Welcome back to the BioBlitz! Oklahoma podcast! In this episode we are chatting with RJ Baltierra, a field biologist from Washington state who spent two summers in Oklahoma collecting data for the Oklahoma Breeding Bird Atlas. RJ is a naturalist who also enjoys looking for herps (reptiles and amphibians), butterflies, and odonates (dragonflies and damselflies) while he’s out in the field. Listen to hear more about his time exploring Oklahoma and life as a field biologist, and his perspective on the unique biology of our great state!You can read more about the Breeding Bird Atlas or purchase a copy of the first edition from the Sutton Aviation Research Center here: https://www.suttoncenter.org/research/ok-bird-atlases-surveys/breeding-bird-atlas/Also mentioned in this episode is the book “A Field Guide to Oklahoma's Amphibians and Reptiles” by Greg and Lynnette Sievert, which is available for purchase from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation here:https://license.gooutdoorsoklahoma.com/Shop/Inventory?groupId=33 This podcast is a project of BioBlitz!

Welcome Back Everyone! to the BioBlitz! Oklahoma podcast!  We have had a bit of a hiatus because things got busy for Angelina and me as things started to open up after the winter COVID lockdown.  I am embarrassed to say that I recorded this podcast back in February!  I think we were in the middle of that arctic blast that seems so long ago, now that we are in the middle of summer.  In fact, in the recording you can hear the peeping of my newly arrive chicken chicks which were under the heat lamp in the next room. Those little ladies are full grown and should be laying eggs any day now.  Anyway – you are finally getting my last recorded episode in which I talk with Jane Breckinridge – a butterfly farmer, non-profit director, and pollinator conservation advocate.  She works extensively with tribes in Oklahoma to restore and protect pollinator habitat and provide economic opportunities in rural Oklahoma.  Here are the links to the organizations we talk about in this episode:Tribal Alliance for Pollinators:   https://tribalallianceforpollinators.com/ Monarch Watch: https://www.monarchwatch.org/  We are planning to host our fall BioBlitz! Oklahoma weekend in person this year.  The dates are Oct 1-3 and we will be at Roman Nose State Park.  Details will be announced in August and registration will open August 16.  Stay informed by following our facebook page or signing up for the eNewsletter on our website.https://biosurvey.ou.edu/bioblitzok/ https://www.facebook.com/bioblitzoklahoma This podcast is a project of BioBlitz!
