After graduating from Cornell in 1897 and became an apprentice to the painter Abbott H. Thayer. In 1898, he made his first expedition, with Thayer and his son Gerald, to Florida.[1] In 1899, Fuertes accompanied E. H.

Fuertes later traveled across much of the United States and to many countries in pursuit of birds, including the Bahamas, Jamaica, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, and Ethiopia. Fuertes collaborated with Frank Chapman, curator of the American Museum of Natural History, on many assignments including field research, background dioramas at the museum, and book illustrations. While on a collecting expedition with Chapman in Mexico, Fuertes discovered a species of oriole. Chapman named it Icterus fuertesi, commonly called Fuertes’s oriole after his friend.

How to Build a Rainchain

(0)
I’ve always been interested in rainchains and wondered how they would work here in the northeast where we get some substantial downfalls. Well, I finally made one. As I discovered, there are many, many ways to do this … only limited by your imagination. In my case I purchased some cute little blue pails from the local Dollar Store and some plastic chain from my hardware store. Everything else was scrounged or recycled materials. I just removed the handle from a pail and CAREFULLY drilled a one inch hole in the bottom, passed the chain through to the calculated link and crimp the handle back in place. I repeated this until I had the length I needed and voila … my rainchain. I was curious to see how it would work of course, but fortunately there was no rush because I must have chased the rains … nothing happened for many days. But then on September 29, 2012 the rain finally came down. The rainchain worked great, but the water just went into a big pail that overflowed allowing the water to go where we didn’t want it to go! So … I found a 2.5 gal plastic pail that once held drywall compound, drilled holes in the bottom and top with a big hole to accommodate a scrap plastic “pipe” that went to the bottom of the pail. I put some window screen over the top of the pail top so dirt wouldn’t drain into the pail and covered it all with soil … except the “pipe” opening of course. Now the rain drains down the chain, into the pipe and collects in the underground pail where it soaks into the earth. Now it doesn’t flow along the ground to the house entrance like it did before …VICTORY!!

BE A PEST - Program for Estuary Steward Trainees

(0)
Just about everybody now knows that we have to take care of our environment if we want to enjoy our lives. If you live near a river or stream, you’ve probably spent hours wandering about watching all of the life that depends on these unique habitats. You’ve probably also seen lots of garbage and pipes that spew smelly stuff into the waters. Apparently not all of us understand the importance of a clean environment. So … we need to teach each other how to become stewards - folks that make it their business to look after the environment where they live. What does a PEST do? An estuary is that part of a river where it meets and mixes with the ocean. In this case, a steward is someone who cares for the land, water and air so that healthy ecosystems can be passed on to future generations. And, well, we all know what a trainee is – someone who is still learning how to do something – and that’s all of us! So, while being a ‘PEST’, you are someone who is learning how to protect our coast for future generations and actually helping to do just that! PESTS become actual card-carrying student members of the sponsoring group and they get to participate and volunteer for numerous programs where students can volunteer to help collect samples or collect data in the field.
