carduelis cucullata), was one of the many species of bird that were re-discovered in the Rupununi river.

The Great Lakes region supports a diverse fauna that includes numerous species of mammals, amphibians, birds, reptiles, and fishes. There are more than species of fishes found in the Great Lakes including Atlantic salmon, bluegill, brook trout, Chinook salmon, Coho salmon, freshwater drum, lake sturgeon, lake trout, lake whitefish, northern.

The White River Badlands has been the site of much interest for paleontologists since the mid's. During these early explorations, scientists began finding fossil remains of many large mammals.

These interesting discoveries soon attracted prominent paleontologists, such as the famous Dr Joseph Leidy and Prof O. Marsh to visit there and. DEPICTIONS OF ECOLOGICAL CONCERNS FOUND IN ROCK-ART The Keep River region has a complex body of engraved and painted rock-art, distinct from but with links to regions to the east, west and south.

At least four major periods of figurative rock-art have been identified with differing subject matters and ages.

Similar species are shown, and distinguishing characteristics are noted. Further information in the bird's habits describes the typical song and other vocalizations, behavior, breeding, nesting, population, and conservation concerns.

The Greater Annamite Mountains, lying east of the Mekong River, provide one of the last intact natural protections from climate change. Home to around 30 million people from 70 ethnic groups, the natural ecosystems within the Annamites provide communities with food and water, natural resources to build from or trade, and an environment in which to practice centuries old customs.

Field Guide to the Birds of Cuba contains: - species accounts including habitat descriptions, similar species, range, status, nesting and feeding habits, and vocalizations.

-- checklists of endemic species and subspecies. -- background on the geography, climate, geology, paleontology, and natural history of Cuba. -- maps that show regional.

The Amazon rainforest covers approximately 60% of Peru, which is the largest extension in any country after Brazil. Peru has the largest number of birds and the third largest number of mammals in the world. This is largely due to the rich biodiversity found within the Peruvian Amazon region.In describing Australia's twenty-four species of birds of prey, Olsen relates their complex biology to the continent's unique geography and ecology.

She explains why species such as the Nankeen Kestrel and Brown Falcon can range widely from coastal cliffs and river .
